Mike Hill announces candidacy for Pct. 4

By JOE GONZALES

 

Mike Hill will quickly and easily tell you why he feels he’s qualified to be the next Lamb County Commissioner for Precinct 4.

 

“I feel like I’m the kind of guy that will get things done,” said Hill. “I’m not a talker, I’m a doer. I feel like I let my actions speak more for me than my words.” Hill has been a member of Sudan Fire/EMS since 1981 and has served as chief for numerous years. He also looks to the confidence others have in his abilities as a plus for Precinct 4. “Several years ago, when Judge Thompson was still our County Judge, the county had an issue come up where the City of Littlefield could not continue to respond to rural fires at the current compensation for response,” said Hill.

Fresh from the water...

By JOE GONZALES

 

As you make your way through the produce section at Food King, you won’t’ have trouble finding a wide array of fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from. But, Rob Ybarra, Marketing Director for Lowe’s Supermarkets said they wanted to find a way to provide even better varieties of products for their customers.

 

Because of this, Food King is now carrying some vegetables from Primal Gardens out of Seminole. What’s so special about this place, well, it’s how they grow their vegetables. Primal Gardens uses aquaponics to grow all their produce items. Geoff Gray said aquaponics is the marriage between aquaculture and hydroponics. “Aquaculture is the raising of fish,” said Gray. “Hydroponics is raising plants with nutrient water.”
