Freezing weather hits County again

Robert Baker and Garet Gallenmore of Lubbock, sub-contractors with Fortenberry Roofing, were sweeping up the sidewalk in front of the Littlefield Post Office Wednesday. They had removed bricks from the wall where a car had driven into it on Oct. 18, and pushed the wall inward a few inches. The inside wall was replaced, and the outside wall was taped off for foot traffic to go around it. The new bricks are expected to come in a week from Monday, when they will replace the damaged ones, shown on the trailer.
