She rode her first horse at age three. An only child in a family of horse lovers – her dad was a team roper, mom became a team roper once she married her dad, and, of course, she became a team roper as soon as she was old enough. The family business involved ranching and cattle, so the great outdoors was all that Toree Winchell knew. Folks from Dalhart may even recall her name because she was Miss XIT 2004. But where does a young lady who doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t around horses decide to go to college?

Area residents may have noticed that the moon appeared much larger than normal on Saturday at sunset.  The size of the moon didn’t change, but the distance between the moon and the Earth was decreased by the elliptical path of the moon, giving off the optical illusion that the moon had increased in size.

When we changed the calendar this month, it was nice to see the words first day of spring appear.  This winter, although not a rough one, is almost over.  Spring, according to the calendar, begins on Sunday, March 20 this year, but Mother Nature has already begun to show signs that it is time to become less dormant.  Plants are beginning to turn green and buds are appearing on trees.  It won’t be very long until the greenhouses are open at various local retailers.

By JUDI WIEGMAN

There is a story circulating about an elder lady who was bedridden.  She had a chair right beside her bed and when the pastor came to visit, he mentioned that she must have been expecting him since the chair was placed close so he could sit by her bed.  The lady informed him that the chair was not for him but for Jesus. She told the pastor that each afternoon she invited Jesus to sit in the chair and chat with her.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  It seems that everywhere a person looks today the color green can be seen.  The Irish have been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day for over one thousand years.  It initially was a religious festival where the Irish would attend church in the morning to remember the death of St. Patrick and then in the evening families would celebrate with dancing, drinking and eating traditional corned beef and cabbage.
