An inch of rain was received over a couple of days this past week. It was a slow gentle rain that soaked in with no run off. If everything goes as predicated we will be having some Spring like weather this week. The warm weather after the severe cold will be very welcome.
Jolene Lively wasn’t as injured as first reported. She did not have a broken arm, just a severely twisted wrist and her hip was not broken as badly as was first reported. She is at the Lampasas Nursing home in Lampasas receiving therapy to help her get back home.
Dillon Brister just completed another successful year competing each month with the Lampasas Riding Club Highpoint series, where the points are accumulated throughout the year. He won 2nd place in the 6 and under peewee age groups. An awards banquet was held Saturday, January 16, in Lampasas where he was presented his second buckle. It was hard to tell who was the proudest Dillon or his parent’s Michael and Gennifer. It is thought that Dillon will have a bright rodeo career ahead of him.
