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.
