I was encouraged last week when traveling to several smaller towns around Lubbock during NewsChannel 11's Live Community Coverage Tour 2007.
I saw hundreds of folks excited about where they live, and that excitement was contagious among our staff here at NewsChannel 11.
We've been broadcasting this week long tour every year now since 2002. And this year provided new stories from five area towns. But you don't have to wait until next year's tour to see what's going on.
Consider this, load the family in the car on a Friday night and see a production at the Ragtown Theatre in Post. Or go see a classic movie at the Sunset Carson Theatre in Olton. Odds are you'll make a great memory.
And if there is a question that these area towns may be drying up, I'm here to tell you first hand they are alive and well and they do have something to offer.
So whether it be Post, Olton, Plainview, Floydada or Ralls, make time to see and learn about where we all live. You'll be glad you did.
