    DENISON, TX -- "I recycle,” said Vincent Shores, Denison resident. “Pretty much anything I have in the house that's recyclable, I recycle it.” Recycling hasn't always been an option for people who live in Denison, but last year the city started a new program that offers curbside pick-up. "I just need about two or three more bins actually,” said Shores. “I have to borrow my neighbor's." "I love it,” said Tammy Ford of Denison, “I would have never done it if it wasn't right at my curb side, I...More >>

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A new event in Grayson County was designed to attract Christmas shoppers.

With only a few days left, those searching for gifts had a chance to pick up some last-minute items at Texoma Holiday in the Park.

Organizers say more than 80 vendors set up shop at the Mayor Arena at Loy Lake Park. A "kettle corn" vendor from the Whitewright area says he and his wife have taken part in similar festivals before, and decided to start their own.

"We have a vast selection of anything you need," says organizer Jerry Charlier. "We have Amish pastries, kettle corn, we have beef jerky, we have barbecue, we have crafts, a little bit of everything."

Charlier says the rain kept some people home, but things seemed to be picking up in the afternoon. Parents could also bring their kids to take a free picture with Santa Claus. They hope to make this an annual event.
