Allowances for Kids Keep Going Up

Kids have a pretty sweet situation with allowance money these days.

I think I scored $2 per week from my parents to start, and then later on I got an extra $1.50 or $2 for mowing certain sections of the yard. That’s how I could afford those hot eleven dollar jeans!

The average allowance nowadays is just over $16 a week or $65 per month, according to the American Institute of CPA’s. That comes out to about $780 each year.

East Texas All-Stars Are One Win Away from Little League World Series

We learned last Friday just how amazing the East Texas All-Star Little League team is, when they scored 12 runs in the bottom of the first inning. Yikes! There was no way Oklahoma was going to overcome a hole that big. The East Texas team, based in Lufkin, won 14-1 at the Southwest Regional Tournament in Waco.

There have been other wins and losses in pool play over the past few days, including a big win Monday night against Colorado. If the team had lost that game, the season would have been over. They beat Colorado that night, and Louisiana yesterday to move to the final round.

This Friday, the East Texas All-Stars will play on National TV in the regional finals, for the chance to go to the Little League World Series.

But why bother our military heroes with that type of nonsense? The criminals behind this scam may really tick off a lot of people. We’re supposed to support the troops, not con them.

One of Astronomy’s Rarest Events Will be Visible in East Texas

When you hear the phrase, “Transit of Venus,” it sounds like it might be a band name or a good club with velvet ropes and a line out the door on a Saturday night. But it has nothing to do with pop culture. It really does have something to do with the planet Venus, and it’s a rare event that we’ll be able to witness tomorrow in Tyler.
