WE LOVE OUR SCHOOL DAY

This past Wednesday, Littlefield Primary held “We Love Our School Day”. Over the Thanksgiving Holiday, parents were asked to come together with their children and show their support for all the special people at Littlefield Primary that work hard to make each day a wonderful learning environment for primary students. Parents and students were asked to write a note, make a poster to show the faculty their appreciation. Students were given small red paper hearts and asked to write a small note of appreciation.

Those hearts were then given to staff as a surprise during their staff meeting held that Wednesday afternoon. Shown are students from Mrs. Miles’ first-grade class with some posters and hearts that were to be given to faculty later that afternoon

County’s gins have ginned 110,010 bales

By JOELLA LOVVORN

 

The six cotton gins in Lamb County have ginned a combined total of 110,010 bales, as of Tuesday morning, Nov. 28, 2017. A week ago, Tuesday, Nov. 21, they had ginned 79,127 bales, so their gins are still humming.

 

All of them are continuing to run around the clock. Some allowed their employees time off for the Thanksgiving holiday, to enjoy their families. The “Go-Get-’em” trucks may be seen on the highways in all areas of Lamb County, as they pick up modules from the fields and take them to the gins. There are a few areas where the cotton didn’t experience the proper maturity, and need to have Mother Nature defoliate it, before harvesters can go in.

DA’s donation helps Littlefield PD officers

By JOE GONZALES

Monday morning, the Lamb County District Attorney’s Office made a $5,000 donation to the Littlefield Police Department.

Littlefield Chief of Police Ross Hester said the money was going to be used to help purchase nine ballistic vests for officers on patrol.

Hester said his department was grateful for the donation because it will enhance his officers’ safety immensely.

“The youngest vest we have right now is fifteen years old,” said Hester. “These vests, that are Kevlar based, have a life span from five to six years, depending on the manner that they’ve been used, how roughly they’ve been treated and if they stopped rounds before.”
