New Abbott Executive Order on Covid

Governor Greg Abbott issued a new Executive Order which will prevent local officials’ ability to limit capacity at businesses or to require vaccines or face masks. The Governor said they combined several existing Covid-19 executive orders to promote statewide uniformity. The new order overrides previous orders, so local officials can’t restrict business capacity, even if hospitalization rates are over 15%.

WACO, Texas — Waco has a new food truck moving around the city but this one is completely run by students. “I’m really interested in this because I also want to have a business,” Rapaport Academy Sophomore Shelly Montes said. “But I want to help out my family and I also have a big plan to help out the community with what I earn and what we do with my family because we like helping people.”

Donuts Make The World A Better Place. Who Has The Best In West Texas?

One of the things I loved seeing when I moved here last year was the abundance of donut shops. I'm not usually one who takes the time to eat breakfast during the week, and if I do-it's usually a quick run thru a drive thru if there's time or if I'm not at work on the morning show. Coming from Illinois-I'm used to there being a Dunkin Donuts on every other corner similar to how there's a Starbucks or McDonald's never too far away. But the only Dunkin I've seen here isn't even a full-fledged store; it's a kiosk inside a truck stop/gas station on 1788 and 191 in Midland. That's a new one for me as you can't even get the full menu in this situation--let alone the Dunkin stores that were all combined with Baskin Robbins so you could get a tasty donut from the Dunkin side, and a Cappuccino Blast from the Basin side.
