Pirates have busy week in basketball

The Vidor Pirates have packed a lot of games into the last week with an away game in Bridge City Tuesday, a subvarsity tournament in Bridge City Thursday-Saturday and a home game against LCM that was moved from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon to accommodate LCM’s football playoff game.

Playing in Bridge City last Tuesday, the Pirate varsity team beat Bridge City 52-41.

“It was a back and forth game for three quarters and then we played really well in the fourth again,” said Head Boys Basketball Coach Nate Smith. “We won the fourth quarter 19-11. We are getting better, we just need to play more consistent throughout the whole game.”

Law enforcement: Travel safely this holiday

The Thanksgiving holiday travel period from Wednesday through Sunday of Thanksgiving week is traditionally one of the busiest highway travel periods of the year in the U.S. That’s even truer for Texas highways because Texans think nothing of traveling five or six hours one-way just to get to grandma’s house to eat her turkey and dressing.

However it’s not just sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce that prompts us to hit the road for Thanksgiving, it’s really about being with your loved ones and giving thanks, together, for all the blessings you have received.

If you want to make sure that the people you love arrive at your table safely, urge them not to drive impaired by alcohol or drugs this Thanksgiving holiday.

Give thanks, but remember others during holiday season

“Blue Santa” wants YOU to help the Vidor Police Officers to remember to pick up a new toy for a Vidor area child between the ages of newborn to age 13 for their Operation Blue Santa

Toys for Tots

Christmas Toy Collection Drive this week.

It seems like the Thanksgiving Holiday has rushed up on us suddenly. Wasn’t it just last week that we were worried about having a supply of candy for Trick or Treaters? Of course, some of you, who are more organized, perhaps, are rushing to prepare for turkey day visits to family and friends. Thanksgiving is a time of family and togetherness as well as football and feasting. So take some time to enjoy your family tomorrow before the shopping madness begins.

The day after tomorrow is Black Friday, a day of massive sales, unbridled purchasing and, some say, retail madness.

Last week the Board of Trustees of the Vidor Independent School District held a public meeting about the possibility of the Vidor I.S.D. becoming a “District of Innovation”. Superintendent Dr. Jay Killgo presented to the public present at the school board meeting an overview of Texas House Bill 1842, the legislation that enables the Texas Education Code rules that authorizes the Districts of Innovation Regulations.

The District of Innovation concept, passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842, gives traditional independent school districts many of the flexibilities available to Texas’ open-enrollment charter schools.
