By DEREK LOPEZ

There will be a Motorcycle run on Sunday, July 9th, to help benefit Littlefield native, Dan Foley’s medical fund.

John Roley’s AutoCenter is conducting a food drive to benefit the Lamb County food distribution through the South Plains Food Bank. The effort is part of a nationwide food drive being sponsored by Chevrolet dealers. The goal in Littlefield is to fill the bed of a Silverado pickup with the food collected this month.

Roley’s AutoCenter recently began accepting food donations, with an effort to curb hunger in children, who are out of school for the summer. Anyone wishing to donate non-perishable or canned foods may take the donations during the whole month of June, to John Roley’s AutoCenter, and place it in the back of a new pickup truck. When the truck is filled, the food will be donated to the South Plains Food Bank, to assist hungry people in this area. Cash donations will be used to purchase food items that are needed, which are not donated. Go by and donate from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday.

Guardians of Old Glory retires torn up American Flags

RESTORING PATRIOTISM ONE FLAG AT A TIME – There’s no real legal way to dispose of a flag. This is the proper way that most people see to do it; some people cut the stars out some don’t. It can not be use anymore as a flag, once you burn it’s gone. To me it kind of symbolizes the cremation of a body, you can’t use it anymore. No one can stomp on it. We’ve been doing this for about two years and the first flag we did as Guardians of Old Glory was the flag at the little league baseball field.
