“What is the law about really young kids working?”

Question:  I went to the circus last weekend and it made me wonder, is it legal for kids to work like those in the circus?  There were several kids that performed.  What is the law about really young kids working?

It didn’t take long for the Golden Wolves to make some adjustments to the Seminole Indians spread offense and the Dalhart defense gave up some yardage, but they continued their dominance and never let the Indians into the end zone, limiting the Indians to 164 yards and one field goal.  The Wolves were able to put pressure on the Seminole quarterback who completed eight of 23 passes for 77 yards.  Burtch entered the game having passed for 1,440 yards.  The Wolves are now 6-0 for the first time since Coach Stephen Young came to town.   His first year in Dalhart the Wolves started the season at 7-0.

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?

    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.
