Several Boating Accidents Reported Over the Holiday Weekend

My grandparents had a cabin on a lake in Nebraska, and as I was growing up some of the best memories came from spending Sunday afternoons there swimming, fishing, and learning to ski.

My grandparents lived there year round, but with everyone else flocking to the lake during the summer, my Grandpa would always say Memorial Day marked the beginning of "silly season" at the lake.  The lake was usually pretty quiet, but during the summer months the extra crowds, boaters, and campers changed all that.

Summer is busy for lakes, and it can also be dangerous.  Have you read about all of the boating accidents that happened around East Texas over Memorial Day weekend? One of the accidents involved a Game Warden.

31-Year Old Woman Accused Of Posing As a High School Student Had Wide Impact

The 31-year old woman posing as a high school sophomore in East Texas fooled many people besides just her classmates.

Charity Stevens (also known as Charity Johnson) was arrested a week ago for failing to provide identification to Longview Police.  It turns out, she had been posing as a student at New Life Christian School in Longview since last fall, and not even her friends or adoptive family knew she was sixteen years older than she said she was.  Click HERE for our original story.

And there's another business in East Texas that was kept in the dark by Stevens.

The Bees Are Coming

One spring day a few years back I walked out into my back yard and heard a buzzing sound loud enough to be a small saw, and I looked up into my arbor and noticed an enormous bee hive hanging down from the rafters.  I had never seen so many bees in my life!  Small ones, one on top of the other, all layered to form the hive.  I don't know how bees don't get claustrophobic living like that, but the bee keeper told me they're happy like that, crawling all over one another around the queen.

Carpenter bees are coming to East Texas, and if you're not already seeing them you will be soon.

Job Fair Is Coming Up Next Week

If you do a search for the "most productive day of the week," you'll get a lot of results that say "Tuesday."

Human resource managers say Tuesday is a productive day, and workers who have slept off the weekend effects by that day will say the same thing.  Our minds are on the weekend on Mondays and Fridays so those days are shot, but the middle of the week is good for concentrating apparently.

This coming Tuesday, May 13th, you might be so productive you find that dream job.
