Utility bills higher for October

By Tim Collins

Hardin County residents have reported higher electric bills for the month of October.

Entergy spokeswoman Kacee Kirschvink said Tropical Storm Harvey has affected the accessibility of Entergy’s meters, necessitating estimated bills for the month of September, either due to debris, high waters leading to damaged equipment, or locked or impeded gates, which prevented Entergy employees from reading meters.

Glenn Wendling, of Lumberton, said he lives off FM 421 and U.S. 69, in a place that received little water. He said Entergy estimated his September bill at $27.81, while his October bill was around $148. He said his August bill was only $14 less, at $134.41.

Evadale VFD promises ‘spooky thrills’ at annual Haunted House

By Tim Collins

EVADALE — Unwary visitors file into an unlit hallway, where a thick fog has settled. In the distance they can hear the creaking of plywood and the distant echoes of a baby crying.

One person stumbles in the dark and reaches her hand out, until her fingers rest on the shoulder of a friendly figure. But then she realizes the person in front of her is unfamiliar; too tall, too lanky to be the friend she walked into the maze with.

Then the figure’s arms raise high above its head to reveal a chainsaw and a mask made from human skin. Then the woman screams. And runs.
