Eyes Wide Open

MARTIN COUNTY - Law enforcement officers in Stanton and across Martin County are reminding residents to keep their eyes wide open for that bunch of bad guys who can dampen Christmas spirit by ripping off packages from porches and right out from under Christmas trees - as happened to a number of Martin County homes several years ago.

“We’ve already had some petty stealing of Christmas decorations so we know we’ve got some around here who’d rather be naughty than nice,” said one local lawman. “It’s just smart for everybody to be on the lookout for people doing stupid stuff.”

Stanton coach reaches major milestone

STANTON - When Stanton’s Junior Ashmore recorded his first win as young coach in Hale Center, none of the players on his current team had been born. On Nov. 20, after 34 years at the helm, coach Ashmore recorded his 700th win by defeating the Kermit Yellow Jackets 50-33.

Ashmore didn’t have to wait long for the milestone victory as his Lady Buffs have had a really good start to the season winning five of their first seven games. Most of the

wins earned over schools of larger classifications including Lamesa, Monahans and Andrews.

Stanton’s team effort was key to the 700th victory as two players were in double figures while a total of nine players provided points.

Ashmore was an all-state basketball player for Hale Center High School where he graduated in 1980.

Global benchmark Brent oil LCOF9, +1.19% and West Texas Intermediate are in a bear market, usually defined as a drop of at least 20% from a recent peak.

The Wall Street Journal has listed a few reasons that industry experts say contributed to the latest tumble, which had WTI crude on the New York Mercantile Exchange US:CLZ8 shedding 7.7% to settle at $50.42 a barrel, marking the lowest finish since Oct. 9 of 2017:

Holiday trading volume: Traders say that Friday’s decline can at least partly be attributed to thinner trading volumes following Thanksgiving, when commodity markets were closed.
