Andrews man gets a different kind of copper . . .

MARTIN COUNTY - At about number eight or nine of the 12-pack it all came perfectly clear, the plan came together.

Hire on with one of the oil companies, work a day or two - just long enough to figure out where they keep the copper, then quit and come back when there ain’t no one around . . .

Well, for starters, there are some employees who actually do ride for the brand - and when they spotted a former co-worker in the company yard helping himself to the copper, they locked the gate and called the law.

QEP’s donation bringing state-of-the-art lab to Grady

LENORAH - If it’s possible, the kids in Grady are only going to get smarter, thanks in a large part to the folks at QEP Resources.

This past week, Grady students celebrated the grand opening of the new “SmartLab” – a science, technology, engineering and math learning experience for students in grades three through eight.

Nicknamed STEM for the four areas of learning at the focus of the new lab, Grady is one of only two schools in the state to have this highly advanced learning system. The other is at Ferris.

“The SmartLab is a state-of-the-art STEM classroom that engages students of all interests and abilities in personalized learning using cutting-edge technology. We are excited to invest in our students through this new classroom environment,” explained Grady Principal Gary Jones.

Over a fifth of housing units to be shut down for badly-needed work

STANTON - Texans hit hard by Hurricane Harvey won’t be able to find federal housing in Stanton - at least not for three or four months.

Rumors have swirled that some of the empty units in Stanton’s federally-subsidized housing program might be made available to some of the hardest hit South Texans, many of whom lost everything when Harvey blew in from the Gulf and swamped so many towns along the Texas coast.
