Coming of age in the ‘70s I wore out many an 8-track tape in my GTO. It’s hard to remember which was louder, the music coming out of the speakers or the rumble from the burned out glass-packs. Either way, that was not a good vehicle to use when trying to sneak into the drive-in movie theatre through the back gate … But I digress. These days I love living in the Texoma area, writing and voicing Radio commercials, and taking pictures with my Nikon. By the way, if you see someone jumping for joy at the vintage LP he just discovered in one of the local resale shops, that’s probably me.

30th Annual Hotter N Hell Hundred Schedule Changes – What You Need To Know

It's almost here! The 30th Annual Hotter N Hell Hundred weekend is just around the corner.

Because of the exceptionally toasty summer we've had, the steering committee has looked at the way things have been done in the past and made a few changes. The most notable of which is an earlier start time. This will not only help the riders get some miles behind them before the heat of the day, but it may also affect how non-riders in town schedule their Saturday morning drives.

The Four Stages Of Drought Management – Do You Know What They Are?

It looks like the summer of 2011 might just be one for the books. And while it's always exciting to set new records, there are downsides, too. Things like water usage restrictions due to drought management programs.

As I write this, we're still in the "Normal" status according to the City of Wichita Falls. Even so, it's time to seriously consider your water usage.

Long, hot, dry summers are no stranger to Wichita Falls, and four stages of drought management plans are in place to deal with the situation as it develops from year to year. By the time this summer is over we'll probably be well acquainted with several of them.

The 30th Annual Hotter N Hell Hundred is getting closer every day and this year's ride promises to be one of the best attended events in its history. Bicycles, and their riders, from all 50 states and several countries will be making their way to Wichita Falls, and they'll all need places to stay. Many of the local hotels and motels are already booked up for the weekend so the Hotter N Hell Hundred steering committee is looking for some friendly Wichita Falls ambassadors to open their doors and show a little Texas hospitality.

Mystery Marks On Wichita Falls Streets – What Are They?

I love a mystery, and we've got a doozy in Wichita Falls right now.

You may have noticed some mysterious dark streaks on one side of some of the roads in town lately. Have you wondered what's causing them? They seem to appear from nowhere, yet they go on for miles. But almost always only going one direction on the streets you find them on.

One possible explanation is an ultra top secret military exercise. Something along the lines of chemtrails following jet aircraft but ... dare I say ... more ... down to earth?

Area 51 DOES Exist – Spy Plane Pictures

Area 51. It's one of those mysterious sites in the Nevada desert that everyone talks about, but no one will "officially" talk about. A lonely military base protected with the latest in security measures. Yet, officially, it doesn't exist.

That's what they wanted us to think! But now, the truth is out!
