    Amy Winton, an artist originally from New England, will be honored in a reception at the XIT Museum during the 74th XIT Rodeo & Reunion.  From earliest childhood Winton has been drawn to the countryside.  She stated, “Wilderness began for me as soon as I stepped off the road into forest or meadow, the trappings of civilization melted away into textures of ferns, light on a rock wall, the form of a tree against the sky, the colors in a shadow and the elements that determined the atmosphere through which I looked.”

Amazing Chocolate Moments

    I love deep rich chocolate.  My favorite comes in a round dish with the amazing name; “French Silk Pie.”  Second would be the rich moistness of a well made German Chocolate Cake. Just the thought tickles my taste buds and causes me to dream of a land flowing with chocolate syrup.  (I really think I would have loved Charlie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.)  My husband, knowing my love for chocolate, always maps out the exit where we can stop at a Russell Stover’s outlet on every trip.

     In 1922 the Dalhart School burned to the ground.  The fire occurred in the wee hours of the morning, but most of the townspeople turned out to watch as the flames engulfed and finally destroyed the building.  No one knows why so many people came to see the fire.  Perhaps it was because back in 1922 a fire was entertainment of sorts.  Perhaps it was because it was the biggest event of that time, or perhaps it was a way to say goodbye to a building that held so many memories but was quickly disappearing.

When can an attorney withdraw?

    Question:  I heard in the news that the lawyer that represented Lindsey Lohan quit on her.  Can a lawyer decide to stop representing a client like that?  When can an attorney withdraw?

Special to the Texan
 
    Expansion plans for Coon Memorial Hospital got a little closer to reality as the Dalhart City Council approved Ordinance 2010-10, which grants city right of way along 16th Street to the Dallam-Hartley Counties Hospital District. Leroy Schaffner, CEO of the hospital district, said the plans are to expand the Emergency Room (ER) to nine rooms, with three trauma rooms. A Magnetic Resonance Imaging unit (MRI) would then be installed where the current emergency room is located. According to City Attorney Greg Oelke, the ordinance declares that the city will abandon the right of way. A quitclaim deed will then be issued from the city to the hospital district for this land. The action was taken at the July 13 meeting of the Dalhart City Council.

Comin’ Home

Friday I woke up at 4:45 a.m. and made my way to the kitchen. I ground some of the special coffee beans Janda gave me from Oregon. The aroma filled the room and encouraged me to get the cinnamon rolls started.

    Ah, summertime. Lemonade, watermelon, and lying on your back in the lush green grass, looking up and watching the clouds. That’s pretty much all the clouds have been good for this past week.

Dalhart experienced a true traffic jam late Friday afternoon when a semi truck carrying a combine became lodged underneath the underpass on Highway 87 just north of Highway 54.
Four men from New Zealand driving in a convoy heading north on Highway 87 found themselves the cause of the major traffic jam.  The men were driving four semis carrying four combines.  The lead driver radioed the other three that his vehicle would not make it under the underpass.  The other three drivers parked their vehicles and walked to the underpass.  Within minutes Dalhart motorists and travelers were at a standstill that lasted more than 30 minutes.

“We have both always been involved with our children and we are both fit parents.  Shouldn’t we share joint custody of our children?”

    Question:  My spouse and I are separated.  My spouse keeps telling me that “she” is going to get full custody of our children and that I have no say in the matter.  I can’t understand why that would be true.  We have both always been involved with our children and we are both fit parents.  Shouldn’t we share joint custody of our children?
