“Do I have to report the accident to anyone other than the insurance companies since the police did not show up?”

Question:  I got into an accident in a parking lot here in town.  The police were not called and the other driver and I exchanged information.  I didn’t think that either vehicle had much damage but as it turns out my vehicle needs about $1,700 in repairs.  My question is do I have to report the accident to anyone other than the insurance companies since the police did not show up?

Special to the Texan

A 60% tax increase for Dalhart electric customers came one step closer to reality. The Dalhart City Council, at their November 9 meeting,  passed the second readings of Ordinances 2010-22 and 2010-24, which grant new franchise agreements to Southwestern Public Service Co., dba Xcel Energy, and Rita Blanca Electric Cooperative, respectively. The new agreements would boost the current franchise tax rates from three percent to five percent, which represents a 60% increase in the tax. It is estimated that that will put another $150,000 in the city’s general fund. The lone councilman voting against the ordinances was Kurtis Thomas. The councilman voted against the first reading of the ordinance at the previous council meeting.

Clean Sweep

The insurance adjuster walked from room to room in our “messed up” rent house, shaking his head in disbelief.  A real estate agent commented, “This house has ‘good bones’ and can once again shine.”  We gained strength for the task from each person’s analysis and dreamed of how it could look when the disaster becomes history

The Lady Wolves battled the 9th ranked Monahans Lady Lobos for the area championship Saturday afternoon in Lubbock and fell just short as they fought hard, but a few errors cost them the match.  The two squads were very similar; however, the Monahans’ block was very effective against the Lady Wolves, and errors by the Lady Wolves kept them from making any big runs to win the match.  The Lady Wolves ended their season as Bi-district Champions with a record of 26-17.  Seniors, Shelby Wilt, Sadye Hammett, Alix Allen, Molly Kruse, Jonna Gallegos, and Sarah Cover, all contributed to a very successful season for the Lady Wolves, and they will be hard to replace. However, there is a strong nucleus of girls coming back for next year’s team.

The weatherman brings news of freezing temperatures that will enter the Dallam and Hartley Counties area and remain for the next ten days.  The area’s average low temperature for November of 30 degrees may seem warm if the threatened 20-degree weather arrives by Friday.
A cold front found its way into Texas on Tuesday, just in time for a bitter morning drive on Wednesday.  A slight chance of rain and snow is expected late Thursday and Friday, but temperatures should increase during the day melting off any precipitation.
