Reflections

It seems like yesterday that my first child, a son, was placed in my arms and I began a new journey as a mother.  As children began filling the house with laughter and tears, I relished every moment of motherhood.  Three girls in a row made me a little uneasy, realizing we were part of a Mennonite farming community in Nebraska and sons were highly prized.  A second son arrived, and later, two more adorable little girls. Their father summed up the situation by saying, “Its’ okay, if we have girls, the boys will eventually come.”

    Saturday it was very apparent that the Lady Wolves hadn’t played a volleyball game in over 11 days as they opened district play against the Pampa Lady Harvesters.  The Lady Wolves just could not get in sync, and their serving was very lethargic at best.

Does Texas have anything similar to the right to freedom of speech in the U.S. Constitution?

Question:  I know that freedom of speech and freedom of the press are very important rights granted in the U.S. Constitution in the Bill of Rights, but does Texas have anything similar?

Texas Independence Day 2004 was the day that Texas State Senator for the 31st District, Kel Seliger was sworn into office after a special election, and he’s been re-elected into office twice since.  Although he is not up for re-election in the November 2, 2010 election, he remains close to constituents, traveling the vast space of his district and visiting with people in Hometown meetings.

    The Golden Wolves picked off three passes in Friday nights game, and then returned all three interceptions for touchdowns, giving the Wolves 21 points.  That was more than enough to defeat the Lubbock Cooper Pirates in their new football stadium.  In a game that was dominated by the Dalhart defense for three separate people to have an interception is very unusual, but for all three to score off of the interceptions never happens.  The defense was led by Casey Devries, who was all over the field making tackles and forcing bad passes.  The weather was perfect for the Wolves who got to play in cooler weather, which really helped with the conditioning and gave some of the players who had been under the weather all week a chance to not get dehydrated.

Compartments

    Growing up, the evening meal in our home was called dinner, not supper, and, it was a special time. It included meat, potatoes, vegetable and dessert served on real plates with cloth napkins folded neatly under the fork, always on the left hand side.  At precisely 5:00 p.m. we “graced” the dinner table, and rarely was there an acceptable excuse that would allow our absence.

    A horseman named Phil Dawson saw the need to raise money for American children who are sick with illnesses that require organ transplants, and rather than just talk about that need, he founded America Fundraisers, Inc., a 501(3)(c) non-profit corporation and began dedicating his time to fundraising.
