It's been said that everybody has a story. And that is especially true in the Rio Grande Valley.
CHANNEL 5's Rick Diaz travels from Roma to Brownsville to Raymondville and every city in between looking for these interesting people.
They're people who have a passion for what they do and love to share their labors with the rest of us. They range from the man who raised a bobcat kitten with his other cats and dogs to the district attorney who still drives the Volkswagen he had in college.
These are the stories of your neighbors, your friends, and your relatives.
