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.

SERVING THANKSGIVING PLATES

There were 1,223+ plates sold, including carry-outs. Those who didn’t eat there, took theirs with them to eat elsewhere. A long line of hungry people were waiting when the doors to the food line were opened shortly before 11 a.m. Here, plates were being filled with German Sausage, turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, sauerkraut, and fresh-made bread. A wide variety of desserts was available, next to the iced tea and water to drink with the meal. There was another long line of people who purchased their carry-out plates. Before the serving line was opened, another huge order was filled at this table for gins that ordered plates for their employees for the day.
