Silsbee Little Theater searching for new members

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.

On Sept. 24, the group will have its first meeting of the new season, and they are currently looking for members to join them on stage.

The Silsbee Little Theater has a long and rich history. The group started with a few performances in schools, shows at country clubs, and ended up in their current building which they have called home ever since. 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.

Silsbee churches feed needy in the community

By Autumn Rendall

A community joining together for charity is an important cause, and Silsbee has been lucky enough to have many organizations dedicated to this mission. The First United Methodist church has started a movement that reaches out a hand to those who might need it, by giving out free sack lunches at the Frank K. Rudisaile Pavilion.

The idea started with the church’s Evangelism Team. The team is a group of ladies dedicated to creating programs that meet community needs at no charge. Long-time team member Gay Fetteroff suggested the sack lunch programs at one of the meetings, and the group set to work.

KCISD’s Wallis asks former school district to pay heavy fines or face jail time

By Scott McDonald

Kirbyville and Bryan probably don’t have much in common other than being two Texas towns sitting three hours apart roughly on the 30th parallel. But they’ll most likely forever be linked together because of the ongoing saga between KCISD superintendent Tommy Wallis and the Bryan ISD.

Last week it took another turn when Dr. Wallis asked a district judge to find the BISD, one of its board members and four top administrators in contempt of court. Wallis claims they should face either heavy fines or jail time for released documents that proclaim 14 potential ethical violations he allegedly committed while in Bryan.
