It's been a long summer in Killeen, Texas. With the heat bearing down on most of the state, many looked for some type of heat relief during the extreme drought we were and are currently experiencing. So the Family Aquatic Center was a place for many in the city to go to cool off.

But for those who haven't visited the aquatic center, like myself, the time to enjoy the pool and slides will soon be coming to an end.

Killeen Family Aquatic Center Closing Soon

It's hard to believe that fall is already upon us isn't it? Though to be honest, I think we're all ready for some type of cooler temperatures.

[PICS] See Baylor Scott & White in Temple, TX Growing Through the Years

Baylor Scott and White, much like Central Texas, has grown throughout the years. It's hard to imagine that a structure that's dominated the Bell County skyline for decades now started out as a tiny frontier cabin. Let's take a trip through time for a quick visual history of Scott & White Temple. (Special thanks to Jeff Swindoll with Baylor Scott & White for his invaluable assistance.)
