UPDATE:

In the event of major thunderstorms and lightning impacting the Run/Walk at 8:00 a.m. this Saturday, regretfully, we will be forced to cancel the first phase of the event.
 


However, we will continue inside with the remainder of our celebratory festivities and open the Beaumont Civic Center at 9:30 a.m. for fabulous rhythm and blues singer Yvonne Washington and her band, prior to the bedazzling Richard Simmons show and picnic lunch, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

One of the best Po’boys in Southeast Texas can be found in one of the most unlikely of places.

If you can be in Houston on Saturday, Sept. 29, take time to learn much more about the law. During the past 25 years, more than 50,000 people have learned about their legal rights and liabilities at a session of “The People’s Law School.” The largest and oldest program of its kind in the country, the People’s Law School is deigned to give you valuable information about the law that you can use to help avoid and resolve disputes. Best of all, it is absolutely free.

Every fall, industry releases its new “year” of models; we see new cars, new appliances — and new security software. Many (but not all) PC, Mac and smart device security software publishers typically allow the user of a 2012 version to upgrade to the 2013 version, often at no charge, for the balance of the original license period.

As we move into the latter days of September and with both dove and teal seasons going full swing, it is also time for some great fishing. Both freshwater and saltwater action will begin an upward trend only to peak in late October or early November. Those anglers that do their thing in late September get in on the fall action before those who wait. With the water becoming a few degrees cooler, there will be some of the best topwater action since the early springtime. This is the case on both the freshwater and saltwater scenes.
