A little bit of everything to enjoy

 

The name may have changed but the fun and excitement will remain the same. Once called the Texas Cajun Heritage Festival has now been renamed the Spring Music Fest and 2012 Fishing Classic, which will be held at 700 Simmons Drive in Orange near the City Boat Ramp.

Mother’s Day is not just a one-day-a-year thought for Staci Richards, busy mom and business owner. She thinks about it almost every day all year long. And the thinking and work she does often goes on far into many nights, as well. It also involves lots of communication, travel, gift buying, wrapping or packaging, and giving and listening. The stories she hears are amazing and ones she’ll never be able to forget.

Even Harry Potter had an ending – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.” It took eight movies, but now it’s over. With certain video game series, we consumers might not be as lucky.

There’s no end to the possibilities of creating new, better, upgraded versions of the most popular video game series. Just this year, expect Max Payne III, LEGO Batman II, Dead or Alive V, Epic Mickey II, Resident Evil VI, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Assassin’s Creed III and Halo IV.

Even though it seems that fewer folks are squirrel hunters now, the season is open in most East Texas counties as of May 1. Out in the Hill Country, there is no closed season for squirrels. Hunters that enjoy still or stand hunting during the Hill Country deer season will normally see numerous fox squirrels. East Texas offers both fox squirrels and gray squirrels, depending to the type of terrain where you are hunting.

Kayaking is the go-to adventure sport in Southeast Texas. It’s relatively cheap to get into, you don’t have to buy gas and you don’t have to pay a boat registration fee each year.
