Donald and Cheri DeJong have spent their entire careers in the dairy industry. Originally from California, both graduated from California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, CA, with Donald two years ahead of Cheri. Donald’s father had migrated from Holland in 1957 to the United States, and after operating several of the “bread and milk” stores that were popular at the time, he finally bought some land and opened a dairy in Chino, CA. Donald went into real estate right out of college, but decided after a few years that the dairy business was where he wanted to be. A dairy opened up in Central Texas, and he and his brothers bought it together in 1987. When Donald and Cheri married in 1989, together they bought the Rising Sun Dairy near Dublin, TX.

The Focal Point

By  JUDI WIEGMAN

It has been quite a journey since we moved back into our house in the Dallas area.  The magnitude of the task to restore the home to a livable condition has been overwhelming.  As the repair work continued, one project led to another and yet another. Inside, most of the work has been done and we are blessed to have friends who helped in the four months since our journey began.

A family in Dallas, one who thought that they were supporters of American made products, was asked by ABC news to let their reporter in their house to see how many items in their household were actually made in America.

It has recently come to light that energy drinks, whose popularity has skyrocketed over the last decade, may have adverse effects.  These are most prominent in minors but are not limited to any age group.  The public outcry demands something change before the problem becomes anymore widespread.

Not long ago the majestic symbol of the United States of America was an endangered species. Decades of hunting as well as the pesticide DDT that entered the food chain via fish and disrupted and weakened the reproductive cycle contributed to the decline of the American Bald Eagle. However, today, there is a great chance that if you spend time out by Rita Blanca Lake or Buffalo Springs you may have the privilege of glimpsing, firsthand, the power and grace of a bald eagle. Yes, they are back – and in numbers strong enough to remove them from the endangered species list.
