By Tim Collins

The Silsbee Little Theater has made an offer on the Pines Theater to AMC Theatres.

Barri Hoffman, president of Silsbee Little Theater, said if their offer to AMC Theatres is accepted, they plan to renovate the Pines into a multi-purpose entertainment venue with the capability of hosting live theater and music, but she emphasized the Pines would continue to show movies.

"We want to renovate the theater and have a similar venue like the Pines Theater in Lufkin, which is a multi-purpose venue," she said. "They have concerts there, they have community theater there, and they show movies there. We're looking at something along those lines."

 By Danny Reneau

In the Dec. 5 home game against the Beaumont Ozen Panthers, Silsbee head coach Joe Sigler faced an unusual situation as the Tigers entered their eighth game of the season.

He suddenly had an influx of players.

The Tigers’ roster that hit the floor included seven players who were straight off the football field and with one  practice behind them.

“I did not tell them (the players) but I tried to script the first half,” said Sigler. “I have got to know that I won't be afraid to put them in the game (speaking of the football players that just joined the basketball team).”
