    you can zoom in and see that there is a new building with few windows (which I have seen labeled as the high school) near the plant, and the Middle School was across the railroad tracks. http://binged.it/...

      that's the 'new' part of town - most of West is well south of the fertilizer plant, and straddles the tracks. They seem to have kept the football field from the original HS, and it's near the center of town, along with the older elementary school.

      Actually, it looks like a nice town to live in, but I bet a lot of the people living there work in Waco.

      (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)
