The Award-Winning Lubbock County

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

When government does something well, it's worth noting. (Quick example: Lubbock City Council selecting the old Barnes and Noble location as the new home of Godeke Library.) A friend clued me in to something that -- strangely enough -- local media seems to be missing or ignoring completely. And it's kind of a big deal. The County of Lubbock has just won (actually, back in August!) three prestigious awards from the Texas Association of Counties.

Big 12 notes: Reesing for Heisman, Sooners on mend and praise for Tech's D

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

If you're talking about Texas Tech football, you're probably talking about Mike Leach's dizzying passing attack and the latest Red Raider quarterback to light up the scoreboard and fill up the stat sheet. As usual, that was the case on Monday during the Big 12 coaches' conference call. Former walk-on Steven Sheffield was a hot topic after making his first career start, in which he torched Kansas State for 490 yards and seven touchdowns to earn Big 12 offensive player of the week honors. But Tech's defense also got some props for its performance in the 66-14 whipping of the Wildcats.

Obama Has Been Bribed. The Fix is in. Will it Take?

By: Paul Lyle | Blog: Closing Argument

While the rest of the world gets the flu shot, Obama gets a psycho political inoculation of a quite different nature—a serum secretly prepared in a lab in the mountains of Norway called The Nobel Peace Prize. The world is questioning why the Norwegians selected Obama so early into his presidency, before he's accomplished anything worthy of the endowment. A review of geopolitical fac

Opening Doors for Nuclear Terrorists

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

Is the Obama Administration purposely opening doors to make it easier for nuclear terrorists to gain access to New York City and other prime targets?  Are Obama and his leadership simply so focused on quickly seizing all possible power that they do not understand the dangerous opportunities they are creating for our enemies? On Thursday it was announced that the Department of Homeland Security would be slashing New York City’s funds to combat terrorism, including radiological sensors to detect nuclear we

A resounding win for Red Raiders

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Texas Tech coach Mike Leach said his team had been on the threshold of putting together a complete performance this season, but for one reason or another, it hadn't happened. Until Saturday night, anyway. The Red Raiders dominated Kansas State from start to finish, running away with a 66-14 victory on a chilly, hazy night at Jones AT&T Stadium.

Tech offense back on track, defense still holding strong

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Steven Sheffield recovered from his first interception of the game to lead scoring drives on Texas Tech's next two possessions. Baron Batch capped a 10-play, 85-yard march with a 4-yard run up the middle, and Sheffield finished off the second one with a 12-yard pass to Detron Lewis that gave Tech a 52-7 lead late in the third quarter. The Red Raider defense also is holding strong - and still working on a shutout.

K-State finally scores, but not with its offense

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Kansas State got the ball to start the second half, but once again, the Wildcats couldn't do much with and were forced to punt. Their defense, though, finally put them on the scoreboard. On Tech's first offensive play of the third quarter, K-State defensive end Jeffrey Fitzgerald picked off a short pass from Steven Sheffield and returned it 17 yards to the end zone. So Tech now leads 38-7 with 12:54 left in the third, and its defense is still working on a shutout.
