Beating the Heat...
Texline graduates
11 seniors
exline had eleven graduates walk across the
stage last Friday, which is
about an average class size
for the small 1A school.
Although graduating high
school is a great accomplishment, it is not a stopping point, but rather the
first step toward success,
as the salutatorian, Emily
Lobley, pointed out.
high school is
an accomplishment,”
said, “but not
the best we can
do.” The valedictorian, Kimberly Cantrell,
advised the graduates to be
themselves and to be crazy
enough to dream big and
then go after those dreams.
“I will leave you with a
quote of my own,” she said
in her closing remarks,
“Today you are you, that is
truer than true: no one will
ever be crazy as you.”
The speaker, Tasha Yarborough, was the senior
class’s junior high English
teacher who now works at
Boys Ranch. She told the
students that what they

that was indeed important,
but rather how to persevere
through difficulties and
apathy. “You’ve gotten the
main event pretty well,”
she told her former students, “and you’re ready
for life after graduation.”
The ceremony also involved a slideshow of pictures of the senior class
throughout their lives.
During the slideshow, the
seniors handed flowers to
people who had made an
impact on them
throughout their
school careers,
such as parents, siblings,
friends, mentors, and favorite teachers.
There were
more than a
few teary eyes
as the seniors
gave out flowers and hugs in equal
measure. Just before the
ceremony closed with the
school song, Gary Laramore, the superintendent,
recognized those who had
earned awards and scholarships. Among those recognized were Kimberly

Daughters of the American
Revolution Award as well
as several scholarships,
and Emily Lobley, who
was the recipient of one

The problems of wind and

(which was the reason for
the creation of the TSSWCB and SWCDS in Texas
as well as in other states)
caused great land devastation in Texas and throughout the Great Plains region

that was coupled with severe wind-driven soil erosion of overgrazed range-

Faith & Religion
What is a Christian?
Jeff Mize
First Christian Church
What is a Christian? I assume most of
us know that not everyone who attends
church is a Christian. Some prefer to describe themselves as a disciple of Jesus, or
a follower of Christ. Those terms are a bit
more descriptive, but what does it mean to
be a disciple or follower of Jesus Christ?
What is a Christian?
A Christian believes in Jesus
Christ. No Bible author wrote about
this more than John. He opens his
gospel stating, “But to all who did
receive him, who believed in his
name, he gave the right to become
children of God (John 1:12)...”
Toward the end, speaking of the
miraculous works of Jesus that he
recorded in his account, John says,
“these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Christ, the
Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name
(John 20:31).” And in between,
some form of the word “believe”
appears 81 times, mostly in statements by Jesus, including the well
known and often quoted John 3:16.
John also talks about believing in
Jesus in his epistle. “Everyone who
believes that Jesus is the Christ has
been born of God...I write these
things to you who believe in the
name of the Son of God that you
may know that you have eternal
life (1 John 5:1, 13).”
Paul likewise emphasizes the
importance of believing the truth
about Jesus. Speaking of the good
news about Jesus, Paul proclaims
in Romans 1:16, “For I am not
ashamed of the gospel, for it is the
power of God for salvation to everyone who believes...” In 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Paul writes, “For
I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that
Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he
was buried, that he was raised on
the third day in accordance with the
The belief both John and Paul
espouse is more than just intellectual assent. A Christian does not
simply believe facts about Jesus, a
Christian obeys Jesus Christ. Being
a Christian is about what you believe and what you do. Jesus said,
“If you love me, you will keep my
commandments (John 14:15).”
Later in the same conversation with
his disciples, Jesus reminds them
of the most important commandment they were to keep. “This is
my commandment, that you love
one another as I have loved you
(John 15:12).” How did Jesus love
his disciples? He gave up his life
for them. Love gives, love acts,
love does. Jesus makes it very clear
in Matthew 25:31-46 that his true
followers are those who show their
love for Him by doing for others. It
is a powerful passage. Why don’t
you put this down and read it now?
A Christian does not only believe
and obey Jesus, a Christian knows
Jesus Christ. In his Sermon on the
Mount, Jesus makes the sobering
statement that “not everyone who
says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven...” He
says there will be some on the day
of judgment who will claim to have
done “many mighty works in your
name.” But Jesus will declare to
them, “I never knew you; depart
from be, you workers of lawlessness.” (Matthew 7:21-23)
Being a Christian about more than
what you believe and what you do;
it is about who you are - and who
you know. An authentic disciple
of Jesus is a child of God because
he knows Jesus personally. He has
a trusting, abiding relationship
with Christ. Jesus describes this
relationship in John 15: “I am the
vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he
it is that bears much fruit, for apart
from me you can do nothing...By
this my Father is glorified, that you
bear much fruit and so prove to be
my disciples (John 15:5, 8).”
Do you believe in Jesus? Do you
love Jesus by obeying his command to love others? And above
all, do you know Jesus? If you can
answer “yes” to these questions,
then you are a real Christian, an
authentic disciple and follower of
Jesus Christ.

Sheep Dog Award
Photo provided
On May 20, 2014 the Dalhart Police Department recognized four students that participated in the Ride Along Program throughout the
school year. Sgt. Eloy Duran and Officer Rudy Corrales were the officers that represented the Police Department in giving the recognition
awards. The four students recognized were Monica Knight, Berenice Anaya, Cesar Chavira, and Eric Greenstreet. In addition to recognizing the students, the Officers also awarded a plaque to the student whom they felt most embodied the spirit of a law enforcement officer.
The officers chose to name the award the “Sheep Dog Award” and the first recipient of the award was Eric Greenstreet. This award will
now be an annual award and the recipient will be voted on by the officers at the end of every school year.

history of the country were
occurring at that time,”
added Isom.
In his book The Worst
Hard Time, Timothy Egan
notes the horrendous cataclysmic forces of nature
which plagued the land
and people during the early
1930’s. This era of American and Texas history is
better known as the “Dust
Egan vividly describes
living conditions that existed in that era. “Dust
clouds boiled up, ten thousand feet or more in the
sky, and rolled like moving mountains and when
the dust fell, it penetrated
everything: hair, nose,
throat, kitchen, bedroom,
but the eeriest thing was
the darkness. People tied
themselves to ropes before
going to a barn just a few
hundred feet away from
the house for fear of being
lost in the blackness of the
swirling dust. Buildings,
fences, and farm implements were seen as all but
buried under the devastating effects of windblown
soils.” Egan goes on to say
that the storms had, “ferocity and density never
before seen and they came
to be known by many as
‘black blizzards.’”
“So, out of this chaos of
nature and economic depression the TSSWCB
and SWCDS were born. It
should be noted that since
the creation of the TSSWCB and organization of
local soil and water conservation districts we can
proudly say that the majority of Texas farmers,
ranchers and timber producers from one generation to the next for the past
75 years have voluntarily
and continuously entered
into working agreements
with their local SWCDS to
implement a soil and water conservation program
on their farms and ranches
to meet the changing conservation needs of every
acre on that property,” said
But the story didn’t begin
smoothly. It had a rocky
start until all the political
kinks were worked out.
When the first version of a
conservation law for Texas
came out the early movers
and shakers for such a law
found that it lacked stability and convinced then
Governor Jimmy Allred to
veto the bill which he did
in June, 1937. Their reasons for wanting the bill
vetoed was because the
law would automatically
establish soil conservation
districts on a county basis,
make the county commissioners court the governing body and called for a
portion of county taxes to
finance the program,” said
“What they wanted in law
was a farmer-rancher controlled program in which
local landowners would
determine whether a soil
conservation district was
needed. In addition, they
did not want a soil conservation district to have
taxing authority or powers
of eminent domain. A new
bill was written which
satisfied their concerns
and passed in 1939 by
the following legislature.
The rest is history,” added
Today the TSSWCB administers several key state
programs that provide
technical and financial assistance to landowners and
land managers who wish
to enter into a
From the Era of the Dust
Bowl to the Present: Commemorating 75 Years of
Soil and Water Conservation cooperative agreement
with local SWCDS to protect their natural resources. In addition, the success
of local voluntary conservation programs involves
partnerships. Though the
name has changed a few
times over the years, a key
partner working with the
TSSWCB and local SWCDS is the USDA Natural
Resources Conservation
NRCS employs people in numerous
occupational disciplines
including soil conservationists, rangeland management specialists, soil
biologists, engineers, geologists, engineers, and
foresters. Some federal
conservation financial assistance programs, enable
these experts to help landowners and land managers develop conservation
plans for crop, range, and
“Conservation practices
implemented on private
agricultural lands benefit
all citizens because implemented conservation
practices not only protect and improve soil resources, but insure a sustainable agriculture from
which come food products
and the raw commodities
which drive all aspects of
the economy. In addition,
conservation practices improve water quality, and
in some cases, enhance
water quantity, but public
benefits don’t end there.
Implemented conservation
practices also contribute
to cleaner air, improved
wildlife habitat, improved
rangeland as well as being
a factor to healthy and viable rural and urban communities,” Isom noted.
“The only reason the TSSWCB still exists 75 years
after its establishment is
because of the state’s soil
and water conservation
districts, and they in turn
exist because of the state’s
farmers and ranchers who
come to local SWCDS
for help in planning and
implementing conservation programs on private
lands. This diamond jubilee then is a celebration
of a success story that has
worked across the state
and across generations because it is based on local
control by those closest to
the issues,” said Isom.
Isom’s words certainly
reflect the philosophy of
V.C Marshall, considered
the “father of the conservation district program in
Texas” who is attributed
with saying, “The soil
conservation district is the
workshop through which
those who love the and
pool their efforts and information in making land
more stable and productive and our country more
prosperous, more attractive and a better land in
which to live. The fact that
landowners themselves
have the responsibility for
petitioning for and voting
in a district, formulating

Bowl to the Present: Commemorating 75 Years of
Soil and Water Conservation program and work
plan, administering its
business and entering into
cooperative agreements
with their fellow landowners and operators, makes
soil conservation districts
a democracy in action.”
Will the work of the
state’s 216 soil and water
conservation districts ever
be completed, and will the
soil and water conservation programs administered by the Texas State
Soil and Water Conservation Board ever be fully
achieved? Probably not.
Land ownership changes, or family land when
passed on through inheritance is cut into smaller
pieces of the pie accompanied with varying land
management objectives.
Then too, an ever changing political environment
coupled with ever chang-
ing climatic conditions
and agricultural technological advancements all
impact existing and future
soil and water conservation programs and practices that are implemented
on the land.
The late Raymond F. Dasmann, professor emeritus
of ecology at University
of California, Santa Cruz
added additional insight
as to why conservation of
natural resources is a perpetual process. He said,
“Most conservation problems exist on particular
pieces of ground occupied
or cared for by a particular
group of people. Attempts
to solve them at a global,
or even a national level,
often strike far from the
Thus the words of the
founding father of the
Texas Soil and Water
Conservation District Program” rings even truer....
“The fact that landowners
themselves have the responsibility for organizing
a local SWCD, formulating its program and plan
of work, administering its
business and entering into
cooperative agreements
with their fellow landowners and operators, makes
soil conservation districts
a democracy in action.”
The Texas State Soil
and Water Conservation
Board (TSSWCB) administers Texas’ soil and
water conservation law
and delivers coordinated
natural resource conservation programs through the
State’s 216 soil and water
conservation districts.
From the Era of the Dust
Bowl to the Present: Commemorating 75 Years of

Additionally, the TSSWCB is the lead agency for
planning, implementing,
and managing programs
for preventing and abating agricultural and silvicultural nonpoint sources
of water pollution. The
agency also administers
a water supply enhancement program through the
targeted control of waterdepleting brush.

good in the game. Their success continued on to the next
game as Read dominated
Midland Greenwood to the
tune of 22 points and seven
rebounds. She finished off
the season with a 26 point,
nine rebound performance
in the regional quarterfinals
against Shallowater. Read
was one of only two seniors
that graduated from the Lady
Wolves along with Maddy
Silacci. The Lady Wolves
return three of four starters
and will have Madison Sherrill and Katelyn Sybesma
step into the starting line-up
next season. Catherall loves
to get the ball into the low
post and he showed how that
could work when a player
like Read can dominate in
the middle.

the bride-elect are James and Martha Thompson and the late
Wade and Verna Kay Crist. Grandparents of the prospective
groom are Edgar and Delores Frerich and Bernie and Sue
Sneller and the late Glenda Sneller. The bride-elect is a 2009
graduate of Vega High School. She graduated from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Arts in 2013. She is employed with
Ward Insurance Agency of Canyon.The prospective groom is

self-employed as a farmer in Dalhart. The couple plans to wed
Aug. 23, 2014, in Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in
Chris and Michele LeFevre and Tom and Melissa McDonald
are proud to announce the engagement of their children, Brianne LeFevre of Plainview and Garth McDonald of Hartley.
Brianne was born and raised in Plainview, Texas. She graduated from Plainview High School in 2010 and continued her
education at West Texas A & M University where she and Garth
met. She graduated with honors from WTAMU in May 2014
with a degree in Elementary Education. She will be teaching
first grade at Green Acres Elementary, Dumas ISD, in the fall
of 2014. Garth was raised in the Dalhart/Hartley area. He
graduated from McDonald Christian School in 2009 and continued his education at West Texas A & M University where
he graduated in May 2013 with a degree in Ag Business and
Economics. He is an Associate Banker at Happy State Bank
in Dalhart. The Wedding will be at Walnut Tree Weddings on
June 28 in Olton, Texas. Loren Haper, minister of Comanche
Trail Church of Christ in Amarillo will be officiating. Brianne is
the granddaughter of Tex and Marilyn Edwards and Stanley
and Shirley LeFevre and the Mary Lou LeFevre all of Plainview, Texas. Garth is the grandson of Billie McDonald and the

hit a combined .494 with
10 home runs, 29 doubles
and 54 RBIs.
On the mound she was
24-14 with a sub .5 ERA
and 484 strikeouts.
She tossed multiple
no-hitters in 2014 including the one on the road
against Pampa where she
actually came out on the
losing side in a 1-0 game.
Halbert hit three home
runs in the bi-district
match-up between the
Lady Wolves and the Fil-
lies from Shallowater.
She also won the first
game, which was a 4-3
victory. She also hit two
home runs in that game.
She was the difference
in a couple games like that
during the year. In the first
tournament of the year in
Lubbock, she went 4-4 at
the plate with a home run
against the Lubbock Cooper Junior Varsity while
she tossed a no-hitter on
the mound.
It should also be noted
that before she made her
way into Dalhart, Halbert
won a state title in Oklahoma.
