Geriatric prisoners


Photos by Mark M. Hancock / © The Beaumont Enterprise

Elderly, handicapped prisoners are separated from the general population but remain within the Estelle Unit compound of the Texas State Prison System in Huntsville on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2006. As the prison population ages, the prison system must care for additional needs of elderly prisoners.

Habari Gani


Gail Pellum dreds the hair of Teddy Hall of Beaumont in Pellum's FEMA trailer in Port Arthur on Thursday, December 21, 2006. Pellum gives books about African-American heritage to children as part of her Kwanzaa tradition. In the foreground is a hand-carved statue from Ghana of a Sankofa bird. The symbolism of the bird is to know the past to build for the future.

Today marks the beginning of Kwanzaa. The annual African-American heritage celebration, which started in 1966, takes place from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1. Please read more about the celebration on Wikipedia.

Homeless no more Part B

This is a happy continuation of Billy Woolverton's life from being homeless in Portland, Maine to finding a family he didn't know existed in Silsbee, Texas. After his half-sister found him and invited him home, she wanted to locate Billy's full sister to reunite the entire family. They found Julia Sue Wade outside Fort Worth. Wade traveled to Silsbee to meet her brother. Although siblings, they were told they were cousins during their youth. The following is their reunion.


Billy Woolverton smiles at the antics of his siblings at his mother's home in Silsbee on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2006.

Shanna Adams laughs with her siblings at her mother's home in Silsbee. After Billy Woolverton was homeless more than three decades, Adams located him in Portland, Maine. Since then, she located her sister Julia Sue Hare through a media tip, which lead to the first family reunion of the three siblings.



Shanna Adams (left) and her mother Margie Sue Moore eagerly look at the previously unknown children of Sue Hare's family (Moore's grandchildren).


Sue Hare laughs during a reunion with her brother at their mother's home in Silsbee. The family plans to meet with the other two family siblings and their families in the DFW Metroplex later this month.

Sisters Shanna Adams (left to right) and Sue Hare tease their brother, Billy Woolverton (right), in their mother's FEMA trailer in Silsbee.


Sue Hare (left) teases her brother, Billy Woolverton, about his three decades of homelessness at their mother's home.

The entire family, including Moore's other two children and all the grandchildren are scheduled to meet around the end of the year near Dallas. After all the decades since her children were taken from her, Moore's family will finally be reunited.

However, there remains a problem. FEMA wants to take Moore's trailer. Her mobile home was destroyed beyond repair during Hurricane Rita. She's on a fixed income with medical costs. She owns the property where the destroyed mobile home remains.

If there was any family that deserves a break, this family does. Moore had her babies taken from her when she was a teen. Woolverton was beaten as a teen and lived on the streets for more than three decades. The other children have worked hard to make ends meet and provide for their children. But, they don't have extra income to help their mother get a new home.

If anyone has an underused, quality mobile home or large trailer on their ranch or knows someone (who knows someone...), this family could put it to good use. They're not asking, I am. E-mail me, and I'll put you in contact with them.

I'm certain there will be plenty of laughter and love within those four walls. All they need is a break and a chance to breathe. During this season, many folks open their hearts in generosity. Here's one family deserving of a break.

Please help if you can. Season's Greetings to all.

Switched to New Blogger

Although the blog doesn't look much different, Fayrouz convinced Blogger to change this blog to the new system. They didn't want to change it, and I had a bad case of New Blogger envy.

Consequently, anyone with an "Old Blogger" account needs to make a "New Blogger" (e-mail sign in) account to leave comments from here forward. If you couldn't leave comments before, but had a Blogger account, now you can leave comments because your ID was already in "New Blogger." It's like Klingon with less spit.

There are many advantages, but the biggest advantage of the new system is the ability to add keyword labels. These are located at the bottom of the posts and only connect to hand-chosen labels on this site only.

I did Dec. 2006. I should be able to add tags to older posts over the next few months. This should make some posts easier to understand because I'll link all football photos to "How to shoot football" post, etc.

There are some bugs I need to repair so ignore the photo on the edge of the screen, but I'll get them fixed. Like a cat?

I'll still update the "Find PJ-related posts" section for your browsing pleasure. :-)

Enough for now,

Christmas clown?


Mark M. Hancock / © The Beaumont Enterprise

James "Sunny The Clown" Harper of Port Neches searches for a special balloon during the H-E-B 16th Annual Feast of Sharing at the Ford Park Exhibit Hall in Beaumont on Friday, Dec. 15, 2006.

He seems like a really nice guy. However, I know a few folks who are clown-phobic. Wouldn't it be fun to enlarge this image and put it on the ceiling over their bed while they sleep. ;-}

Many clowns are contortionists and can fit into tiny places. So, don't close your eyes in the shower... and make sure to check under the bed... and in the closet... possibly in the laundry room... and...

Racism and Vidor


Photos by Mark M. Hancock / © The Beaumont Enterprise

Watson Franks' television went blank during the Vidor segment of CNN's Paula Zahn Now special on racism at his home in Vidor Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2006. Homes in Beaumont and Vidor were unable to get the CNN channel while the Vidor segment was aired. Immediately after the segment, the show resumed.

Ray Schultz of Dallas prepares a CNN satellite truck near sundown at Time Warner cable company in Nederland on Wednesday, December 13, 2006. A CNN story about racism in Vidor was interrupted on Tuesday at local Time Warner stations.


A CNN satellite truck is prepared for a live interview of Vidor's mayor by CNN's Paula Zahn at Time Warner cable company in Nederland. Vidor was previously known as a "sunset town." In the Old South, a sunset town was one where minorities were not welcome and often harassed or worse after sunset.


CNN reporter Keith Oppenheim talks with Paula Zahn via satellite at Time Warner cable company in Nederland. Oppenheim filed the original story about racism and Vidor. The Vidor-related segment of the CNN story about racism was interrupted on Tuesday at local Time Warner stations. Time Warner claims it was a technical glitch caused by a technician's human error.

Vidor Mayor Joe Hopkins talks with CNN's Paula Zahn via satellite at Time Warner cable company in Nederland. After initially accepting to host a CNN town hall meeting about racism in Vidor, he canceled the agreement and cited "security" as the reason.

I waited to post this story because it kept getting more interesting. I was scheduled to cover the CNN town hall meeting in Beaumont on Tuesday, but I ended up at a basketball game while Jennifer covered the meeting (I'm still not quite sure how this happened).

I've already said racism is a problem in Southeast Texas. CNN decided to give it some national attention. This caused some grumblings. However, when the Vidor segment of the Paula Zahn Now special on racism was about to air, homes in Vidor and Beaumont only saw dead air on CNN. (See the video)

It also took what could have been an embarrassing moment for Vidor and propelled it into a national incident. After speaking with Vidor's mayor, Paula Zahn's production wanted to host a town hall meeting about racism in Vidor.

First, the mayor said OK. Then, he changed his mind and canceled the meeting citing "security" as the reason.

Beaumont Mayor Guy Goodson helped move the meeting to Beaumont to examine this important issue.

Before the meeting, Zahn went to Vidor to interview Mayor Joe Hopkins. There was no security problem in Vidor while she visited. She then came to Beaumont and conducted the town hall meeting with all the panelists without a security incident.

Please read "When We Lost The CNN Signal" on Fayrouz's blog to understand this strange story.

Happy Holidays

I have a holiday gift for all the good little PJs. I moved the PJ competition calendar to this blog. Although it isn't complete, it should be enough to drive most competitive folks nuts throughout the year. I'll add more as I have time.

Please let me know if I'm missing a legitimate competition, have wrong info or one is trying to grab rights instead of reward fine work.

I've also done some overhauls on the various link lists. Again, please let me know if I'm missing any pro, collegiate or high school PJ blogs.

I'll take suggestions for the info and photoblog lists, but they need to be of significant use for PJs to be included. Some of the listed photoblogs supported this site during its infancy, so they get to stay on the list (you dance with those that brung ya').

Although I'll be posting images, this is probably my last text post until next year. I'm sprinting to the finish this week. In whatever way y'all celebrate the season, have a good one.

Enough for now,
