County Commissioner Accused Of Negligence
Thursday, June 25, 2015
Residents from Precinct 3 appeared before the Bailey County Commissioners’ Court Monday morning accusing Commissioner Joey Kindle of willful negligence in maintaining certain roads in his precinct and asking the other members of the court to assist in resolving the issue.

Michelle and Obie Standard, accompanied by Craig Kirby, appeared before the court and said a longstanding, 15-year, feud with Kindle was the reason roads west of FM 1731 and north of FM 298 weren’t being maintained.

Reportedly, the issue raised by the Standards was discussed with Kindle in a conference call with County Judge Sherry Harrison and County Attorney Jackie Claborn, at which time Kindle — the commissioner court’s president, asked for the issue to be placed on the agenda for Monday’s regular meeting; however, Kindle did not appear at the meeting, even though his accusers did.

Michelle Standard, reading from a prepared statement copies of which were supplied to those in attendance at Monday’s meeting including the Muleshoe Journal, said the problem with Kindle began about 15 years ago after he met with Grady Warren of Warren Farms in southwest Bailey County to discuss road conditions and had what was described as a “heated” meeting.

Additional July 4th Activities Announced
Thursday, June 25, 2015
Additional activities have been announced for this year’s Independence Day celebrations.

On July 4, along with the Muleshoe Journal’s hot dog eating contest, there will be a few no doubt who will be eating a little dirt at a “bull bash” to be held at the Dusty Rhodes Arena, beginning at 3 p.m.

The gate will open at 2 p.m., and the event will include mutton bustin’, freestyle bullfighting, and a sheep scramble.

Tickets are $8 for adults, and $4 for ages 6-12.

And for those who want something better to eat the Oneita Wagnon Senior Center will be serving a brisket lunch with all the trimmings for $10 beginning at 11 a.m.

For those craving a hotdog without the contest’s time restraints, Lowes Supermarket will be serving them at 25 cents each.

And the Muleshoe Ex-Students Association will host an all-school reunion on July 4 at the Bailey County Coliseum from 7 to 9 p.m., with a catered meal.

Sometimes, the biggest thrill comes from knowing what’s just ahead. That may be true from the instance pictured above, where an unidentified Muleshoe-area youth catches a little hang time after leaving the diving board at the Muleshoe Water Park on Thursday, June 18.

Lady Mule Softball Honored
Wednesday, June 03, 2015
The District 2-3A softball coaches met to chose the 2015 All-District Team. After the Lady Mules defeated the Shallowater Fillies twice in one week to claim the number one seed for the Texas State Softball Playoffs the Lady Mules received much more respect.

“We were so young when the season started,” said Lady Mule coach Erin White. “We knew we would have a lot of fun but they really came together behind the leadership provided by our seniors.”

“I am very proud of this team and how the other coaches took notice of what our girls could do. We will miss our three seniors but are looking forward to next season.”

The Lady Mules placed a total of nine players on the elite squad with seven being on the first team.
