Writing recently about what our faces say about us led me to another topic. My daughter DeAnna, who works for an airline, has always been funny by nature. She could be a standup comedian if she wanted.

One I will never forget occurred at Jack Brooks Regional in Beaumont.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson stars in Skyscraper

Halfway through the summer movie season, there are clear winners and losers at the box office and with critics. Superheroes and dinosaurs are at the top, but there, is a plethora of movies that have underperformed in what is already a season that has offered less to movie fans.

Jet ski racers compete in what has been called 'motocross on water'

The Sabine River in Orange has been a very busy body of water, from recent Bassmaster fishing tournaments to thundering tunnel boat racing. Now for the first time, the waterway will see a “Rumble on the River” as TxH20 Racing presents jet ski racing Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, at the Orange Boat Ramp (408 Pier Road).

“This is something new that everyone will enjoy,” said Brandy Judice, Orange CVB coordinator. “There will be no charge to attend this family-friendly event. Concessions and kids activities onsite will also be available.”
