25 years ago H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger published the book "Friday Night Lights." 

He had quit his newspaper job at 34-years old to write a nonfiction novel about a small town football team in a backwater part of Texas. At the time he had no concept of what it would mean to his life and the lives of the people he wrote about. 

What does the story mean now?

Buzz Bissinger will be at the H-E-B on Potranco Road in San Antonio at 6pm Thursday as part of his book tour celebrating 25 years of "Friday Night Lights."

San Antonio is seeing a big drop off in what was once a growth industry, payday lenders. According to the San Antonio Express-News' Patrick Danner, the recent decision by EZCorp to pull the plug on San Antonio, and taking 30 payday shops with it, represents a 40 percent drop since the city instituted tougher regulations on credit companies a few years ago.
