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.

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.

Mules Control Game From First
Friday, October 02, 2015
The long trip to Kermit did not seem to slow the Mules down when they hit Walton Field to play the Yellow Jackets. The Mules had the game in control after just one period, leading 19-0.

“I was glad to see us play a complete game tonight,” said Mule coach David Wood. “It seems like we have tended to bog down on offense or defense after the half. But tonight we continued to play well on both sides of the ball.”

The Mules received the opening kick and returned the ball to the Mule 18. The Mules marched to the Kermit 43 in four plays. Danny Campos tossed a wide-receiver screen to Tre Villa.

Bryce Mauricio and Dagen Dunham opened the gate with blocks for Villa and he galloped 43 yards to pay dirt. Dunham centered the ball to Tony Vasquez behind a wall of Mule blockers in the Swinging Gate. Vasquez headed to the outside and was cut off. He reversed his field to score the two-point conversion.
