Cody West announces candidacy for JP, Pct. 3

By JOE GONZALES

Cody West announced to the Lamb County Leader-News his intent to run for Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 of Lamb County. West, who is running on the Republican ticket, now joins Rick Zinn and Tim Walker in vying for the seat currently held and to be vacated by Judge Al Mann. West said he decided to run for JP because the job is something he’s familiar with.

“I was a JP in Reeves County from 2008 until 2011 and, was the sitting JP until my family and I moved to Littlefield when I decided to buy KZZN,” said West. “At that point, I was so excited about owning my own radio station, and because of that, all the things I worked for where we used to live (Pecos) didn’t seem as important as moving to Littlefield and start a new chapter in our lives. Since moving here, West said he’s never regretted the move, because he’s enjoyed everything about Littlefield.

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.

By JOE GONZALES

During his 22 years and nine months with the Lubbock Police Department, Steve Farley worked many different positions and roles. Farley retired in March from the Lubbock PD, and it didn’t take him long to find another role in law enforcement. But this time, it’s with the Littlefield Police Department. The new detective was sworn in Nov., 17th, and began his first full week this past Monday.

“So far, things have been great,” said Farley. “There are a lot of different things I need to get used to...just the way things are done and how the process works here at the Littlefield Police Department. But I’ve enjoyed it.”
