Gonzales Receives 25 Year Sentence
Wednesday, November 25, 2015
The 25-year sentence of a Muleshoe resident for the manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance of methamphetamine is a “fair” sentence, according to Dist. Attorney Kathryn Gurley, who along with local law enforcement officers have work to get a habitual criminal off the streets for several years.

On May 29, 2014, Bailey County deputies and Muleshoe Police Department officers served a search warrant at 1511 W. Ave. B, the residence of Raul “Rudy” Gonzales, Jr., 47, which at the time was described as the culmination of a two year investigation into Gonzales’ suspected drug activities.

A significant element of the arrest and subsequent charge was that the residence was located half a block from a daycare center and three blocks from Muleshoe’s West City Park, placing it in a “drug-free zone” that heightens the penalty under Texas law.

At the time of the raid, two individuals were present — Gonzales and Paula Griego, both of whom were in the garage at the back of the residence.

The Christmas Angel
Wednesday, November 25, 2015
(As it has done in previous years, the Muleshoe Journal will be running a serial Christmas story beginning this week and concluding in the Christmas issue. It is the hope of the newspaper staff that you will enjoy this year’s story and share it with your children and grandchildren.)

Part 1

The night wind was brisk as it blew across the meadow. Although not cold enough to make a coat necessary, there was a definite hint that it wouldn’t be too long before one was.

In the distance, a night bird sang out, joining its voice to the chirping of the field crickets. Then, as a small figure stepped from the trees lining the far side of the meadow, there was a cascade of silence. The crickets no longer chirped, the night bird held its tongue, even the wind seemed to fall away, silencing the murmur rustle of the leaves.

The small figure took another step into the meadow, glancing about hesitantly, detectable primarily by motion due to the shadows which still surrounded it. A third step brought it into the moonlight for the first time.
