Joseph Edward Sudolcan grew up on the go.

The son of an Air Force cryptologist technician, Sudolcan moved every two years as a child.

He saw a lot of the world in his former years with stays in the Philippines, Japan, Whiteman AFB, Missouri, McGuire AFB, New Jersey, Dallas, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

“I was never anywhere very long,” Sudolcan said. “I had to learn how to make and lose friends quickly.”



Hospital Trustee Gary Goff is not impressed with Reagan County’s Commissioners.

The normally mild mannered board member let rip last Tuesday as the hospital board reviewed a county proposed interlocal agreement for ambulance transfer service.

“This is just absurd,” Goff exclaimed. “For the county to issue demands like this is nothing short of extortion.”

The proposed interlocal, drafted by County Attorney Chad Elkins, requires the hospital pay for two EMT positions, to the tune of $129,227.04 per year, in exchange for ambulance transfer service.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of terminally ill children and young teenagers.

But what about when a mom of young children is stricken with a serious illness?

The Texas-based organization Ally’s Wish grants wishes of mothers struggling with terminal illnesses.

Lamesa resident and former Reagan County teacher Angie Harrison and her family received a trip to DisneyWorld in Orlando, Fla., last month courtesy of Ally’s Wish.



The Reagan County Commissioners are asking the City of Big Lake to increase their contribution to the county for deputy salaries.

The commissioners, during their regular meeting last Monday, reviewed an interlocal agreement penned by the city and agreed that the $185,000.00 in the document was too low.

“If they are going around saying that they are paying for three deputies then they need to be actually paying for three,” Commissioner Thomas Strube said.
