    The 13th Annual XIT Mud Bog was held during the 73rd XIT Rodeo and Reunion and saw many exciting results.  Each participant was scored on either their overall distance, if their vehicle became stuck, or their overall time if they finished the course.  Each competitor was judged on the better of two runs.  Kurt Haschke reported that only one vehicle suffered a blown engine, one with a broken axle, one flat tire and one starter that went out.

  It’s that time of year, when a young man’s fancy turns to “football.”  This is the time of year that almost every male looks forward to – the brisk chill in the air; the sound of helmets crashing into each other; and the whistle of a coach, calling the end to a play or suggesting that you better start running.  Now that the final scrimmage is behind the Wolves, the season can begin in earnest.

Be Still!

    On July 14th, friends gave birth to Jordan Brook Fox in Ft. Worth, TX.  The birth was especially exciting to her parents after they recently experienced a stillbirth and several miscarriages.  But frail little Jordan was not without problems.  In the first five days of her life, she had six surgeries all involving issues with her tiny heart.  The Fox family remained strong and hopeful as little Jordan began to respond.  But on Friday, August 21st tiny Jordan’s struggle ended when the decision was made to remove her from life support.  Kim and Joel held her in their arms and said their goodbyes.

“Am I supposed to mark the eggs I sell by grade and size, and how do I go about learning how to do that correctly?”

Question:  I raise chickens and use their eggs for personal use.  If my chickens lay a lot of eggs, then I try to sell the extra ones that my family and I do not use.  I’ve been selling eggs that way for a couple of years.  Usually, the same people buy eggs from me.  One lady that bought eggs from me said that she heard that I’m supposed to mark the eggs with their “grade” before selling them.  I never heard of that before, although I know that when I go to the store I see that eggs are sold by grade and size.  Am I supposed to mark the eggs I sell by grade and size and how do I go about learning how to do that correctly?

    The school zones were busy with students, parents and vehicles on Monday.  A few drivers were pulled over for a reminder to slow down during the school zone hours, but for the most part, traffic ran as smoothly as expected.  Parents are encouraged to follow the flow of traffic when picking up and dropping off children.  Parents are also asked to make a note of their children’s teachers’ conference periods when needing to speak with any of the area teachers.  Each teacher has designated time for conferencing with parents, so that the school day remains uninterrupted.

    It has been said many times that “when it rains, it pours.”  That undeniable saying seems fitting to the conundrum of the downturn in the economy and how it has affected local business.  While many businesses are still managing and a few are even prospering, several businesses have fallen prey to an ever declining market.  With the imposing closing of Premium Standard Farms, cutbacks at several local businesses, and most recently the closing of Clayton Cattle Feeders it does seem that the rain has turned into a downpour.

…and we like it that way!

Congratulations to the XIT Directors, past and present, to their wives and everyone else who worked so hard to on the 73rd XIT Rodeo and Reunion.  Because of previously scheduled travel arrangements for Luca Bella, Nick and I were unable to stay long, but I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed riding in the parade and sharing that experience with Luca. It was gracious of The Texan to allow us to represent it. Luca was absolutely thrilled and so was I.  The crowd was wonderful!  It was great to see so many old friends and greet new ones. Many, many thanks to all of you on the parade route; neither Luca nor I will ever forget it.

    Mosquitoes have remained in the area throughout the summer.  A relatively mild winter and greater than average summer rains has made it easy for mosquitoes to flourish.  People who are suffering from the annoying itch of mosquito bites signal the need to spray insecticide by contacting the city offices.
