Chalmer walked into the clinic for his DOT physical to renew his CDL driver’s license unaware of any problem.  As he approached the pickup where I was waiting, I noted the stressed look on his face.  “I flunked,” he began.  “My blood pressure was elevated and they only renewed it for three months.” A trip to our family doctor resulted in him being placed on a mild medication. He continued to walk the dog, tweaked a few eating habits and recorded good readings on the monitor.

If you live in Dalhart, Dumas, Stratford and the surrounding areas, then the chance that you’ve used or at least seen a convenience store is pretty significant. While the stores serve their purpose and offer clean facilities, fuel and snacks, let’s be honest – traditional convenience and travel centers are not exactly bastions of fashion, tastefulness and food that beckon consumers to return. Additionally, not everyone on the go has the time or desires a sit-down restaurant when they are hungry. Frontier Fuel Co., the parent company of Express Lane Stores, began to believe that the time had come for more: A one stop operation that meets the needs of the public and leaves them loving it so much they want to return.

Yankee Doodle
Not so Dandy

By JUDI WIEGMAN

Over the past month, a strange, reoccurring sound invaded our home. Very faintly and at random times we would hear the following tune, no words, just the tune; “Yankee doodle went to town riding on…,” and then silence.
