A Free Family Event You Do Not Want To Miss In Andrews, Texas!
It is almost that time of year to make the short drive to my hometown for a full day of family fun! I'm always happy to share the exciting event that is Wild, Wild West Fest. It has grown considerably in the last few years, mainly because more people are finding out about it and many of our neighbors from all over West Texas are coming to be a part of this 2-day event every year.

Then I started receiving text messages like the one you see in the photo. There were plenty of concerned citizens who had opinions on the matter. As is their absolute right. Well that was some time ago and from what I understand, a decisio

2020 Graduates Get Their Own Graduation Ceremony This Year And 2021 Graduation Schedule
I think we can all still agree that last year was an unprecedented year. When you hear anyone talk about 2020, you always hear, 'it was a weird year' to say the least.
