DO YOU EVER WONDER what to do with old prescriptions that are cluttering up your medicine cabinet? Don’t throw them in the trash or flush them down the toilet!

Improperly disposed prescriptions can be a health hazard and keeping certain prescriptions around may tempt others to steal them to abuse. Get rid of these items the responsible way at the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

Visit Kilgore Walmart Supercenter on Oct. 24 at 10 a.m. to safely hand over old medications. Visit to learn more.


BIG THINGS ARE COMING! At Monday’s board meeting, Kilgore College trustees reviewed potential ideas for the replacement of the pedestrian bridge over Highway 259 at the KC campus.

The bridge, which had stood for four decades and become a Kilgore landmark, was demolished last year after an impact by a passing truck rendered the structure unsafe for pedestrian use.

Trustees reviewed several design proposals for potential bridge replacements at the meeting. While the process is still in the very early preliminary planning stages, we here at KNH will bring you updates as soon as they are made available on this plan.

We know many of our readers are anxious to learn more, so watch our print edition and social media pages in the coming weeks for more info.


SORRY TO ANNOUNCE that Kilgore is canceling its National Night Out this year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Kilgore Police Department announced the news on its Facebook page on Tuesday, stating that there were concerns expressed due to COVID, and that they hope to bring the effort back next year, bigger and better than ever.

National Night Out is an effort to bring neighbors closer together, to curb criminal activities in their neighborhoods.


A VERY HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS to Meaghan Simpson, who has now been named the new Artistic Director for Texas Shakespeare Festival.

Festival founder and creator Raymond Caldwell, who led the festival for 35 years, announced his retirement this year and Simpson, who has worked alongside Caldwell as both an actor and associate artistic director, was the perfect choice to take the helm.

Kilgore is proud of you, Meaghan, and we can’t wait to see what wonderful things you will bring to the festival in the future.
