“Why do I have to sign to sell my wife’s property?”

    Question:  My wife and I live in a house that was her home before we married.  She inherited the house from her parents.  We want to sell the house and build a home together.  The problem is that I work out of town all week and am home on the weekends.  We were told that she can’t just fill out all the papers to sell the house alone but that we both have to sign.  Why do I have to sign to sell my wife’s property?  I’ll have to take off work for an entire week just to be here one day.

The Golden Wolves touched the ball 20 times in the first half of Friday night’s game against Levelland and scored 48 points.  That’s an average of 2.4 points every time they touched the ball on offense.  Not bad for a defensive oriented team.  Meanwhile the defense helped out by causing turnovers, intercepting balls and just playing great run defense to shut down the Lobo attack.  In the end the Wolves were just too much for Levelland winning 55-0, with everyone getting some playing time as the Wolves get closer to district competition in 3 weeks.

Special to the Texan

The Dalhart City Council set the tax rate at the same rate as in previous years -- $0.3333 per $100 valuation on taxable property. However, because of increased valuations, the rate represents an effective tax increase of a little over 2.5 percent. The council also voted to increase certain fees for city services. In the water department, the fee hikes were necessary to maintain the plumbing system throughout the city. Dalhartans can expect to see an increase of $1.00 for base services and a 5 percent increase in consumption fees on the city bills. Mayor Kevin Caddell did note that even with the increases, Dalhart’s water rates are still lower in comparable cities in the Panhandle. Councilwoman Lola Barrow questioned the $10 animal disposal fee. City Manager Greg Duggan explained that this is a fee, which would be charged if someone called and said they were no longer able to care for their pet and wanted the city to take care of it.

This is just one story; the story of a husband, dad and grandpa who died on 9/11. That day, America lost a brilliant military mind; a man dedicated to God, his family, and his country.
Stanley R. Hall, a civilian engineer, called by some “the father of electronic warfare,” worked along with the Department of Defense, often meeting with our military at the Pentagon.  His main job was creating (inventing) anti-radar for our Navy fighter jets.  In other words, he made our fighter pilots invisible to enemy radar.

The events of September 11, 2001 mark a change in my life. On that day my precious father, Stanley R. Hall, was ripped from this world as American Airlines flight 77 plummeted into the Pentagon in Washington DC.  Numb and dazed we walked those first months. FBI agents, memorials, honors given, all a haze of lost senses. As we traveled by car to Virginia that night, the skies were silent, empty and dark. The amazing thing about the night sky without planes, the stars are more notable. It was as though the magnificence of God’s majesty shined the brighter for the lack of man’s influence upon the heavens. Beyond this world, there lies goodness that cannot be touched by evil.
