‘Shop With A Hero’ touches participants

By Dannie Oliveaux

Sixteen members from local law enforcement agencies, first responders and a park ranger helped brighten the Christmas holiday for 35 families during last week’s “Shop With A Hero” event at Walmart in Silsbee.

This year, more than $21,000 was raised through Walmart. It was a huge increase from $900 raised for three families in 2016.

“We raised money all year,” said Daniel Tucker, Walmart store manager. “But earlier this month, we received a $10,000 donation from a local family.”

Local plant nursery recovers after Harvey

By Tim Collin

Three months after Tropical Storm Harvey swept through Southeast Texas, Kay Wright at Betty’s Bloomers is still finding pots stranded by floodwaters in the woods behind her 16-acre property.

The pots are collected into a massive pile on the east side of the property for later use while the rest of the grounds are being restored.

“There are still pots back there,” she said, indicating the forest behind the property. “We picked up most of the plants that we could find, but the pots are still back there. We’re still in the process of picking all that up.” Betty Hinkie, Wright’s mother, started Betty’s Bloomers in the spring of 1968 to “get out of the house and have a hobby,” Wright said. Early workers at Bloomers included Hinkie’s five children — Kay, Jay, Pat, Dee and Marsha.
