With Veterans Day Sunday, Events Held Through the Weekend

Perhaps your neighbors have flags flying on the front of their house right now. Mine do. I've noticed the flags flying at some East Texas businesses that don't normally have them out too.

With Veterans Day on Sunday several events are being held today at area high schools, including programs at Kilgore ISD, Hallsville ISD, Pine Tree ISD, and Spring Hill ISD. Schools are having programs, and in some cases incorporating the ceremonies into high school football games tonight. What else is happening?

Holiday Market Starts Thursday in Tyler

Stats say that at this point in November, about half of us have already begun our holiday shopping. Somewhere in the house we have a box of gifts already stashed away, and many of us started picking up the gifts even before Halloween to stay ahead of the game. Call us crazy, but we consider ourselves geniuses cuz we're not hit with the Christmas bills all at once. It's just effective planning!

There's a great opportunity beginning today in Tyler to do a little holiday shopping at the Holiday Market. It is the largest fundraiser for Junior League of Tyler, the community-service organization of women. You'll be able to find lots of great gifts to stash away, and some things for yourself too.

Was Jerry Jones Locked Out of the Cowboys Locker Room?

Wives sometimes complain that husbands sink into a terrible funk after a Dallas Cowboys loss. They don't talk much, they're grumpy, they snap and get sassy when asked a simple question.... Goodness. The Cowboys lose and it can take a family a day or two to get back to normal. May be a week, until the 'Boys can get on the field and win again.

Did you hear Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was locked out of the locker room after the loss in Atlanta Sunday night? The word is he didn't take the loss well. He was seen banging on the door, but he couldn't get in. Oh dear. Would you have the nerve to lock out the boss?

And looking ahead, there are turkeys and trimmings, pumpkin pies, and Christmas candies, and big steaming mugs of hot chocolate with whipped cream in our future. And perhaps a few festive adult beverages too. Tis the season.

Dallas Mavericks Kick off Season Tonight

The season opener tonight for the Dallas Mavericks may not look like a typical season opener for the Mavs. Cuz there's no Dirk! When we think of the Mavs we think of Dirk Nowitzki. But he's still recovering from knee surgery and won't play tonight as the Mavs take on the Lakers in Los Angeles.

Here’s How East Texans Can Help Those Affected By Hurricane Sandy

The weather in Tyler is just fine, so it's hard to imagine exactly how bad it is right now on the East Coast as Hurricane Sandy makes her way into New York and New Jersey. There are blizzard warnings in places like West Virginia, because Sandy is mixing with a winter storm there, and meteorologists say that's the first time in history a storm like that has been created - hurricane meets winter storm. And we look out the window and see nothing of the sort. Wanna help those who need it?

The American Red Cross says there are blood drives up and down the Eastern Seaboard that are being cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy, and they're advising those of us in areas that are unaffected by the hurricane to donate if we're able.
