It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

Butt Dials to 911 are a Growing Problem

9-1-1 false alarms are nothing new. We’ve heard of kids dialing 9-1-1 when there’s no emergency, and we've heard about people calling emergency dispatchers for all the wrong reasons, liked burned hamburgers at fast food restaurants and things.

But have you ever been driving on Highway 59 or Highway 69 and accidently butt-dialed 9-1-1? In the age where everyone has a smart phone that’s always at the ready, accidental pocket-dials to emergency officials are a growing problem.

They’re out with those numbers again, about how much it costs to raise a child from age 0 to 17.

Texas is actually one of the cheapest places in the US to raise a child.

Singer’s Face Carved Into East Texas Corn Field

It can't be easy carving a face into a corn field. How in the world do they do that? Walking through the maze, you probably can't tell all the paths are making a face or that you're walking through an eyeball, but from the air it looks pretty cool.

In Canton, a farm has carved country singer Neal McCoy's face into a corn field to raise money for charity. Neal is originally from Jacksonville, so it's a way to honor a celebrity that East Texas has churned out, while raising money for East Texas kids too.
