A town hall meeting Saturday, March 23, at the American Legion Post 49 on Green Avenue was intended by organizers to be a meeting presenting both sides of the controversy over a proposed memorial that would display more than 20 Confederate flags including the infamous battle flag and would be visible from Interstate 10. It turned into a very one-sided affair, however, when no one from the organization Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) showed up to speak their piece.

The cold front that came in last Sunday was nothing more than stumbling block for anglers in the hunt for trophy trout on Sabine Lake. The cold weather came in Sunday, and by Wednesday it was back to spring time, warm temperatures and warming tides along the upper Texas coast.

From now through the end of April, big trout will be roaming the shallows of both Sabine Lake and East Galveston Bay. Ditto that for the east shoreline of Trinity Bay.
