  • The Devils River is one of the premier paddling and fishing destinations in Texas, drawing outdoor enthusiasts each year to enjoy the preserved natural beauty, excellent sport fishery, and native wildlife along its clear waters. But the river is not for the faint of heart.
  • I watch in amazement the singers like Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, or Dolly Parton, when they're holding the long notes and their larynxes tremor with vibrato. It’s not the dangle-like-a-punching-bag epiglottis that gets my attention. It’s the TV camera close-up of their bottom teeth. They’re white! I figure they’ve either had dental implants or they’ve replaced their silver fillings with caulk.
  • Lads, lassies and leprechauns will enjoy live entertainment, bounce houses and a beer garden. Those looking to chase a pot o’ gold can enter either the 5K race or the 1K fun run. Food trucks will be on hand for hungry runners and the first 100 to register will receive a free event shirt. photo of Trinity Falls St Patricks Race
  • One kind of movie or TV show that I especially enjoy these days is documentaries about wildlife. The British director David Attenborough has made a number of wildlife programs for BBC, such as the Living Planet series, and one recurring theme is spectacular scenes or events in nature. Vivid examples include the great migration of certain species of gulls that fill the skies along the coast of California in a huge river-like flow up to a mile wide for a few weeks in late summer and fall.
  • The Honey Grove Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet will be held March 30, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in the Honey Grove High School Cafeteria located on N. 17th Street. Come join us for this fun-filled evening of good food and great entertainment.

  • 1942 – World War II: United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs the executive order 9066, allowing the United States military to relocate Japanese Americans to internment camps. The internment of Japanese Americans in the United States during World War II was the forced relocation and incarceration in camps in the interior of the country of between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry who lived on the Pacific coast. Sixty-two percent of the internees were United States citizens. These actions were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Imperial Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. While this event is most commonly called the internment of Japanese Americans, the government operated several different types of camps holding Japanese Americans. The best known facilities were the military-run Wartime Civil Control Administration (WCCA) Assembly Centers and the civilian-run War Relocation Authority (WRA) Relocation Centers, which are generally (but unofficially) referred to as "internment camps." Scholars have urged dropping such euphemisms and refer to them as concentration camps and the people as incarcerated.
