They Did It! Hudson Girls Are State Champs!

If you've played sports or are a sports fan, you know the underdog always possesses one unique trait: confidence! If you believe you can win, you can win.

To win the state championship hardware, the Hudson Lady Hornets had to get by the number one seed in the tournament, and they did that Saturday in Austin.

Hudson One Win Away from State Championship

There are only two teams left in Class 3A Softball, and Hudson is one of them.

After a 5 to 2 semi-final win over West High School yesterday in Austin, the Hudson Lady Hornets play for the state championship tomorrow.

With a day off in Austin I'd have the urge to hit about five mexican restaurants for queso and burritos, but something tells me the Hudson team will avoid that. Rest up today and drink those protein shakes ladies!

Is the Facebook Founder a Good Tipper?

I have to say I’m not very good at math, and I have no interest in trying to figure out what a twenty percent tip is on a $46.56 bill. I always make my spouse do the arithmetic. And you?

Whether we’re dining at Logan's Roadhouse, the Outback Steakhouse, or Cotton Patch, we usually try to be generous with our tips. We know you guys and gals work hard for the money. And besides, we feel like we need to apologize for the discarded french fries and crayons and kids menus on the floor, tossed by our three kids. A good tip is a great way to say, “I’m sorry you had to put up with this uncontrollable family.”

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire and can afford big tips. Is he generous?

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. Voting is a good way to get out of the office and stretch your legs, and my political science teachers in high school and college always used to tell me it's my civic duty to get out there and fill out a ballot. The candidates are waiting for us to decide their fate.

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.

Golfers Get Ready to “Tee it up for Teachers”

Golf goes something like this: slice, bad shot, terrible shot, decent chip, missed putt but a little closer to the hole, and then finally that dang ball finds its way and sinks into the hole. It doesn't usually happen exactly like that for Tiger Woods, but for many east Texas weekend golfers (myself included) we hack our way down the fairway and after the ball has had enough, it finally goes in.

We keep playing not because we're awesome, but because it's fun, and because every once in awhile we hit that one great shot. How did we do that again?

Regardless of our golf ability, we're all invited to play on June 11 at Crown Colony Country Club. It's for a great cause.

Texas Fans To See Few Remaining Van Halen Shows

The June 20 show at the American Airlines Center in Dallas will be one of the last shows for Van Halen this year. See them while you can!

Fans can also catch them June 22 in San Antonio and June 24 in Houston, but as you've probably heard, everything after June 26 has been cancelled. Shows in Cleveland, El Paso, Detroit, and other spots have been ditched.

So what's the deal?

Parts of East Texas to Get Partial Views of Solar Eclipse

An eclipse like this only happens once every twenty years, and it will be viewable in Texas Sunday; partially anyway.

A solar eclipse is when the moon blocks out the sun for a time, and leaves a ring of fire around its circumference. The sky gets a little spooky-looking for a bit and then the moon and sun part like a good Dancing with the Stars release move, and life goes back to normal.

Spots like Reno, NV and Albuquerque, NM will have the most spectacular views of the complete eclipse, but the entire path of the eclipse stretches from China to Texas. Plenty of folks will have the opportunity to see the rare show of nature.
