Stalls For Animals At A Premium

Preparations are underway to take in 'horses' being evacuated because of 'Hurricane Rita.' Horse stalls are assembled at the Nacogdoches County Exposition Center. Close to 200 reservations have been made by horse owners living in the Galveston and Beaumont areas. First arrivals are expected Tuesday evening.

Stall space will be at a premium. The Angelina County Expo Center can't board animals because of this week's Forest Festival. People with stall and pasture space are asked to call the Lufkin Chamber of Commerce.
