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.

No Room, for them

By JUDI WIEGMAN

What is it about the Christmas story that brings us back again and again to tell it, read it and share it?  Is it the mystical part of Christmas that we like?  Is it the variety of characters in an almost “impossible” string of events that draws us and creates the wonder?  I wonder!

Question:  I am worried that I might have made trouble for myself.  I responded to an online blog and my comments, although true, weren’t very nice.  I felt bad almost immediately and was able to have my comment taken from the blog.  The person that I wrote about did read the comment and responded.  Nothing has happened and no one has said anything, but I am wondering if I could be in trouble for slander?

The Christmas Season brings with it many treasured traditions and decorating a Christmas tree certainly tops the list.  The season is meant to bring happiness and not tragedy.  A home fire caused by lights and decorations could more than ruin the holidays.  Fortunately, fires caused by holiday decorations are preventable.

Hunting season is here, or fast approaching, for many species of birds and fur-bearing animals.  Cold weather and snow are often the first signals that it’s time to pack up the portable stove, move the deer stand to the hunting lease or set up the blind.  Another undeniable sign is the large flocks of geese dotting the skies in arrow formations. The bellowing squawks of the geese are a welcomed event every year for hunters and non-hunters alike.

Part of the Journey

By JUDI WIEGMAN

Emotions ran high as I strolled through the house one more time before beginning the eight hour journey that would take me back to my home in Euless, Texas.  I recounted the joy that this 1930’s bungalow afforded me in the three short years I lived in Dalhart.  My hand traced a small smudge on the front door glass left by a grandchild.  Although the house was empty, I could hear the laughter, recall the tears and I knew the memories made were permanently etched on my heart forever.  I found Chalmer and melted into his arms, sobbing. We prayed together for our family we were leaving behind, the house and the long trip before us.
