Q. I rent a small house. I have made all my payments on time; my lease has one more year until it ends. My landlord told me the house was being foreclosed this month and I will have to move. This doesn’t seem fair. How soon do I have to leave?

A. A foreclosure terminates your relationship with your landlord pursuant to the laws of the state of Texas. This means that your lease is terminated at the time of foreclosure. (The only exception is Section 8 leases, which may remain in force.)

Last Saturday’s teal season opener was about the best many hunters had seen in years. Based on field reports that I’ve heard, lots of teal began showing up about a week prior to the opener on flooded crawfish ponds and rice fields west of Beaumont and on over toward Winnie.

Kenney Vaughan and his kids hunted on a flooded field near China for the opener, and they had plenty of birds coming to the decoys.
