“Can my sister keep this same person from filing another lawsuit against her?”

Question:  My sister lives in another part of Texas.  She keeps getting sued by the same person over and over.  Isn’t that some sort of abuse of the legal system?  Can my sister keep this same person from filing another lawsuit against her?

    A short five months ago Dalhart was buried in snow and everyone was freezing and counting the days until summer.  By the fourth big snowfall no one in the Dalhart area wanted anything more than a big thaw. Now that it’s August and the Dog Days of Summer are in full sweat-dripping, air-gasping, beg-for-mercy swing, snow and freezing temperatures don’t seem so bad after all.

Special to the Texan

Faced with a deficit of some $29,000 in the water and sewer department, and having to outlay some $500,000 for water tower repainting, the Dalhart City Council is considering raising the base rate of water, sewer and sanitation by $1.00 for each service, and increasing the consumption rate on each service by 5 percent. The increase would take care of the shortfall, and over time would pay for the painting of the water towers. In addition to these expenditures, the city is looking at the probability of replacing the Tanglewood Lift Station on Norman Avenue.

    Seven months ago, Scandia Wind Southwest began signing land lease agreements for the Mariah Wind Project in Parmer, Sherman and Dallam Counties.  Everyone was filled with high expectations and great hope.  Even so, questions and doubts lingered.   Perhaps that is the human side of most people
    In Parmer County, 350 landowners have signed wind lease agreements.  In Sherman and Dallam Counties, 229 landowners have signed leases, which equates to 504,000 acres.  By most accounts, from the wind industry sources watching the project, they are dumb founded that in seven month’s time, one-half million acres have been leased within the Mariah Project.

Can you tell me who our state representatives are?

    Question:  I don’t have a question so much as a request.  I would like to know who all of our U.S. and state representatives are and how to contact them for the Dallam and Hartley Counties area.  I find it very confusing to try to find this information from the phone book or online.  Can you write a column with this information?

Wearing the XIT Rodeo and Reunion crown is a prestigious honor and earning it takes effort and determination.
The winner must “stand out” in three areas; horsemanship (50 points), personality (30 points) and participation (20 points).  She must be a Sophomore, Junior or Senior and live within a 50 mile radius of Dalhart.  She must also be unmarried.

It takes a tremendous amount of planning; blood, sweat and even some tears to organize and “pull off” the yearly event known as the XIT Rodeo and Reunion.  The excitement mounts as each 24 hour period dawns and then the sun sets.  There is something for everyone!  Young and old alike find just the right event to attend.  There is fine toe-tapping music and dancing ‘til yer boots and buckles can stand no more!

The “Plain Jane” Clock

We worked hard in the heat and dust to help our son clean out an old storage building in Colorado.  Sitting outside was a huge dumpster brought in to hold the junk no one wanted.  Old books and magazines, metal desks and filing cabinets, broken chairs and many other items were being cast over the side because their value was nil.
