Only incumbents in the mix so far for school board and city council

STANTON - So far, it’s only incumbents who have shown an interest in serving the community as members of the school board and city council. With just over two weeks to go to file for a place on the May ballot, few candidates are stepping up. In the Stanton City Council election, both incumbents, Steven Villa and Danny Fryar, have filed applications for another term. Their two spots on the council are the only ones to be decided. In the Stanton Independent School District school board election, two incumbents have picked up their applications and are preparing to file.

Serving Stanton, Lenorah, Tarzan and all of Martin County

STANTON - Much work has been done to repair the damage caused by vandals to the St. James Baptist Church on South College in Stanton. The first priority was to replace the 11 broken windows - the small congregation had placed plastic over the broken windows in order to have services in the building following the Dec. 22 breakin. James Jenkins, a prominent member of the church, had contacted Adam Murio, a local carpenter, to give an estimate to replace the windows and the entrance door. The estimate was for $7900. As the information of the break-in was made public by the news media, social media and word-of-mouth, donations were make by many individuals, organizations and others. The pastor of the Methodist Church of Stanton, Charlie Stevens, announced at this last Sunday’s services that the offering for that Sunday would be donated to the St. James Baptist Church. The Martin County Community Fund also made a generous contribution.

White Motors celebrating seven decades in Stanton with open house Feb. 8

MARTIN COUNTY - When BF White came to Martin County in 1929, the bottom had dropped out of the stock market and the world was in turmoil.

That same year, Guy Eiland opened a motor company despite the Great Depression, and meanwhile White went to work doing what his family had always done - educate Texas kids.

After teaching in the Badgett School for 11 years, White was asked to run for county judge - which he did,

serving for eight years before he and his brother Phillip bought Eiland’s Ford dealership in early 1949.

And this week, 70 years later, White Motor Company is celebrating its anniversary of seven decades in business in downtown Stanton.

Patrick plays politics with Kel Seliger, who won’t kowtow to him

WEST TEXAS - State Sen. Kel Seliger did what the people who elected him wanted - he voted for public schools and he voted to support Texas cities and counties when Lt.Gov. Dan Patrick came after schools, cities and counties with new state controls and tax issues.

And this week it cost him - Patrick played what many of Seliger’s supporters say is dirty politics by knocking Seliger off, first the Higher Education Committee and then - using a bogus “lewd comment claim” kicked Seliger out as chair of the Ag Committee.

Flu season is here and Stanton schools starting to see absences

MARTIN COUNTY - A sharp increase in absences for some grades and classes at Stanton schools is an alert for parents to get control of a flu season that’s only starting and already is a problem. Up to 15 percent of students have been absent on some days in some classes, particularly at the elementary. At Grady, meanwhile, teachers and parents are busy knocking on wood since - so far at least - there have been very few cases of flu.

Back in Stanton, school district Nurse Jaclyn Denson urged parents to take extra precautions with the current strains of flu and to educate themselves on information offered by the Center for Disease Control.

“As we approach the dreaded flu season,” Denson said. “please read through the information provided by the CDC that’s available here at the school, at the hospital or online.
