An ominous black plume of smoke emanating from the TPC Group chemical plant explosions and fire in Port Neches was clearly visible from North Main Street in Vidor on Wednesday afternoon. The smoke plume from the burning plant stayed mostly away from Vidor as the plant continued to burn for the next six days.

A massive explosion in a processing unit at a Port Neches chemical plant was heard and felt in Vidor, nearly thirteen miles away from the location of the blast near the intersection of F.M. 366 and Spur 136, in Port Neches last Wednesday morning.

Four crooks visit Vidor and leave

A car full of burglary suspects was abandoned by the alleged crooks on North Tram Road when Houston Police Department detectives, who had been following the four men eastbound on I-10, lost track of the vehicle when the crooks pulled off the freeway in Vidor early evening on Tuesday of last week. According to Vidor Police Chief Rod Carroll, the men apparently ran into the woods in the 1800 block of North Tram after they realized they had been spotted by law enforcement.

Black Friday should remind us of Blue Santa

Article Image Alt Text

As Blue Santa finishes up his Turkey day feast, he wants to remind all Vidorians to remember the young children of Vidor as they shop for gifts on Black Friday of this week. Blue Santa said, “As long as you are hunting for bargains this weekend, don’t forget “Operation Blue Santa as you shop.”

The Holiday Season has come upon us so quickly this year. So many of us have so busy trying to recover from Tropical Storm Imelda, it’s like Thanksgiving has just snuck up on us, all of a sudden.

A complete Thanksgiving feast, ready-to-prepare, is loaded in the hatchback of a Vidor citizen in need completely for free on Monday morning of this week. Brittany Lewis, shown here, loading a Thanksgiving Food Basket, was one of a number of United Christian Care Center of Vidor volunteers helping with the charitable donation. 168 families received a frozen turkey or hen and all of the traditional Thanksgiving meal food items.

While we settle back for an afternoon of Thanksgiving Day football games with full stomach and perhaps a slice of pumpkin pie, there are some among us that are struggling just to put a nourishing meal on the table for their family this Thanksgiving. And this year in Vidor, with so many people struggling to recover from the ravages of Tropical Storm Imelda, the need for help this holiday is even greater.
