Netflix Announces ‘Stranger Things’ Spinoff and Stage Play

The Duffer brothers have been adamant that Stranger Things will end after its upcoming fifth season.

That’s just not going to happen.

Texas Woman Makes Heartfelt Plea to “Red Light Runners” in Longview, TX

One woman in Longview, TX took to social media to make a heartfelt plea with drivers, and reading it is probably a good reminder for all of us.

Longview, TX Police Make Arrest In Shooting Death

If you watch the TV show "The First 48" the show begins by telling the viewer that when an homicide happens, police have a greater chance of solving their case if they can get a lead on the suspect within the first 48 hours after the crime occurs.

South African “Preacher” Going To Prison For Scamming Tyler-Area Church

One thing you gotta love about East Texas is that we are a community that's ready to give help to those in need when called upon. But of course, there are those few scumbags who see our kindness as a weakness to take advantage of us and use our giving to enrich themselves. Its nice to know that every once and a while when one of these folks get caught, justice belongs to the people.

Smith County And Two More East Texas Counties Issue Burn Bans

I have to say this and this is my OPINION, but the most powerful "government lobby" group in a few East Texas counties isn't the gun rights, pro-life/choice, big business, special interest groups.

A YouTube Channel is Still Mad Because We Critiqued Their Video About Tyler, Texas

In May of 2021, a YouTube channel called Southern Life came through Tyler and filmed a very confusing and very misinformed video about the city. The video was full of nonsense conjecture, yawning and just flat out wrong information. This from a channel that claimed at one time to help people move to the south. This channel decided to come back to Tyler in March of this year and once again spouted a bunch of nonsense and misinformation.

We can have the worst day at work or stressed out about people in our life and these animals just want to show us that they care and are excited to see us. Which is why I love to write about animals that are looking for their forever homes like these cats that are up for adoption in Longview, Texas.

This Austin, TX Comedian Goes Viral With Her Hilarious Tik Tok About Texas Heat

It's hot as _______ in Texas this summer. You can fill in the blank with the word you think is appropriate.
