The City of Friona sponsored a Kid Fish event on Sunday, September 7 at Reeve Lake. Fishermen of all ages and from around the area practiced their casting skills during the overcast and drizzly afternoon. Chivalry is not dead. Zachary Mendoza, left, helped his cousin by removing the hook and holding up the fish that his cousin, Tiffany Martinez, right, caught. Zachary and Tiffany won trophies for their efforts. Results of Kid Fish are on page 10. Also pictured is Anahi Ramirez.

Town Talk II

Yessir it did rain Friday. All day. Everyone received from 2” to 3” according to reports. Cooler weather is also upon us. Almost jacket weather. The first day of fall is Monday September 22. Co-Op Gin manager Matt Lingle said the rain did not hurt cotton since we have a late crop but the cotton needs heat, 90 degrees and above, for a couple of weeks. Only one day this week was forecast to be in the 90s.

Mayor's Minutes

By Ricky White

I would like to thank and recognize the Public Works employees for the great work they have done at Reeve Lake trimming the trees and cutting out the dead limbs. Still have a little work to do, but the park is looking great. Also, the city has plans to install a water sprinkler system on the west side of the playground equipment. Getting more grass coverage will dress this area even more. I would encourage everyone to drive by the park and admire the work that has been done. (more...)
