As Isaiah stepped out of the Old Testament and into my classroom a hush fell over the normally rowdy group of youngsters. In a firm, determined voice, he spoke to the children “For unto a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulders, and He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…”  Isaiah expressed to the children that he was holding on strongly to HOPE; believing the Messiah would one day come.

Over 70 percent of the fire departments in the Unites States are volunteer departments. In Texas, the percentage is slightly higher at 77 percent of all departments are comprised of volunteers. What would happen if there were no volunteers to put out fires or responded to other emergencies in Dalhart, Hartley, Texline or Channing? Or better yet, what would happen if the volunteers that committed their time fell through on their obligation.

It wasn’t business as usual at Tuesday’s Dalhart City Council meeting. At the previous meeting, various entities made presentations to receive a slice of the city’s Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) fund of about $235,000. Mayor Pro Tem Joe Garcia then appointed a committee consisting of himself, Councilman Kurtis Thomas and Councilwoman Kerry Miller. Usually what happens is this committee comes back at the next council meeting and presents their recommendations to the city council as to how the funds should be disbursed, which is usually pretty much in line with the entities’ requests. But not this time.

Three men set out on a journey from Dalhart to Michigan to attend a funeral.  They prayed for God’s protection and asked others to pray for them also. Sometimes things happen and we attribute them to “just bad luck.”  In this case, running out of gas might really look like a stroke of bad luck.

Black Friday has become an unofficial national holiday for Christmas shoppers each year. The theory behind the super sale day is to generate enough business for retailers to move their recorded sales from the loss column to the profit column, out of the red and into the black. Retailers offer deep discounts to promote sales and make their profit margin off of volume.
