  1. Yeah, I don't think Wikipedia knows about it either. That's why they posted this at the top of the article: The topic of this article may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline...If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged, redirected, or deleted.
  2. Also -- take advantage of 529 plans. In Virginia we have a bunch of account options -- and some of them have really good rates of return. It's not like you have to have a ton of disposable income to contribute. Just a little here and there adds up over the years, especially the accounts that track the market. The rules vary by state, but generally they're a good way to cushion the blow of college costs.
  3. I was there in the 80s and had a couple of friends who took out loans. For most, their parents paid the bill or, like me, they worked part time jobs. I took around 12 hrs a semester and worked around 30 hours a week. Took me 5 years, but I was able to pay my own way. But tuition was reasonable then and it was fairly easy to work your way through if you could. But today's costs are insane. It's virtually impossible for kids to work part time and pay their own now.
  4. Yeah, I've been checking that out. Kinda miss strolling through the valley of tears that was Rowdy Talk, though.
  5. Good piece. I may be mistaken but wasn’t the SWC Roundup going on an indefinite hiatus? If so, glad it’s back.
  6. I’m sure it will be highlighted in the next issue of the North Texan.
  7. Looking at the northwest boundary -- am I correct that it's taking in quite a bit of Cement City? Hope so. What a hellhole. And the northeast boundary looks like it includes my old place, Hickory Village.
  8. I read the online version and thought it would improve once it was out of BELO's grasp. I was wrong. Now, pretty much the only things I read are the sports and the obits.
  9. Yeah, and no Prairie St Pub or Green Derby. All of my haunts are gone.
  10. And we stood out by the ubiquitous snuff can rings on the back pockets of our bell bottom Levis.
  11. And check out the guy behind Dawson wearing the Mickey Mouse Club hat. Yep. Times have changed.
  12. A fair amount of love for him on the Baylor board.
