Ordinary rocks take an extraordinary adventure

By Meagan Moore

There is a new fad spreading throughout Southeast Texas and even into other states and countries.

Some say it is more enjoyable and entertaining than Pokemon Go, which has died out quite a bit since the app’s release

Brenda Kendrick woke up at 2:30 in the morning on Feb. 24 with an idea she believes to be inspired by the Heavenly Father. The idea came about to create an activity with her grandchildren, and since they always did arts and crafts, Kendrick thought it a brilliant idea to paint rocks.

Senate voucher scheme holds school funding hostage

A key school-finance bill passed by the Texas House was hijacked last week by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and some members of the Texas Senate intent on passing a scheme for private-school vouchers.

“These Texas senators, under the approving eye of the lieutenant governor, are playing politics with the kids of our state by taking one of the most beneficial education bills in recent history and poisoning it with vouchers that would instead fund private schools with no accountability to taxpayers,” said Louis Malfaro, Texas AFT president.

Silsbee PD chief resigns

By Scott McDonald

The City of Silsbee will search for its third police chief in six months after the abrupt and unexpected resignation of chief Waylan Rhodes last week.

Rhodes on May 8 was named the new police chief for the City of Cameron, a town of just less than 6,000 residents an hour and a half northeast of Austin. Rhodes began his job in Silsbee on Jan. 9 to replace former chief Mark Davis, who’s now the Hardin County sheriff.

The Silsbee Bee reached out to Chief Rhodes through phone calls and email, but he never responded. He did go on the record with the Temple Daily Telegram, however.
