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.

Being a White Sox, Red Wings and Michigan Sports Fan in Abilene is Challenging

It's easy to be a fan of the hometown team. I know, because until 2006 my son and I were lucky enough to have our favorite teams around our hometown of Battle Creek, Michigan showing on my TV regularly. And I would be able to go see a game in person from time to time. Now that I've moved to Abilene, I'm left out of the loop. I can't make a day trip to see my favorite teams anymore. Regional sports teams like the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, Aggies and Longhorns, and even the Dallas Stars are easy to come across on TV in Abilene, but not my White Sox, Red Wings and Wolverines.

A growing number of children are being diagnosed with autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The last figure I heard was that 1 out of 110 children is diagnosed with ASD. 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'.
