By Meagan Moore
 
Kountze Dental Center has been working to help the community with their needs for seven years. Even now, they are participating in a nonparishable food drive for the Share Your Christmas Food Drive hosted by Channel 12 News. All proceeds from this food drive will be donated to the South East Texas Food Bank. To help get patients to participate, for every five cans a person donates they will have their name placed in a drawing.

Pre-schoolers raise the bar

By Daniel Elizondo
 
Even when All Faiths Day School preschool director Traci Turner made a good gesture for patrons to use its facilities, bad people find a way to put a damper on the day. After the school had collected pennies for a contest, all the coins were sitting in a room near the bathrooms that Turner allowed the patrons to use during the weekend of Oct. 11.

Role Reversal

By Meagan Moore
 
Cindy Colwell of Lumberton is the type of person to help anyone in need. She works for the Hardin County Crime Victims and is there for anyone who "needs a shoulder to cry on or someone to listen to them." However, three years ago, Colwell's role reversed when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Suddenly, people were taking care of her.

An emotional fight

By Meagan Moore
 
Cancer seems almost like an abstract idea until it becomes personal. The treatments and surgery involved don't leave behind just physical scars, but emotional ones as well. Lynell DeCuirs from Kountze can agree that the process of ridding cancer from the body ends in a long journey of recovery. However, DeCuirs had her family and friends standing with her and supporting her throughout the entire trek.

Silsbee Garden Club names October Yard of the Month

The Silsbee Garden Club selected the home of Charlie Nell Hancock at 106 Seaman Drive as the October 2014 "Yard of the Month." There is a neat flower bed in the front yard. In the back yard there are plants along the house, in pots, and in the garage/greenhouse. There are too many types of plants to name in just one article, but we will mention a few.
