Liberty City-area residents will get a chance to vote on a sales tax rate increase this fall. A unanimous vote to put the measure on the ballot was recorded at a meeting of the Gregg County Emergency Services District No. 2 board on Tuesday. Held in the auditorium of Sabine High School, the meeting allowed members of the public to comment on the proposed measure, which would add 1.5 cents to the sales tax rate within ESD No. 2.
When the storm hit Kilgore on March 14, emergency responders were working to free people trapped in their houses before the sun came up. Maebeth Avant woke up that morning to find her house on Dudley Road unharmed but several huge trees had fallen all around her house. “I’d like to give God credit because when the storm came and all of this exploded, I slept right through it. I didn’t even know until I woke up the next morning,” Avant said.
LONGVIEW – The Sabine High School soccer playoff foundation officially begins in 2019. Coach Luke Strong’s Cardinals, just a handful of years in existence, have climbed the ladder quickly, and have qualified for the University Interscholastic League (UIL) playoffs, earning a second-place finish in District 16-4A with a 4-1 win over Spring Hill here at Panther Stadium on Tuesday night.
For an hour after school, Kilgore kids are getting fit, learning discipline and being steered onto the right path in life. About 20 KISD students meet in a converted warehouse space on Harris Street Monday through Friday from 4 to 5 p.m. to practice squats, push-ups and other exercises at the Ignition Station. Hannah Beets, physical education teacher at Chandler Elementary, got the idea to combine the workouts from her CrossFit class with her passion to work with kids and help them excel mentally and physically.
