    The community of Texline has been plagued with municipal water problems for years; however, a new well was drilled and water quality and quantity was vastly improved.  The close knit community had become accustomed with mediocre municipal water, which many chose not to drink, but rather use for only the necessities.  With the advent of the new well outside of town providing quality water, the past problems were forgotten.  Those memories were brought to the forefront once more on April 13 when Texline’s main water well was struck by lighting and great damage was done to both the pump and the well itself.  The city was once more reliant on three existing wells from another aquifer that were an unreliable source of water.

    Question:  I went through a divorce about one-and-a-half years ago and I kept my married name.  Now I want to go back to using my maiden name. When I went to change my driver’s license, I was told I need a court order that changes my name or it can’t be changed on my license, which I need in order to change other things.  Do I have to reopen my divorce case so that I can get my name changed back to my maiden name, and if so, how do I do that?  My ex-husband told me that I can’t change my name now unless I get remarried because of our child, and that if I try to he will contest the change and tell the judge that my name should stay as his last name.  Is that true?
