Carson & Barnes Circus arrived in Dalhart early Friday morning to begin setting up for two shows at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. that afternoon. The chill of the 40 degree weather and wind speeds gusting to approximately 31 mile per hour made setting up the huge tent tedious. Roustabouts were tying the tent off to stakes placed several feet in the ground. A small tractor was at the south end of the tent holding it taught as the sides were slowly raised.

After five years and nine months of fighting ovarian cancer, Carol Garlow was transported from a life of chemo, pain and sickness to eternal life with Jesus.
