While search for park land continues, city will make needed improvements

STANTON - While a new and much larger city park is still the goal, Mayor Jim Smith said this week that for now he and the Stanton City Council are fully behind efforts to improve two city parks here.

Separate groups of Stanton residents have approached the city with a list of needed repairs and improvements at both Tommy Walker Field south of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and Howard Jenkins Park on the north end of town.

The softball association and the Martin County Little League association have both sought to get some, that they term, long-needed updates to both park areas.

And both groups and the many supporters of baseball and softball programs in Stanton have the ears of the Stanton council, Smith said this week.

OPEC’s decision great news for Martin County

MARTIN COUNTY - It’s been two good weeks in a row for the energy business in Martin County and all across Texas and the nation.

Now this week comes the news Wednesday that OPEC has seen the light and instead of trying to drive the US shale drillers out of business, the Middle Eastern giant will cut back its production so everybody gets a piece of the pie.
