Town Talk II

That was rain we saw Saturday night. Didn’t recognize it at first. The WT Services weather info says it was 0.19”. The rain caused a slick highway and a semi- rollover about 8:30 p.m. Saturday west of town near Cargill. A husband and wife team were extracted by our volunteer firemen after they cut out the front windshield. Friona EMS transported them to the hospital. The volunteer firemen were called to two grass fires last week. Let’s hope for a lot more rain.


Loyal Leal’s fans might be happy to know that the popular Mexican Restaurant has opened a Leal’s in Littlefield at 601 Waylon Jennings Blvd., so says an ad in the Littlefield newspaper. Now trips to Littlefield don’t necessarily require a stop in Muleshoe. (more...)

Cancer Coalition 'Walk for a Cure'

The Parmer County Cancer Coalition (PCCC) will get back to basics with a “Walk for a Cure”, Saturday June 7, 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the Friona high school track. The event will be similar to the former Relay for Life that were held in years past. All funds stay in Parmer County providing grant money to Parmer County residents undergoing cancer treatments.

There will be some distinct changes from the ‘Relay’ format. Walking for cancer is the goal and focus to raise money to assist our cancer patients. This will be an individual event rather than teams. The cost to participate is by donation. The amount is up to the participant. (more...)
