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?

‘Star Wars’ Gets Classic Rock Makeover – May the Fourth Be With You [VIDEO]

Today is Star Wars day!  Kid you not.  Hard to believe it's been 35 years since Princess Leia, C3PO, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Vader graced the drive-in.  Yes, I actually did watch this movie with Penny Parnalavarious sitting shotgun, and not once did we steam up the car windows.

Prescription Drugs Take Back Day!

We all hear in the news about the "war on drugs", but according to the last 15 or so stories I've paid attention to, according to the experts (?), it's a losing battle.  But, sometimes, just the greatest simplicity makes overwhelming sense, and although the mildest of dents in the cause, it can be rewarding when the result is mainly positive.
