Venturing outside these days makes it hard to breath. Even walking from the nice, cool office out to the car after work can make a girl sweat. And we don’t even want to talk about that temperature inside the car. Ouch! Those seats are sizzlin’.
We probably don’t have to tell you that a heat advisory is in effect for much of East Texas, including Angelina and Nacogdoches Counties, through 7pm Thursday. What does that mean exactly?
Kids get a bad wrap sometimes for being lazy and out of shape, but we know not all kids are lying on the couch, eating chips, and playing video games. We’ve seen lots of East Texas kids swimming this summer, playing baseball and softball, and even eating an occasional veggie.
To continue promoting healty habits, the Junior League of Lufkin is sponsoring Camp Get Fit/Kids at the First United Methodist Church Christian Life Center next week.
These athletes are serious! Check out the video for the recent wife-carrying contest, won for the 4th time by a couple from Finland.
It got me thinking, what if we organized a similar event in Lufkin? Husbands, are you strong enough to pile your wives on your shoulders and carry her over hurdles and through water without dumping her and without falling down?

A little scary? Then you learn it’s your dad, a marine, who has been away for an extended period on a military deployment. Surprise! Welcome home Dad. That emotional moment happened Friday night in Nacogdoches.
After reading more about the Boys and Girls Club of Deep East Texas, I wish I was a kid again! It sounds like they’re learning some valuable life skills — even how to change a flat tire. That means 9-year olds who hang out at the Boys and Girls Club this summer, will come in handier in a pinch than most adults.

The polls are open from 7am to 7pm today, so let your voice be heard. Voting is a good way to get out of the office and stretch your legs, and my political science teachers in high school and college always used to tell me it’s my civic duty to get out there and fill out a ballot. The candidates are waiting for us to decide their fate.
