    Donald Kendall was once quoted as saying, “The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.”  I, as a writer, interviewing many people, have come to the conclusion that everyone has a story, but not all are interesting.  However, once in a great while you hear something profound from someone, something that resonates over and over in your mind.

    Laureate Gamma’s Valentine  girl has been a member of Beta Sigma Phi since 1982.  She has served as Treasurer of our chapter for many years keeping  us within our budget, balancing our checkbook and always encouraging us to give back to our community.

     She was born in Olney, to William and Mary Kelley.  She is the fourth child of eight siblings (five sisters and three brothers). She graduated from Olney High School and received her college degree from West Texas State University.

     She has been married to her husband Kenneth for 33 years.  He operates an outdoor sign painting  business and does taxidermy work.  She is the mother of three children, Megan, Zack and Zeb, and the Meme of 14 month old Tatum.  Tatum is definitely the apple of her Meme’s  eye.

     She has worked for the 69th Judicial District Community Supervision and Corrections Department for 18 years.  She is currently the director of that department.

     She looks forward to her annual sisters trip that she takes each year with  her sisters.  They are very close and I’m sure a good time is had by all.  You know what they  say, “What happens on the sisters trip stays on the sisters trip.”

    Her hobbies are reading and playing with her grandbaby.  She likes to ride 4-wheelers, go to the lake and the mountains and just loves the outdoors.

     Our Valentine girl is Katherine Sadau.

    Denise Clayton  presented Preceptor Lambda’s Valentine Girl, Stephanie Consbruck.

 

 

    Our sweetheart nominee is going on her second year as being a part of our wonderful group.  When she arrived at our social for the pledges she blended in right away.  She jumped right in there and played our silly games like a real trooper.  I don’t believe the word shy fits in her vocabulary what so ever.  That is just one of the reasons she is so fun to be around.  On occasions she is known to play a good joke on someone but in return she is a good sport if a joke is played on her as well.

     Our Xi Delta Gamma sweetheart might be known as being that sweet little Georgia peach.  She met Jim, the love of her life, while he was in the service.  With a smile, Jim recalls, they met in a bar and it’s been great ever since.  Because of the service they did  a lot  of moving around.  They  finally settled down in Dalhart in 1995.  When she isn’t busy doing hair and making people beautiful she is spending quality time with the family.  She has three children, which she is very proud of; Sara, Justin and Tori. 

     So let me finally introduce to you and congratulate the 2010 Xi Delta Gamma Valentine Sweetheart, Donna Gaddy.

The Surprise

    Groundhog Day!  It was no surprise that both Punxsutawney Phil and Rita Blanca Rocky agreed there would be six more weeks of winter. I don’t know Phil, but Rocky is a sensible little fella and smart enough to run back inside to snuggle himself down for a nap when presented with the alternative; unbelievable piles of snow!

    The numerous bouts with winter weather have created havoc in Dallam and Hartley Counties.  From huge snowdrifts, to fallen trees, to icy front porch steps, the storms have made a mess for everyone.  Along with the anticipated problems with too much snow were a few additional ones that have caused trouble for area residents.  Where to park was high on the list of nuisances that had to be contended with.  Whether in front of houses, businesses or in large parking lots, more parking has been available for piles and piles of snow than vehicles.

What if someone is harassing me that I’m not
related to and I am really scared I’m going to be hurt?

    Question:  I have heard that the only way a person may get a protective order against another person is if they have some sort of family relationship with one another.  What if someone is harassing me that I’m not related to and I am really scared I’m going to be hurt?

    In what I thought was one of the roughest games I have ever seen (at least until the boys game which was much worse), the Lady Wolves used a smothering defense limiting Lubbock Cooper to 18 percent shooting, combined with a lot of trips to the free throw line to overpower Cooper 42-37.  The Lady Wolves who trailed Cooper by as much as nine points in the third period, made nine out of 12 free throws in the fourth quarter (75 percent) and outscored Cooper 16-6, to seal the victory and maintain their third place standing in district play.  Estacado, 4-5, maintained their margin behind Dalhart with a victory over Perryton, but the Lady Wolves have a 5-4 record in district with one game left, Tuesday night against Perryton, while Estacado has to play top ranked Levelland.

    If there was ever an attempt at mutiny, it was certainly Friday night during the last home game by the Wolves.  In a very fast paced game that was up and down the court, the officials struggled to keep up with the action, and there was plenty of action as both teams were very aggressive.  Neither of the coaches were very happy, and both teams became very frustrated. In the end it was the Golden Wolves who kept their composure and pulled out a big victory over the Lubbock Cooper Pirates, 75-57. Believe me, the game was not as close as the score.  Dalhart is now16-6 for the year and 4-4 in district play.
