It was an expensive nap. Thursday February 6 about 9:30 p.m. a truck driver eastbound on Hwy 60 fell asleep, ran off the roadway and crashed into this Case 350 tractor at Parmer County Implement Company west of Friona. The semi- tractor was not pulling a trailer. The Case tractor was facing the highway and the impact spun it around facing the opposite direction, causing extensive damage. According to Parmer County Implement owner Bob Hurst the Case 350 is valued at well over $250,000. Friona firefighters, Sheriff deputies, and DPS worked the accident.

Mayor's Minutes

I wanted to communicate this month some projects that the city will be completing this fiscal year.

I mentioned last month the 1,000,000-gallon water tank, located northeast of Friona is in need of repair. The top of the tank will be replaced and the inside of the tank to be repaired and repainted. This project will begin on February 17 and will be completed in approximately 6 weeks, depending upon the weather. The cost of this project will be approximately $445,000. (more...)

Chiefs beat Muleshoe 63-58

The Chieftains closed out the basketball season with a home victory over the archrival Muleshoe Mules. The game had no playoff implications for either team. The Chiefs missed the playoffs but the Muleshoe match was for pride.

Led by Cole Stowers’ 23 points, the Chiefs outscored the Mules 38 to 33 in the 2nd half to beat the playoff bound Mules 63-58. The Chiefs were 20 of 38 from the free throw line. (more...)
