Cordell Lady Blue Devils End Season At Regional Tournament

“They were bigger and very physical, but we had a chance to win right up until that final buzzer,” said Cordell Head Coach Jana Rogers of the Lady Blue Devil elimination game loss to Mooreland on Friday, February 23, 2018.

“Mooreland is a tough team who really take it to you every play,” Rogers said. “Our defense kept us in the game even when we couldn’t score. I thought all through the game if we could get ahead, even by a point or two, we would win. We would tie it, but just couldn’t ever pull ahead.”

Home Country

By Slim Randles

The guys were outside at the sale barn, sipping coffee in Styrofoam cups and waiting for someone to say something. Inside, the pitch of the auctioneer was heralding the glories of an old spavined milk cow, and fevered cattlemen were waving cards with numbers on them.

It was quieter outside.

House Report

By State Representative Todd Russ

The state Board of Equalization met last week to certify revenue the Legislature can appropriate for the Fiscal Year 2019 budget.

The board estimates we will have a budget gap of about $167 million. This represents the difference between what was appropriated for Fiscal Year 2018 and what should be available for FY19. This is actually great news. Last fall, the gap was estimated at $800 million. Just two years ago, it was $1.3 billion. It’s shrinking by the day. By the time we reach a budget agreement for the coming fiscal year, the gap may be much lower.
