Concerned Martin County residents launch Save the Connell House campaign

STANTON - Extreme weather conditions can make life in west Texas a challenge at times. This is true today and was especially true for the old settlers who came to the area in the late 1800’s. Shortly after the town of Marienfeld (later to become Stanton) was established in 1882, a severe drought began. Crops failed and most folks did not have the resources to feed their families. In 1886, a very harsh winter followed the drought. Many of the early settlers left the area and sought a fresh start elsewhere. The hardy souls that were able to stay saw additional droughts over the next two decades that caused many families to leave.

Analysis offered for cuts at Pioneer Natural Resources

DALLAS, MIDLAND and WEST TEXAS - In the days after 9/11, when consumers cut back on travel and the public was still grieving over the terror attacks, scores of companies announced major layoffs.

The economy had suffered a shocking hit and businesses had to respond accordingly.

“I have declared a state of emergency at American Airlines,” then-CEO Don Carty said on Sept. 19, 2001.

“This declaration is an official recognition that, hard as it may be to accept, our company’s very survival depends on dramatic change to our operations, our schedule, and worst of all, our staffing levels.”

American, one of the region's largest employers, announced 20,000 layoffs.

United matched the number, Continental cut 12,000, and Boeing said it would eliminate 30,000 positions.

Obesity in America is stretching more than just elastic

WEST TEXAS - Today in America, over 93 million adults, nearly 40 percent, are considered obese. The issue of obesity goes beyond people’s waistlines — it’s the large economic impact on healthcare that directly affects the cost of health insurance for Americans.

By some estimations, obesity-related healthcare costs range from $147 billion to $210 billion per year, and with health insurance companies footing those bills, it’s driving up the cost of health insurance for all Americans.

When ranking the fittest and the fattest states, there’s really no clear cut divide in state obesity levels. According to data from the Center for Disease Control, West Virginia ranks highest at 38.1 percent of adults who are obese, compared to the lowest state, Colorado, at 22.6 percent. Colorado’s 22.6 percent of obese adults goes to show that America’s obesity is prevalent even at its lowest levels.
