I have not abandoned writing about freshwater fishing. Normally by mid-summer, the saltwater action has taken precedence. That doesn’t mean that the sweetwater action has ceased. According to Rayburn professional guide Will Kirkpatrick, the topwater action is really good. The secret is to be on the water when first light appears in the east.

My name is “Spot.” I am a 1-year-old female akita/shepherd mix. I weigh 67 pounds. I came to the shelter as a stray, and no one has claimed me. I am good with other dogs. I am a working dog and will need lots of exercise. My looks are a little intimidating, but my personality will melt your heart. Apartment living is not for me; I love the great outdoors with a big fenced-in yard with lots of toys. Please come and give me a good home.

Grand Theft Auto (GTA) has got it all – wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony. If you want your child to learn the seven deadly sins first hand, this game is full of teachable moments.

I’d heard the game was “bad” and “not good for children,” but upon personal research and review, I’d label it indecent for even creator Rockstar Games’ intended market, 18 year olds. Call me prudish, but hear me out.

Downtown get around … Beaumont Main Street hosted Recreate recently with creative duo Grace Mathis and Lorena Head co-chairing this innovative fundraiser. This fun-filled event combined all art mediums — music, fashion and visual art. Guests noshed on tasty bites and sipped ice-cold beer and wine as they took in all the happenings in and around the historic Fire Museum of Texas.
