INN the NEWS

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Our grand lady, the Panhandle Inn, continues to capture worthy attention. Artist Larry Hilburn generously donated $1181.67 from sell of his art featured in the Square House Museum, and the Summerlee Foundation of Dallas has awarded the Panhandle Inn a $40,000 construction grant. All Phase I grants will be submitted by Jan. 1, 2015.
Strategic planning to solicit funds for Phase II from within the oil and gas industry is underway. Ernest Thompson had the Panhandle Inn built, and it is because of his contributions to the oil and gas industry that funds will be sought from this industry.
Ernest Thompson was a fascinating man of uncompromising character. The Carson County library has a copy of his biography, “Three Stars for the Colonel.” I would encourage adding it to your reading list. He is truly an American hero, he changed the course of history with his work and his legacy will be honored within the renovated Panhandle Inn. And…I CAN’T WAIT!!
SAVE THE INN! Julie Young

Blaze Coffee Memorial/Accident Awareness Blood Drive Approaching

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

The annual Blaze Coffee Memorial Blood Drive here in Panhandle is set for Saturday, Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Elementary School Cafeteria at 106 W. 9th Street. The Blood Drive will actually start on November 3 in the surrounding areas and at the Coffee Memorial Blood Center in Amarillo.
For the month of November, all the Blood Drives in the area will support the Blaze Coffee Memorial and Accident Awareness. Grey t-shirts with a special purple design will be given to donors outside of Panhandle.
In Panhandle, on November 8, donors will receive a purple t-shirt and pizza from Panther Pizza. A photo ID or Donor ID card is required, and those wishing to donate blood must be 17 years or older. Sixteen-year-olds may donate with a parent-signed consent form.
Human blood is essential to human life. It cannot be fabricated in a science lab. It must come from another human being. When you donate, you’re essentially saving a life.
Typically, one unit, which equals one pint, is drawn from each donor. The blood is collected in a sterile container, where it is provided with nutrition for the blood cells and prevented from clotting. It is stored at very low temperatures and tested for blood grouping antibody detection, various infections and recipient compatibility. One unit of blood is converted into packed cell volume, fresh frozen plasma, platelet concentrate, cryoprecipitate and granulocytes concentrate.
Most donors make whole blood donations, where the red blood cells, platelets and plasma are collected all together. Some donors opt to donate via apheresis, which is a process that separates the blood into these three groups. During this procedure, the platelets are removed from the blood as it travels through the apheresis machine, and then the remaining constituent goes back to the donor. Blood platelets are typically used for cancer, leukemia or transplant patients or those with blood disorders. Apheresis takes a little longer than the whole blood donation. There will be three apheresis machines at the Blood Drive on November 8.
Everyone that gave at the last local Blood Drive is now eligible to give again, because it only takes a couple of months for the hemoglobin and cell components to be restored and loyal repeat donors are greatly appreciated.
There have been as many as 150 units donated in a single Blood Drive. It would sure be great to get 200 or more this time!” Come on out and give the gift of life…be a blood donor.

Trick-Or-Treat And A Movie Too!

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Hey, Panhandlers! This Saturday, Nov. 1 is going to be an evening full of fun stuff to do! Good thing we gain an hour! After you get done will all the trick-or-treating you and the little ones can handle, don’t just go home and settle in for the night with your haul of chocolaty treats; plan to join the rest of the community for a city-wide outdoor movie!
The city recently purchased a 16 X 24 foot screen to project films for the viewing enjoyment of the whole town. Saturday will be the premier of what we hope will be an on-going source of community entertainment.
The G-rated, family-friendly, Halloween themed movie will be shown at Paul Park, located at 13th Street and Franklin and is set to begin at 8 o’clock sharp. The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome. So bring your lawn chairs and your blankets, your thermoses of hot chocolate and buckets of popcorn (or your bags of Halloween candy) and plan to get cozy with the other townsfolk for a special time of outdoor fall whimsy!
If the weather is disagreeable, the event will be moved inside the old Spectator Gym. City Manager Rob Roach says they’ll know for sure by 5:30 on Saturday evening and will have it posted on the City of Panhandle Facebook page.
In our great little Town of Panhandle, which hosts huge support of our Panthers, the Halloween tradition of trick-or-treating has been moved this year to November 1 due to the out-of-town football game in Canadian this Friday. If you’re stocked with candy and wish to be visited by little ghosts and goblins, be sure to have your porch light on Saturday night.
Before you stop your door to door trick-or-treating to head over to Paul Park, don’t forget to stop in at 1413 Pecan for a visit to the Land of Oz, courtesy of Christle and Kevin Brown and the gang. It’s going to be a frightfully fun night!

Panthers Win Big Over West Texas High

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

By Linc Wood
The varsity Panthers hosted the West Texas High Comanches last Friday night trying for their second win in district to position themselves one game closer to a possible playoff spot. Panhandle, (3-4) overall and (1-1) in district play, would need a win, having lost the week before to an unconvincing Stratford team, to have any chance at a postseason run. With just three games left and a three-way tie for second place a Panther loss would all but concede their shot at getting out of a heavily stacked district 1-2A. However, the Comanches had other ideas as they began the game forcing a punt on Panhandle’s first possession of the game then marched directly down the field on an eight-play 42-yard scoring drive as Lim for WT split the uprights with a 31-yard field goal making it 3 to 0 over the Panthers. That would be one of many scores in the first quarter as it arguably was the longest quarter in Panther history at close to 50 minutes as the teams had 38-points combined.
Panhandle’s second series was derailed by a sack of McKinley forcing the Panthers to punt for a second time early in the contest. WT’s next possession didn’t go as planned as Colby Neeley turned an errant throw by the Comanches into a 39-yard interception return for a touchdown giving the lead to the Panthers 7 to 3 after the successful kick by Wise. The ensuing kick-off by Panhandle took a favorable bounce creating a scrum for the ball when sophomore Austin Archuleta knifed into the pile to retrieve the pigskin for the Panthers. Then, just two plays later, Panhandle gave away their next opportunity for points as they mishandled a reverse that was recovered by the Comanches. The turnover by the Panthers would be costly as WT drove quickly down the short field for their next score on a 19-yard pass by Thompson to Hernandez recapturing the lead for the Comanches 10 to 7.
Back on the prowl went the Panthers with their next series as they answered WT’s touchdown on a five-play 59-yard drive capped off by a Lamberson 4-yard run for Panhandle regaining the lead 14 to 10 after the PAT by Wise. Just as quickly as the momentum shifted back to the Panthers it was immediately lost as WT returned the ensuing kickoff 85-yards as Hernandez sped down his own sideline leaving Panther defenders tumbling in his wake causing yet another lead change, now 17 to 14 in favor of the visitors. With time waning in the first quarter the Panthers advanced the ball to the Comanche 16-yard line. There, it was Junior Josh Oliver with a catch on a quick slant to pay dirt to round out the scoring in the first quarter which would finally end with Panhandle in the lead 21 to 17. The next quarter would be more of the same for Panhandle as the lit up the scoreboard three more times, all touchdowns, blowing open a topsy-turvy first half of football. First it was Lamberson, again, with a 39-yard scamper for his second touchdown. Then, it was Oliver with his second touchdown catch of 39 yards making the score 35 to 23 over the Comanches. And finally, Justin Hughey ended the punching by Panhandle with his only touchdown catch of 11 yards in an all-out slugfest.
At the break, Panhandle was comfortably ahead 41 to 23 over their opponents. After what seemed like three hours the second half got underway which looked nothing like the opening stanza with each team only able to muster six points each. For a third time in as many quarters it was McKinley to Oliver, as the two seemed to be the only players on the field, connecting again for a 36-yard touchdown. This made the score 47 to 23, after Panhandle’s Tucker Wise pushed the kick wide of the post. WT got into the mix again in the third quarter as Hernandez took a pass from Thompson 30 yards for a touchdown narrowing the gap 47 to 29 in hopes of a Comanche comeback. But those hopes were quickly dashed by Clayton Wood when he intercepted a pass attempt by Thompson early in the fourth quarter and worked his way down the near sideline behind a convoy of blockers 70 yards for the defensive touchdown. The PAT was by Wise was good, pushing the lead back to 25 with the Panthers on top 54 to 29.
Panhandle would add one more score in the final period. This time it was Lamberson with his third run for a touchdown going untouched for 46 yards on a misdirection run that was executed to perfection by the entire offensive line. Wise tacked on the extra point and the Panthers had their biggest output of the season with 61 points in the scoreboard. That’s where this one would end with Panhandle blowing out West Texas High 61 to 29.
The Panthers will be in action tomorrow night against the Canadian Wildcats at 7 p.m. in Canadian. A Panther win would put them in the driver’s seat for a district title and would be a huge upset as the Wildcats are unbeaten and ranked #3 in the state. Panhandle will be at home the following Friday for its district final game against Wellington that will most likely decide the fate of a Panthers post-season appearance.
Lamberson led the rushing stats with 26 carries for 137 yards and three touchdowns. Colby Neeley rushed for 56 yards on three carries.
Oliver led in receiving with six catches for 142 yards and three touchdowns. Justin Hughey had 11 yards on one catch for a touchdown and Clayton Wood had one catch for nine yards. McKinley completed eight passes for 14 for a total of 162 yards and four touchdowns. Adding to the scoring was Lamberson on two PAT kicks and Tucker Wise on five good kicks through the uprights.
Defensively, Oliver also led in solo tackles with eight followed by Lamberson and Wood with five each while Ethan Hayes led the Panthers with a whopping 22 assisted tackles. Oliver had two assists and one deflected pass, Lamberson two assists and one interception and Wood five assisted tackles, one interception which resulted in a defensive score and two deflected passes. Hayes was also credited with one and a half sack, one caused turnover and two hurries.
Cade Throgmorton had three solo tackles, seven assists and one caused turnover and Red Hughey had two solos, nine assisted tackles, one caused turnover and two deflected passes. Neeley, Triston Inman and Devin Yarger contributed one solo tackle each. Neeley also had seven assists, one defensive touchdown as the result of an interception and two hurries. Inman was credited with five assists, blocked one extra point and deflected one pass while Yarger assisted eight times and was credited with one hurry.
Austin Archuleta had six assisted tackles, one and a half sack, one fumble recovery and one hurry. Andrew Smith was credited with three assisted tackles and Hunter Pool, Elijah Tompkins and Ryan Whitt contributed on one assisted tackles each. Tompkins was also credited with one

Sheriff’s Report

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

By Loren Brand
One of the pleasures of being sheriff is being asked to speak at the schools in Carson County. Recently, I spoke at the White Deer and Groom schools. The pleasure of these events is getting a chance to interact with the future leaders of our communities. These students are bright, fun to talk with and they ask great questions. I speak with them about the fact that drug arrests alone will never stop the cartels and that we need to boycott the illegal substances that they make their billions off of producing and smuggling. Local products such as methamphetamine and related substances are not made in sanitary labs or with approved materials. If you are a person who would be upset to find a hair in your cheeseburger from a fast food place – why would you pay big bucks to buy drugs that are made in a filthy environment?
We also talk about what it’s like to be chosen last. Everyone’s been in that situation at some time in their life when they were the last one chosen for a game or other competition and how bad that feels. The other kids who tease you or are angry with you if you don’t play to their standard don’t remember the incident, but those who have to spend their lives being chosen last do. Our students have an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. I’m going to be 62 in a few months, but I still have memories of lost opportunities when I was in school. I could have made a difference to someone instead of trying to be cool and fit in with the others.
I believe our kids and grandkids are smarter than my generation and I also believe that they have the resources and technology to make a better world…if we support and protect them.
SCAMS
In the last six years, Carson County residents have lost over $200,000 to scams. Whether it be the old Nigerian letter routine, Publisher’s Clearing House, Canadian Lottery or high pressure telephone scammers. That money is gone and we can’t get it back. It was sent to foreign countries which have no reciprocity agreement for prosecution with the U.S. There’s nothing free if you have to pay up front costs to get it. How they target you is easy. If you’ve ever sent away for a free credit score (which requires you social security number, date of birth, name, email and telephone information), enter an internet contest for a free house, car, whatever, or if you’ve given your personal information to someone who calls and wants to verify an account that you may or may not have, you’ve helped supply the thieves with the information they need to rip you off.
Consumer lists are sold by a number of entities (legal and illegal) and you are profiled by your age, occupation, lifestyle, hobbies, etc. Then it’s just a matter of deceiving you or bullying you into giving them your hard-earned funds. If you get a call from a guy named, “Larry” and he has a highly suspect dialect, hang up the telephone. If “Samantha” sends you an email saying you’ve met before and she needs your financial help, delete it…unless it’s a Samantha you know. We’ve been raised to be polite and to give folks the benefit of the doubt. That’s what scammers are counting on. Don’t waste your breath talking or work your fingers to respond to these pirates. Hang up or hit “delete.” If you have questions about any correspondence, please contact me or the police department.
If you sell something on Craigslist or other source and the buyer sends you more money than the deal was for, you haven’t had a lucky break. You’ve corresponded with a thief. By the time you send them their partial refund and then try to deposit their check or money order, it’s too late. You’ve lost your money and I can’t get it back for you.

JV Panthers Notch Another Victory

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

By Margaret Barrett
The Junior Varsity Panthers traveled to Stinnett last Thursday and posted their second district win of the season against the Junior Varsity of the West Texas Comanches. The Panthers came away with a 34-20 victory to bring their season record to 6-1 and 1-1 in district play. This game brought the total points scored for the Panthers this season to 197 with their opponents scoring only 70 in the seven games.
Garrett Barnett began the game with the kickoff to the WT 20 yard line. The kick was returned all the way to the WT 48 yard line where Barnett made the stop. The Comanches went to work and with 8:24 on the clock put the first points on the board on a 19-yard touchdown pass. The PAT pass was successful and the Comanches took the lead 8-0. WT’s ensuing kickoff was returned by Reese Graham to the Panther 46 yard line. Quarterback Layton Lamberson and running back, Dawson Hackett, took less than two minutes to put points up for the Panthers. Lamberson scored on a 17-yard run but the try for two was not successful and the WT Comanches still had the lead 8-6. WT started their second drive on their own 27 yard line. The Panthers defense held strong and forced a punt which set the Panthers up on the 50 yard line. Again Lamberson and Hackett combined to move the ball to the West Texas 2 yard line where Hackett scored with 2:42 on the clock. WT’s next drive produced more offense. Cobi Pace, James Rogers and Lamberson had great defensive stops on WT receivers and the ball went over to the Panthers. The quarter ended with the score 8-12. The second quarter found the Panthers holding the ball for most of the quarter and hitting pay dirt with only 1:33 on the clock with a 3-yard run by Hackett. The try for the extra points was not successful, but the Panthers extended their lead to 8-18 to end the half.
The Comanches kicked off to the Panthers to start the second half and the Panthers took a couple of possessions to get untracked. WT did score on their second possession on a screen pass for 74 yards. Sam Koone and Lamberson stopped the attempt for the extra points, but with 1:38 on the clock WT cut the lead to 14-18. Rogers returned the kickoff to the Panther’s 31 yard line and it took only one play for Lamberson to run 69 yards to the end zone to put the Panthers on the scoreboard again. A Lamberson to Ethan Neil pass was good for the two points and with 1:02 remaining in the third quarter, the Panthers extended their lead to 14-26. Again the defense of the Panthers held and the Comanches were held on fourth down on their own 17 yard line.
The fourth quarter had both teams scoring. The Panthers scored with 8:58 in the game on another 2-yard run by Lamberson. He also ran for the PAT and the Panthers now led by a score of 14-34. WT did score with 3:30 remaining, but the PAT was stopped by Dustin Hughey and Gage Alexander. Jayden Shaver and Kayden Lynch combined to run out the clock.
Lamberson was the leading rusher again with 252 yards on 24 carries. He scored on runs of 17 yards, two yards, two yards and 69 yards. Hackett had 102 yards on 17 carries while Reese Graham carried the ball three times for 20 yards. Hackett scored on runs of 2 yards and 3 yards. Lamberson connected on four passes to four different receivers. Shaver, Hackett, Rogers, and Graham each had a reception. Lamberson also connected with Ethan Neil for one PAT and he ran for one.
Other players seeing action in the game included Cory Stribling, Justin Gandy, Brandon Jones, Braedyn Kowalewski, Cole Bacon, Garrett McIlroy, Ashton Canida, Mason Reynolds, Noah Ford, Zac Moore, and Hunter Whitmire. Brady Cooke and Bradlee Brandvik were out with injuries.
The (6-1, 1-1) Panther Junior Varsity host the Canadian Wildcats tonight in their last home game of the 2014 season. Kickoff will take place following the junior high games.
