In the winter, the afternoon Daylight Saving Time advantage is offset for many people and businesses by the morning’s need for more lighting. The advantage is generally less than one hour. So, the rationale was that Daylight Saving Time saves energy for lighting in all seasons of the year, but it saves least during the four darkest months of winter November, December, January and February, when the afternoon advantage is offset by the need for lighting because of late sunrise.

The Lady Wolves started slow but finished strong as they claimed the bi-district championship with a four game victory over Levelland in the Dimmitt gym Tuesday night.  Both teams played a little tight in the first game and seemed to have some playoff jitters, but the Lady Wolves put together a good run and overcame five service errors to win 25-22. Levelland settled down and took the second game 25-22.

I took Exit 74 off of the interstate and headed west on Highway 165. It wasn’t far now, and I assumed was through the worst of it because I was off the interstate and away from the myriad of insane drivers that populated it.  Did they realize it was snowing like Jack Frost and Old Man Winter were having a throw down directly above us?  This journey was going to be less harrowing now. It had to be. I only had a few miles left to go.

The Coon Memorial board agreed on Thursday to re-appoint several physicians and hospital staff members to various medical boards on which they have previously served. The board also adopted a resolution to procure a $300,000 bank loan against a CD, which will be purchased with partial funds from a $325,000 check received from Medicaid. The loan will improve the hospital’s cash flow, as well as give it more time to use the money. While the resolution was approved, CEO Leroy Schaffner stated after the meeting that there may be further discussion on the matter.

The Golden Wolves led the entire game against Borger, but the Bulldogs scored 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and took the lead over Dalhart with 1:55 left in the game, sending the Wolves to 1-1 in district play, while the Bulldogs moved to 2-0 with one game left in the season.  The game was marred by lots of penalties by both teams, and it took the officials a long time to decide to take control of the game.  Both teams were frustrated by several missed calls and lots of motion and late hits that were not called.  In the end it was the lack of depth for the Wolves coupled with Dalhart’s continued struggles with special teams that spelled doom for the Wolves.  Borger’s running back and his team mates only played on offense, while the Wolves were forced to go both ways, and they seemed to run out of gas in the fourth quarter.

In all my interviews over the last six months, I have always asked my subjects this question of their old homes or buildings: “Have you ever found any love letters, or special papers hidden anywhere in the wall...or rafters….or floorboards?” I am a true romantic, wanting to find some relic of the past that was hidden from everyone else….some treasure that tells the story of the family or people that were there before.

Encounter the “Fourth” Man

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

In the book of Daniel we find the amazing story of three young, handsome Jewish guys who were brought in to be wined and dined, groomed and educated for three years to enter into the King’s service. The Chief Official changed their names to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They were supplied with food and wine directly from the King’s table.

It may seem a strange place to face God, but sometimes we find unexpected things in the most unanticipated places. I’m sure that statement has been used before, yet it still rings true for this story.
It was mid-October when I made the fateful decision to venture off to Colorado for one last camping trip of the season. It might have already been cooling down up there, snow had fallen in the mountains, but I was certain I could handle it. Surely it wouldn’t be that bad. After all, I like going off on adventures on my own, camping by myself to get a little time away from everything.

The fall hunting season, for the many sports-minded individuals in the Panhandle, has arrived. The excitement of taking to the plains in the cool, early morning air has made even the most steadfast of hunters a little giddy. However, the drought has made things very difficult in a lot of ways for wildlife this year. Even if they could find water, animals may have had trouble finding food, as trees and plants also suffered from the lack of moisture. So what can hunters expect?
