East Texas here
How long ago was this? Who did you know? My brother in law is from Graham. I lived in Olney from 1979 to 1987 (went to college) then on to WF for five years..then Arlington from 1992 to 1996 when I moved to Indiana.
I didn't think anyone would know of Olney. And I know Newcastle pretty well too.
Well I used to live in TX until earlier this month. I personally do not like TX anymore. I lived there for 7 yrs and didn't see much but the same thing. It's too hot and over crowded. People are moving there all the time because it is the biggest state in the union. Racism is still going on and the good oh boy club. My spouse was let go from his job because a white female complained to her boss that she didn't want him to speak to her anymore. They blew it all out of contents and then said that it was harassment. WHAT A JOKE. As if he was banned for saying hi to white females. Everyone spoke to each other which is just plain silly to think it was something else. Anyway long story short when he tried to get unemployment his boss told TWC that he was let go because he was stalking a female employee. Not only they blew it all out of portion, they are also big liars. I'm far away now and I love my new state. It's clean, quite and so much to do here. Forget all the hipe about TX. Jobs not all what they are made it up to be either because after 8 long mos he was still unemployed.
And my family lived near Austin for a while. Loved it there and would go back if we could.
