Main Street and Hwy. 60 turned into a miniature Reeve Lake during the recent rains. There were reports of at least one unlucky motorist taking an unexpected plunge in the deep water. A TxDOT contractor crew has been busy grinding away on the south side of Hwy 60 from Washington to Summit in preparation to pour concrete on that stretch of highway. The intersection of Hwy 60 and Main, plus restricted access to Euclid and Cleveland have caused folks to find alternate creative routes to move about town. After the south side is finished the workers will move to the north side of Hwy 60. The job is expected to take four months or longer.

Fishermen were trying out the water at Reeve Lake recently while ducks and geese enjoyed the cool shaded watering hole. Mark your calendars for Sunday July 13 to take the kids fishing at Reeve Lake. The Friona Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) is sponsoring a Kid Fish day from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for various age groups. Fishing gear and bait will be furnished free or bring your own. Kids will need to register to be eligible for prizes. Small kids need to be accompanied by an adult. It’s all free so come enjoy an afternoon with the kids.

Town Talk II

Flood is not a word we hear around here very often. Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning Friona received over 2” of steady rainfall. The weather service reported almost 6” fell in Bovina. Low areas of Hwy 214 and Hwy 60 were flooded. Law enforcement and the wrecker service were kept busy pulling people’s vehicles out of low areas which flooded. The road construction project on Hwy 60 in Friona has ground to a halt. The south side of Hwy 60 where they are grading out the asphalt looked a lot like Reeve Lake Wednesday morning. It is great. Love those cloudy rainy days.

Our volunteer firefighters have been running back and forth fighting hay fires at dairies. At 5:30 a.m. last Thursday Friona firemen were dispatched to Del Rio Dairy. Later that same day, at 8:30 p.m., they were called to A-Tex Dairy. Later in the week they were called back to both dairies again. Bovina and Farwell firefighters were called over the weekend to a hay fire in the southwest part of the county. Hay fires are a menace and almost impossible to fully extinguish. Thank you to our volunteer firemen for your continued dedication to protecting the citizens of the county. (more...)
