This week, the youngest McAuliffe got a letter from George H.W. Bush, the 90-year-old former president known for his letter writing.

“Declan, I, too, was born on June 12th — but that was 90 years ago,” wrote Bush. “I’ve had a long, wonderful life, and I wish the same for you. God bless you.”

Veteran Texas Anchor John Gilbert Returns to Roots at KBTX

Veteran anchor John Gilbert has landed at KBTX in the Bryan-College Station, TX. For the past eight years, Gilbert has worked as a reporter and anchor for nearby KCEN. He left the Waco NBC-affiliate just over two weeks ago.
