The Lady Wolves opened their playoff run with a stellar victory cruising to a three-game sweep of the Shallowater Fillies, Tuesday night in Canyon.  The Lady Wolves were a little tentative in the first game, as many the girls were playing in their first playoff game; however the outcome of the match was never in doubt, as the Lady Wolves took control early and overcame some unforced errors to claim another bi-district championship.

Daylight Savings is here again and it’s time to turn the clocks back one hour.  Turning the clocks back is a much more welcomed event than when an hour disappears in the spring.  Mark the calendar for November 8, when Daylight Savings takes affect; however, most people will go ahead and turn clocks back before going to bed Sunday night, November 7

Disappointment? Appointment!

Arriving at the front door of our house in Euless, we spied the key in the front door, indicating the renters had moved out.  Well, the people were gone, but what they left behind is etched in my mind and will only be erased by time

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t the Texas Constitution require a balanced budget?

Question:  I saw a commercial on TV with Governor Rick Perry taking credit for keeping a balanced budget while he’s been in office.  Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t the Texas Constitution require a balanced budget?

The 13 seniors on the Golden Wolves football team finished their last home game in style as they dominated the Pampa Harvesters both offensively and defensively, overcoming penalties and 3 fumbles lost on the way to a 38-6 victory Friday night in what might be the last game ever played in Memorial Stadium.  The stadium has a lot of memories but the Dalhart fans have never been prouder than they were at the way the Wolves bounced back from a defeat last week to Borger.  Coach Young and his staff had the team really well prepared and nothing that the Bulldogs tried seemed to work.  The only points that Borger was able to score was off of a 25 yard fumble return for a touchdown, otherwise the Wolves would have held Borger scoreless.  The Wolves have held their opponents to a total of 60 points this year, which is an average of 6 points a game, while scoring 392 points, an average of 39.2 points per game.

Special to the Texan

Dalhart residents have one thing to look forward to in 2011: increased taxes on their electric bills. The Dalhart City Council voted to accept the first readings of Ordinances 2010-22 and 2010-24, which will set the franchise tax rates with Xcel Energy and Rita Blanca Electric Cooperative at five percent instead of the current three percent. According to the city charter, three readings of franchise tax rate ordinances must be held, and then the ordinance will go into effect no sooner than 60 days following the last reading. In order to get all of the readings in and for enough time to pass, the new tax rates will go into effect on February 1, 2011. If citizens desire, they may challenge the tax rate with a referendum. The franchise tax agreements will be in effect for 10 years.

Dilemmas

Our journey in life is sometimes clouded by the uncertainty of a dilemma.  We wonder which fork in the road to take and how it will affect a later season of our life.  Sometimes we become bogged down in the decision making process and sometimes feel we have a clear picture and go full steam ahead towards the goal.
