Compartments

    Growing up, the evening meal in our home was called dinner, not supper, and, it was a special time. It included meat, potatoes, vegetable and dessert served on real plates with cloth napkins folded neatly under the fork, always on the left hand side.  At precisely 5:00 p.m. we “graced” the dinner table, and rarely was there an acceptable excuse that would allow our absence.

    A horseman named Phil Dawson saw the need to raise money for American children who are sick with illnesses that require organ transplants, and rather than just talk about that need, he founded America Fundraisers, Inc., a 501(3)(c) non-profit corporation and began dedicating his time to fundraising.

“Why do I have to sign to sell my wife’s property?”

    Question:  My wife and I live in a house that was her home before we married.  She inherited the house from her parents.  We want to sell the house and build a home together.  The problem is that I work out of town all week and am home on the weekends.  We were told that she can’t just fill out all the papers to sell the house alone but that we both have to sign.  Why do I have to sign to sell my wife’s property?  I’ll have to take off work for an entire week just to be here one day.

The Golden Wolves touched the ball 20 times in the first half of Friday night’s game against Levelland and scored 48 points.  That’s an average of 2.4 points every time they touched the ball on offense.  Not bad for a defensive oriented team.  Meanwhile the defense helped out by causing turnovers, intercepting balls and just playing great run defense to shut down the Lobo attack.  In the end the Wolves were just too much for Levelland winning 55-0, with everyone getting some playing time as the Wolves get closer to district competition in 3 weeks.

Special to the Texan

The Dalhart City Council set the tax rate at the same rate as in previous years -- $0.3333 per $100 valuation on taxable property. However, because of increased valuations, the rate represents an effective tax increase of a little over 2.5 percent. The council also voted to increase certain fees for city services. In the water department, the fee hikes were necessary to maintain the plumbing system throughout the city. Dalhartans can expect to see an increase of $1.00 for base services and a 5 percent increase in consumption fees on the city bills. Mayor Kevin Caddell did note that even with the increases, Dalhart’s water rates are still lower in comparable cities in the Panhandle. Councilwoman Lola Barrow questioned the $10 animal disposal fee. City Manager Greg Duggan explained that this is a fee, which would be charged if someone called and said they were no longer able to care for their pet and wanted the city to take care of it.

Laughter - still the best medicine

 
    “A time of just sharing,” the invitation said. Sorority would reconvene after a summer of activities, vacations and responsibilities. Yippee! Getting together with everyone would be the highlight of this month, so far!

    A remodeling project went on at Dalhart Federal Savings and Loan Association and now the business is ready to have an “unveiling” and let everyone enjoy its new look.
    During the six month long project, everything was remodeled except the carpet.  The lobby is now dressed with new furniture, and new front and office doors adorn the entire place.  There’s also a new west door and some new carpet and tile. The new furniture replaces the old, which makes everyone happy.
