It’s spring break, and like just about every other year, the Kilgore High School soccer programs both took the week off. The rest of District 16-4A is probably thankful for the break. Kilgore’s Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs are a combined 15-1 in district play this season, both looking to again successfully defend their district championships from 2018. The latest victories came at Waskom, with the Lady ‘Dogs bringing home a 9-0 win, and coach Tom Wait’s Bulldogs getting another shutout, 6-0. more
Storms damaged Kilgore early Thursday morning, and on the lighter side, put a small dent in the Kilgore High School softball season, as well. The Lady Bulldogs had been scheduled to visit Mabank for a game Thursday afternoon, but Mabank called off the game, KHS coach Cheyenne Kirkpatrick said. It was a non-district game, one of the final ones before the District 16-4A schedule begins Tuesday. Kilgore (11-4) was to host Center on Friday, and will be home Tuesday versus Spring Hill. That’s also SAFFE Day recognition night. more
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – There are exceptions to every rule and, with regard to Steve Torrence’s domination of the NHRA’s Mello Yello drag racing series, that exception is Gainesville Raceway, site this week of the 50th Amalie Oil Gatornationals. While Torrence’s fingerprints are all over virtually every other event in drag racing’s primary series, one would be hard pressed to find evidence he ever has raced in Florida. more
Listening to U2’s 2009 song “Magnificent”, I am repeatedly struck by the following lyric: “From the womb my first cry, it was a joyful noise.” Although the authors apparently did not intend it, I think of God’s creating each human life, ultimately for the purpose of making a joyful noise praising Him (Genesis 4:1 and Psalm 95:1,2; 98:4,6; 100:1). more
AS the storms raged through East Texas in the wee hours of the morning on Thursday, first responders were hitting the ground running before the winds completely died down. The calls began at 3 a.m. for some – calls of damage, road closures needed and yes, fear of what just occurred in a large residential area of Kilgore. more
As many of you know, She Who Generally Knows Best and I “downsized” some months ago – maybe 10 months – in anticipation of either a retirement or a slowdown. And, as many of you know and the rest will likely learn sooner or later, downsizing means you box up a lot of stuff that somehow or other had fallen off the official inventory list. For example, somebody once gave me a five-inch-tall porcelain figurine… it’s a cap-wearing bear, upright and with a knapsack on its back, climbing a tiny-but-imposing mountain. On the backside of the diminutive mountain is one of those You-Can-Do-It inspirational messages. No mountain too high, etc, etc... more

This money could help you achieve some of your important financial goals – so you’ll want to think carefully about your choices. Of course, everyone’s needs are different, so there’s no one “right” way to handle a large lump sum. But here are a few suggestions that may be useful: more
DEAR DR. ROACH: I am turning 68 years old tomorrow. For the past couple of months, my ear canals have been very itchy. Also, my wife was constantly cleaning earwax out of my ears. Now for some reason I no longer produce earwax, but my ears itch a lot. Do you have any idea what may be causing this? How do I stop the itching? I have tried olive oil. It seems to work but not really that well. A doctor looked in my ear and said the ear canals look fine. – R.K. more
ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You could be more difficult or moodier than you think. Others steer clear and avoid arguments with you. They sense your quirkiness or unpredictability. Their actions could prevent a hassle. Tonight: Letting off steam. more
