This Week's Events

  • The Head of Jesus Christ
    Wednesday, February 01, 2017 6:07 PM
    There’s a painting of Jesus Christ that hangs directly behind the pulpit at the Draw Methodist Church.  It’s been there all my life and probably has been in the church most of my siblings’ lives as well.
    It’s called the Head of Christ, by Warner Sallman.  Over 500 million copies of the painting have been sold. 

  • Rio Grande has its own border wall

    You never know if elected officials will follow up on the campaign rhetoric they spew while seeking election, but it appears President Trump is serious about building a wall along our southern border.
    I just hope he and his advisors use some common sense when they go about it.

  • Putting on my big-girl boots for bridal fair
    Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:03 PM
    If you don’t have Facebook then you may not know that mine and Darryl’s daughter, Katy, is getting married.
    She accepted the proposal of her boyfriend during the Christmas holidays.
    So she is now in the middle of planning a wedding.

    Dawson County may have a claim to fame even greater than Lamesa’s “legendary” status as the birthplace of the beloved chicken-fried steak.
    I doubt, however, that this one will wind up with an official legislative designation and the creation of an entire celebration like Lamesa’s annual Chicken Fried Steak Festival.

  • A feisty, diminutive president led the way
    Wednesday, January 18, 2017 5:58 PM
    The fourth President of the United States, James Madison, was a little fella.  He was only five feet four inches and weighed less than 100 pounds.  But he was one of our bravest and savviest founding fathers to be elected president.
