BISD axe school bus transportation for after school activities
BEAUMONT - Another big change at the Beaumont school district, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Buses for after school activities have been suspended indefinitely. That means no buses for athletic practices, band, cheerleading, volleyball, drill team and other extracurricular activities.

Also, buses that have transported students home after games have been suspended.

Tutorial buses for after school activities have been suspended as well.

It's part of the budget the board of managers adopted last week that cut expenses at the district.

A BISD spokesperson says the change may be revisited in the future.

New Texas laws that went into effect today (Sept. 1)
KFDM News - Texas state legislators meet every other year, but some laws passed more than 12 months ago are finally effective today.

That's certainly the case with House Bill 5, the sweeping legislation changing the course load requirements for graduating high school seniors.

Now, there are multiple tracks a student can choose his or her freshman year.
The non-binding track guides a student through classes which offer preparation for college or a job in the workforce.

Kraft recalling American singles
KFDM News - As you pack those school lunches, you may have to hold the cheese, if you're using Kraft American Singles.

Kraft is voluntarily recalling more than 7,000 cases of Kraft American Singles.

There are four different types of Kraft American Singles in the recall. The reason is due to non-acceptable storage temperatures for an ingredient.

Look for the 'best when used by' dates of Feb. 20, 2015 and Feb. 21, 2015.

So far, there hasn't been reports of anyone becoming ill from the cheese, according to the company.

You can return the cheese for a full refund.

Have a warrant in Jasper? You might see your photo on Facebook
JASPER - The Jasper Police Department is taking a new approach for those with warrants.

They are giving people with active warrants until this Friday, Sept. 5 to take care of them of their warrants or they will become public knowledge.

Tweet from Gov. Perry's Twitter account mocks Democratic DA
KFDM News - Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he has nothing to do with a post made from his Twitter account that mocked Democratic District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg.

The tweet showed a picture of Lehmberg with a bunch of beer bottles, and it read: "I don't always drive drunk at 3x the legal blood alcohol limit but when i do, I indict Gov. Perry for calling me out about it. I am the most drunk Democrat in Texas."

Perry tweeted Sunday that the picture was unauthorized, that he does not condone it and that he had taken it down. 

The governor is accused of abusing his power after he vetoed funding to Lehmberg's department in 2013 after she refused to resign following a drunken driving arrest and conviction.

He was indicted earlier this month on two felony counts.

Perry has called the charges politically motivated.
