    If one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, then Saturday’s Trail of Sales made many men rich.  The annual Trail of Sales was hosted by the Dalhart Area Chamber of Commerce, and this year more than fifty homes were signed up, but many more area residents held garage sales as well.

“Did I do something that is not legal, or was she just looking for a reason to stop me?”

    Question:  I was just coming home from the bank when I was stopped by a Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy. After I gave her my insurance and license, she told me she stopped me because while I was stopped at the red light, I had taken my foot off the brake (I have a standard) and my stop lights were not engaged. I can’t find this in the Texas DPS Driver’s Handbook. Did I do something that is not legal, or was she just looking for a reason to stop me? She only gave me a warning but I would like to know for future reference.

The hottest weather of the year is scheduled to hit Dalhart on Friday with mercury reaching triple digits.  Friday’s hot spell will only be surpassed by Saturday’s, when 100 degrees will seem cool compared to 104.  The overnight lows will provide much needed relief when temps drop back into the middle sixties.

“I Can See!”

My husband has worn corrective lenses since third grade.  As soon as he was old enough, he got contacts, which he has worn for over fifty years.  Recently, we both needed to update our glasses so we made appointments. The doctor was appalled to learn that Chalmer has been wearing hard contacts all these years and never changed to the soft, friendlier-to-the-eyes, contacts!  Because of this the doctor told him he had to wear glasses until his cornea, which now resembled a road map, settled down.

The story of Memorial Day begins in the summer of 1865, when a prominent local druggist, Henry C. Welles, mentioned to some of his friends at a social gathering that while praising the living veterans of the Civil War it would be well to remember the patriotic dead by placing flowers on their graves.

    School is out for the summer, kids are playing in the parks and temperatures are on the rise.  With summer come thunderstorms and tornado warnings, both of which have already become a part of the weather reports nearly daily.  Summer also brings temps nearing the 90’s and 100’s, so staying cool is important to avoid heat related illnesses.

If you get sued and the person knows that they really have no
cause of action against you, can their lawsuit get thrown out?

    Question:  I have been sued by someone claiming that I caused serious bodily injury to them in a car wreck last year.  I was never even in a car wreck with this person, and I am sure that they know they have sued the wrong person because of the way the paperwork is worded.  Is there some law that says if you get sued and the person knows that they really have no cause of action against you, that their lawsuit can get thrown out?

I am not a soldier, but I know quite a few. I respect them greatly and am glad for what they have done or do.  In honor of Memorial Day I write this poem, from the perspective of a modern day soldier.  Perhaps it will provide new perspective to those who are distant from the reality of the war(s), so rarely spoken about in daily media, or simply be relatable to the men and women who have or currently are serving in the best military in the world. God bless America and the soldiers who protect her.
