Terri Conner Searching For Missing Husband Brian

#texasnewsblog #houston #brianconner


No sign of missing man Brian Conner was found on Sunday after he disappeared on Saturday in Cypress Creek near Houston. Along with dozens of paid and public volunteers, his wife searched for him on Sunday but no new clues as to his whereabouts were found. It was learned yesterday that Brian Conner is a diabetic. Conner's wife, Terri, told police she saw Brian's kayak go upside down and she tried to get his head out of the water with her paddle, but her efforts were not successful. The search for Brian Conner will resume later today.

Was Rick Perry's Twitter Post Really An Accident?

#texasnewsblog #rickperry #twitter


Late yesterday, there was a post on the official Twitter account of Texas Gov. Rick Perry that showed a disparaging picture of the Travis County District Attorney. Not long after that picture was posted, it was deleted from Twitter and a message was posted allegedly from the Governor saying that message was unauthorized. While I am no great fan of Gov. Perry, I am not against him either. That said, I wonder if that particular posting on Twitter was REALLY an accident or just a publicity stunt?

McLane Stadium Looks Better At Night

#texasnewsblog #mclanestadium #baylorbears


The Baylor Bears have just finished their first game at the new McLane Stadium and while the new field looks great during the day, it appears simply outstanding at night from the air. As the game Sunday night came to a close, there were several shots on television showing exactly how beautiful McLane Stadium is from the air, at night. I have lived in Waco for decades, but never has the pride in my hometown been greater.

Political Ads Filled With Exaggerations & Lies

#texasnewsblog #gregabbott #wendydavis


With Election Day 2014 almost upon us, it won't be long before millions of TV sets across Texas will be humming with political ads from the major party candidates. I discovered long ago that average voters learn absolutely nothing from those canned 30 and 60 second advertisements. In fact, the vast majority of them are nothing more than exaggerations and lies. My guess is most of the negative ads this political season will be run by Greg Abbott, Wendy Davis or PAC's who will be trying to get one of them elected as the next Governor of Texas. It's amazing to me that any politician is able to raise millions of dollars from average people, considering none of them do what they promise after taking the oath of office. Election Day cannot come soon enough for me.

Bryce Petty Key To Baylor Bears Success

#texasnewsblog #brycepetty #baylorbears


On Sunday night, the Baylor Bears will take to the field of their new football stadium to play SMU. Ever since RG3 and more importantly Coach Art Briles came to Waco, the Bears have been on fire and are even listed as the number 10 team in an AP poll before the first play is snapped. This season, starting quarterback Bryce Petty will once again lead the team. However, when Baylor plays SMU on Sunday – their new home 'McLane Stadium' will be on full display for all the world to see. If Baylor is to be successful this season, quarterback Bryce Petty will need to play each game like the presumptive Heisman Trophy winner he is likely to be later this year.

Like many of you, my favorite time of year is just beginning.

I'm not real sure which teams will end up as state champions in Texas this year, but it's the overall experience of attending games and cheering until my throat hurts that gives me the most excitement.

Thomas Wayne White Found Dead

#texasnewsblog #copperascove #homeless


A homeless man was found dead behind a dry cleaner's in Copperas Cove this week. His body was discovered on Wednesday morning, but his name was not released until Thursday. There was no apparent trauma visible on his body, but more will be known after an autopsy is performed. While it is unknown at this time why Thomas White was homeless, it is a terrible shame that so many people live on the street of Texas. Since his body was found not to far from Fort Hood, I wonder if he might not be a former military service member. Sadly, far too many retired members of the military find themselves homeless after serving their country.

Winless Preseason For Dallas Cowboys

#texasnewsblog #dallascowboys #jerryjones


I hope when the regular season begins the Dallas Cowboys forget what happened during the preseason of 2014. Honestly, my gut feeling is that the regular season will not be much better for 'America's Team' as bad coaching and terrible personnel decisions by the ownership seem to always come up short for the team. I remember back when Jerry Jones fired Jimmy Johnson. The reason given was that Jerry did not think he was getting enough credit for the then Dallas Cowboys success. The past 20-years have proven to me that most likely back then the decisions made by Jones were not that vital to the success of the team. It was Jimmy Johnson who built the Dallas Cowboys into a championship franchise, not Jerry Jones.

Why Did Katerin Romero Commit Suicide?

#texasnewsblog #fortworth #suicide


Friends and family joined together Thursday night to say farewell to a young woman who took her own life this week. 17-year-old Katerin Romero jumped to her death from a bridge overpass on Interstate 30. Romero was a student at Eastern Hills High School in Fort Worth. Like so many other teenagers who commit suicide, those closest to Katerin Romero did not see the extent of her pain, because she hid it so well. There is never a good reason to end it all and sadly far too many people of all ages become so depressed they just can't see the reality that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
