When a community suffers a natural disaster, sometimes it’s the little things that help residents return to normal, like being able to check out books at the library.

After Hurricane Harvey, officials found mold growing inside Central High School buildings, as previously reported by The Examiner.

Freshman still meet on the campus in buildings that weren’t affected. Tenth through 12th-grade students are meeting at the building that used to be Stephen F. Austin Middle School, according to BISD spokesperson Nakisha Burns.

While she says it isn’t set in stone – at least not for another month or so – former Beaumont ISD attorney Melody Chappell has tentatively announced intentions to run for the elected office that will be left vacant as Jefferson County 172nd District Court Judge Donald Floyd retires at the end of his current term.

It was business as usual. No long good-byes. No bidding adieu with endless platitudes.

“With great sorrow,” Manager Joe Domino moved to accept the three members’ resignation – and that was that.
