It's that time of year when movie theaters and restaurants are deserted on Friday nights, because everyone flocks to high school football games. Football in Texas is king, and with the new season upon us, hopes are high that our teams are going to impress and win.

Kids Rake In Allowance Money

Kids have a pretty sweet situation with allowance money these days.

I think I scored $2 per week from my parents to start, and then later on I got an extra $1.50 or $2 for mowing certain sections of the yard. That's how I could afford those hot eleven dollar jeans!

The average allowance nowadays is just over $16 a week or $65 per month, according to the American Institute of CPA's. That comes out to about $780 each year.

The city says the name has meaning - Sango is the Yoruba god of lightning and thunder.

Thieves Love the Honda Accord

The Honda Accord seems to be one of the most common vehicles seen on the roads, not only across the US, but right here in East Texas. Driving on the Highway 59 we see tons of Accords, mixed in with several domestic pickup trucks and foreign and domestic SUVs. I’m rockin’ a Chevy Traverse, packed full of car seats, diaper bags, and scattered discarded Cheerios. And you?

If you drive a Tahoe, rest assured, it’s not likely to be stolen. But if you drive a foreign car, you’re chances of having it ripped off are pretty good. Yikes!

Outdoor Activity Brings West Nile Virus Warnings

Have you noticed a lot more warnings about the West Nile Virus this summer? I have.

And I have to admit, although I'm usually the family member that warns everyone else about recalls, potential scams, and severe weather potential, I haven't been all that concerned about West Nile. My spouse on the other hand, hoses down the kids with insect repellant every time we go outside, and wants to invest in the kind of insect spray that clips onto a belt loop and creates a vapor the constantly mists the bugs away. It's probably not a bad idea. I have seen the light.

The number of West Nile cases continues to climb in Texas, and Angelina County is no exception.

Are You Addicted to Your Smart Phone?

I read that 20 percent of us check our smart phones every ten minutes.

I hate to admit it, but I'm one of those helpless, pathetic addicts. I just can't stand not knowing what might be going on inside that phone as it sits there on my desk. Has someone sent a text? What new emails have just landed? Maybe I should check Facebook. Perhaps a celebrity couple has broken up....I should see. Stop the madness! But I can't.

If you're not checking your phone every ten minutes, a new Time Mobility Poll says you're probably checking it at least once an hour. And 84 percent can’t go one day with their mobile device at hand. What would we do with our hands if we didn't have our phones? I shudder to think.

Texas Boy Told He’s Too Big to Play Football

Six feet tall and 300 pounds sounds like a good size to play football. But apparently that's too big at age 12, and in that case league rules say the boy will have to stay on the sidelines.

Fox Sports Southwest did a story that many media outlets are covering, on the 12-year old boy from Mesquite, near Dallas, who was told after a weigh-in Sunday that he wouldn't be able to play.

Nearby City is in the Top 10 for Being Receptive to Bald Guys

Bruce Willis looks good bald. Can you even picture him with a full head of hair? Me neither. He might look goofy.

Other guys might look goofy with no hair. It all depends on the shape of the head I suppose, right? Having a head that's thin with good proportions seems to be of extreme importance when it comes to looking good bald.

One nearby Texas city is ranked in the Top 10 nationwide for it's acceptance of bald men. Women there love their bald guys!

The state is dotted with towns with names that stand out like, Nimrod, Bug Tussle, Uncertain, Zipperlandville, and Ding Dong.

Congratulations to the Lufkin Little League Team on a Great Season!

The Lufkin Little League All-Stars fell one win shy of a trip to Williamsport and the Little League World Series.

But overall, it was a magical season and the 11 and 12-year olds should be very proud, and will probably have some brand new popularity when they head back to school this fall.
