“Does he get to decide for both of us what property he keeps and what property I keep?”

    Question:  My husband and I have been separated for a while now.  We haven’t decided if we are going to get a divorce.  Can my husband keep coming over to my home demanding to pick up property?  Every so often he wants something else and all of it is something that we bought together.  Does he get to decide for both of us what property he keeps and what property I keep?

    The Texas panhandle offers views that are difficult to surpass.  Rolling plains, kaleidoscope sunsets and crystal clear blue skies are just a few of the qualities that make the High Plains spectacular.  Another steadfast feature of the area is the numerous farms that are not only a staple to the economy, but are the framework that hold the canvas of the beautiful scenery.

Stop Screaming!

     A few weeks ago in one of my grandchildren’s schools, a nine-year-old boy hung himself in the restroom.  I am still reeling from the thought of it.  What could possibly be so terrible in his life to make him choose death?  I write this column today in the hope that some will weep and the message will become clear; we must change.  The spiral seems to be going downward!

    Last year just as the the Dallam-Hartley Counties Historical Association concluded its annual Art exhibit of student artists, the snow was beginning to fall in the area.  That was March 26th and the blizzard that followed shut down Dalhart for days.  This year’s celebration hopes to find fairer weather.

Dallam and Hartley County Sheriff’s Deputies and State Troopers responded to a hit-and-run with a train at a crossing off of Andy James Road.  The locomotive conductor stated that he “saw the vehicle was blue, that it was a pickup, and had a single occupant wearing a black cowboy hat,” but could not provide further details for identifying due to limited sight from inside the train’s locomotive.

The snow has barely melted and a new concern begins.  Tornado season begins as soon as the cool weather of winter hits the warmer weather of spring, and again when the warmer weather of summer hits the cooler weather of fall, making tornado season a seven to nine month ordeal.  With tornado season comes severe thunderstorms, downburst rains and hail.  Area residents are encouraged to prepare for the windy season early.

The Office of Greg Abbott, Attorney General for the State of Texas recently sent out a consumer alert to law enforcement agencies across the State.  The warning advises parents to keep children away from a new form of exploitation.  The exploitation comes in the form of a website that offers video chat with randomly selected chatters.  The possibility that a child entering into a chat with a sex offender is extremely high due to a lack of safeguards in place that would exclude young users.

Program put on by 3rd grade students from Dalhart Elementary School and 4th and 5th grade students from Dalhart Intermediate School, and it was a huge crowd pleaser.  Under the direction of coaches Tisha Scott and Bridgett Nicholson, and with the help of the teachers, the children got “Crazy in the 80’s,” the theme for the program this year, and entertained hundreds of guests.

The Rich Little Poor Girl

    It had been a year since our precious mother passed away, and my two older siblings and I agreed to host a party at our home in Michigan where our elderly father lived.
    Excitement mounted as the 747 bounced along the runway in Detroit and escalated as I caught the first glimpse of my sister waiting at the gate.  Our chatter inside the car equaled the noise on the busy freeway as we traveled to our family home.  A tearful reunion ensued as we met the rest of the family.
