Show Notes

After last week's mass shooting of elementary school students in Uvalde, Texas, we wanted to talk with someone familiar with childhood trauma who could speak to what the survivors in Uvalde are going through.

Cindy Thomas is a licensed professional counselor who has specialized in working with children for more than 20 years. She currently works for a local school district, and as you will hear, she has a keen understanding of how trauma affects children and how to help them.

Introducing "Tune In Texarkana"

Here's a taste of "Tune In Texarkana," a new podcast from the Gazette's Starbear Studio focused on local musicians. From Episode 1, BIG$ NovaGawd performs "You Vogue, I Meditate." The podcast's monthly episodes will feature host Erin DeBlanc interviewing artists across the spectrum of the Texarkana music scene, and each will include performances recorded live. "My vision for the podcast is to be able to give local artists a platform to share their music with a large audience. There are many talented musicians in Texarkana that many of us are unaware of, and having this podcast, thanks to the Texarkana Gazette, enables them to share their creativity and hard work with more people than they would entertain at a local venue," DeBlanc said. To listen to "Tune In Texarkana," search for and follow the show on your favorite podcast app. You can also listen at tuneintxk.castos.com or texarkanagazette.com/podcast. ...
