    All of the objection and disapproval that lead up to Tuesday’s speech given by President Barrack Obama to American school children had largely died out by early Tuesday morning, as the written speech was provided on the Internet the evening before.  School children all over the United States had a rare opportunity to have their interests reach the forefront of the Administration’s agenda, and the Administration made a few changes to the scheduled speech that squelched opposition.

Question:  I’m planning to keep my son out of school on the day that President Obama is speaking to children via CNN and the Internet.  I do not want my child to have to listen to the speech.  If I take my child out of school on that day, does he have to be counted absent?  Isn’t there some rule that states that a parent may take their child out of school for religious or political beliefs or something?

Last week the offense was on show in Fritch, this week the defense took the starring role, holding Guymon scoreless and limiting the Tigers to 62 yards of total offense.  The Wolves could never quite get the passing game established on a consistent basis, and the huge Oklahoma linemen kept the Dalhart running game in check.  The Wolves were able to move the ball in the first half, but were not consistent and failed to score on several opportunities. The game was very exciting and proved to be a great learning experience in preparation for homecoming next week against Childress.

Merrily we mow along

    Last weekend I got to mow.  You read that right, I was allowed to mow.  I like mowing, the smell of fresh cut grass, and the instant gratification of seeing something finished and made tidy. I have written before about how much I like to operate machinery and equipment, and the bigger, the better.  My ears perk up at purring of a well oiled engine and as it turns out we have a whole arsenal of lawn equipment. The problem is I seldom get the opportunity to use any of it and the reason for this is that my husband also likes to mow and he regards mowing as part of his domain – just like the smoker.

  Dalhart is home to several beautiful parks that are designed for all ages to enjoy, hold family reunions and picnics, school picnics, or just to sit and relax.  Five parks are neighborhood parks open to everyone, and three additional park areas and a fishing pond are located at Lake Rita Blanca.  All of Dalhart’s parks are the product of many years of hard work and dedication to not only have them built in the first place, but to maintain them on a daily basis so that residents, visitors and travelers may use them for an hour or even an entire day or overnight.

“Can my child get a ticket for being out past curfew even if he is on his way home?”

    Question:  Can you explain to me about the curfew laws.  What aged children are required to be in by a curfew and what times do they have to be in?  Also, does it mean that they must be on their way by a certain time, or already home?  Can my child get a ticket for being out past curfew even if he is on his way home?

  Couch Young always builds his team around his defense, which would bend but not break Friday night, but it was the offense that was on display at Sanford Fritch, as the Golden Wolves outgunned Fritch 38-0 to open the season.  On a beautiful night for football in the Panhandle the Wolves opened the scoring with a 7 yard touchdown run by Adrian Ruiz to take the early lead 7-0 after the extra point by Zinsan Puttick.  The Golden Wolves defense held Fritch on a 4th and 5 attempt and took over on downs near the end of the first quarter, but could not score again.  In the second quarter Zinsan Puttick kicked a booming 52 yard punt from deep in Dalhart territory and Adrian Ruiz knocked the ball loose from Fritch and the Wolves took over with great field position.
