MAHD To Consider Leasing Hospital To Preferred
Thursday, October 30, 2014
The Muleshoe Area Hospital District’s board of directors appointed a committee to examine the possibility of leasing Muleshoe Area Medical Center to Preferred Management Corporation during Thursday’s regular session.

Currently, the hospital district has a management agreement with the Oklahoma-based company through which the hospital’s interim administrator, Bill Buck, is provided.

Firefighters Respond
Thursday, October 30, 2014
The Muleshoe Volunteer Fire Department responded to a double vehicle fire on Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the 100 Block of East Ave. B., behind the building that formerly housed Bratchers’ Auto Parts.

According to Police Lt. Benny Parker, the fire appeared to have started in an RV owned by Benito Cruz, and spread to a van parked next to it.

Although the cause of the fire has yet to be determined, according to the police lieutenant, it may have been caused by a small portable space heater on the west side of the RV.
