East Texas Home Flaps Flag, But it’s Not “Red, White, and Blue”

I was driving on a Lufkin street yesterday, inside a neighborhood community that's eluded me since moving here - in other words, I got lost.

Anyway, during this scenic getaway, and while cruisin' at speeds which would have made my granddaddy Mick St. Nick feel proud, I slowed the Pinto to a crawl so as to admire a flag waving in the soft breeze.

Ted Nugent Says President Obama Represents ‘Everything Bad About Humanity’

University of Texas ‘Fracking’ Assessment, Not Independent After-All?

Holy Cow Batman!

These days it is commonplace to review every document known to civilization regarding any report, journal, manuscript, article, finding, etc...

Believing in its content on face value because the author is considered a topical expert is why MSNBC gives us "American Greed and Scams" six times on Sunday.

About 30 years ago in the building of another radio station, one my colleagues asked  for my opinion on then prez Jimmy Carter.  Knowing absolutely nothing about politics, I could hear my "Poli-Sci" teacher saying "...never discuss religion or politics at work".

Today, I know even fewer politics, that is to say, not qualified for any legiti or non-legitimate discussion.  Nevertheless, if you are a registered Lonestar state voter, you could possibly have a viewpoint regarding the VOTER ID Law,  which is currently under fire.

Governor Rick Perry in East Texas for the 4th

Before heading back to Lufkin to observe the fireworks extravaganza at Ellen Trout Zoo, I took a side trip to Big Sandy.  Located at the crossroads of U.S. Highway 80 and Texas State Highway 155, the city isn't all that "Big", but on Independence Day, it became larger than life itself.

Voters Head to the Polls for Texas Primary

Have you voted yet? Election officials in Angelina County say more than 5600 people voted early, in the two weeks prior to today's primary.

The race for Angelina County Sheriff is one to watch. On the Republican side voters will choose between Allen Hill and Greg Sanches. Jim Hodges runs unopposed as a Democrat for Sheriff.

The polls are open from 7am to 7pm today, so let your voice be heard.

The candidates are waiting for us to decide their fate.
