Local farmer and rancher Bud Snead received the 2011 Farmer and Rancher of the Year award Wednesday, November 30, 2011 in Amarillo. When he was coerced into attending the luncheon where all of the nominees were in attendance for the award ceremony, Snead was lead to believe he would be seated at the Triumph Seed table along with all of his family. Snead truly did not know that he would be receiving the prestigious award.  His family and friends were all in on the secret. “We kept it from him for two weeks,” explained Jimmie Dee Bennett.

Sounds like an impossible task -- but you never want to say “impossible” to Asleep at the Wheel, the famed western-swing, boogie, and roots-music outfit that’s, amazingly, still on the upswing. That’s saying something; too, considering the group’s been around for nearly 40 years, turning out an incredible 25+ albums while playing an unrelenting schedule of one-nighters that would make a vaudevillian dizzy.

I’ll keep rolling along,
Deep in my heart is a song,
Here on the range I belong.
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

It’s up to you how you chose to work off that Thanksgiving feast but the Shopping Warriors have a system. Shop until you are exhausted and your feet are killing you, and then sit down with a cup of coffee, a piece of chocolate and try on shoes! Drop your packages off at your car; remember to lock them in your truck and Roll that buggy back in the store for the next haul.

Linda and Stormy Bosell of Dalhart have adopted four children, have legal custody of two, and “would take more if the state would allow us,” said Linda. The couple was not a foster family, but was contacted by the state when the children needed placement because they were “the closest thing to family” the children had. The four oldest children are related, two of them being half-brothers to the Bosell’s natural grandsons.
“There was really no thought process,” said Linda. “The kids needed a home.”

Whether it is a weekend trip or a month long excursion, the Dalhart Police Department wants to help make your vacation an enjoyable one. One of the first steps is making sure that your home is in order while you are away. Many times, vacationers can really get in a rush and leave their homes wide open to a burglar. Often times, homeowners will leave so fast that they even forget to close and lock the doors.

The holiday is here, and whether you’re ready or not, the traditions of family, friends, football and food are upon us. The love-hate relationships with green bean casserole, the price of gas, travelers taking to the highways, and the move for retailers to open Thanksgiving afternoon: it’s all here. And then comes Christmas on the heels of a big fat turkey.

If you want it to rain, just wash your car or hang your sheets on the clothes line right? No! Repaint the mail box placed to collect those letters bound for the North Pole!
