The Christmas Season brings with it many treasured traditions and decorating a Christmas tree certainly tops the list.  The season is meant to bring happiness and not tragedy.  A home fire caused by lights and decorations could more than ruin the holidays.  Fortunately, fires caused by holiday decorations are preventable.

Hunting season is here, or fast approaching, for many species of birds and fur-bearing animals.  Cold weather and snow are often the first signals that it’s time to pack up the portable stove, move the deer stand to the hunting lease or set up the blind.  Another undeniable sign is the large flocks of geese dotting the skies in arrow formations. The bellowing squawks of the geese are a welcomed event every year for hunters and non-hunters alike.

Part of the Journey

By JUDI WIEGMAN

Emotions ran high as I strolled through the house one more time before beginning the eight hour journey that would take me back to my home in Euless, Texas.  I recounted the joy that this 1930’s bungalow afforded me in the three short years I lived in Dalhart.  My hand traced a small smudge on the front door glass left by a grandchild.  Although the house was empty, I could hear the laughter, recall the tears and I knew the memories made were permanently etched on my heart forever.  I found Chalmer and melted into his arms, sobbing. We prayed together for our family we were leaving behind, the house and the long trip before us.

Since my husband and his ex-wife filed for a divorce then aren’t we married and our child entitled to the same rights as his other children?

By ROBIN SCOTT

Question:  My husband and I have been married for three years and we have a two-year old daughter.  We didn’t have a wedding, but are common law married.  We just found out that his ex-wife never finished their divorce.  His ex-wife is now saying that our child has no legal rights if my husband were to pass away.  Since my husband and his ex-wife filed for a divorce then aren’t we married and our child entitled to the same rights as his other children?

The road we travel

It is interesting to me, the road we travel.  We all wish it would be a clear shot with the destination clearly marked; no valleys, no hills and no curves.  For most, that is not the case.  It has taken me a long time to discover that “life is a journey, not a destination.”
