Special to the Texan

    The Dalhart City Council held the first hearing on the tax rate for the coming fiscal year. The proposed tax rate is the same as it has been the past three years -- $0.333. No one from the public commented during this hearing and the council voted to close the hearing. The tax rate was not adopted at this time as another hearing must be held.

“Is there actually a law against being a peeping Tom?”

    I know that there is such a thing as a “peeping Tom,” but is there actually a law against being a peeping Tom?  Is it a crime for someone to look into someone’s windows, or is it some sort of a civil wrong?

It is no small undertaking to put together and pull off the huge BBQ each year in Dalhart, TX.  Each year, as part of the XIT Rodeo and Reunion festivities, the men begin early to plan the menu, prepare the meat, dig the pits, layer the wood, stoke the fire, remove the meat, set up the feeding lines, feed the crowd, and clean up the scene.

Emptiness

    It is easy to trust life when there is money in the bank, grain in the barns and nice cars in the driveway.  When things are going great we have no apparent need of relying on God.  We tend to think, “I can do it myself.”

“Can my sister keep this same person from filing another lawsuit against her?”
