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?

Batman Triple Show in Lufkin is a Must-See Tonight! [VIDEO]

In anticipation of the new Batman movie coming out this Friday night, we rented “Batman Begins” on demand from Suddenlink tonight.  Got about 10 min in and “the daughter” (she had never seen it) had to go take a shower, so I am waiting and I thought I would let you know about something cool going on at Carmike Cinemas this Thursday night.

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.

Construction Coming to Interstate 69

Changes are coming to Interstate 69. Of course, there will be construction headaches to put up with before traffic starts getting happy with the improvements, but if we can hang in there through that, the result should make travel easier around Lufkin, Nacogdoches, and Diboll.

‘East Texas Cricket Invasion 2012′ – Now Playing At a Residence or Business Near You! [VIDEO]

Nothing spoils a night sitting on the porch staring at a full moon like an insect infestation.  Where I live - got 'em all - Spiders, Ants, Roaches, and Crickets!  The Crickets outnumber the other bugs about three-to-one.

A person that specializes in the knowledge of insects has an unpronounceable title that begins with the letter "E" and ends with "ologist".  You can either SOLVE THE PUZZLE (Wheel of Fortune), or make an appointment with your optometrist.  If you can read the first three lines of the eye chart, you'll have the official sounding name of a person that gravitates toward something that most of us would simply like to never come in contact with.

The fireworks stands have suddenly popped up everywhere across Angelina County and all of East Texas. It's the law that fireworks can only be sold between June 24 and July 4th, so that draws a crowd of stands in a short time. Now is the time to buy.

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:

Lufkin Celebrates ‘Flag Day’ Thursday, June 14

Why Flag Day is not an official federal holiday like Independence Day is beyond me, but you should know that June 14 is "Flag Day", commemorating the adoption of the U.S. Flag by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

President Woodrow Wilson, back in 1916, was the first to sign a proclamation establishing "Flag Day", and Congress agreed to back the cause in 1949.
