BY George Garza

Although speed is desired in the replacement of Vidor’s flood damaged Oak Forest Elementary School, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jay Killgo said that care must be taken to insure that the taxpayers get the most bang for the federal bucks being reimbursed to the V.I.S.D. for replacing that school.

Texas DPS to watch drivers around buses

BY George Garza

Don’t be surprised this week, if you see a black and white Texas Department of Public Safety patrol car following your neighborhood V.I.S.D. school bus as it winds it way down your street. And beware, if you see a school bus stopping to take on students or discharge students on wide highways such as North Main Street or Highway 12 for the next few days, there may be a TX DPS trooper aboard that bus watching on-coming drivers to insure they stop for the flashing red lights of the school bus.

By Joy Graham

Just when we were feeling a little down that the Golden Triangle 2018 racing season had drawn to a close, the track has been leased for this weekend by Theresa and Randy Waller for a spectacular two day event. For fifteen years the last race of the season for the Waller crew was the renowned Halloween Havoc which was held at Gator Motorplex. That track is no longer in exsistence. However, through popular demand, by drivers, sponsors and fans, the tradition will continue.

Classes furnishing the unending thrills and spills at the Havoc are: Southern United Sprints, Outlaw Street Stock, IMCA Modifieds, Limited Modifieds, Power 600 Mini Sprints and Factory Stock
