Waco Growth Pushes Building Permits & Taxes Higher


It’s hard to be too surprised about rising tax appraisals when the superlatives about Waco real estate keep piling up.

Waco-area ZIP codes last year topped the list for most popular searches on Realtor.com, thanks in part to a certain television show. In the first quarter of 2017, the city of Waco saw a record 151 housing permits issued.

And local real estate agents are seeing things they’ve never seen in Waco, such as bidding wars over coveted homes.

Profile Of La Vega Player Mariano Falcon


La Vega did not get off to a good start this season.

The Pirates were 1-5 to start the year before dropping their district opener to Mexia.

At that moment, Mariano Falcon told himself in order to help his team turn things around, he had to score a goal in every game.

And that’s what the senior midfielder did in all but two contests through district.

Falcon even recorded a hat trick against Robinson.

“He put the team on his back this year and said you’re going to go as far as I go,” La Vega coach Paul Deleon said. “He played extremely well through district and through the playoffs.”

Falcon finished the season with 16 goals and five assists as he was named the District 17-4A MVP.

This success came after a down year his junior season.

Branson Aycock Is Youngest Firefighter In Moody


A young man of few words, Branson Aycock speaks mostly through his actions to show his commitment to his small community of a little more than 1,000. Aycock is the youngest firefighter in Moody.

The 18-year-old started with the Moody Volunteer Fire Department at 16 as a junior volunteer firefighter but has been around tanker trucks and fire hoses his entire life, he said.

“My grandpa and dad were both firefighters before, and I used to go on calls with my dad,” Aycock said. “But they’re not firefighters anymore.”

Now, the soon-to-be graduate will start working to follow in their footsteps and become a full-time professional firefighter, he said.

He will graduate from Moody High School in May with plans to attend McLennan Community College’s fire academy and hopefully join the Waco Fire Department once he’s finished. He also hopes to remain a volunteer firefighter for Moody, Aycock said.

STD's On The Rise In Waco / McLennan County


The Waco-McLennan County Health District Thursday reported an increase in the number of HIV and syphilis cases in the county.

"It's an ongoing outbreak," Waco-McLennan County Public Health District infectious disease specialist Dr. Edward Farley Verner said Friday.

"We're just getting more new cases this year than we have in the past."

Since Jan. 1, 12 new cases of HIV have been diagnosed, 11 of them in sexually active men who are having sex with other men.

Since March 14, five primary and secondary cases of syphilis have been diagnosed, all of them involving men having sex with men.

"Most likely the HIV transmission and syphilis transmission that's happening is probably from someone who doesn't know they have it themselves," Verner said.

The health district is urging homosexually active men to be tested for HIV and syphilis.

Waco Church Sending Food To Haiti


On Friday, nearly 100 volunteers at the Central Christian Church in Waco spent part of their Good Friday packing more than 22,000 meals for children in Haiti.

"Families can spend their day off or this holy day doing anything they want, and the fact that they have chosen to come and spend some of their day giving to other people really is the message of Jesus Christ. To be here, to love others, and to serve others," Central Christian Church Minister of Families Kristin Jack said.

The meals will go to the organization Kids Against Hunger, a non-profit organization that gives nutritious food to starving children in the U.S. and abroad.

This year, the food will benefit children in an orphanage in Haiti.

Dallas Fog On Monday Morning

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Early this week I posted a picture of downtown Dallas that was taken from an airplane on Monday morning during a fog event. While that picture was pretty cool, the one above showing a closer view of what that fog looked like from the top of the Bank of America building in downtown is even better. While it is not unusual for the DFW area to get fogged in from time to time, on Monday there were some really cool pictures taken while it was happening.

Texas Windmills Both Present & Past

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Growing up back in the 1960's I never envisioned the changes that have taken place in windmills in Texas. In the picture above it's easy to see why our grandchildren will have a different image in their heads of what a windmill is in the future. I grew up in rural West Texas and the only windmills we saw back then were the old fashion type. I must admit though those huge new windmills that produce electricity are pretty cool to look at too.

Christmas Lights On San Antonio River Walk In 2014

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Already tens of thousands of Texans have visited the San Antonio River Walk area which is currently decorated for the Christmas holiday season. I visited there many years ago and have never forgotten the experience. Even though the year I went to San Antonio for the holiday's was terribly cold, I still enjoyed seeing the lights and eating some really good food. In my opinion, the downtown section of the 'Alamo City' is one of the best places to visit during Christmas and New Year as well.

I remember when I was young traveling to Big Bend on a mission trip to assist people in Mexico. We camped out in a National Park and went back and forth between Texas and Mexico each day on a small boat that was pulled by men on both sides by a rope. The location where we camped for one week looked very similar to the picture above. While some folks think far West Texas is baron and ugly, to many others like me it is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Farm With Big Trees, Bluebonnets & Barn

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Like many other Texans, I grew up in a small town and worked during the summer months on a farm. Maybe that is why I still love looking at pictures like the one above even though I left my rural roots many decades ago. For me, it is very relaxing looking at a picture of an old farm with big trees, bluebonnets and an old barn weathered by time. This picture brings back so many great memories.
