The Vietnam Memorial is Headed to East Texas

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial that graces Washington DC is large, and a replica half that size travels the country to give those wishing to pay respects close to home the chance to do that.

The replica is coming to Rusk County this Friday, and will be on public display from Friday morning until noon Monday at Rader Funeral Home, 800 Kilgore Drive in Henderson.

Research Says Our ’5 Second Rule’ is Off

My co-workers here at the radio station are pretty good at obeying that unwritten "Five Second Rule."

You know, when you drop something on the floor, you have five seconds to pick it up and pop it in your mouth. After five seconds, apparently it becomes too dirty and germy for consumption.

Did you know this applies to countertops as well as the floor? Researchers say countertops, where we prepare food, are actually more germ-ridden than that dirty, icky floor. Oh dear, we're in big trouble.

Local Firefighters Take a Break to Fight Breast Cancer With ‘Bras for the Cause’

We're used to seeing firefighters in dangerous settings where their lives, and perhaps ours, are on the line. There are shooting flames, and smoke, and fire trucks and hoses.

But bras?

Last night in Tyler, local firefighters took a break from the front lines to get in touch with their feminine side and raise money and awareness for breast cancer at a Bras for the Cause event, with the Women's Council of Realtors.

What’s the Best Way to Trick-or-Treat in Texas?

Have you planned your Trick-or-Treating attack yet?

Most families seem to take the kids in costume to houses in their own neighborhoods, but others have been known to drive well out of their way just to hunt down the best candy. Once the word starts to spread that a neighborhood passes out full-size Snickers, that's where the mini-vans head!

So where are the best spots to Trick-or-Treat? Strangely enough, everywhere BUT Texas. Isn't everything supposed to be bigger here? Apparently the Halloween candy is not.

East Texas School Adds Outdoor Classroom

How many times have you looked out the window on a beautiful day and wanted to escape work or school to go outside and play?

It may not be all about play for students at one Texas school, but at least they'll get to spend some time outside in the gorgeous fall weather, in their new outdoor classroom. They just launched a new butterfly garden too.

911 Butt Dials Are a Growing Problem

9-1-1 false alarms are nothing new. We've heard of kids dialing 9-1-1 when there's no emergency, and Kidd Kraddick has shared some gems with us in the past about people calling emegency dispatchers for all the wrong reasons.

But have you ever been driving on the The Loop in Tyler and accidently butt-dialed 9-1-1? In the age where everyone has a smart phone that's always at the ready, accidental pocket-dials to emergency officials are a growing problem.

Oprah Brings Back “Favorite Things”

Each year around Thanksgiving on her talk show, Oprah passed out gift after gift on the "Favorite Things" episode and sent the audience into a complete frenzy. For us at home, it was an opportunity to get some great gift ideas, and perhaps to be completely jealous of those lucky audience members who would need a mid-sized truck to haul all of their new loot home.

Well guess what! Oprah may not have the talk show anymore, but she does have a network, and she's bringing back the Favorite Things show. And we have a chance to win without leaving the house.

Holiday Shopping Season is Officially Here

I think I saw the first big, full-blown display of Christmas trees and snow globes and dancing elves in a store around September 15th. That's pure madness! But after I stopped fighting it in my head, I let my excited 4-year old drag me into that section of the store and we both picked up a snow globe and shook it

Has Breast Cancer Awareness Month Gotten Your Attention?

Kellie Pickler got our attention earlier this month when she shaved her head to support a friend who was going through chemo therapy.

Countless celebrities this month have been sporting the pink ribbons to raise breast cancer awareness, and some of them have even been talking about their own battles with breast cancer, including Melissa Etheridge and Wanda Sykes.
