The Lady Wolves battled the 9th ranked Monahans Lady Lobos for the area championship Saturday afternoon in Lubbock and fell just short as they fought hard, but a few errors cost them the match.  The two squads were very similar; however, the Monahans’ block was very effective against the Lady Wolves, and errors by the Lady Wolves kept them from making any big runs to win the match.  The Lady Wolves ended their season as Bi-district Champions with a record of 26-17.  Seniors, Shelby Wilt, Sadye Hammett, Alix Allen, Molly Kruse, Jonna Gallegos, and Sarah Cover, all contributed to a very successful season for the Lady Wolves, and they will be hard to replace. However, there is a strong nucleus of girls coming back for next year’s team.

The weatherman brings news of freezing temperatures that will enter the Dallam and Hartley Counties area and remain for the next ten days.  The area’s average low temperature for November of 30 degrees may seem warm if the threatened 20-degree weather arrives by Friday.
A cold front found its way into Texas on Tuesday, just in time for a bitter morning drive on Wednesday.  A slight chance of rain and snow is expected late Thursday and Friday, but temperatures should increase during the day melting off any precipitation.

The Lady Wolves opened their playoff run with a stellar victory cruising to a three-game sweep of the Shallowater Fillies, Tuesday night in Canyon.  The Lady Wolves were a little tentative in the first game, as many the girls were playing in their first playoff game; however the outcome of the match was never in doubt, as the Lady Wolves took control early and overcame some unforced errors to claim another bi-district championship.

Daylight Savings is here again and it’s time to turn the clocks back one hour.  Turning the clocks back is a much more welcomed event than when an hour disappears in the spring.  Mark the calendar for November 8, when Daylight Savings takes affect; however, most people will go ahead and turn clocks back before going to bed Sunday night, November 7

Disappointment? Appointment!

Arriving at the front door of our house in Euless, we spied the key in the front door, indicating the renters had moved out.  Well, the people were gone, but what they left behind is etched in my mind and will only be erased by time

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t the Texas Constitution require a balanced budget?

Question:  I saw a commercial on TV with Governor Rick Perry taking credit for keeping a balanced budget while he’s been in office.  Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t the Texas Constitution require a balanced budget?

The 13 seniors on the Golden Wolves football team finished their last home game in style as they dominated the Pampa Harvesters both offensively and defensively, overcoming penalties and 3 fumbles lost on the way to a 38-6 victory Friday night in what might be the last game ever played in Memorial Stadium.  The stadium has a lot of memories but the Dalhart fans have never been prouder than they were at the way the Wolves bounced back from a defeat last week to Borger.  Coach Young and his staff had the team really well prepared and nothing that the Bulldogs tried seemed to work.  The only points that Borger was able to score was off of a 25 yard fumble return for a touchdown, otherwise the Wolves would have held Borger scoreless.  The Wolves have held their opponents to a total of 60 points this year, which is an average of 6 points a game, while scoring 392 points, an average of 39.2 points per game.
