Children’s Consignment Sale Going on in Tyler

The Children's Consignment Sale returns to Harvey Convention Center in Tyler Thursday, Friday and Saturday and it brings a load of savings to East Texas families.  When you have kids you realize how quickly they outgrow their clothes and their toys can be the same way too.  The Children's Consignment Sale can be pictured in your mind as a gigantic resale shop or garage sale of types filled with everything you need for your kids - from infants to teens.

Best Boss Ever Gives Employees Huge Bonus After Retiring

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

When Howard Cooper sold his Ann Arbor, Michigan car dealership earlier this year he made sure employee retention was part of the deal.

In these tough economic times, that alone would make him a hero to Howard Cooper Import Center's 89 workers. But the 83-year-old took things to a whole other level of generosity last week.

How Many People Skip Out on Washing Their Hands?

Do you wash your hands EVERY time you use a public restroom?

Perhaps you wash your hands religiously after using the restroom at a store or restaurant, but not so much at work. Who cares, you know all those people in the office and they’re like family, right? You can let the hand-washing slide there. Ew! Family members and those donut-eating co-workers have germs too.

Allowances for Kids Keep Going Up

Kids have a pretty sweet situation with allowance money these days.

I think I scored $2 per week from my parents to start, and then later on I got an extra $1.50 or $2 for mowing certain sections of the yard. That’s how I could afford those hot eleven dollar jeans!

The average allowance nowadays is just over $16 a week or $65 per month, according to the American Institute of CPA’s. That comes out to about $780 each year.

Honda Accord is the Most Stolen Vehicle

The Honda Accord seems to be one of the most common vehicles seen on the roads, not only across the US, but right here in East Texas. Driving on the Loop in Tyler we see tons of Accords, mixed in with several domestic pickup trucks and foreign and domestic SUVs. I'm rockin' a Chevy Traverse, packed full of car seats, diaper bags, and scattered discarded Cheerios. And you?

If you drive a Tahoe, rest assured, it's not likely to be stolen. But if you drive a foreign car, you're chances of having it ripped off are pretty good. Yikes!

How Often Do You Check Your Phone?

I read that 20 percent of us check our smart phones every ten minutes.

I hate to admit it, but I’m one of those helpless, pathetic addicts. I just can’t stand not knowing what might be going on inside that phone as it sits there on my desk. Has someone sent a text? What new emails have just landed? Maybe I should check Facebook. Perhaps a celebrity couple has broken up….I should see. Stop the madness! But I can’t.

If you’re not checking your phone every ten minutes, a new Time Mobility Poll says you’re probably checking it at least once an hour. And 84 percent can’t go one day with their mobile device at hand. What would we do with our hands if we didn’t have our phones? I shudder to think.

Texas 12-Year Old Banned From Playing Football

Six feet tall and 300 pounds sounds like a good size to play football. But apparently that’s too big at age 12, and in that case league rules say the boy will have to stay on the sidelines.

Fox Sports Southwest did a story that many media outlets are covering, on the 12-year old boy from Mesquite, near Dallas, who was told after a weigh-in Sunday that he wouldn’t be able to play.
