Dave Wheaton

I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could. I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan (home of Tony the Tiger). I've got two kids who take up most of my time out of the office, but when I get "me time", I'm either taking in some live music or a sporting event. Since relocating, I also fell in love with the Texas music scene. I've been lucky enough to be nominated for DJ of the Year 4 straight years by the Academy of Texas Music, and was the 2009 recipient of the Academy's Palmwood Award. I'm a huge sports fan, and my loyalties are with the Michigan Wolverines, Chicago White Sox and (sorry) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With more and more children being identified to have this neurological disorder, the need for additional research, education and other resources becomes more and more necessary. There are a lot of ways you can show support for autistic people and their families, including participating in the 2nd annual 'Swing 4 Autism' Golf Outing, coming April 6th at Maxwell Golf Course in Abilene.

NBC Thinks Trace Adkins Threatening Steven Baldwin is a Reason to Watch Celebrity Apprentice. I Beg to Differ

Watching TV has become strange for me lately. It seems as though the sparkle of all the programs I used to watch has worn off. Shows like 'American Idol', 'NCIS', 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition', the 30 different Law & Order shows and others have all become less important to me than they were a few years ago. The same hold true for 'The Apprentice'.
