In spite of expectations of record demand throughout the summer, ERCOT is expressing confidence that it will be able to meet that demand. Experts say further diversity among power suppliers is the key to future reliability. Gas prices are continuing to rise past record highs - Austin's average gas price could hit $5 per gallon soon. Early voting continues through Friday in the primary runoffs - Texans who did not vote in either party's primary in March can vote, and have the choice of voting for either party's candidates. Amidst continuing staffing shortages that threaten Austin's public pool opening schedule next month, current lifeguards are keeping up the pressure for a pay raise. Delays in security screenings at ABIA have crept back up - lines were out the door again over last weekend. HAAM - the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians - is seeking a $1 million allocation from Austin's city budget to cover funding shortfalls. Austin has been ranked the #4 best city in the U.S. in which to start a career, and #2 in Texas for our quality of parks. Meanwhile Williamson County has been named the richest county in the state measured by median income, which is now over $87,000 per year. A UT Tyler study has found marijuana legalization to be more popular in Texas than any of our top elected officials. The former home of Austin Java, and more recently the Barton Springs location of Ski Shores, has been re-opened by McGuire Moorman Lambert as their second location of Lou's.

To join our baseball and softball community for special offers and events text "baseball" to (214) 416-9771A true Texas storyteller, I sat down with Skip Johnson in his office in Norman, OK as he talks baseball, developing young men, hunting, and family. Widely regarded as one of the premier pitching coaches in the country, Skip Johnson has led the Oklahoma baseball program since June 2017. Since taking over the reins after serving one year as the Sooners’ pitching coach, he has led the Sooners to a 85-52 record in three seasons. Johnson’s influence on the program began immediately and has progressed each year. The OU pitching staffs have posted a progressively lower ERA in each of his three seasons in Norman. Oklahoma’s 3.92 team ERA in 2019 was only the seventh team ERA under 4.00 since 1980, and the first since 2015. In his first two seasons, Sooners pitchers posted two of the top five strikeout totals in program history. A total of 14 pitchers have heard their name called in the Major League Baseball Draft over the last four years. In the 2020 season shortened due to COVID-19, the Sooners compiled a 14-4 record and climbed as high as No. 9 in the national polls. In the process, OU turned in some historic performances. Dane Acker pitched Oklahoma’s first individual no-hitter since 1989 against No. 11 LSU in the Shriners College Classic, and the pitching staff combined for a Big 12-record 21 strikeouts in one game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Cade Cavalli became OU’s 10th first-round selection in the regular June Major League Baseball Draft when he was selected 22nd overall. A program-record four Sooners were drafted in the first four rounds, including all three pitchers in the weekend rotation (Cavalli, Levi Prater and Acker). Johnson coached OU to the program’s 38th NCAA Regional appearance in 2018. The Sooners posted a 38-25 record – the highest win total since 2013 – and reached the finals of the Tallahassee Regional. In the process, Oklahoma pitchers set a school record with 608 strikeouts. Outfielder Steele Walker was named a Second-Team All-American by Baseball America and the NCBWA, and pitcher Levi Prater was selected as a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball. Outfielder Kyler Murray, who went on to win the 2018 Heisman Trophy with the OU football team, was the ninth overall selection in the 2018 MLB Draft. Nine players were drafted, including five in the first 10 rounds (Walker in the second round, pitcher Jake Irvin in the fourth round, pitcher Austin Hansen in the eighth round and outfielder Cade Harris in the 10th round). Oklahoma pitchers surrendered the fewest home runs in the Big 12 Conference in 2017 and combined for 531 strikeouts to rank fourth in the league and fourth in OU single-season history. The Sooners’ 9.26 strikeouts per nine innings ranked second in the conference. As a team, OU pitchers struck out 10 or more batters on 24 occasions. Sooner pitchers combined for 17 starts of six innings or more in 2017, including the first two games of the Louisville Regional. Three Oklahoma pitchers were selected in the 2017 MLB Draft. Sooner closer JB Olson was drafted in the 10th round to extend a string of seven straight years with an Oklahoma player chosen in the first 10 rounds. OU saw starter Devon Perez and reliever Vincenzo Aiello selected on day three of the draft. Prior to coming to Oklahoma, Johnson spent a 25-year coaching career in the state of Texas, including the most recent 10 years as an assistant and associate head coach at the University of Texas. Johnson was hired as the pitching coach at Texas for the 2007 season under Augie Garrido, who stepped down from his position as the winningest coach in college baseball in May 2016 to take on new duties in the UT athletics department. In 10 seasons, Johnson helped the Longhorns to seven NCAA Regional appearances, four Super Regionals and three College World Series appearances. During his tenure in Austin, 32 Texas pitchers were selected in the MLB Draft, including 14 in the first 10 rounds and three first-round picks. Johnson also oversaw the development of six Longhorn pitchers who have made it to the big leagues. The Texas pitching staff produced a team earned run average below 3.00 on five occasions and struck out better than 7.5 per-nine-innings in five of his last eight seasons. As Texas reached its second CWS with Johnson on staff in 2011, his pitchers led the Big 12 in ERA (2.35), batting average against (.198) and strikeouts per nine innings (8.28). Prior to his time in Austin, Johnson was the head coach for 13 years at Navarro College of the NJCAA’s Texas Eastern Athletic Conference. From 1994-2006, he guided the Bulldogs to 13 NJCAA Regionals, nine TEAC championships and four regional titles while compiling 450 wins. Johnson has mentored a number of players outside of those he has coached at OU, UT and Navarro, regularly working with three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Homer Bailey of the Kansas Oakland Athletics and Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles, among others. A standout baseball player at Denton High School, Johnson began his collegiate playing career at Ranger (Texas) College. After a two-year career there, Johnson moved on to play baseball at the University of North Texas in 1988 before the school dropped its baseball program. He completed his collegiate playing career at UT-Pan American, lettering for the Broncs in 1989 and receiving his bachelor’s degree in 1990. Johnson earned a master’s degree in education from UT-Tyler in 1993. A native of Denton, Texas, Johnson and his wife, Cathy, have two sons, Tyler and Garrett.For more information about D-BAT and to find a location near you https://dbat.net/To join our baseball and softball community for special offers and events text "baseball" to (214) 416-9771For comments, suggestions, or to be considered a guest on the show please email john@behindthedishmedia.com

In Episode 19, I interviewed Phillip White, the founder of a stylish, size-inclusive activewear brand called Phit Clothing. I met Phillip several years ago at a boutique fitness studio in Dallas, and he quickly became a brand ambassador of my company, StudioHop. I got to hear his idea of Phit Clothing back in the day, and I'm so proud and impressed with what he's done with the brand now. Phillip opens up about how he had the idea of his clothing company, how he got started and he even tells a story about how a certain huge celeb got to see his bomber jacket. We also talked about his background and how he came to embrace his true self, no filters needed. Finally, we touch on the #BLM movement and how it has affected him and caused him to reflect on his entire life and the experiences he's had. Phillip was an open book in this episode and was really brave to share his story. He mentioned before that this was his first podcast interview and that he was ready to share. I feel so honored that he felt comfortable sharing his story with us. I learned a lot from him and I know you will too. In this episode, we talk about: how Phit Clothing got started (in an actual dream he had) what it means to be an inclusive activewear brand what needs he saw in the market the basics on how to actually create a clothing company a story about how he got his bomber jacket in front of a huge celebrity where he discovered his confidence & when he came out and the feelings along with it his take on the BLM movement and how it has caused him to reflect on some stories of his past lessons learned as a business owner &more All about Phillip: Phillip White was born in Lubbock, Texas, grew up in Longview, Texas and now lives in Dallas, Texas. He went to Kilgore College for an associates degree and then transferred to UT Tyler for his bachelors degree. He started out as a Regulatory Analyst at an energy company. Phillip is now a designer and entrepreneur, and he launched Phit Clothing in May 2018. Phit is a stylish, size-inclusive activewear brand for the active lifestyle and everything in between. Phit's mission is to make men feel confident and look good no matter where they are on their fitness journey. “No matter your size, shape, color or activity, you phit right in!” Where to find Phillip: Phillip's IG: https://www.instagram.com/iamphillipwhite/ Phit's IG: https://www.instagram.com/phitclothingofficial/ Phit Clothing website: https://phitclothing.com/ Other resources we mention: His signature houndstooth bomber jacket: https://www.instagram.com/p/B8Eny9onO3Y/ If you enjoyed this episode, please head to Apple podcasts, subscribe (so you'll see each new episode!) and leave a review and a rating: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-fitness-insider/id1485908967#see-all/reviews.

THE TROUBADOUR PODCAST - The Premier Red Dirt, Texas Country and Independent Music Podcast

Brandon Rhyder’s backstory in becoming a modern-day staple of the Texas and Red Dirt Music scene sounds familiar, yet is totally unique.  In the beginning, a small spark is lit inside the aspiring artist.  They ponder their life and the gravity of the decision to seriously give the dream of being a touring and recording artist an honest to goodness shot. Then, through a series of events, that small spark gets fanned into a flame and through hard work, dedication, perseverance and “conviction” leads to a successful career.  Sounds simple doesn’t it… But in Brandon’s case, before any of that happened, it took a little encouragement from his friend Ricky to make him seriously consider giving the music business a shot; and when he did, it completely changed the trajectory of his life.  Brandon grew up in northeast Texas, but it really wasn’t until he attended college at UT-Tyler that he even considered picking up the guitar.  Once he did, it was a natural evolution for him to start stringing chords together behinds the words he’d already been writing.  But, that’s almost where the story ends. After graduation, Brandon did what most good boys and girls do; he entered the workforce, took a steady job and settled down with his wife.  The thought of pursuing a career in music hadn’t even crossed his mind.  He and his new wife built a home and began what looked to be a very “normal” life.  Interestingly enough, within a year of building the home, and through the encouragement of the home builder himself, (the previously mentioned Ricky), Brandon and his wife headed for Austin.  They put a for-sale sign in the front yard and took off to chase the music dream.  Almost 20 years after making that decision now, it’s certainly proved to be the right one. In this interview with Brandon he talks with us about his early years in Austin and slowly building a following.  Then, he explains that after meeting and sharing the stage with legendary singer-songwriter, Walt Wilkins, things quickly changed.  Walt produced Brandon’s 2005 record, “Conviction”.  After that, Brandon’s career gained steam very quickly with larger crowds at live shows and record sales going way up. With the success of Conviction, Brandon was soon playing 180+ live shows per year; a pace that would continue for the next 6 years. In the interview Brandon also talks about recording trips to Nashville and working with other legendary artists like Radney Foster who would also go on to produce Brandon’s 2008 record, “Every Night”.  During this time of his career Brandon explains how he landed a deal with a Nashville publishing company and was travelling there at least six times a year or more to write with other people. Towards the end of this interview the conversation takes a more serious tone as Brandon divulges his recent multi-year struggle with a health issue.  Finally after many, doctors and many tests, they were able to pinpoint what had been plaguing him and now Brandon is feeling better than he has in years which has lead to great vocal range and more new songs being written. Brandon also talks about the awful disease that is Cancer, and how it recently claimed the life of his hunting and fishing buddy, who also happened to be his father-in-law.  The silver lining in this sad story is that Brandon has written and recently recorded a new tune stemming from this experience which pays homage to his father-in-law. In the final minutes of the interview Brandon relays a very sad story to us involving a friend and fan of his music named Jacob who was a member of our armed forces whom just in the morning before this interview was recorded, had attempted to take his own life.  Brandon makes clear that he wants to shine more light on the tragedy that is PTSD and the high suicide rate of former military personnel. In Carly’s outro for this show she gives a couple resources for those suffering from PTSD which we ask that all listeners of the podcast and readers of this blog to share with others.  The first is Mission 22, who’s goal is to put an end to veteran suicide. Please visit www.mission22.com and consider donating to their cause.  The second resource is the Suicide Prevention Lifeline whose number is 1-800-273-8255.  One life lost is one too many….

Meredith is from Chandler, TX. East Texas born and raised, she just graduated from UT Tyler with a Bachelors in Accounting. . Meredith started playing music at the age of 10, originally playing in a choir and opera. By the time she was 13, she started playing old country music. After Meredith played her first show, she earned enough tips to go out and purchase her own guitar from a pawn shop, which was a Johnston guitar. Meredith's mother purchased her a "Fake Book" of a bunch of old country songs. She learned chords and eventually started writing her own songs. . The music scene in East Texas has been present for a while but it is growing, even though at times it may seem like it isn't. Meredith has played many different wineries, breweries, and restaurants in East Texas, mostly in Ben Wheeler, Tyler and Longview. Meredith prefers to incorporate all styles of music and likes to play all styles as she grows in her skills. Being able to jump around in genres allows her to connect with the audience a lot more because it appeals to so many different demographics. Country, old folk music, 60s/70s/80s rock, jazz, blues, they all inspire each other and create nostalgia for the audience. . Meredith was in school and would have to do typing tests, which she capitalized on that opportunity to learn new songs by writing the lyrics in these tests. This along with mastering cover songs helps create repetition, which sometimes gets "old". Learning a new song or changing up how you learn is important. This idea of consistency through change allows you to prepare for fighting past your own thoughts and helps you to focus. Sometimes while you're playing in a show your mind will wander and you with have some really weird or dumb thoughts, which can derail your performance if you're not prepared. Being nervous is okay, you just have to fight the urge to fly away or given into a momentary fear. Fighting your thoughts through self-awareness helps you to gain confidence, which is really important to being a musician/performer. These skills sometimes require experience in order to learn how to overcome the hurdles. Stay true to your goals and passions, which will create new opportunities to get your first show or your next show! . In Meredith's experience, booking shows really came through relationship and word of mouth. Sometimes venues would approach her and sometimes she would contact venues directly to play, however, the most effective way she was able to get booked was through relationships she built with other people. As she made friends with everyone and heard her play, she would end up getting referred to play different venues and shows. . Meredith gives some perspective on local music and how we should encourage artists through our business. Sometimes going to a restaurant or a venue for a show or there happens to be a show, you walk in with a preconceived notion on what you should get out of the restaurant, venue, band or music. The best thing you can do is to have an open mind when you're going into an establishment with a local artist. Engaging musicians before or after shows is always nice, as well as showing appreciation for what you're hearing or experiencing is greatly appreciated. Sometimes just showing up to a local show and giving it a chance, can be a great surprise! If you don't like it, you can always leave and do something else here in East Texas. Meredith highlights some of her favorite East Texas food joints: San Pedro's Restaurant - Chandler, TX The Forge Bar and Grill - Ben Wheeler, TX Moore's Store - Ben Wheeler, TX Stanley's Famous Pit Bar-B-Q - Tyler, TX WaWa's Seafood Shack - Athens, TX . Meredith loves sweet wines, specifically Moscato . Song: Transit - on the coming Meredith Crawford Album in January 2019 .

Michael McClendon - winemaker, talks Rosé, varietals, vintage, and Kiepersol - Kiepersol Texas Podcast ep 6 . . . Michael McClendon is originally from Van, TX where Michael attended high school. He managed to get a scholarship to UT Tyler where you got a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. He got a call from Dr. Don Killebrew about an internship at Kiepersol. Michael didn't drink wine at that time and was surprised to find out there was even a Winery in East Texas. Michael met Pierre and Marnelle, working his way into the craft as a winemaker. . Michael believes that Bourdeaux varietals grown here at Kiepersol are what sets us apart, along with the fact at we are 100% Estate Grown. This does present challenges in the short-term but creates long-term success. No two vintages of grapes harvest or wines are the same at Kiepersol, which forces us to have to make choices that highlight special characteristics of the fruit that will change the experience of the wine. Things such as how much hang time the fruit has, how to prune and when to prune go a long way in determining the quality of the wine. Once the grapes make its way into the wine production facility, there are a lot of techniques and factors that go into creating special characteristics of the vintage. . Michael loves scientific discovery, considering himself between an "impresario and a farmer." . "Farmers are some of the first scientists." Michael points out how farmers were always thinking on their feet, figuring out contingency plans for different consequences during each growing season. . Michael dispels the idea that Texas winemakers and specifically East Texas winemakers are hillbillies or without class. With sophistication, Kiepersol actively seeks to make the best wine available on the global market. . With a heavy influence on the Rosé production at Kiepersol, Michael talks about the idea behind it. It's a red wine made in a white wine production. White wines sometimes get a quick and light pressing with the skins, leaving a different tint. Rosé can be processed the same, giving it a light red/pink or more of a rich color and palate. Rosé is blended with multiple styles of wines and can range in the hue of color based on its blend. . Kiepersol was talking to some Sommeliers about wanting more dry Rosé available in Texas. Which created the conditions and inspiration for us to formulate our current 2017 Rosé. . Here in Texas, we seasons of extreme heat, which we sometimes don't feel like drinking a full-bodied red wine, so we prefer something lighter, like rosé. Michael loves a nice Sauvignon Blanc, but sometimes a good Rosé hits the spot. . There is a belief about how Texas makes dry rosé just as good as anyone else in the world. Which speaks testament to the various AVAs and terroir throughout Texas. . Michael as an impresario wanted to experiment and break the rules in winemaking with the Kiepersol Rosé Reserve by oaking it and using the best grapes grown to accomplish some complex results. Here in USA, it's like being in the wild west for winemakers, as they have a lot of freedom to try new things out. Compared to the old wine world, where each region has a lot of laws and regulations in what style of grapes they can grow or make into wine. . Not only did Michael and his team create a Rosé and Rosé Reserve, but he also created a canned Rosé called Flight. Flight is something completely outside of the box, it cannot be seen. Since our wine is great, we are able to have the freedom to experiment in this new format. This delicately sparkling rosé was created to be enjoyed in the format that people want to enjoy their wine. Flight allows us to educate and bring new people to understand and appreciate wine. You can take Flight to a picknick or bbq or to an event where glass is typically prohibited.

We were very fortunate to get on the calendar of the current TSCPA Chairperson – Kathy Kapka – for this episode of Life In Accounting: The Where Accountants Go podcast. Finding Your Calling at 50 This episode is about much, much more than just this topic, but one of the facts I found interesting about Kathy's journey was that like many people, she tried out several career paths – tax, audit, governmental related accounting, etc – before finding what was truly the best fit for her – teaching future leaders in our profession. It was while developing the Internal Audit function at the UT Tyler campus that the Dean asked her to teach a course.  She was resistant at first – she was an auditor, not a teacher – but she decided to give it a shot.  It wasn't long until she realized that the day she looked forward to the most each week was the day that she taught that one course on campus.  It was at this point – at about 50 years old – that she found her true calling. TSCPA Her involvement with TSCPA started purely as an effort to educate herself further on GASB. As she got more involved at the chapter though, she was eventually asked to serve in one of the appointed roles at the Executive Board level which ultimately led to being nominated several times for the TSCPA Chair position. Important Mentors Kathy credits several people with helping her along in her journey. Among those mentioned are Barbara Bass, Fred Timmons, and Jeff Gregg.  Barbara was the individual that originally encouraged Kathy to become a CPA in the first place, and has since remained a great friend.  Fred & Jeff are both dedicated TSCPA volunteers as well as colleagues in the profession and helped Kathy as she grew in her involvement with the CPA association. Kathy is an extremely personable and transparent individual. If you would like to contact her for further information, she can be reached at kkapka@uttyler.edu. I know you will thoroughly enjoy this interview. There's more to come!
