The Texas trifecta: growth in jobs, population and pay

median for the first time since 1985. The momentum keeps building, which is welcome news for workers stung by stagnation and recession. In December, the Federal Reserves Beige Book cited several reports of pay increases and wage pressure in the Texas district. The push has come from a variety of occupations.

Miscues cost Texas in loss to No. 11 Oklahoma St

Jon Holmes has to find a way for us to stay in the game, Barnes said. He starts the game and was on the bench because of plays he didnt make. Turnover turned into a foul, the block out turned into a flagrant, its an easy call to make. Its one thing to play hard, but its another to play smart. The Cowboys got off to a quick start, but Texas used strong play on the offensive glass to tie the score at 20 with 8 minutes left in the first half. Croakers 3-pointer gave the Longhorns a 27-22 lead and made the home crowd uneasy.
