Hakem Dermish: If it ain't broke, don't fix it

CLEVELAND - Wait 'til next year.  NEXT year is our year.  They should blow this team up.  

Things we won't be saying this summer. We can finally toss out those tired thoughts like 3-day-old guacamole. 

Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin recently told ESPN Radio, "We do intend to keep this group together and see what we're capable of."

We saw what this team is capable of. They came back down 3-1 to win the NBA Championship. Everyone witnessed that. Are they capable of more? Like back-to-back titles? Of course they’re capable of more, but how do you get more from a team that just won a title. A simple idea can be applied: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Larry the Answer Guy: Fireworks used to fill the skies over the Mall of Abilene

Posted: Yesterday 8:21 p.m. 0

How long were fireworks shows held at the Mall of Abilene?

The first fireworks display was in 1979, a few months after the Mall of Abilene opened.

Back then, there were wide open spaces to the west and south of the mall. No Target. No Lowe's. No apartments. No hotels. No streets, for that matter.

Judging from old pictures, you could get to the mall only from Buffalo Gap Road; from Clack Street, which was a two-way freeway access road; or from Ridgemont Drive, which came to a dead end just past the mall.
