By AndreaWhitney
 
Judge Sharyn Grisham comes to work everyday, and she passes the lone flower bed under the Silsbee Police Department sign. The sign serves as a landmark for Silsbee Police Department as well as the Municipal Court Building and the Senior Citizen Center, and houses a small flower bed enclosed by a brick structure.

Students project gains kudos at KHS

By AndreaWhitney
 
Michael Greer has been in Boy Scouts since he was in the fourth grade. Now the 18-year old Kountze High School senior has come full circle in the scouting world and is just about to complete his final, biggest, and most important project to date – the project to become an Eagle Scout. Every boy who is involved in scouting knows the Eagle Scout Badge is the holy grail of scouting. Those who obtain the Eagle Scout badge must come up with a project that contains at least 100 hours of labor and/or production, the project must benefit others in some way, and the project has to be approved by the scouting council.

Behind the scenes of Tiger Vision

By AndreaWhitney
 
Many of us can remember those morning announcements in high school. Flashbacks of the monotone principal giving a play-byplay dictation of what could be found on the day's lunch tray and which team the football boys would battle that Friday.
