OVER THE TOP

Lake Fryer in Wolf Creek Park has been at low ebb for the entire winter, with water levels so low that the concrete pad where boats were unloaded was almost completely uncovered. Early Monday morning and all day Monday, rain showers fell south of Farnsworth with the runoff going straight to Wolf Creek Park and Lake Fryer. The lake is full and water is running over the spillway.

Committee appointed to begin gas contract negotiations for city

The Perryton City Council approved a steering committee to negotiate a new natural gas supply contract for the city, as well as annexed a tract of land into the city and installed newly elected council members.

Appointed to the natural gas steering committee were Robert Cunningham, Brent Allen, Mayor Kerry Symons, City Manager David Landis and Public Works Director Jim Powell.

Along with the committee, the council also approved authorizing staff to execute the contract upon direction from the steering committee.

Landis explained that the city’s current three year contract with West Texas Gas expires at the end of September. He said the execution authorization was necessary because there is a narrow window to act on the new price with West Texas Gas. He added that he thinks the city may save at least 25 cents a unit over the current contract.

Becerril lifts to national championship

Josue Becerril overcame adversity and uncertainty to capture a dream. He battled through the adversity to compete at the highest level. The long trip to Lombard, IL took its toll on Becerril. He arrived with cramps and illness at the National Powerlifting Championship in the suburb of Chicago.

In addition to the illness which hampered his efforts, he missed his weight class by 1.1 pounds. The miss placed him in the 163-pound class while only weighing 146.4 pounds. The struggles placed Becerril at a great disadvantage even before the lifting commenced.

Becerril is loaded with talent and that talent carried him to the national championship. He began the competition with a 425pound squat. This total was 50 pounds under the best lift of his career, but he decided to play it safe due to his cramping issues. He gained strength as the contest continued.

City to fight annual battle against moquitoes

Spring is well underway and all it takes is a little moisture in a container to grow mosquitoes. The city is asking all its residents for their assistance in the control of these irritating and disease-carrying pests.

The control of the mosquito involves a three phase integrated program: 1) source reduction; 2) larvaciding and 3) adulticiding.

The best way to control the pest is to eliminate their water habitat. It takes very little water for a mosquito to grow and develop.
