It wasn’t how they wanted to finish the season – winning would’ve been much more preferable – but the Kilgore High School boys basketball team is about to join the school’s girls in the University Interscholastic League’s Class 4A playoffs. The Bulldogs lost their final regular season game Tuesday night at home, a 51-49 loss to a Henderson team that Kilgore had beaten earlier this year. more
Basketball success is certainly nothing new in Liberty City – Sabine has had several good teams, boys and girls, over the years. But cutting down the nets this year was pretty special for coach Colby Carr and the Cardinals. more
It’s been said it’s good to be the king. It’s also apparently pretty good to be the queen. Both Kilgore High School soccer programs – girls and boys – opened their respective District 16-4A schedules here at R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium with wins over Sabine on Tuesday night. Kilgore’s teams have won district championships in both so often the last decade, it’s difficult to remember when a KHS team didn’t hoist the crown. more
SOFTBALL Kilgore College home today at noon vs. McLennan Rain toyed a little with Kilgore College’s early-season softball schedule last week, forcing the cancelation of a pair of games at Texas College. But the Rangers were to be swinging again today, this time at home at the Ballpark at KC Commons, a doubleheader against McLennan starting at noon. KC split with McLennan the first week of the season and the Rangers, coached by Leslie Messina, are 1-1. After today, they’re scheduled to play at Grayson County College in Denison on Wednesday, a doubleheader starting at 1, and then at Weatherford next Saturday, also a doubleheader and also starting at 1. more
Undeterred by frigid weather, a group of high schoolers from Kilgore and Sabine dove head-first into the challenges of the Rotary Youth Leadership Award this month. Heading out on the weekend excursion, Rotarian Tom Sartor said, the teens are usually pretty quiet, unsure of what lies ahead. “Coming back, they talk all the way,” swapping stories about the experience. more
It was called Bob’s Gulf Station back in the day, as the old-timers would say. It was a full service station which meant more complete costumer service – get the windshields washed, an engine checked if needed, tires checked and fuel. Bob’s was located in Kilgore on Hwy 259 N. where Mr. Bubbles Laundromat and Car Wash now sits. There were several things that made this particular station unique. First and foremost was the owner, Luther Terry, who was a fireman for 30 years, kept up the gas station and owned a hot-shot service. more
Before I left home this morning, I gave myself one final mirror-check, just to be sure the belt buckle was centered, hat properly canted and collar correctly not-popped. There I stood: penny loafers, almost-white socks and blue jeans. Had the socks been whiter and a bit bulkier, I’d have been dressed pretty much as I most likely dressed on my last day of high school. Were it not for the belly, from the neck down I looked pretty much like the boys in the Class of 1969. more
If you’re going to achieve your important financial goals, you’ll need to build an appropriate investment portfolio. But that’s only part of the story – because you also need to protect what you have, what you earn and what you’d like to leave behind. That’s why it’s a good idea to become familiar with the various types of insurance and how they can address short- and long-term needs. more
When leaving my mom’s home recently, I drove by a church in her community whose sign listed both “traditional” and “casual” worship services. Struck by what I thought an unusual contrast (“casual” instead of “contemporary”, for example), as I drove home I reflected on the words’ etymologies. more
