The High Street Gallery will host an exhibition of drawings by Sheila Busceme on Friday, April 29, from 7-10 p.m. at the Victoria Houston, 2110 Victoria St., Beaumont.

“If I were to describe it, the closest descriptive word I could come up with would be ‘eclectic,’” said Busceme, a self-taught artist from Beaumont. “I love to explore different media. Some methods stay with me; some do not. As of now, I work in colored pencil, wax pastel, oil pastel, acrylics and sometimes watercolor.”

The boat ramp problem on Keith Lake has finally been solved, thanks to a million-dollar project that allows boats of all sizes easy access to some of the best fishing in Southeast Texas. The new ramps are at the Keith Lake Fish Pass on Highway 87. This ramp is a Jefferson County public recreation site project. Funding assistance came from a portion of state sales tax on sporting goods through the local park grant program administered by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The state of Texas contributed $500,000, and the city, county and district paid $500,000.
