Journalist moving to the area for a job and looking to get a feel for what people are talking about for story ideas, etc. Any ideas? What are the issues facing the community? Thanks!

Vidor BB Festival. Something no right about the way it was handled this year....I still wonder if it is totally legal to take Vidor city "HOT" tax money and spend it outside of the city. Law describes Vidor as inside the city limits. Not just because you have a Vidor address. Sure they have been doing it...That could just mean no one has complained to the right state people. I was out last night. I noticed that there wasn't a large number of people at our motels...The main rule to spending "HOT" tax money is it must "put heads in beds". I don't see this event doing what the law requires for the use of this money.
