The three amigos of mayhem are together again, and it’s a second verse same as the first scenario with the same kind of ribald, adult humor that brought attention to the 2011 opener — and not in a good way.

I recently received a frantic phone call from a distraught individual. He had a fairly new Windows 7-64 desktop PC not covered by warranty, and it would not properly boot up. It would briefly show that manufacturer’s splash screen, and then nothing else; the screen was black. After a period of time, the power saving feature appeared on the otherwise black screen and stated that the computer was going into hibernate mode. Nothing could bring the computer back to life; a full repeat of the “power on” cycle only produced a repetitive black screen and shutdown.

I just recently finished a judging “blitz” of several local contests and had some darn fine examples of competition style barbecue with only a few that were below par. I wanted to give a little love to the folks at the Winnie Rice Festival for really putting on a fine event and treating the judges well and making sure everyone had a great time. If you ever get the opportunity or have the desire to go judge a contest, the Rice Festival is a great place to start.

Jerry Nelson might be known as “Nutty” to some, but his vision to bring excitement as well as entertainment to Southeast Texas is clear, and his newest venture in Beaumont will definitely bring a breath of fresh air to a scene that needs something new and different.

When Cardinal football was reintroduced in 2010, there was an excitement on campus that hadn’t been felt in a long time. It was a welcome return following two decades without a sport that Southeast Texans eat, sleep and breathe. Now that Big Red pride is back in full force, Lamar University reintroduces another tradition dating back more than half a century — the Homecoming Parade.
