Memorial Medical Center-Lufkin Bringing Joy To Patients With New Secret Weapon

When I go to the fair, I'm constantly amazed at the new sites that typically turn a vacant dust bowl into a sprawling metropolis for ten days or so.

Not withstanding the carnie rides of death and games that seem impossible to conquer, there are two sensations that draw humans to the fairgrounds.  Nope, not seeing and touching, but rather, smelling and hearing.

Texas Kids Play Outside Their Home, Mom Arrested [VIDEO]

The City of La Porte (Texas) police department website says "...a professional organization that prides itself in delivering the highest level of service possible."

Inspecting their unsolved crime log dating back to September 2011, it appears that burglary is the crime of choice, but this cop blotter actually looks great compared to other cities in the country with similar population.

So, on the surface, after getting a first hand glance at potential lawlessness, La Porte, may be a nice place to settle down and raise a family.

Texas Highway to Turn Into ‘Autobahn’ [VIDEO]

Have you ever dreamed of driving in the Indy 500?  Felt the "need for speed"?  Sped down an open highway just long enough to prove your hot rod was all that?

Well, guess what?  Your urge to test automobile aerodynamics is a mere four hours away, and if you look forward to riding roller coasters at an amusement park, then you should get the very same rush about taking the family on this excursion.

U.S. Lands on Mars; What Will Exploration of The ‘Red Planet’ Reveal? [VIDEO]

Don't mean to be critical of the space program (NASA), but is spending money on a trip to Mars really beneficial  --  to anyone?

Considering the price-tag for this overrated movie was 2.5 Billion, I'll bet you that lots of people could have health care coverage today considering the dollars spent on this seven month travel expenditure.

Go for a Ride in a Formula One Race Car Without Leaving Your Living Room

Going for a ride in a high performance race car might look like a blast, but it’s quite dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. These are powerful, fuel injected vehicles that respond to the slightest movements and reactions. One slight turn or brake can mean the different between setting a world record for the fastest lap on the Circuits of the Americas or the most compound fractures sustained in a car accident.

Teenage Texan, Timothy Dow, On The Music Scene

As a violin maestro myself (well, I really haven't played since grade school), it gives me great pride to recognize Huntington's Timothy Dow as a connoisseur of the "strings".

What makes Dow's story most intriguing is the fact that he was home schooled on playing music.  Not just any music mind you.  We're talking the "classical" biggies -- Tchaikovsky (CHI-kov-SKI), and Beethoven (BAY-toe-VEN).  And here I thought my accomplishments of  playing "Mary Had A Little Lamb", and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", were going to send me to the Royal Philharmonic stage at the tender age of nine.  HA!!

Transit of Venus will be Visible in Lufkin and Nacogdoches

When you hear the phrase, “Transit of Venus,” it sounds like it might be a band name or a good club with velvet ropes and a line out the door on a Saturday night. But it has nothing to do with pop culture. It really does have something to do with the planet Venus, and it’s a rare event that we’ll be able to witness today in East Texas.

She Did It – 13 Years of Perfect Attendance

A few weeks ago we brought you the story of Loren Huffstetler, who hadn't missed a day of school her entire life and was on her way to a pretty amazing attendance streak that stretched from kindergarten and elementary school, to middle school and junior high, then high school. Well, the school year has ended now for Loren at the Hudson ISD, and she did it. Perfect attendance feat accomplished.

That's thirteen years of not missing a day. She's never taken a sick day or faked the flu to get a day off, so she doesn't know what it means to make up work or ask a classmate to borrow notes. Pretty impressive!

What's the secret?
