Halloween is not far off, and October will be a great time to discover some new "haunts." One haunted spot not far from Lufkin is in a section of a former nursing home. Another haunted space is on the SFA campus. And apparently, a ghost named Chester hangs out at one building …
When it comes to the best cities in Texas to raise a family, Lufkin and Nacogdoches both scored in the bottom 10 percent. At least, that's according to a study commissioned by WalletHub, but, I take this all in with a major grain of salt.
