A young University of North Texas student, Sara Mutschlechner, was killed on New Years morning when a yet to be identified gunman shot her in the head after she tried to drive away from an altercation. Thousands of students rallied together on campus this weekend in Denton, Texas to pay their respects to her memory.

First Baby Of The New Year, Again


Like in years past, newspapers and television stations around the Lone Star State are reporting about the first babies born for the year. While these human interest stories are fun, most folks quickly forget about them. All except for the one in Wichita Falls, Texas. There 33-year-old Renee Harnden gave birth to the cities first baby in 2016, but that was not her first time to do so. In 2000, she gave birth to the first baby that year as well.

The New Baby

What are the odds that the same woman would give birth to the first baby of the year in the same city 16-years later? While the new mom was busy nursing her new baby, the older sister was busy celebrating her sweet sixteen birthday. There are some pretty strange things that happen in the State of Texas, but this seems even more unusual than most others.

Women Love This Man


Over my lifetime, I have only met a handful of women who do not like George Strait. And unlike other nice looking guys who only appeal to females, men love his slow talking style and traditional country music voice as well. Back in the early 1980's I made my living as a country music radio announcer first in Amarillo and then in Waco. The first time I attended a George Strait concert it became crystal clear to me that young women loved him, because many of them started crying when he went into that talking part of 'You Look So Good In Love.'

Even today, George Strait is considered one of the biggest stars in country music even though he does not tour that much anymore. Country radio still plays his music. And unlike many other big stars of the 1980's and 1990's his radio success does not appear to be slowing down at all. I believe George owes much of his success in the country music business to not only how he has managed his career, but his personal life gives fans something positive to strive for as well.
