Cooking chili in Terlingua, a Texas tradition

By Bartee Haile

It took three days to clean the pots, haul away the mountain of beer cans and sober up the last of the revelers, but by Oct. 24, 1967 everything was back to normal in the Big Bend ghost town.

The Terlingua Chili Cook-Off had been a rousing success, but no one thought at the time that they had started an annual shindig that would become a Texas tradition.

Out of playoff picture, Pirates now in spoiler role

By Randall Luker

With four district losses and only three games to play, the Vidor Pirates are out of the 2018 playoff picture, but they can still play the role of spoiler as they face the undefeated Nederland Bulldogs Friday in Pirate Stadium.

The Pirates began the year 3-0 and have given their district opponents all they could handle with most games coming down to the final minutes before the winning team was determined. Vidor’s losses have come against the undefeated in district Port Neches Groves Indians, 3-1 Santa Fe Indians, 3-1 Barbers Hill Eagles, and the 2-2 Crosby Cougars, a game which went into triple overtime. A somewhat banged up Pirate team hopes to hang an “L” on the Bulldogs this Friday.
