Here’s a video of me installing laminate wood flooring in my home. I provide a few tips and insights regarding the install process. Thanks to my wife for shooting some of the video!

The Madisonville Meteor Newspaper

http://www.madisonvillemeteor.com – With a proud history of service since 1894, The Madisonville Meteor features news and events from all across Madison County. It is published in print every Wednesday and can also be read online. Their new website offers several interactive tools for readers who wish to contribute comments, articles, and other media. Take a look!

The Meteor published an article in last Wednesday’s paper about the outstanding performance of the Madisonville FFA Team in District competition. This article followed on the heels of the Madison County Farm Bureau banquet that my wife and I attended in October, where the FFA Ag Issues Forum team held a debate over the proposed Bedias Reservoir. The team did a great job of presenting both sides in an informative and entertaining fashion that kept the audience engaged throughout. The young men and women on the Ag Issues team took 1st place at District and will be advancing to state! Hats off to them for hard work and rewarded effort!

Three Texas Cities Among Nation’s Most Affordable

NEW YORK (Forbes) – Three Texas cities made Forbes’ list of ten most affordable U.S. cities.

San Antonio came in sixth with Houston right behind at seven. Austin claimed the final spot on the list and was noted as one of the nation’s hottest cities for high-tech jobs.

Forbes attributed the number of Texas cities on the list to the state’s business-friendly climate, rich natural resources and stable housing economy.

“The state (as a whole), and Houston and San Antonio (in particular) are deriving significant income from domestic in-migration. People are moving to Texas because of job availability and because of the cost of housing being so low,” said Real Estate Center Research Economist Dr. Jim Gaines. “Texas has always been a wide-open laissez-faire, low-control, low-regulation place.”
