5. Most people do a good job of cleaning the obvious places that germs hide in our homes. A good wipe with antibacterial cleansing cloths or other antibacterial cleaners is a great way to inhibit the growth of potentially sickening germs, which is especially important with the approach of cold and flu season, as well as the recent announcement about the increasing number of whooping cough cases in East Texas. However, there are spots or items in your home that you may not be cleaning regularly.  Check out this list and then go look them over inside your own home.

6. Tyler ISD athletic director Rod Kaspar announced the inaugural class of the Tyler ISD Athletic Hall of Fame Wednesday.  Kaspar says around 80 names were nominated for the first class.  The list was cut down to 12. You can see who made the cut here.

7. Forget everything you know about Celine Dion. The quintessential singer of big ballads like the Titanic theme song brings her power vocals back for the first time in six years. On a club-worthy, dubstep-esque dance track. Don't adjust your screen. You read that correctly. You can see the video at this link. Also, read about the new music from Keith Urban (with appearances by Miranda Lambert and Eric Church), and American Idol news, as well.
