Who Takes More Vacations, the Employee or the Boss?

It's vacation season and gas prices are low enough that the trip won't have to be cancelled because of that, so where are you headed? My family is going to Austin for a long weekend around the 4th of July, and then later in the summer we're going to see family in Nebraska. Exciting, I know.

If you have a job, chances are you look forward to time away from the job. Who takes the most vacations - us regular ole workers, or the bosses? Take a wild guess.

Gas Prices Plunging in the U.S, How Much is Gas in Lufkin and Nacogdoches?

Been to the gas station recently?  Prices are looking "swe - e - e - e - et"! While we may not ever see $2.50/gallon again, when compared to the overseas cost of petroleum, with the exception of oil rich regions abroad (including Puerto Rico?), the U.S. still reigns superior in less expensive fuel.  Check this out:

Railroad Crossings in East Texas Are Dangerous to Your Health

Now that the repaving has been completed on Timberland Drive, and in a speedy fashion I may add, is it asking too much to get crossing arms installed at the railroad tracks?  I mean the new paint looks great, but when you drive a Pinto there's no telling where the stall may occur.  Call me old fashioned, but a double yellow line painted in the center of the two lane highway is a false sense of security, since it does not stop a sleepy driver from crossing over it.

Lake Levels Are Up, More Boaters Hit the Water

By the end of the summer in 2011, the water levels were dangerously low at many Texas Lakes, and some were completely empty. Remember those images of Lake Travis near Austin? They had dry, cracked dirt where the water had existed before, and docks were left high and dry.

This year, much better!

Lake Sam Rayburn has seen steady traffic this weekend and more boaters are expected there today. I've also got friends headed to Lake Cypress Springs, a few hours north of here. If you're headed to the water for Memorial Day, keep this in mind.

Where are the Most Dangerous Intersections in Lufkin?

It's the beginning of a holiday weekend, YAY! And the beginning of people in your way on the road and aggressive drivers ticking you off. Who will present the biggest problem on the road today? It's those darn red light runners.

We've probably all had the experience of sitting at a red light that turns green, signaling our chance to go, and all of a sudden a car zooms through from the other direction. Near miss! Red light runners cause accidents all the time, and it turns out today is one of their favorite days to do it.

And what are the most dangerous intersections in Lufkin?

Holiday Weekend Means Texans Hit the Road

Triple A says more than 34 million Americans will drive more than 50 miles from home over the three day Memorial Day weekend. In Texas, that's 2.8 million people clogging up the roads. And your plans?

My family plans to skip the road trip and do something totally different....backyard camping! Many of my friends have been doing it lately with their kids and posting the pics on Facebook. I'm inspired to try it. Apparently all we have to do to have backyard fun is haul the sleeping bags outside and pitch a tent back there, and save the cost of admission to a park. It is pretty smart. You have your own private space with no wayward frisbees finding their way into your business, and all the conveniences like showers and toilets stay within just a few steps. AND, you don't have to lug that heavy cooler either, with frosty beverages in the fridge nearby.

If you do hit the road this weekend, know the police will be watching CLOSELY for wrong moves.

East Texas Roadways, Lumber Mills and Timber Trucks – A Deadly Combination if You’re Not Paying Close Attention

This story may not make the folks that drive 'lumber trucks', or that are in the 'timber business' very fond of me, but, as a safety precaution to all motorists, take notice when riding near a mill, or behind a bunch of freshly cut trees.
