By Tim Collins

Mummies, pirates, werewolves and shambling monsters raced across the stage at the Ice House Museum, Monday night, to the delight of children aged from kindergarten to second grade.

Silsbee High School theater students spent the last couple weeks writing Halloweenthemed skits and tales for the children in conjunction with Silsbee ISD’s Performing Visual Arts Council for Monday night’s performance. 

“I think it went amazing,” Angie Brown, president of PVAC, said. “We were a little bit nervous at first because not too many kids had shown up, but then they started pouring in.”

By Danny Reneau

ORANGE — The Silsbee Tigers opened District 10-4 Division 1 play at Little Cypress- Mauriceville on Oct. 13 and suffered an unexpected 58-38 loss on a night in which they struggled on the defensive side the entire game.

For the third straight week, Silsbee came into the game short on players due to injuries and the situation got worse almost immediately when Adonis Thomas, the team’s top running back, fell to the turf after pounding his way through opponents after the Bears grabbed an early lead.
