Tom Hanks’ Typewriter App Shoots To The Top Of The App Store

When I was in junior high school in the early-1970's (yes, I'm not a "Spring chicken" anymore), I learned to type in a summer school class, on a manual typewriter. At about that same time, my Mom bought an electric typewriter, and for the next 15 years or so, I used that machine to type out everything from homework reports in high school to song lyrics for bands I played in over the years. Sometime in the early-90's, it finally died, and I moved on to computers with word processors. I'm sure there are many people reading this who have never experienced the feeling of pushing down on a character key and hearing the "clack" as the letter hammer snapped into contact with the paper, transferring--character by character--your thoughts to a blank sheet of paper.

BBB Warns Social Media Users to Beware of Phishing Messages

These days almost every social media outlet allows for private messaging. Even Pinterest recently jumped on the messaging bandwagon. The unfortunate side effect is that scammers are quick to jump on too.

When con artists create emails, links or web pages assuming the identity of a trustworthy source and prompt you to share sensitive personal data, it’s called “phishing”. Phishing is big business for cyber criminals.

Stay classy, Houston!

A mom and her kids were kicked out of a Houston-area pizza restaurant because one of the kidlings needed a diaper change. As the restaurant's rest room didn't feature a diaper changing table, this resourceful matriarch used what she felt was the only option available to her: change out the kid's nasty Pampers right there in the dining room!

BBB: Students Give Financial Aid Scams a Failing Grade

The college fall semester will kick off soon, so now is the time to beware of scams targeting students. Scholarships and financial aid are a great way to help with the high cost of education. Even though finances have already been planned out for the school year, scammers still use this time as an opportunity to take advantage of students and parents. Before you think about last-minute financial assistance, Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin wants you to be wary of financial aid fraud.

KIXS Studio Gets New Blinds

The Townsquare Media-Victoria studios and offices building was built in 1984. Sometime along the way, vertical blinds were installed throughout the building. They were Aggies maroon in color, as a tribute to the then-general manager's alma mater. Well, a lot of years have gone by, and the once-proud maroon blinds had faded to an almost pink tint, and the mechanics to open and close them have long since quit working. So, thanks to Budget Blinds, the KIXS studio was the first room in the building to have those tattered old vertical blinds replaced with brand-new, ivory-white colored roll-up blinds! Check out the "before" and "after" pictures!

Help Your Neighbors Here In The Crossroads

Recent news stories of single-family fires here in the Crossroads region reminded me of the time my wife and I spent as volunteers with the American Red Cross Disaster Action Team in our previous home area of Northeast Arkansas. We saw first-hand how the Red Cross can make a difference in the lives of families who have been victims of a fire in their home. Local Red Cross chapters can offer assistance with temporary shelter, food, and clothing, as well as diapers, medicines, and other immediate needs. But did you know that the Red Cross receives NO government funding?
