Town Talk II

Monday and Tuesday we had what could be described as heavy downpours but no hail included. Official weather guy John Gurley reports 2.83" total. Sunday night .33", Monday 2.12", and Tuesday .38". Lots of rain, up to 11" down south at Lubbock, Seagraves, Post, etc. Big rains caused some flooding in Clovis too.

Well so far this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, National Small Business Week, National Hospital Week, and National Corrections Officers Week. So thanks to all of our teachers (listed in the ad in this week's Star), thanks to all of our corrections officers at the Parmer Detention Center in Farwell (otherwise known as the county jail), and thanks to our local small businesses that keep our town humming along. We say thanks and are thankful for our top notch Parmer Medical Center hospital. What a great facility for our little town.
