Water main break at 11th Street

After at least three days of on-and-off rain, a major water line in Beaumont gave way, temporarily muddying resident’s drinking water in Old Town and surrounding areas. 

At about 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 17, city crews were called to an 8-inch water main break on 11th Street near Gladys.

The L.L. Melton Family Life Center, formerly the L.L. Melton YMCA, is one step closer to a complete retrofit that would keep the center open after City Council members approved a lease agreement with benefactor Dr. Donna Farrell on Tuesday, July 9.

Jimmy Simmons Boulevard officially became part of the Lamar University landscape Friday, March 1, 2013, with the unveiling of street signs and a tribute to Simmons and his wife, Susan, in the historic McDonald Gym.

The Pep Band and national-champion Cheerleading Team added Cardinal Spirit to the occasion, while two rows of Simmons children and grandchildren – including three new grandchildren in strollers – brought proud introductions from the stage.
