There was an 'adult challenge' at the Friona Livestock Show. It cost $10 to nominate an adult to show an animal. It was all in fun and a fundraiser for the local FFA program. Erin Barnett accepted the challenge in colorful style as she tries to dazzle Judge Scotty Wright with her barrow entry not exactly in traditional stock show form. Mrs. Barnett and her pig were a crowd pleasing duo.
Town Talk II
At Tuesday night's basketball games Tonya Lookingbill was the winner of the iPad raffle sponsored by the volleyball boosters.
It took FHS senior Brandon Berend three tries but he managed to putt a golf ball across the gym floor and stop it on a mat at the other end and win $100 courtesy of AgTexas. Fans can buy a ticket for $1.00 and a chance to putt during the halftime of the boys game. A couple of years ago I bought a ticket but I didn't want to putt so I put Clint Mears Name on the ticket. They drew his name, he putted, and won $100. My luck hasn't changed much.
Hospital to take over Prairie Acres/Heritage
The Hospital District board of directors voted to proceed with plans to take over the ownership and management of Prairie Acres Nursing Home and Friona Heritage Estates assisted living facility.
Prairie Acres and Heritage Estates have always been owned by the City of Friona. For several years the city has wanted to divest itself of the two facilities. Talks have been ongoing with the hospital district to assume management and operation of the properties.
