Muleshoe Man Arrested In Recent Drug Raid
Thursday, December 11, 2014
A Muleshoe man was arrested and is being held on a $48,000 bond in the Bailey County Law Enforcement Center after a late night drug raid by local law enforcement officers netted a large amount of drugs, cash and guns.

More than a kilogram or 2.2 pounds of marijuana, approximately a quarter pound of crack cocaine, more than $1,200 in cash and two firearms were seized in a raid by the Bailey County Sheriff’s Department, the Muleshoe Police Department and a district attorney’s investigator shortly before midnight on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 301 E. Chicago in Muleshoe.

According to Sheriff Richard Wills, the raid, seizure and arrest came after a lengthy investigation — another of several successful investigations that local law enforcement officers have conducted in recent months.

Regarding the Dec. 4 raid, there were several individuals at the “drug house” at the time the officers arrived with search warrant in hand, according to the sheriff, but only one arrest was made — Alex Martinez, 18.

At the board’s Oct. 23 meeting, a committee was appointed to explore a lease with the company. Previously, the board had contracted with Preferred for management services. Following that action, Preferred brought in Bill Buck to serve as the hospital’s interim administrative officer and the district’s CEO.

Timothy’s Christmas Journey
Thursday, December 11, 2014
Part 3 of the serial Christmas story in the Muleshoe Journal

Timothy thought about his problem as he rode alongside Enoch the next morning. Along with the question he’d raised with Arariel were even more questions about the upcoming event, and especially the reason for the event.

The idea that the second person of the Trinity was going to enter the world by being born puzzled him, and the thought that these men with whom he traveled recognized that a special birth was taking place, and yet didn’t understand how truly special this birth was amazed him.

And mixed within the questions and puzzles that assailed him was this inclusion of the funeral spice Myrrh, and the thought that somehow it must have something to do with the purpose of the Son’s incarnation.
