It’s About to Get Cold in Tyler

Today will be a warm day, but don’t expect it to last.

If you’re the type that crawls out of bed in the morning and walks out to the driveway to pick up the newspaper in your pj’s, you’ll get a blast of cold air on Friday morning. You might want to grab a blankey!

A few cool fronts have passed through East Texas this fall, but this Canadian front that’s on its way today will be the strongest yet. How cold will it get?

It’s Been a Mad Rush to Register to Vote

Thousands of people in Smith County have registered to vote since the July primary. About 4,300 in fact.

Tuesday was the last day to register to vote ahead of the November 6th election, so the window has closed. But voter registration drives around Tyler over the past few months, and a big voter-registration push by both parties has led to an increase in the number of people who signed up to vote.

Smith County Reissuing Some Mail In Ballots

After the organization "Buy Local First" gathered signatures for months to get the measure to allow the sale of beer and wine for off premises consumption in the City of Tyler and Smith County JP Precinct 2 to appear on the November 6th ballot, it passed and will be voted on in the coming election.

Do You Have Firefighter Skills? Test Them in Tyler Next Week

Brookshire's Firefighter Combat Challenge is coming up Oct. 12 to 13 in Tyler, and it will give us a chance to see how we measure up to those beefy firefighting guys. We know there are plenty of in-shape gals that keep us safe from fires too and we appreciate it. They get a workout!

I know for one, I am not good at carrying a heavy fire hose any distance. I get mad when the garden hose gets a kink and won't untangle. Think you can beat the best?

Halloween is Scary — Oh, That’s the Point!

My spouse and I have been together for 14 years, and at points along the way I've mentioned not being particularly fond of the scary parts of Halloween. So by now it should be known right?

I like the cute parts of Halloween! Like the cute, cuddlely kid costumes and the nice, harmless pumpkins.

It was a big mistake letting the spouse take the kids shopping for Halloween decorations.

TJC to Host Alumni Reunion

Okay, admit it. If it weren't for Facebook, you would have lost touch with just about everyone you went to college with. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for making sure we don't lose touch, and for giving us the chance to continue to "Like" each other.

Social media keeps us all together on a daily basis, but Tyler Junior College Alumni will actually have the chance the shake hands and high five, and have some real live, face-to-face interaction Tuesday.
