There was a Western Auto at the East end of Port Neches Ave.  Remember back in the 70's maybe there was a house behind Western Auto where an image of Jesus appeared on a screen door.  There was actually traffic jams in downtown PN from people coming to view Jesus.

O, yes. Now I remember that. My mother still has some Polaroid shots of that image in a photo album

Yep.  I saw the screen door that had the image but I was a young kid and wasn't quite sure about what I was seeing.  I remember that the grass was completely gone after all the crowds had trampled it.

The Western Auto building is still there.  I also remember my parents buying carpet from Buddy Porter's store that was downtown.  Man I miss the old days when times were so simple yet complete.  :old:

Ya know, now that you mention it, I seem to remember that carpet store too.  And I used to live across the street from the Neches Theater, and Gordon Chevrolet.  There was also "Caraway's", the night club/bar.  And my house was right down the street from the Souther Union Gas co., and I delivered papers for the free local paper,  the "Shopper's Guide" (we couldn't throw it either, we had to hand deliver it to the front door).  And of course Walter's Hardware....If he didn't have it,  you didn't need it!
Go Indians!!!

Been wondering the same thing.  Now that those seasons are getting started, It'll probably have to wait until summer at the earliest.

Are they still part of the plans?  I've heard NOTHING about the other improvements,  only the stadium.

The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

I noticed that. From what I was told, they're going to move the tennis courts north a little ways. I've also been told that the school district has received a waiver on one of the retention ponds.

Is the construction still on schedule? I know that several of the teachers aren't sure that they're going to be in their new rooms by the end of December like they were told.

Now this is not good.  The concrete for the second floor was done in 3 separate pours.
Oh oh ! ! !   This could only mean that one of the pours did not pass core testing.  That would
mean they are having to jack hammer out the bad pour.

Work on the Baseball complex is progressing......concrete is poured.

A pic looking toward the baseball field.


A wide view of the concrete pour.


What a cool contraption.....this used to be back breaking work.


Nice to see progress on the baseball complex.
