Work Is Under Way At Sudan Pump Station
Thursday, July 30, 2015
The City of Lubbock expects to have a more consistent product as a result of the work currently underway at the Sudan Pumping Station located east of Muleshoe on Hwy. 84., in Bailey County.

The pumping station, recognized most readily because the large metal geodesic dome over its reservoir, is in the process of improving its sterilization process by switching from a gaseous process to a liquid process, according to Curtis McDole of Lubbock’s Water Treatment Department.

Beginning about a month ago, and expected to reach substantial completion in October of this year when the new process can be placed in operation, and final completion April 2016, the project is expected to resolve the problems it’s been having with its chlorine residual as the water it produces is pumped to homes and businesses in Lubbock.

MISD To Focus On ‘Growth’
Thursday, July 30, 2015
Muleshoe Independent School District Director of Operations Dani Heathington talked about the district’s change from a focus on passing to one of “growth” during the school board’s first reading of the district’s action plan at Monday’s regular meeting.

At Superintendent Dr. R.L. Richards’ suggestion, Heathington explained that the change — which was the final item noted in the action plan developed by the district administrators and board members in an all-day meeting in June, would impact the students in grades three through eighth most.

“We have to start looking at growth,” she said. “It’s not just pass or fail now.”

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.
