Events Of Past Year Sparks Changes To Hospital District’s Insurance Policy
Thursday, February 04, 2016
The Muleshoe Area Hospital District’s board of directors approved an insurance policy through Sanford and Tatum of Lubbock that required a bit of adjustment compared to last year’s policy during its Jan. 28 meeting.

As Michael Tatum worked his way through the insurance policy presentation it was evident that events from the past year required adjustments in the policy’s coverage and premium.

One such change was the removal of the ambulance building. In 2015, ownership of the building that has housed Bailey County EMS was transferred to Bailey County in exchange for “in-kind” labor which included the demolition and removal of a building and the construction of a parking lot at the same location.

‘Open Carry’ Meeting Draws Light Attendance
Thursday, February 04, 2016
Only 17 members of the public availed themselves of the informational meeting over changes in the state’s open and concealed firearms laws on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

The event, which was hosted at the Bailey County Coliseum by Sheriff Richard Wills and Muleshoe Police Chief Roy Rice, was intended to provide information about the requirements for “license to carry” holders and local merchants concerning the posting of Sec. 30.06 (prohibiting concealed carry of a firearm) and Sec. 30.07 (prohibiting open carry of a firearm) on private property, and the limitations of such carry in government facilities.

Mules Fail In Bobcat Battle, 56-46
Thursday, February 04, 2016
“We just couldn’t stand prosperity,” said Mule basketball coach Clay White shortly after the Dimmitt Bobcats defeated the Mules 56-46 Friday night.

The Mules had defeated the predicted district champion Shallowater Mustangs 38-36 Tuesday night.

The Mules seemed a bit intimidated by Shallowater in the first quarter. Danny Campos was four-for-four from the charity line and Dagen Dunham drained a 3-pointer from the corner.

Those were the Mules only first quarter points and the Mustangs led 12-7 after one quarter.

The Mules returned the favor in the second period to tie the game at 19-19 at the half.
