$1792.00 in donations. This money is used to
help with our expenses in' 2007.
Memorial donations made to the library are
used to purchase new books. We invite you to
visit the -library and check out our best sellers.
We checked out 3713 books during 2006. We
ordered 60 froin the Inter-Library loan program.
If we do not have a book the patron would like to
read, we can order the book from Malion Library
in Lubbock, if they do not have the book, they
request it over the Internet, and whichever library
has the book, it is sent to our library from anywhere in the U.S. There is no cost to you to use
this service. If Lubbock has the book, I will receive it about a week after my request has been
made. If ordered from another library', it takes
several days to reach us.

Do you ever feel like. you know.
you've lost that certain spark'? Well.
now you can get it back -- 50.000
volts' worth. The latest fun activity
in Las Vegas'? Getting Tasered.
That's right. people recently lined
up at the Consumer Electronics Show
in Las Vegas for the opportunity to
be Tasered.
Here's a description of the fun
you've been missing. courtesy of the
"Las Vegas Sun:" "When [Adam]
Devlin is stunned. however. his legs
lock rigid and his back keels. stiff as
a plank, to the floor. There. on convention hall ground. Devlin rocks
from side to side for a few seconds
and then gets up. stunned." And the
best part, it's free I I'm afraid I wouldn't be a good candidate because,
frankly, I was stunned just reading
The article also helpfully mentions
that Metro Police reported just 'three
in-custody deaths tor 2006. Only
three deaths! So your odds are pretty
It doesn't say how maJ~y people
were Tasered in-custody and didn't
die. but I'm guessing it's lots and'iots.
So go ahead; enjoy yourself.
Still I'm wondering. is this the kind
of no-holds-barred fun they're talking
when they slyly say, "What happens
in Vegas. stays in Vegas"?
I guess I'm behind the times. I al- '
ways assumed they were referring to
good old-fashioned sin and debauchery -- like eating potato chips and ice
,cream in bed at 3 a.m. while watching "Nip/Tuck" rerLms.
Generally, when planning a vacation. 1 don't think to myself, "Where
is the best place to be tortured?"
Which brings up the question, which
Web sites offer the best vacationtorture deals? Or, to save money,
should family members stay hOlne
. and torture each other? But the new
