A Cup of Joe...

By Joe Gonzales

Well folks, last week, Emma’s birthday was a success!

She had a great time, and got a lot of presents, one present she’s been begging us for, and some spending cash.

To start it off, her Aunt Stephanie, my sister, took her shopping, to a movie and out to eat.

Her other Aunt Corinna, kept her for a few days and did the same. Shopping, movie and dinner.

Annual football contest begins August 29th

Two-a-days are right around the corner in the state of Texas and with that comes the annual Lamb County Leader-News football contest.

The first week of the contest will include 10 high school football games and 10 college football games.

This year, I will try to stay more in this area for high school games and avoid games between teams from Texas, who travel out of state to play national games.

However, be prepared because the college slate, it is wide open, meaning, division I and II...every once in a while I may even creep into division III...but I don’t anticipate doing that very often.
