A few weeks back, we discussed certain school districts in Texas banning cell phone usage during the school day. While some in the Killeen, Texas area supported the idea of school restricting the usage of phones during class, other parents worried about whether or not their child would be able to contact them if there was an emergency at their school.

When we took the idea to social media, parents commented their stance on the issue. Some liked the idea of a campus phone ban, while others were skeptical of whether such a ban helps in any way.

This is a very fair point from Sarah. I loved listening to my music during break times in college. But also there is a time and a place for that.

Listening to music during instruction or checking various social media platforms during that time can be a distraction in the classroom. Not only that, but texting and distracting someone else can be a point of contention.

This is definitely an interesting situation. If a student isn't showing that they are going to use their phone during the day, but it's visible, is it an issue?

With how quickly information spreads these days, some students might do silly things. So not being glued to the phone during school seems like the best course of action.

Overall, general consensus seems to be that parents are ok with students having phones, but they shouldn't be used during lessons. Do you agree or disagree with this? Let us know by sending us a message using the chat feature on our FREE station app.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!

Bet You Didn't Know: 10 Bizarre Texas Laws Still on the Books

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!

Let's take a look at 10 of the weirdest ones in the Lone Star State.
