Believers in astrology may soon find their sign has changed. Astrological signs are determined by the position of the sun relative to certain constellations on a person’s day of birth. These positions were determined more than 2,000 years ago, and stars have now shifted in the night sky so much that horoscope signs are nearly a month off.

2011!  Remember when everyone was all “hyped up” about the calendar changing to the year 2000!  People were stock-piling food, water and money; just in case “all systems” crashed.  Ten years have gone and a brand new one is stretching out before us. What will it bring?  Someone recently said, “Your set-back is a set-up for something good in 2011!"

Our neighbors from Stratford came to town for some basketball games Tuesday, and it was a very exciting, tough-fought game by both teams.  The Wolves struggled with penalties the first half, while Stratford played almost flawlessly.  However, in the second half, the role seemed to be reversed until the end of the game when Stratford picked up most of the penalties.  The Wolves took an 8-5 lead off of an outlet pass to Davonte Burks who raced down court and laid the ball in for two points.  At the end of the first quarter the lead was 12-7.

The winter months most surely include snow, ice and wet roadways.  During 2010 the Dallam and Hartley Counties area saw more snow than usual and an ice storm that left city streets covered in tree limbs and branches.  Planning ahead for safe winter driving while the weather is pleasant and the roads dry is a good plan.

Pay It Forward - Strikes Again

It seems like weeks have passed since my fingers struck the keys and a Jotting Judi transferred from my mind to the written page.  It amazes me how much can happen in just a short week or two and how much I have to share with our readers.
