War has come to my yard! But this battle doesn’t involve modern conventional weapons with individual rounds of ammunition that cost almost as much as my eldest and most expensive daughter’s wardrobe. Instead, this is a battle against one of the most annoying forces of nature known to man–the scourge of autumn leaves.
The third annual Reel East Texas Film Festival is underway this week with several days of film screenings, events and awards. Filmmakers from across the state and the country are descending on Kilgore to screen their films, answer audience questions and network with other filmmakers.
Twenty years after Kilgore was caught up in a storm of controversy surrounding a college play featuring gay characters, Kilgore College's theater department will present “The Laramie Project”, a play based on a town’s reaction to the 1998 murder of gay Wyoming college student Matthew Shephard.
He stepped up to the podium on stage in the fellowship hall of First Baptist Church in Kilgore with a slide presentation well-prepared to capture the attention of a large crowd of listeners. The 1961 KHS graduate began to talk about a subject dear to his heart and one he had approached before only this time his presentation began with Bible verses and the importance of God’s presence at NASA.

Kilgore Main Street is once again inviting visitors to ‘Shop Small, Win Big’ by supporting downtown businesses, and the effort’s even bigger in its second year.
They’re some of downtown Kilgore’s biggest fans, regular attendees and participants in events during the past several years. Vivian and Fred Gebhardt have been angling to put down roots in the Main Street District for a couple of years, but it was a matter of finding the right fit.
Kilgore College Theatre is proud to present “The Laramie Project” beginning Thursday, Nov. 14, in Van Cliburn Auditorium on the Kilgore campus.
There is a reason the Liberty City community was once known as Hog Eye Country, and as of late the name has been revived as the area once again is being inundated with wild hogs.
Local parade-planners are putting their organizational skills to the test once again as they recruit entries for events in Kilgore and Liberty City. At Kilgore Chamber of Commerce, there’s a little more than a month until the 89th annual Kilgore Christmas Parade rolls out at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3. In the Sabine area, firefighters are getting prepped to get moving at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8.
Now that America is deep into the bowels of football season, I’m experiencing my yearly gastrointestinal angst about my Texas A&M Aggies.
