Sweet dreams are made of these

Body
Local resident Jack Hoadley appeared at the Hemphill County Extension office out of the blue this week, carrying a giant Hershey’s Chocolate bar, which he presented as a treat for the 4-H Club members who will be meeting this evening (Thursday, Feb. 4) at the Exhibition Center. Jack is a veteran of the United States Marine Corp and served in the Vietnam War. “Jack is truly a patriot, and his thoughtfulness is very inspirational to the Hemphill County 4-H Club,” said AgriLife Extension Agent Andy Holloway, who is pictured here accepting the gift, and who added, “It was impromptu and very special.”

Home sweet home

Understanding the toils of lacking water in remote and often drought-ridden places like the Texas Panhandle, local rancher Steve Rader hosted Eric Macias as our program today. Eric is a graduate of the CHS class of 2000 and the son of Stanley and Cara Dawn Macias. In the 20 years since Eric left Canadian, he has been quite busy helping to grow the international solar pump company, LORENTZ, of which he is now the chief operating officer.
