Extreme Machine brings out Crosby

David Milam accepts the First Place Muscle Car Award from Pastor Keenan Smith of Crosby Church as entertainer/singer Eddie Foster announces. See car photo on page 3. This is his first time winning this award at this venue. Muscle Cars are especially prized at Extreme Machine in that they are both classic and fast running. In total, thirty trophies were awarded.

CROSBY – A church event last weekend brought the COVID19 fatigued community out to celebrate cars, trucks, and entertain the kids.

In its twelfth year, this special event features the Extreme Auto Show, and Craft Show with concessions, a local fire truck or two and a petting zoo at Crosby Church.

The Auto Show drew 85 classic and show quality vehicles from a local area of attraction and multiple categories of entries.

Panel to study name for Lee High School

BAYTOWN – A committee to look into the name of Goose Creek Consolidated ISD facilities will be formed according to specifications laid out by certain administrators at the school trustee meeting last week.

Robert E. Lee High School is obviously named for the general that swore he wished he had never participated in the American Civil War in retirement with his property confiscated, under house arrest for treason and having witnessed the deaths of most of his best friends and students. But that little bit of history is often forgotten in the current sensitivity to the Confederacy and horror of the great American sin of slavery.

The committee was given directives by members of the administration in deciding if names will remain as they are or be changed. “This committee is tasked with reviewing data and providing input to the school board concerning potential facility name changes.” stated Matt Bolinger.

Bolinger and others asked the committee to investigate how much a change will cost, which facility will be renamed, how did the school get its name, why and if a renaming would be needed, when would renaming be optimal, and how such renaming impacts students.
