    Things always seem good when you have money in your pocket.  Many area youth now know that feeling, after the Bi-County Livestock Show Premium Sale.  The 2010 Premium Sale was a huge success with sales totaling $351,558.85.  In comparison, this year’s sale and last year’s sale brought in $75,000 more than the 2008 sale.

    Every two years the UIL conducts realignment for Texas High Schools, and every year someone comes away happy or sad about the results.  Monday the UIL (University Interscholastic League) released the new alignments for Dalhart.  There is good news and bad news. The good news is that we will no longer have those long road trips to Lubbock. The bad news is that we now have a four team district consisting of new addition Pampa, and old teams, Borger, and Perryton.  That means that three of the four teams in our district will make the playoffs; however, if you lose one game, it can be very costly.  More unfortunate news is there are not any 3A teams in our area. With the new alignment it will be very hard to schedule games because everyone else will be competing in district, while we will only be playing three district games.  Scheduling will be a nightmare for Coach Young and his staff.

    An earthquake struck in the Texas Panhandle early Thursday morning as snow continued to fall throughout the High Plains.  Although earthquakes in Texas are rare, they are not unheard of, and Thursday’s quake was relatively small in magnitude.

    In what seems to be a recent transition turning us into a winter ski town, Dalhart has been pummeled with yet another snow storm.  Rain began falling Wednesday around noon and as the day continued, rain transitioned into sleet and then into very wet snow.  Snow continued through Wednesday night and into the early morning on Thursday.  Reports state that Wednesday’s storm left somewhere around four to six inches of snow accumulation with a bed of ice underneath.

    In the movie, “Groundhog Day,” Phil Connors, played by Bill Murray, experienced the worst day of his life over and over and over again.  Each day when he awoke, the same events as the previous day occurred exactly as they had the day before.  Several days passed before Phil realized what an advantage he had because he knew what was going to happen before it happened.  By the end of the movie he was able to change the outcome of his originally horrible day and have a wonderful day instead.

    The first Sunday in February and “Get ready to rumble” can only mean one thing:  the Super Bowl is at hand.  This year’s 44th Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, February 7th in the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.  Dalhart area residents are getting ready too for a game between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints, and whether a Colts fan or a Saints fan, Super Sunday should be fun for everyone.

Each time a person uses the drive-thru lane at a fast food restaurant, or stops into a convenience store for a soda or bag of chips, or darts in and out of the grocery store for an item or two, they get a handful of change.  Most people have a place, either in their car or somewhere in the house, where they plop all of that “unwanted” change.  A jar on the dresser, a cup in the car, or maybe a piggy bank on a dusty shelf in a closet all are potential sources for giving.

    We all have seen the dairy commercials, where Lucy or some other soft-spoken bovine move up in the world by relocating from some frigid climate to the “green open meadows” of California.  The cutesy cows share with viewers in a northern accent of “just how great life is here in California.”  The ad is then followed by the spokesmen stating, “Happy cows come from California.”

    A blizzard is a severe storm condition characterized by low temperatures, strong winds, and heavy blowing snow. By definition, the difference between a blizzard and a snowstorm is the strength of the wind. Ground blizzards are a variation on the traditional blizzard; in that ground blizzards require high winds to stir up snow that has already fallen, rather than fresh snowfall. Regardless of the variety of blizzard, they can bring near-whiteout conditions, which restrict visibility to near zero.

    Thursday’s snowstorm shut down Dalhart and surrounding areas for the second time in a year.  Heavy snowfall throughout Dallam and Hartley Counties led to road closures and businesses soon followed.  By Friday, most people were hunkered down in their homes, schools were closed, and the task of digging out of deep snowdrifts began.

    As temperatures began to drop late Wednesday evening and snow flurries began to fill the air in the early morning hours Thursday, area residents began to ready themselves for the first major storm of the winter season.  Getting ready included extra trips to local stores to load up on supplies and trying to get work done early Thursday in order to get home and off of the roadways before the worst part of the weather settled into the Dallam and Hartley Counties area.

    Accreditation by a well-recognized agency is a seal of quality on an educational organization.  The Association of Christian Schools International promotes the value and worthiness of accreditation and encourages each school and early education program to continuously pursue excellence.  They believe that this pursuit matches the biblical directive of approving “things that are excellent” (Philippians 1:10, KJV).
