The Friona Chamber of Commerce and Friona Economic Development Corporation and reps from TxDot and the Duininck Co. along with George Frye and Miss Friona Kendall Barnett, held a ribbon cutting Tuesday morning to "officially" open the new right turn access at Highway 60 and Main. Mr. Frye is said to have proposed the idea to TxDOT several years ago so he was invited to be the first driver to use the new turn lane. That is George with the scissors and driving his pickup thru the turn lane. The construction project, which began June 25, is completed and Highway 60 is now open to traffic.

Town Talk II

The Highway 60 construction project was finished this week and the highway is now re-opened. The city and the Economic Development Corporation plan to landscape the area by the post office adjacent to the right turn lane. They hope to install an electronic sign to be used as a 'welcome to Friona' message center.


The Country Market Arts & Craft Show is going on this weekend at the community center. Lots of vendors have signed up. There will be a fashion show by Mayra Chico, a quilting machine demonstration sponsored by Malouf's and my favorite part, Canna Ray's food available in the concession stand.

Squaws move on to the playoffs
From Coach Bryan Masse

On Saturday the Squaws traveled to Tulia to face off with the Lady Hornets.

The C team started things off with a hard fought three game win, having to come from behind to pull out the win. The JV had their way with the Hornets and used good serving, passing, setting and hitting for a 2-0 sweep. (more...)
