County firefighters respond to numerous grass fires Tuesday

June 29, 2011

Tuesday night’s thunderstorms that rumbled across most of Texas County brought with them some much-needed rain. But the numerous cloud-to-ground lightning strikes created a headache for county firefighters, who responded to numerous grass fires from one end of the county to the other.

Residents, authorities upset over fireworks stand in Guymon

June 29, 2011

With the extreme drought conditions still gripping the Oklahoma Panhandle, county and city officials have taken drastic steps to make sure life and property are kept safe. And with the Independence Day holiday approaching, the danger is made even worse by the use of fireworks.
Texas County has made discharging fireworks illegal. The City of Guymon has done the same, but added a twist. A resolution in early June made the sale of fireworks illegal in the Guymon city limits.
That fact has many wondering about a fireworks stand that was opened on Highway 3 near Country View Estates this week.

Major League Baseball needs to be fixed

June 27, 2011

It’s that dreaded time of the year again.

All forms of basketball have left the airwaves and football is still far on the horizon. Even hockey season is over, leaving only baseball and the occasional tennis or golf tournament to watch on television.

But with my recent increase in baseball viewing, I have come to a realization: Major League Baseball is facing a grim future.

While many other sports are seeing all-time highs in popularity, Major League Baseball doesn’t seem to be able to grab the same kind of attention in the 21st century, and fan support is wavering.

New face hopes to become familiar face

June 26, 2011

This week’s Guymon Daily Herald “Familiar Face” is Gary Holdeman.
Gary just moved to Guymon earlier in the month, but is already becoming familiar to many as the new Senior Pastor of Victory Memorial United Methodist Church.
Growing up, Gary said, “I actually wanted to serve my country in the military, I got to do it for six years and enjoyed it very much.”
In college, a career aptitude test revealed to Gary he was best suited to be a minister, a military officer or in law enforcement.

June 26, 2011

“With every action starts a chain reaction”
A simple “Pray for Rain” sign in a front yard turned into a group pray session. This drought has taken its toll on all of us, but one person is dead set on making a difference.
Bud Kiener of Hough started out by making a simple sign in his yard that states “Pray for Rain.” It’s nothing fancy with bright lights and all of that.
But it served its purpose.
