“Welcome to Crustaceans Boil House. What can we get for ya?” These words are what you hear as you enter the building of an unassuming Chevron Gas Station. The reason is that the gas station shares its space with a restaurant that’s is changing how seafood is served. 

Aldrick Henry aimed to open a restaurant that was a little different from anything around Beaumont — a pick your crustacean and sauce concept — and he did just that.

“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.” — Kahlil Gibran

I have news for all of us. God doesn’t expect or desire us to all be just alike. He made us to be individuals, to be different, so that we can all put our piece of the puzzle in the right place for the greater good of all.

Memorials, objects that serve to remind of a person or event, have been erected for various people, occasions and organizations from the Haymarket Martyr Memorial to the National September 11th Memorial & Museum. Memorials serve a much-needed function for citizens to remember and, therefore, live with a greater passion. The Big Thicket is now host to one of these remembrances thanks to Joshua Davis, West Brook freshman.
