What came before and what lies ahead

What came before and what lies ahead

STANTON - Working from home during a pandemic can give one a new perspective on their job. For a museum director, it offers the chance to review stories from the past while entering the history of museum relics into a computer program. Each object in the museum tells a story and offers a window into another time period. Some of those times were difficult and people must have felt sad and worried or lonely and isolated, not unlike what some of us feel today. And yet, most of those people survived and many of them did more than survive, they ultimately flourished and helped establish the county and the town where we now live. A look at a few artifacts from the Martin County Historical Museum can prove both interesting and encouraging.

STANTON - Despite the entire nation being asked to live by CDC and Federal guidelines, a group of Stanton residents felt they were above these regulations and hosted a party complete with bounce houses at Shelbourne Park in Stanton.

Railroad commission explains oil oversupply, worldwide production needs to decrease now

WEST TEXAS - Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton held a webinar on Wednesday, sharing data on the discrepancy between oil demand and oil supply after major Permian Basin oil and gas producers Parsley Energy and Pioneer Natural Resources asked the Railroad Commission to hold an emergency market demand hearing.

Sitton says the current market features the greatest oversupply in the history of the oil and gas industry.

“The market is 21 percent oversupplied,” Sitton said. “That is almost ten times the amount we’ve seen in the last 40 years. The most it was ever over-supplied or under-supplied was during the Middle East Oil Embargo, where it got up to six percent.”

Gov. Abbott extends coronavirus school closures till May 4

MARTIN COUNTY – Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday sought to get Texans to stay at home for the next month to stem the spread of the new coronavirus, issuing an order that says they must “minimize” social gatherings and in-person contact with people outside their homes unless they are taking part in “essential” services and activities. He also announced that schools would remain closed until at least May 4.

The decision brings Texas more in line with states that have implemented shelter-in-place — or stay-athome — orders to fight the spread, but Abbott declined to characterize his latest order that way, arguing those terms leave the wrong impression. He wants Texans to know they can still leave their homes to do things such as go to the grocery store or go for a jog.

How much will market volatility really affect you?

This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

There’s no way to sugarcoat it: If you’re an investor, you haven’t liked what you’ve seen in the financial markets recently. The effects of the coronavirus triggered a market “correction” – a decline of 10 percent or more – and more volatility is almost certainly on the way. But instead of fretting over your investment statements, you could consider some more positive approaches to this situation.
