Nursing Home Plans Are Encouraging
Thursday, October 01, 2015
The Muleshoe Area Hospital District’s board of directors approved the FY 2015-16 budget for Park View Nursing Care Center during its Thursday, Sept. 24, regular session after what can best be described as encouraging discussion with the nursing home’s administrator.

Initially talking about the budget report numbers, board president Allen Smyer noted that he liked the bottom line and the profit it showed for the facility. “We haven’t seen this in a long time,” he said.

Park View Administrator Jo Liatsos noted that the budget report was a “working budget” based upon a resident total of 50. Currently, Park View has 53 residents, Liatsos said, and expects additional residents in the next few days.

In other discussion about the budget, Park View’s administrator said, “I’m really strong about not spending money,” adding that since she had arrived she’s recognized several areas of savings.

Any horseman can tell you that a horsefly or wasp on an equine’s… well, backside can cause a bit of nervousness, and that’s no different when it’s a Yellow Jacket and a Mule.

Seal Coat Problems Discussed
Thursday, October 01, 2015
Dissatisfaction with the seal coating on the YL Road in Precinct 1, as well as similar work completed this year in Precinct 3 topped Monday’s meeting of the Bailey County Commissioners’ Court.

Precinct 1 Commissioner Butch Vandiver noted that sections of the surface appeared to have already lost the gravel placed upon it, suggesting that an insufficient amount of asphalt emulsion was used.

Vandiver, who said the project engineer had been contacted about the problems with the work, also reminded the other commissioners that the county was initially charged for a 26-foot right of way in YL Road, instead of the existing 20-foot.

‘Heavy Hitters’ To Speak At MISD Family Night
Thursday, October 01, 2015
The Muleshoe Independent School District has decided to go with “heavy hitters” for this year’s Title 1 Family Night on Tuesday, Oct. 6. Real “heavy hitters” to be exact… a total of nearly 600 pounds, an NFL and collegiate wall of flesh with something to say about achieving success when faced with adversity.

The program, set for 6-8 p.m. at the Muleshoe High School auditorium, will feature former New York Giant linebacker Keith Davis and former Georgetown University lineman Jonathan Medina.

Reportedly, Davis’ motto is “No matter what has happened in the first half of your life, we can all have a great second half,” and with his personal history there can be no truer words spoken.

Although Davis had glowing success during his collegiate years at the University of Southern California, where he was the team’s leading tackler and an All-Conference player, that gridiron success came to a screeching halt after he was signed by the New York Giants in 1988.

Bravery, Or Something Else
Thursday, October 01, 2015
The animal pictured on the right, for lack of a better word, “got the goat” of area drivers Sunday afternoon as it trotted north on Hwy. 214 near Rabbit Road, nearly causing a couple of traffic accidents in the process. At one point, it even faced down a southbound semi-tractor-trailer as it defiantly remained in the roadway forcing the merciful driver to drive left of center to continue on his way south.

Eventually, Muleshoe Mayor Cliff Black, pictured above driving the red pickup, convinced the animal to leave the roadway, and herded it to a point where the mayor and family members were able to catch the animal and lift it over a fence into an adjacent pasture.
