Temptations and the Four Tops

If I want to indulge in some Christmas treats, I’d prefer the real thing over this treacle. It’s like having high fructose corn syrup via an IV. Unpleasant, and, definitely not good for you. This movie shamelessly tugs at your heart, something it has no business doing, even if Will Smith is trying for an Oscar nomination — again. So, fair warning: I’m about to go all Ebenezer Scrooge on this one.

Music fanatics in Southeast Texas are very familiar with nationally known spin guru Dee Jay Silver. In fact, Silver cut his teeth in Beaumont by spinning music to thousands of those who came to dance at the Dixie Dance Hall on Crockett Street.

Now, Silver has moved up in the DJ scene with residencies in Las Vegas playing such hotspots as LAX in the Luxor and Rehab Pool Party at Hard Rock Hotel, while becoming the first artist in his realm to sign to a major Nashville record label contract with RCA Nashville/Sony Music.

It’s been quite a while since Southeast Texas has had a zoo to call its own. From the 1920s to the ’70s, Beaumont had a small zoo at Magnolia Park that included bears and lions and much more —about 150 animals at its peak in the 1950s, according to local news archives. These animals were relocated to San Antonio in 1970, and it wasn’t until 2013 that Southeast Texas saw another zoo.
