    By mikeforman in Forman Flashes

    The UIL's reclassification and realignment released Friday featured no big surprises for Advocate-area teams. Memorial being placed in a district with the Converse schools -- Judson and Wagner -- may have caught some off guard but there were rumors that ...

    Cajun Shrimp Wrap

    By LAHightower in Community Conversation

    Once again, I decided to experiment with my grill on my day off. So this time I got some Gulf shrimp (no Thailand/China thermometer shrimp for me!) and went for a cajun meal. Shelling the shrimp wasn't my favorite thing ...

    By ChrisCobler in Your Advocate: an editor's blog

    Not many communities of our size have local TV news. In terms of size, I've been told KAVU-TV is the 205th out of 212 TV markets. A letter writer yesterday took a KAVU newscaster to task for a laughing fit about ...
