Plenty of teams from Southeast Texas are still playing in the second round of the playoffs as Bridge City (3A) with a record of 24-3-1 will play Sweeny (18-9) in a best-of-3 series beginning Friday, May, 9 at Baytown Sterling High School at 7:30 p.m. Games 2-3 will be played at the same field on Saturday at 1 p.m.
Kyle Petty has achieved much in his 30-year career on the NASCAR circuit including eight wins and being twice named the NASCAR Illustrated Person of the Year. Despite the big success, Petty also has a big heart, and now Southeast Texas can see the generosity up close and personal as the 20thanniversary Kyle Petty Charity Ride makes a stop in Beaumont on Wednesday, May 7.
The Kyle Petty Charity Ride will be at the Hampton Inn at 3795 I-10 S. at 4:15 p.m.
While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth. We’re of the opinion that headlines and sound bites never tell the whole story. Our readers demand all the facts, facets and flavors of every story or event. And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
