Sulphur Bluff Independent School District Board of Trustees named Dustin Carr the lone finalist for superintendent Thursday, Nov. 20.
Saddle Up and Ride for St. Jude was a huge success, with $28,000 collected at the annual event held Nov. 9 at the Two J Ranch in Como. The auction itself raised about $10,000 to go toward the donation to the research hospital for children.
East Texas is gearing up for a month of concerts for the holiday season. Here is a list of major stars and local talent that will be gracing the area the next few weeks:
“It will probably be a blend of songs that will appear on my new record, songs that appeared on my debut album ‘Child of Calamity,’ some brand new ones I just wrote and definitely a few from the archives that some of my hometown friends will know,” said Brown.
Tickets are available for $10 in advance or $15 at the door at City Hall, located at 201 North Davis St. in downtown Sulphur Springs. For more information go to crossroadsmusiccompany.com/store or call 903-342-1854.
“The holidays are my favorite time of year. These shows aren’t just a straight up concert, they’re bigger and more exciting with a 12 piece ensemble,” said Adkins.
Ticket prices are $44, $59 and $69 and may be purchased at the box office, showtimeatthegma.com or by calling 877-987-6487.
One of the highlights of the evening will be the rendition of “Christmas Dreams.” Allen said the piece is not only musically complex but will bring a tear to the eye of everyone in the audience.
“If there is one song that deeply describes Christmas, it would be that song,” Allen said. “If you paid your $10 and came to concert and only heard that one song, you would walk out the door and say you spent the best $10 all Christmas season.”
The concert will be Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. in the Civic Center. Tickets are $10 in advance for adults and $5 for children or $12 dollars at the door with a special $25 dollar family price. For $25, the family package includes two adult tickets and four children tickets. Allen encouraged everyone to bring as many children as they could for the performances.
Sulphur Bluff FFA Chapter is planning a full slate of activities Nov. 22 at the school, with a show clinic in the morning and a chili cook-off and feast that afternoon.
