McFarlands win week one football contest

The 2013 football contest is underway. Week one is done but there are 11 more weeks to play. Entering every week increases your chances of winning the $100 grand prize and you might win a few $25 prizes along the way. We have never had a grand prize winner that did not enter every week.

The first week had three contestants pick 14 of 15 games. They were Ronald Diaz of Friona and Rusty McFarland and John McFarland, both of Friendswood, Texas. We used the tie-breaker to determine the winner, in this case two winners. The McFarlands turned in identical entries, even down to both tie-breakers being the same. The tie-breaker game was Cowboys-Giants 67 points. The McFarlands’ guess was 48 and Ronald Diaz guessed 28 so they were closer. (more...)

Mayor's Minutes

Great news!!! Home builder: Wayne Berry of Jillian Homes located in Clovis, New Mexico has agreed to come to Friona and build some duplexes/condos on the block between 6th & 7 street between Ashland and Woodland. Blue prints are at the architect as we speak. We will be able to see the prints in the near future to get an idea of what Wayne is proposing to build.

There will be mostly 2-bedroom, along with some 3 bedroom and a few 1-bedroom duplexes. We are very excited about this much needed addition. There will be a ground breaking ceremony on September 16th. This addition would not have been possible without the FEDC and Cargill(Jon Surman). A special thanks goes out to everyone involved that made this possible and a much needed addition to our community. Friona has needed this addition for a long time. (more...)
