beaumontenterprise.com / Tue, 9 Jan 2018 23:13:08 UT

Parkdale Mall's owner has submitted plans to the city of Beaumont proposing four stores to fill more than 100,00 square feet of empty retail space this coming year. The plans, which are still under review by city officials, call for the "partial alteration" of the former Macy's and two adjacent storefronts, as well as a 28,959 square foot addition. HomeGoods and Five Below are listed as intended tenants for the addition and the former Ashley HomeStore space. The furniture store moved to a free-standing location at the corner of Dowlen and Folsom last year. A combination Dick's Sporting Goods and Field & Stream store will be built in the Macy's space, according to the plans.

Local districts could use holidays, Saturdays to make up lost time
beaumontenterprise.com / Sun, 21 Jan 2018 13:41:19 UT
Holidays, afternoons, weekends and vacation time could be wiped from school calendars this spring as Southeast Texas districts scramble to make up for lost time after flooding, snow and most recently ice took away days in the classroom. Local schools were closed for at least two weeks in August and September after Tropical Storm Harvey hit. Althought the Texas Education Agency approved waivers for some missed days, districts had to find a way to make up some of the lost minutes. Now, facing two more missed days last week from a cold front that left roads icy and burst pipes, districts are looking for ways to get back even more time, all while the state's high-stakes standardized tests loom this spring.

beaumontenterprise.com / Sun, 23 Nov 2014 10:00:00 UT
After the Smith homecoming football game at Babe Zaharias Stadium on Oct. 28, Wilbert Andrews Jr., the principal, followed the drill team bus back to the middle school because of an altercation between several parents, according to the police report of the incident. According to Andrews, Williams started to walk away from Andrews but turned back and pointed his finger at Andrews, who took a step backward, according to Carr's statement. There are many women who stay and wait with their students because it's our job to do so, and we are capable of performing our job duties. Williams returned to his truck, and Carr asked whether there was a way to settle the dispute without filing a police report because "BISD does not need anything in the media that is not positive," she wrote in her statement.
