I almost missed his call.  Looking at my phone I didn’t recognize the (972) number that showed twice on my cell phone.  Expecting a call from a repairman, I hurriedly re-dialed and heard the familiar voice of my grandson, Michael. “Hello grandma, are you going to be home anytime this evening?” He inquired.

Jesus had interesting ways of teaching.  Sometimes He told stories called parables.  At times He asked interesting questions and sometimes answered a question with a question.  He often rebuked His followers in His teaching by saying, “Oh ye of little faith” or “How is it you have no faith?”

West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne illness. Up to 80 percent of people infected with WNV will have no symptoms and will recover on their own; however, some cases can cause serious illness or death. People over 50 and those with weakened immune systems are at a higher risk of becoming ill if they become infected with the virus. Dallam County Sheriff, Bruce Scott forwarded a broadcast email to local media sources as well people in the area that are exposed daily to the elements that mosquitoes thrive in on August 10. “Now is a good time to begin reminding people of the seriousness of this disease.

During discussions at Tuesday’s Dalhart City Council meeting, City Manager James Stroud proposed reactivating two water wells in Rita Blanca Lake Park sometime in the future. Currently, all of the city’s wells are concentrated in one area and feed into one main line. By activating these two existing wells instead of drilling new ones to handle Dalhart’s growth, this would save the city about half a million dollars.

As children prepare to head back to school, Texas shoppers get a break from state and local sales taxes on August 17-19, the state’s annual sales tax holiday. Tax-free weekend was created in 1999 by the Texas Legislature. Originally, the event was held during the first weekend of August, but because of a new school year schedule the event was moved to the third weekend of the month. The law exempts most clothing and footwear priced under $100 per item from sales and use taxes, saving shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.
