West Texas has always been my home, and Lubbock has been my work-home for 23 years as a hairstylist. My husband Joe and I have 4 children, Daniel (24), Zane (Forever 16), KaiDyn (13) and Riot (11). Daniel is married to Adrianna and together they have our wild and crazy 5 year old grandson Zeagan. KaiDyn and Riot, whom are siblings, are adopted and have been with us since January of 2018! Joe and I are actively involved in a Suicide Prevention and Awareness Program called #flyhighzane. In 2020 Joe left the oilfield to become self-employed owning a handyman business, Everybody Needs a Joe and Sons. I am here as a mom, a grandmother, a friend, and just someone who has been there. I'm here to talk. Favorite Restaurant: Cancun Favorite Lubbock Landmark: Hell's Gate behind Dunbar Lake (this spot was Zane's favorite) Favorite Tradition: Anything at the National Ranching Heritage Center

Zane Timmons Avenue: Part 2

Have you ever driven down a street, looked at the name of the street sign, and wondered where the name came from? I know I have, especially if it was a person's name. Why...

I just listened to a song I haven't heard in 2 and a half years. '45' by Shinedown. All the way through. It was like Zane wrote it. Small panic attack in the gym....

Dealing With the Hand Life Gave You

How do you deal with the hand life has given you? But really, how do you cope? Some might take the statement "the hand that life gave you" as being the way school is going, or...
