A Look Through Lindy's Window

I have seen many weddings, but never have I witnessed a wedding such as my son, Shawn, and Minna’s this past Friday night at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel in Downtown Las Vegas. We all gathered in the lobby at the
Treasure Island Hotel waiting to be transported to the venue

The Richland Springs Report

We were able to enjoy a few days of warmth on Friday and Saturday, but then came Sunday. While we need the moisture, I wasn’t thrilled by the sleet that whitened my driveway. It was 33 degrees at noon, so I knew it was not going to be pretty by morning. I’m afraid Glen will not be going for a walk today. It remains to be seen if school will be in session tomorrow. If the pattern follows its usual path, the moisture should pass us by and just leave us cold and dry. I hope not; we need the rain.

The Bend News

By Jo Price.
 
The big question on everyone’s mind is where and when is the Global Warming going to take place? The folks up north and northeast would certainly like to know that answer as they have had their share and more of bad cold weather and still getting hit hard again this week, and to make bad matters worse there is a shortage of propane. Here it has been warm for a couple of days and then wham wake up to cold and windy weather.

Elm Grove Echoes

By Rhonda Wyatt.
 
There is still just dust and spider webs to report in the old rain gauge. The wind is howling today, perhaps it will bring some moisture to our dry lands. June Beakley of the Elm Grove community let me know that her brother, Sidney ( Speedy) Holland, of Blanket passed away. Mr. Holland was a graduate of Richland Springs. Prayers go out to the family in this difficult time.

Letter to the Editor

I want to publicly compliment the city employees that painstakingly lighted our park and decorated our streets. I had outof- town guests several times and they were so impressed, as was I, at the way our town was decked
out for Christmas. The dollar tacked on to our utility bill was a voluntary fee for lights. Anyone not wishing to contribute has only to contact City Hall.

The Bend News

By Jo Price

The cold weather is about the biggest topic of the day. The low of 20 degrees was felt Monday, but no wind which helped. Saturday was a different story wind and down in the 40’s, but felt a lot colder than that. According
to the weather report a warming trend will start Tuesday and continue on for the rest of the week. Think everyone is ready for some warmer weather for a while. The lack of pecans, acorns and mesquite beans is usually a sign that the winter weather will be a mild one, but so far that hasn’t been the case. Sometimes even mother nature can be fooled

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

Likelihood is great that airlines of the world—most of them maligned by flustered flyers venting their feelings when flights go awry—owe much gratitude to a single member of their flock. WestJet, a Canadian airline, has become a social media darling with a “feel good” Christmas video that has rocketed far to the right of “viral” on YouTube and other Internet  sites.

LoneStarGeek Speaks

By Steven McDowell

While using a can of compressed air to blow dust bunnies out of your computer is good routine maintenance, that’s not what I mean by keeping your computer clean. In the last column, I mentioned malware, and touched on the
topic of its removal, but that is only part of keeping your system clean.
