SETX Disaster Expo Scheduled for April 23

in Events/Weather

Jefferson, Orange, Hardin, and Jasper counties will host a Southeast Texas Disaster Expo at the Ford Park Exhibit Hall. The event is free to the public and will take place on Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is free to the public thanks to community partners and sponsors.

The goal of the expo is to make sure community members are better prepared for potential disasters including flooding, industrial incidents, and hurricanes.

Two years ago, Jefferson County Judge Branick and his Jefferson County Emergency Management team began working with a local business to host a disaster expo for our area. The goal was to better prepare and inform area residents for potential disasters, including flooding, industrial incidents, and hurricanes. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 Pandemic, as well as other major incidents, delayed the event.

With increasing population, new construction, and infrastructure, Southeast Texans are faced with more challenges during disasters. We have responded to and persevered through numerous natural and manmade disasters. We learn more from each incident and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.

Presenters will include area, state, and federal elected representatives.

Community members are invited to bring their families. There will be activities for the kids, free food, and more than 40 booths and displays.

Renaissance Faire Coming to SETX

in Events

Lumberton will be the site of Southeast Texas’ newest event, the SETX Renaissance Faire. Dates are May 7th-8th for Opening and Medieval Mother’s Day and May 14th-15th for Pirate Weekend. It opens at 10 AM each day. The fair will be held at 2952 US 69 South in Lumberton, which is the grounds of the East Texas Trading Post.

The fair will feature belly dancers, bagpipers, Zorro with a bullwhip, a juggler, an orchestra, battling knights, and cheesecake in a cup.

Vendor space rentals and participant tickets can be purchased online here. Participants get $5, off when pre-paying online. Ticket prices for 13 and older are $15 at the gate, and children 0-12 get in free. A $40 pass is available to attend both weekends.

Texas Waives Sales Tax on Emergency Supplies April 23-25

in Events

Texans will be able to purchase emergency supplies tax-free next weekend to help prepare for severe weather.

The sales tax holiday starts at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, April 23, and ends at midnight on Monday, April 25.

The state Comptroller’s office estimates shoppers will save more than $1.5 million in state and local sales taxes during the tax holiday, which was approved by the Texas Legislature in 2015.

Emergency preparation supplies that qualify:

If purchased for less than $3000

  • Portable generators

If purchased for less than $300

  • Emergency ladders
  • Hurricane shutters

If purchased for less than $75

  • Axes
  • Batteries, single or multipack (AAA cell, AA cell, C cell, D cell, 6 volt or 9 volt)
  • Can openers – nonelectric
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Coolers and ice chests for food storage – nonelectric
  • Fire extinguishers
  • First aid kits
  • Fuel containers
  • Ground anchor systems and tie-down kits
  • Hatchets
  • Ice products – reusable and artificial
  • Light sources – portable self-powered (including battery operated) – includes candles, flashlights and lanterns
  • Mobile telephone batteries and mobile telephone chargers
  • Radios – portable self-powered (including battery operated) – includes two-way and weather band radios
  • Smoke detectors
  • Tarps and other plastic sheeting

Purchases that do not qualify include:

  • Medical masks and face masks
  • Cleaning supplies, such as disinfectants and bleach wipes
  • Gloves, including leather, fabric, latex, and types used in healthcare
  • Toilet paper
  • Batteries for automobiles, boats, and other motorized vehicles
  • Camping stoves
  • Camping supplies
  • Chainsaws
  • Plywood
  • Extension ladders
  • Stepladders
  • Tents
  • Repair or replacement parts for emergency preparation supplies
  • Services performed on, or related to, emergency preparation supplies

For purchases made online, Texans should note that delivery, shipping, handling, and transportation charges are part of the sales price. If the emergency preparation item being purchased is taxable, the delivery charge is also taxable, so consumers are advised to consider these charges when determining whether an emergency preparation item can be purchased tax-free during the holiday.

For example, if you purchase a rescue ladder online for $299 with a $10 delivery charge, the total sales price is $309. Because the total sales price of the ladder is more than $300, tax is due on the $309 sales price.

Also, to qualify for tax-free status, the sale of the item must take place during the holiday, not necessarily receive the item within the period if purchased online.

For example, if someone purchases a qualifying item online on April 25 at 5 p.m., but the generator will not be shipped until April 29 and will not arrive until May 3, the purchase will still qualify for the exemption.

Several over-the-counter self-care items, such as antibacterial hand sanitizer, soap, spray, and wipes, are always exempt from sales tax if they are labeled with a “Drug Facts” panel in accordance with the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.
