J.W.’s News Update: Thursday June 16, 2011

Good Thursday, Here are some stories making headlines today:


Traffic on North Bishop Street in Texarkana, Texas has moved to its new intersection with New Boston Road (U.S. Highway 82).

The street moved to the new intersection on the west side of Jarvis Parkway (U.S. Highway 59/Loop 151). The old intersection is closed to traffic. The Texas Department of Transportation is also closing Plummer Lane permanently between Walton Drive and North Bishop.


Fewer Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, though applications remain above levels consistent with a healthy economy.

The Labor Department says unemployment benefit applications fell 16,000 to a seasonally adjusted 414,000, the second drop in three weeks. Officials say that’s a positive sign that layoffs are slowing.


In Sports:

The Dallas Mavericks celebrated their recent NBA Championship with a Victory Parade today in downtown Dallas. The Mavericks beat the Miami Heat 4-2 in the best of seven series this past weekend.

The Boston Bruins are the NHL Hockey Champions for the first time since the Bobby Orr era back in 1972. The Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 in the deciding seventh game played in Vancouver last night.
