Tomorrow is the big day; the mystical, magical day that gets more attention than any other of the 364 days in the year.  This is the day when
family and friends gather ‘round the fireplace, dining room table, festive tree and yes, the TV!  This is the day when the kids are up early, dragging the sleepy parents out of bed (you know, the ones who have been up half the night putting together the bicycle and assembling other toys to “help Santa” a bit.)

By JUDI WIEGMAN

Special to the Texan

The Dalhart City Council held their third and final reading of Ordinance 2010-24, which grants a 10-year franchise agreement to Rita Blanca Electric Cooperative, Inc., at their regular meeting on Tuesday, December 14. The new agreement will raise the current franchise fee charged to Rita Blanca Electric customers in the city limits of Dalhart from three percent to five percent of a customer’s total bill. The motion to approve the final reading was passed unanimously by the council. Councilman Kurtis Thomas, who voted against the ordinance on its previous two readings because he feels the franchise fee is unnecessary, was unable to attend Tuesday’s meeting.
