Special to the Texan

Dalhartans can look forward to paying more on their electric bills beginning in February. The Dalhart City Council passed on the third reading and voted to approve Ordinance 2010-22, a franchise agreement with Southwestern Public Service (Xcel Energy), that will increase the current franchise fee from three percent to five percent. Councilman Kurtis Thomas stuck with his position and voted against the ordinance, as he had done at the previous two readings. The ordinance is scheduled to go into effect on January 31, 2011.

Trust and Obey

On a recent Sunday, I noted the theme of our praise and worship songs were about trusting.  In fact, one of them was the old familiar hymn I heard my mother sing in the kitchen; Trust and Obey.  I hope you are able to recall the words to that hymn; “When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, what a glory He sheds on our way. When we do His good will, He abides with us still and with all who will trust and obey. Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday that is multifaceted.  The holiday provides, for most, a couple of days off from work, the chance to cook and eat great food, family gatherings, football on television throughout the day, snuggling weather, the best shopping of the entire year and much needed nap time.  The holiday comes at just the right time each year, on a Thursday, giving many a four-day weekend.

It is usually about this time of year when the question comes.  It also usually comes on the Monday preceding Thanksgiving and right after the Sunday when John Madden extols the virtue of fried turkey on NFL Today.

Can a judge deny me a name change just because of the name that I want to choose?

Question:  I hate my birth name and I want to change it, and the name I have chosen for myself is one that my family hates.  I’m over 18 years of age and know that I do not need my family’s permission, but my parents keep saying that there is no way a judge would let me change my name to the one that I want.

Recently, the city of Dalhart cleaned up Memorial Park Cemetery after Memorial Day weekend and stirred up a great deal of emotions for area residents.  Some were thrilled with the cemetery’s appearance, while others were disappointed and hurt that items left at the gravesites of loved ones were removed.  The problem is complex because it strikes upon deeply personal feelings pitted against the city’s need to maintain the cemetery in a particular way.

The Golden Wolves ended their season on a sad note when they fell to the Monahans Lobos Saturday night in Wolfforth.  Dalhart took the lead on the first play of the game when Harper Scofield intercepted a pass at the three and rumbled into the end-zone to put the Wolves on top 7-0.  The Lobos gradually took control of the game, shutting down the Dalhart offense and managing to run the ball against the vaunted Dalhart defense, sending the Wolves home after one of the most successful seasons in history.  The 13 seniors on the team left a legacy that will be remembered for a long time, and started a tradition that will continue for years in the future.  The final score was Monahans 32, Dalhart 7.  Dalhart finished the season at 10-2 and with memories that will last a lifetime.
