MY PERSPECTIVE, Gary Damron   This summer will be a milestone wedding anniversary, so my wife and I have booked a trip to Israel to celebrate. That started me on a “Jesus Journey” study several months back, looking at sites in the Holy Land and finally settling in with the Book of...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, Reita Isaacs, Liberal   I lived in Liberal all my life, and except for six years on Baughman Ie lived within seven blocks of where I grew up. During all these years, I’ve watched form when people took pride in their homes, yards and streets. My parents and...

GUEST COLUMN, Walter V. Wendler, President of West Texas A&M   As the new year begins, scores of students and their families will make choices about where to study next fall. Affordability, location and degree offerings should be serious considerations. No one should ever say, “It is...
