Lumberton student studies in Rennes

By Brian Sattler

Kay-Alana Turner, a double major in management and Spanish from Lumberton, studied at the ESC Rennes School of Business in France during spring 2017. ESC Rennes is a semester-long exchange program offered through the Lamar University College of Business.

“Eventually, I would like to work abroad with a non-governmental organization, specifically focused on developing sustainable tourism, or in an embassy abroad,” said Turner, “so I saw this program as an opportunity for me to be in another country for a long period and work on my degree at the same time.”

By Autum Rendall

For generations and generations, the Silsbee Little Theater has been a huge source of entertainment in Southeast Texas. The group is actually the oldest dinner theater in Texas.

Original founders such as Anna Smith are still active in the program, and have watched the program’s legacy continue to grow.

Stolen identity happens more often than not

By Meagan Moore

There are advertisements and stories about people having their identity stolen, but most don’t believe it will ever happen to them, or that it’s very easy to have it stolen, but one Lumberton resident has only recently recovered from having his identity stolen, and from such an unlikely source.

Jeb Airey, pastor of Journey Community Church in Lumberton, did not always live in the southeast Texas area, but it wasn’t until he tried to move to the area that he realized anything was wrong. In 2006, Airey was living in Arlington, Texas with his family mastering at a church. He had been there for quite some time and had always challenged the congregation to think big.

Chairman James White Joins the Texas Conservative Coalition in Support of the Special Session

State Representative James White is honored to join the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) and fellow conservative legislators as a signee of the TCC letter to Governor Greg Abbott in support of his call for a special session.

In the letter, the signed legislators praise the victories that were made in the 85th Regular Sessionsuch as strengthening our local community safety with the ban on sanctuary cities and protecting our most vulnerable children with major foster care reform. Additionally, they thanked the governor for raising awareness of important issues that the Legislature can address after passing important agency sunset legislation. The TCC letter states that many of the issues that will be added rest on the fundamental principles of life, liberty, and property that Texans hold dear.
