Celebrating Black History Month

(SPM Wire) February, which is Black History Month, is a great opportunity for schools and individuals to turn their focus toward an important aspect of American history.

There are many ways people can commemorate the month across the country. This year, many are planning trips to the nation’s capital to visit the newly opened National Museum of African American History and Culture. This Smithsonian Institution museum features exhibitions on slavery, emancipation, social justice, cultural traditions and more.

Senior Expo coming next week

What does 55+ look like today? 55 may mean a discount at a few restaurants and the AARP card in the mail but there is still much to be done and lots of life still to be lived. Many adults are working successfully into their 70s and beyond. Seniors are certainly some of the most active travelers, civic volunteers and contributing members of our society.

Terrible Texas Tunes

It’s official— Texas native Ashlee Simpson is behind the lone star state’s worst song, according to a state-wide survey of 1,000 Texans. 

The survey, commissioned by Super Bowl weekend music festival the Super Bash Houston, asked random Texans to vote for their state’s worst homegrown song either about Texas or performed by a Texas native. 

From Vanilla Ice to LeAnn Rimes, the poll proved that when it comes to dissing bad music, Texans aren’t afraid to dish out tough love to their own.
