It seems like school just ended, but now we're just a few weeks away from the fall semester.

I have a 5-year old that will start kindergarten on August 26th, and we're planning to do lots of shopping for school supplies and new clothes in August.  It's exciting in some ways to start school, but it's expensive!

School supply lists in Lufkin can run about $50, and in some surrounding cities the totals for notebooks, pencils, glue, and all of the other necessities can push closer to $100.  That's not the new Hello Kitty shirts and fancy tennis shoes.  That total only includes the classroom supplies.

KTRE says the boutique saw positive growth and change was happening in downtown Lufkin and wanted to move in and take advantage.  Another retailer inside the Angelina Hotel opened in March.  Mama Tried was previously located on First Street in the downtown area, and moved over to the Angelina Hotel.  And a children's boutique opened up at the Angelina Hotel last November.

Mosquitoes Love You More After You’ve Had a Few

As much as one 12-ounce bottle of beer can make you more attractive...to mosquitoes.

Myspace used to be a favorite choice for social media goers, and then Facebook came along and sort of squashed it.  Some stayed with Myspace - in fact it's always been a great place for bands and musicians to connect with fans - but many jumped ship for other sites.
