Selena

Selena is mentioned twice in the notable people section. The first time she is mentioned is as Selena Quintinilla and then as simply Selena. Recommend that the two references to her are combined under Selena Quintinilla, so as to continue to group her with her siblings. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:6000:F204:6F00:3C6A:8771:2FCD:2818 (talk) 20:27, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Untitled

Residents of both Calallen and Flour Bluff (and occasionally Clarkwood and Annaville) often refer to those places as separate communities, but in every legal sense they are a part of Corpus Christi and have been for some time.

Calallen primarily refers to itself as separate out of a sense of elitism.

I was raised in Annaville/Calallen areas in the 1950s-60s. A great many of the current residents were, as well. Corpus Christi 'forcibly' annexed from Tuloso-Midway to the Nueces at Calallen in the early sixties and it was many years later that those areas received any benefit of city services of any kind, other than higher taxes. I would imagine this is why residents still think of themselves as only periferally a part of Corpus. Ditto Flour Bluff and Clarkwood. When I left the area in 1964 we still had to flag down a Greyhound or Continental bus on Hwy 9 (Leopard st) into downtown to go to the library or the beach. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.55.137.250 (talk) 00:50, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Crime

I came here because I was told that Corpus Christi has a relatively low murder rate, just about two or three times higher than in Europe, 5 per 100 000, one of the lowest in the USA. At the same time the crime rate, in general, is very high. Strange.

Origin of the name?

Can someone who knows please add information on why this city is named after a Christian feast? --Angr/comhrá 10:06, 13 May 2005 (UTC)

The article does not fully tell the naming of the city. This is a quote from the City of Corpus Christi's official web site:

"In 1519, on the Roman Catholic Feast Day of Corpus Christi, Spanish explorer Alonzo Alvarez de Pineda discovered a lush semi-tropical bay on what is now the southern coast of Texas. The bay, and the city that later sprung up there, took the name of the feast day celebrating the 'Body of Christ.'"


Actually it IS commonly called "The Armpit of Texas". Here in Corpus Christi, it's pretty universal. Super high humidity,


Also known as 'The Texas Riviera'

Concerts

This article doesn't mention the American Bank Center or Concrete Street Theater?-Giant89 16:44, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

History

Why does this city have no history? All the other cities do. - Teofil Bartlomiej 02:57, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Needs something on the hurricane (one of the deadliest in U.S. history) at a minimum. Something on its role in the Mexican-American war would be good, too.--12.47.123.121 20:12, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

_________________________

I second that -- please have some history.

In Ulysses S. Grant's Memoirs, he devotes a chapter to his experiences there during the Mexican-American War, just as a hint to the fun info someone can find on Corpus Christi's history:

"Early in September the regiment left New Orleans for Corpus Christi, now in Texas. Ocean steamers were not then common, and the passage was made in sailing vessels. At that time there was not more than three feet of water in the channel at the outlet of Corpus Christi Bay; the debarkation, therefore..."

This article reminds me of an advertisment because of the way it lists all the famous people from there and thing to do. It doesn't sound very encyclopedic to me.    Codu    talk    contribs    email   23:08, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

what's with the day spa ad in the middle of this, is it really that much of an amazing thing? -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.174.162.235 (talk) 23:44, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Semiarid?

I noticed that the region is described as "Semiarid." What exactly does this mean? Corpus Christi proper receives an average of 30.4 inches of rain per year (see this site) and the description of semi-arid reports it as areas receiving between 10-20 inches of rainfall per year. However, even inland sections of the Corpus Christi area, such as the city of Alice, receive around 30 inches of rainfall per year (Alice area profile). So, what exactly does this "region" entail? I would think that a better fit would be "humid subtropical" for the whole region, not just the city, and other sections of Wikipedia seem to support my assertion Humid subtropical climate

Public Radio

Just Wondering, is there any specific reason that the public radio station isn't on the page?

It's: KEDT-90.3FM "KEDT-FM"

Again, just wondering... Ddreier 23:32, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Government

the (current? first?) mayor linked to is listed as a segregationalist that died in the 70's. for some reason, this doesn't seem accurate. Superdupergc 19:36, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Needs major work

This article really needs some TLC. There shouldn't be a section called "Futurists" or "Activists" or anything like that. In fact, a listing of notable people from the city really only belongs in a category.. see Dallas, Texas and Category:People from Dallas for example. There should not be a list of "awards" won by the city in the lead. The fact that the city is blanketed in WiFi coverage also does not belong in the lead. There is only one photo. Demoting article (start class). -- drumguy8800 C T 06:56, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Temperature

The ISO unit is Degrees of Celsius (or Kelvin), not Farenheit. The article is clearly in the latter, but it doesn't even mention it. Sloppy copy-paste by someone? Zarkow 124.120.79.33 12:08, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Economy Section

Made some updates to the Economy Section. Colehowardatx 04:41, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Demonym?

Does Corpus Christi have one? if so i've never heard one
J.J. September 13

It should be Corpus Christian or the non-controversial Corpus Christan. -AMAPO (talk) 03:56, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

"Gang Crime"

Why is there a subheading here for gangs? I think that's disrespectful to the city's image. There is no more gang crime here than any other city and I don't see a heading for "gangs. Very unprofessional. Sam -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.203.98.131 (talk) 12:32, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Corpus Christi Alternative Schooling

You Forgot to mention Richard Milburn Acadamy -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.84.251.146 (talk) 20:15, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Structure

Hi. I'm going through all the US Cities (as per List of United States cities by population) in an effort to provide some uniformity in structure. Anyone have an issue with me restructuring this article as per Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline. I won't be changing any content, merely the order. Occasionally, I will also move a picture just to clean up spacing issues. I've already gone through the top 20 or so on the above list, if you'd like to see how they turned out. Thoughts? Onel5969 (talk) 19:45, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Notable People

Hi. This section has reached a length where it should probably have its own page, and a link put here. Any issues with me creating it? As I do, I'll try to add others to the list. Onel5969 (talk) 14:03, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

There's a bit of an edit war going on with this section, which makes no sense. Note that at least one US House Representative is already listed on the page (Texas 17th), a district that does not even include Corpus Christi. Yet, it is somehow unreasonable to include the 27th, which actually does include Corpus Christi? My IP address was definitely not a US House IP, and I have no connection to the House, so stop making asinine statements about conflicts of interest. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by Chitinid (talk o contribs) 03:06, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

This sort of section has two appropriate formats. If short enough, it ought to include anyone who demonstrably passes WP:BIO and who demonstrably lived in the city. If that would produce too long of a list, it ought to be split out into a freestanding list page, and this section should become either a summary (the most important city residents) or purely a "see also" to the freestanding list. As long as we're attempting to list everyone, we should definitely include any federal legislators (and any state legislators too) who demonstrably lived in Corpus Christi. Nyttend (talk) 04:36, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Infobox photo

Another editor, Dgtx42, has made several attempts to change the photo in the infobox. While I am not adverse to changing the photo, their first selection was a somewhat non-descript photo of an intersection somewhere in the city:

Downtown Corpus Christi.jpg

While their second choice was a blurry photo, which seemed to highlight the field, which takes up fully half of the photograph: Update: (Has been cropped to remove excess field area)

Downtown Corpus Christi Night.jpg

Thoughts? Suggestions? Not trying to get into an edit war, but those choices just don't seem to improve the article. Onel5969 (talk) 21:40, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

To add, Onel5969, insists that this is a better photo. However, this photo is extremely outdated and bland. None of those buildings are current, nor does this highlight any other feature of downtown, aside from One Shoreline Plaza, and the old Omni Hotel. This photo is also blurry, albeit slightly so:

Indulin AA-86

I just started Indulin AA-86, about the chemical identified as a water contaminant in Corpus Christi. It's possible there is a duplicate effort going on somewhere else about Wikipedia about this (I'm surprised nobody had started it before me!) so I should note that here. I'm not sure it's notable to link to from this article about the city as a whole, but maybe someone on the ground there can look it over and see if I have anything wrong.
