So, I know I’m a few days late on this, but it’s really bothering me. Last Friday, Nik Wallenda, successfully became the first person ever to cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope. Now here’s the deal – I admit he’s talented, crazy, lucky – however you want to describe him, but why all the fuss? Why were hundreds of thousands of people glued to their TV’s on Friday night to see him do this? Were people hoping cheer him on as he defied the odds and avoids a tragic accident where he falls to his death?

I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I look forward to this event every year. It seems like I always have some trash and bulky items laying around my garage or storage building that are too big to go out for the normal trash pick-up. That’s exactly what the annual Smith County Wide Cleanup event is all about. During this time, Smith County residents can bring trash and bulky items to the Greenwood Farms Landfill and dump it off for free!
The City of Longview has a career fair planed for today (June 13) from 4pm-7pm at Maude Cobb Convention Center.

The various city departments will have information about their current job openings as well as information about all other positions within the City.
This weekend the 6th Annual “Midnight Madness” Fast Pitch Softball Tournament is happening in Longview. I’ve never seen any of the games from previous years, but I think it’s a cool idea.

Tonight’s games should end around 3 a.m. and then pick back up Saturday at 5 p.m. and continue with the finals slated to begin around midnight.
The FCC and FEMA have been working on a system to notify the general public of imminent threats to life or property in your area. This system is ready to go now and you will begin to receive the messages on your cell phone as early as this month. The message is called a WEA, or Wireless Emergency Alert. Tornado warnings, flash flood warnings and several other high-end warnings will go direct to wireless users in an affected county automatically if their device is compatible.
