Texas adds 256,100 jobs in past year

AUSTIN ⎯ Texas added an estimated 256,100 seasonally adjusted jobs over the past year. There were overall job decreases of 7,300 in September, due largely to effects from Hurricane Harvey. Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 4.0 percent, down from 4.2 percent in August and remained below the national rate of 4.2 percent. Annual employment growth for Texas was 2.1 percent.

“Hurricane Harvey impacted overall job numbers in September, but the dynamic Texas economy has created jobs in 10 of 11 industries over the year,” said Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) Chairman Andres Alcantar. “TWC remains focused on building and deploying all partnerships necessary to support the rebuilding of our communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey and to put our fellow Texans back to work.”

Lumberton landmark Adventure Kingdom closes

By Tim Collins

LUMBERTON — “THANK YOU FOR TEN YEARS — MARLON & TIFFANY” flashes on the digital marquee at the entrance to Adventure Kingdom, a Lumberton landmark and popular party spot. After sustaining damage due to Tropical Storm Harvey’s floodwaters, the location is closing after ten years and selling off all its equipment, including swan boats, lawn chairs, bumper cars and office furniture.

During Harvey, the part of U.S. 96 between Lumberton and Beaumont was a lake, effectively turning Lumberton, Silsbee, and several other towns in the Beaumont metropolitan area into islands. Adventure Kingdom was caught in the flood.
