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.

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.

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.

Lufkin High School Students Get Big Scholarship Money

Graduating seniors at Lufkin High School received $114,000 in scholarships from the Alumni Association Monday night at a ceremony at Tom Jack Lucas Auditorium. Big bucks! The LHS Alumni Association said that's the highest dollar amount ever for them.

Contributions by other donors topped $3.1 million, and added up to hundreds of scholarships for 180 students. All that studying DID pay off. I know I thought all the hard work might never end, and then suddenly it did and then I wondered where all the time had gone. Scholarships are a nice way to ease the transition to college. They're a pat on the back, and provide a financial boost in the fall.

We've highlighted some of the local winners here:
