Last night I was watching the news and the story on at the time made me stop and watch. A family in Dallas, one who thought that they were supporters of American made products, was asked by ABC news to let their reporter in their house to see how many items in their household were actually made in America.

Not long ago the majestic symbol of the United States of America was an endangered species. Decades of hunting as well as the pesticide DDT that entered the food chain via fish and disrupted and weakened the reproductive cycle contributed to the decline of the American Bald Eagle. However, today, there is a great chance that if you spend time out by Rita Blanca Lake or Buffalo Springs you may have the privilege of glimpsing, firsthand, the power and grace of a bald eagle. Yes, they are back – and in numbers strong enough to remove them from the endangered species list.

Authentic vs. Artificial

By JUDI WIEGMAN

Starbucks has come out with a new campaign.  They put a notice on their little brown bag that holds yummy rolls, muffins, and other goodies.  They are on a “roll” to make their food healthier for the consumer. They have removed the artificial trans fat, artificial flavors, artificial dyes, and high-fructose corn syrup.

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.

They are the family histories of many generations of our beloved Dalhart town.
