Fort Worth based attorney Bryan Wilson who calls himself “The Texas Law Hawk” is known for making quirky videos in hopes of becoming viral. He’s even done a commercial for Taco Bell. Now the Law Hawk is taking on a new role, helping Santa Claus out of a legal jam right as the holidays are starting. Can The Texas Law Hawk save Christmas?
Cole Hamels has been with the Texas Rangers since 2015 and before that he was with the Philadelphia Phillies. Somewhere in there him and his wife Heidi purchased a mansion in Missouri, they were going to make it their dream home before the Rangers came calling and the couple moved to Texas. The deal was completed on Friday and news broke yesterday on Twitter that they decided to donate the home to a charity that benefits children, called Camp Barnabas
The home is a 32,000 square foot house sitting on 100 acres of land in Southwest Missouri near Table Rock Lake valued at about $9,418,400.
“Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it,” Cole said in a statement about the donation.
Twitter is exploding with comments on the donation in support of the Hamels’ decision.
Give this man a Sportsman of the Year Award! What a wonderful/generous act! .🏆🏆

Without a doubt, #ColeHamels and his wife did something a lot of other athletes talk about doing-making a difference. Got a new favorite MLB player, I truly hope others will follow his lead.

If you didn't love this man before and you STILL don't, maybe you need to turn in your "humanity" card…

Brian Bird is new to the Fort Worth City Council. He represents Southwest Fort Worth and recently made a recommendation to try and boost the national profile of the city in hopes of gaining interest from Fortune 500 companies seeking to relocate or build new operations. His suggestion? Remove the longhorn from the city’s logo.
It’s safe to say that right now Mr. Bird is not the most popular City Councilperson in Fort Worth. NBC DFW took a quick online poll which was spread around Facebook by Fort Worth residents and pages like “Fort Worth: Better Side of the Metroplex”. The response was resounding, 94% of those who voted rejected the idea of removing the longhorn in hopes of appeasing Fortune 500 companies and getting them to move their businesses here.
Fort Worth is home to the the headquarters for American Airlines and D.R. Horton from the Fortune 500 list and to several other companies such as XTO Energy, Cash America International, BNSF Railway, GM Financial, Galderma, Niagra Conservation Corporation, Pier 1 Imports – and we recently got a huge coup when Facebook built their newest data center here.
