Earlier this month, the Beaumont Bulls youth football team kneeled in protest during the national anthem, following the lead of NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

The 11- and 12-year-old boys first kneeled during a game on Sept. 10, prompting death threats on KFDM’s Facebook page and other social media sites.


Bad weather in Beaumont caused quite a stir Thursday, January 21, especially in the shopping centers near the Dowlen Rd. and Folsom Drive intersection, where customers and merchants witnessed shopping carts rolling across the parking lot into parked cars, benches moving, and could hear the more than 50 mph winds roaring. The M from Madison's bar flew off and shattered and Bed Bath and Beyond saw substantial damage to the left side of its front entrance.
