    Saturday it was very apparent that the Lady Wolves hadn’t played a volleyball game in over 11 days as they opened district play against the Pampa Lady Harvesters.  The Lady Wolves just could not get in sync, and their serving was very lethargic at best.

Does Texas have anything similar to the right to freedom of speech in the U.S. Constitution?

Question:  I know that freedom of speech and freedom of the press are very important rights granted in the U.S. Constitution in the Bill of Rights, but does Texas have anything similar?

Texas Independence Day 2004 was the day that Texas State Senator for the 31st District, Kel Seliger was sworn into office after a special election, and he’s been re-elected into office twice since.  Although he is not up for re-election in the November 2, 2010 election, he remains close to constituents, traveling the vast space of his district and visiting with people in Hometown meetings.

    The Golden Wolves picked off three passes in Friday nights game, and then returned all three interceptions for touchdowns, giving the Wolves 21 points.  That was more than enough to defeat the Lubbock Cooper Pirates in their new football stadium.  In a game that was dominated by the Dalhart defense for three separate people to have an interception is very unusual, but for all three to score off of the interceptions never happens.  The defense was led by Casey Devries, who was all over the field making tackles and forcing bad passes.  The weather was perfect for the Wolves who got to play in cooler weather, which really helped with the conditioning and gave some of the players who had been under the weather all week a chance to not get dehydrated.

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.
