Commissioners to consider restricting golf cart usage at Wolf Creek Park

The Ochiltree County Commissioners Court met in regular session on Monday to tackle a long list of fairly routine agenda items, including authorizing the auditor to advertise for various materials for the upcoming fiscal year, and discussing the need to possibly restrict golf cart usage at Wolf Creek Park.

Sheriff Terry Bouchard reported that underage drivers were improperly using golf carts at Wolf Creek Park during the Fourth of July. In a segment on KEYE Radio, Sheriff Bouchard said there were golf carts going by with four or five kids hanging off them; one had a passenger riding in the ball basket and others were strapped in the back where golf bags go.

“That’s not a kid’s play toy, its a transportation device. We’ve had some issues,” Bouchard said. The county will consider restrictions on golf cart usage at the park at a later date.

Wheatheart Celebration has full slate of activities to honor 100 years of Perryton

August sees the beginning of a month full of events during Perryton’s annual Wheatheart of the Nation Celebration, where we celebrate the birth of Perryton. This year marks Perryton’s 100th year in existence, when settlers from Ochiltree, TX and Gray, OK picked up and moved to create the new town of Perryton.

The Perryton townsite was laid out by the Santa Fe railway as part of their overall development along the new line from Shattuck, OK, on the east into Hansford county on the west.

Perryton is one of the few cities of the country that has an actual birthday — Aug. 22, 1919.

District’s childcare facility to hold open house July 29

As the start of the school year approaches, Perryton ISD is preparing to open the Ranger Roundup Learning Center, a full time day care facility that will fill a need in the community. After Perryton’s only fully licensed child care facility, The Beehive, closed in August, 2018, PISD and Ochiltree General Hospital started looking for a solution for the child care needs of district and hospital employees as well as the community at large.

The project is a joint effort of PISD and OGH with additional support from Texas Workforce Solutions and First Christian Church. Texas Workforce Solutions is supporting the effort by providing a grant for furniture and the church has completely renovated the former Beehive facility.
