How you can honor the memory of legendary SETX football official Beau Hicks

BEAUMONT - Friends of a legendary football official from Southeast Texas are asking you to help honor his memory.

Beau Hicks died Sunday, August 24. He was just a few days short of his 83rd birthday.

KFDM was invited to a ceremony August 18 at Harbor Hospice. A large group from the Texas Association of Sports Officials presented Hicks with its lifetime achievement award.

He was an official in the Southwest Conference and Big 12 for 59 years. He worked nearly a dozen bowl games including the Cotton Bowl and Aloha Bowl.

Visitation is from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, September 2 at Broussard's on Major Drive in Beaumont. Funeral services are at 10 a.m. Wednesday, September 3 at Wesley United Methodist Church.

In lieu of flowers you can donate to the Texas Association of Sports Officials Scholarship Fund. The donation is tax deductible.

Officials who attend the funeral are asked to wear striped shirts to honor Hicks. Coaches are asked to wear the shirts or jerseys from their school.


Why Attorney General Greg Abbott backed out of debate with Wendy Davis
KFDM News - Attorney General Greg Abbott backs out of one gubernatorial debate with opponent Wendy Davis.

According to a spokesperson for Abbott, the campaign canceled the Sept. 30 debate due to a disagreement over the format. Abbott's campaign says it's working to set up another debate with Davis following the cancellation.
Abbott and Democrat Wendy Davis have only one other debate planned, but Abbott's spokesman says the campaign is trying to schedule another one.

KFDM News will broadcast a debate between Abbott and Davis at 6 p. m. on Sept. 19. Our parent company -- Sinclair Broadcasting Group -- has the exclusive rights that debate between the candidates.
