I believe in Miracles

     As the wheels touched the runway at John Wayne International Airport, my heart skipped a beat.  I knew that in just minutes I would be introduced to my newest grandchild, Gabrielle.  Gazing at her face I experienced, as I had sixteen previous times, the complete joy of being a grandmother.  Even as she slept, she curled those tiny fingers around one of mine and I was smitten.  It was, as always, a moment of sheer joy and unexplainable delight.

Sanford Fritch won the coin toss Friday night to start the first football game of the season, but that was the only thing they won as they deferred to the second half and gave Dalhart the first possession of the game.  Coach Young likes to start out on defense, but it didn’t take Fritch long to regret their decision.  The Wolves took the opening kickoff and Kaleb Grant returned the kick 90 yards for the first score of the game and after the extra point kick by Zinzan Puttick the Wolves led 7-0.

The fire that broke out at Dalhart Consumers just after 7:00 p.m. on July 19 has left the owners with no alternative but to demolish and rebuild the entire facility.  The four-alarm fire left the tire shop located on the northwest side of the building completely destroyed and the remainder of the property damaged.
The gas station and tire shop of Dalhart Consumers was originally built in 1972, and the demolition of the property comes with mixed feelings for many.  The business, located on U.S. Highway 87, north just past the underpass, has been located in Dalhart since 1933.

Pray and pay it forward

In 1976 I was a high school sophomore.  The school I attended didn’t use traditional bells to signal the beginning or ending of a class.  It was quite progressive and we even had Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Tuesday, Thursday class schedules just like colleges used.
