Over the past few months, I had seen some references to 'Google Glass' on various websites and social media pages. The gist of the stories I heard was that this was going to be the next big thing in the world of technology. Still, I had no idea what it looked like, nor its practical usage.
Last week we had a contest on KICKS 105's Merrell in the Morning Show for the chance to win Carmike Cinema tickets to see the new Disney movie, 'Frozen'. The one stipulation was that the winners had to provide us reviews of the show, preferably from a kid's point of view.
Well, the critics have spoken, or written, and it looks like Disney has another blockbuster (surprised face).
When the holidays arrive, and actually well before that, you can always count on the Marine Reserves to help area kids with the Toys for Tots program. This year is no exception as Brian Crews and his volunteers have been relentless in making sure that collection boxes are located throughout Angelina and Trinity Counties.
Have you downloaded the QuizUp app yet? It's a modern day "Jeopardy-type" app that asks over 100,000 questions on hundreds of topics, and it has quickly become one of the most downloaded features on phones and tablets.

A few weeks ago, school districts across the state were required to send in their projected high school enrollment numbers for the next couple of years to the University Interscholastic League of Texas. These numbers were used to come up with the cut off numbers for conferences 6A down to 1A.

Today is one of the biggest travel days of the year, and state police are out in force making sure everyone is buckled up and not drinking and driving.
Be forewarned! Drive safely, don't let the other crazy drivers get to you, and get where you're going safely. And if you're going to get really festive and have a beverage or two because sometimes that makes dealing with relatives easier, have a designated driver!
Watching the movie starring Tom Hanks has become a holiday tradition for many of us, and it will no doubt appear on TV a few times this holiday season. And kids can experience a very real Polar Express right here in East Texas this weekend.
The Texas State Railroad will have the Polar Express running in Palestine, and kids can even wear their PJ's to really get into the spirit.
