Happy Birthday Lufkin!

May I have your attention please.  Someone was asleep at the switch yesterday, and because of this, you were not given the opportunity to "Party like it's 1985" (the "Prince" song?).

I and I alone, shall burden the entire blame for this miscarriage of journalism, and do hope my staggering incompetence can be excused.

Lufkin Woman Participates in Miss Texas USA Pageant This Weekend

20-year old Annabel Rivera is a 2010 graduate of Lufkin High School, who hasn't exactly been taking it easy after high school. She's been attending SFA and pursuing fame and fortune in beauty pageants. She'll compete along with 113 other Texas woman this weekend in the Miss Texas USA Pageant in Houston.

It hasn't been an easy road for Rivera, who became fascinated with pageants after watching them on TV. Once she went through the application process and became accepted, she still needed to raise the money for the registration fee and that wasn't easy.

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.

East Texas Health Fair Tuesday is August 7th in Lufkin

Better safe than sorry considering universal health care does not become effective until 2014, and for those without insurance, getting ahead of the curve may be just what the doctor ordered.

Top US Small Towns Named

There's something inherently cool about a small town. The people are nice (although they all know each other and can be in everyone's business), there's no traffic, and the stress level can be lower. I'm headed to my one-stoplight hometown in Nebraska for a little family bonding time next week and we're planning to sit on the deck and stare at the trees, and ask the local farmers for permission to walk into their fields and pick corn. Why vacation in a tropical location when you can have that kind of fun? Small towns rock.

Rand McNally and USA Today named the best small towns in all of America this week. Did Lufkin and Nacogdoches make the list?

Natural Gas Rates May Increase in Lufkin, Nacogdoches and Surrounding Areas

This affects all of us.  Last night the City of Lufkin considered a 90 day moratorium of CenterPoint Energy's natural gas hike request.

It has always struck me with bewilderment that utility companies are on the front line of rate hikes at a seemingly alarming rate.  According to the latest figures, residential customers would see an average increase of around 11.8%.

Sign Says ‘Photo Enforced’ at Lufkin Intersections, But Are They Really?

Okay, so you blew through a yellow/red at the intersection of Chestnut and Timberland at 1 in the morning, forgetting all about it until that "notice of violation" showed up in the mail.  All of a sudden that hazy moment of should I or should I not have entered the intersection become a blow to your wallet.

Let me forewarn you, that if you plan on disputing the charge, be prepared to view an 8 x 11 glossy of your alleged violation.  Why do I say alleged?

Staycation? Here Are Some Ideas Around Lufkin and Nacogdoches

Sure it's great to jet off to an exotic location in the summertime and sit by a resort swimming pool and sip beverages with umbrellas in them. But since Hawaii is not on everyone's agenda or in all of our budgets, we've come up with some other ideas to have fun closer to home, and maybe discover some cool places in East Texas that you didn't know existed.
