2017 Encore

Introduced in 2013, the Encore quickly carved out a niche of its own and rose to the top of the fast-growing small SUV market, topping it in 2014 and 2015. Encore was Buick’s best-selling vehicle in North America in 2015, accounting for nearly a third of overall sales. Its sales were up 34 percent for the first two months of 2016, extending a year-over-year sales increase streak to 26 months.

For 2017, a new front-end appearance and a new premium interior highlight the visual refinements.

Murphree Wildlife Management Area in Port Arthur. Coastal hunts in the marsh were fair, and guide Colby Denbow reports that his hunts between Beaumont and Winnie were pretty good overall.

And while you might not know the name Novelisto, you’ve almost certainly seen his work in films like “Winter’s Tale” and the upcoming “Helen of Troy.” He didn’t have speaking roles, but there’s no denying the star qualities of this humble performer who keeps all four feet firmly planted on the ground.
