Stanton’s oldest building is former home to Carmelite priests

STANTON - Pop Quiz: What is the oldest building in town?

Lawmen get some backup while sheriff is on the mend

MARTIN COUNTY - It’s good to have friends when you need them - and that certainly was the case in Martin County this past weekend when the good guys came from all directions after Martin County Sheriff Brad Ingram was rushed to the hospital.

The prognosis was shaky at first, but by mid-week Ingram was out of bed and at least sitting in a chair in a Midland hospital room. Reports indicate he’s still in a lot of pain and going to need some time to mend, but what put a scare into lots of Ingram’s friends and supporters appears to be improving.

As Chief Deputy Ernie Wakefield said, “lots of prayers have been answered.”
