LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Eleven-year-old Levi Stinson is Shallowater's youngest entrepreneur. He sells flavored ice treats in the summer, and he works just about every day from noon until 4 p.m. His business is in Shallowater, and it's called Shallow-Ice.

Stinson says he makes a profit, "Sometimes I make $60 a day, sometimes $30."

If you drop by the young Mr. Stinson's business you can buy shaved ice in flavors like Tiger's Blood, Bahama Mamma and several others.
