Lufkin Jones Pool is Open Again

Guess what....it's going to be hot this weekend!  This time of year we don't really need a weather forecast do we?  It gets to at least the mid 90's every day and feels like 105 and that's about all we need to know.  That's the forecast we'll have again this weekend.

Time to hit the lake!  Go fishing, swimming, and boating with Dad on Father's Day weekend.

A Lufkin pool that had been shuttered for two years is open again too.  In fact, it had it's grand re-opening yesterday.

East Texans Honor Veterans This Memorial Day

Memorial Day is usually a day to relax at the lake, fire up the grill, or take in a baseball game.

But it's more than a day off.  While we're enjoying the festivities, it's important to remember why we're not at work.  To take time to honor military veterans!

Lufkin Gets a NICU

Chances are, you know someone who has benefited from the NICU - that's Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit.

I have two friends in Dallas who gave birth to baby boys that needed a little extra help getting started in life.  One spent a month in the NICU, and one spent nine days there.  Both are doing just fine now!  One is 7 now and the other just turned 2.  They started out their lives hooked up to tubes and on respirators, and they're just as happy and healthy as every other kid now.
