The headline in the May 10, 1929 edition of the Dalhart Texan reads: “MISSION INTRODUCES TALKING PICTURES.” At that time, Dalhart was making the jump to “talkies,” or pictures with sound, and thus giving Dalhart a “place with the leading showhouses of Texas.” This seems to be the theme of the Mission Theater, which closed its doors for the last time on March 1, 2011. For a little over one hundred years, the Mission has been the hub of Dalhart’s main street activity, providing a gathering place for children and adults alike, and serving scores of popcorn and cherry limes to its patrons.

Two of Dalhart’s oldest and most character-rich homes were mail-order houses in the 1920’s.While they may have been factory ordered right down to the nails and hinges, these houses are not just buildings ordered out of a catalog. They are the family histories of many generations of our beloved Dalhart town.

In the Middle of …

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN
Growing up in Michigan, the state with many lakes, allowed me ample opportunity to spend time in boats.  I remember the joy of bobbing to and fro in a fishing boat, cruising the lake in speed boats and learning to water ski, jumping from a dock. Never once do I recall being on the lake when a storm came up and I feared for my life.

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.
