  • Apache Pass fire grows to 18,000 acres

    Lise Ott|Updated Sep 13, 2012

    Sustained winds of 22 - 25 miles per hour Monday took what is now called the Apache Pass fire from about 200 acres Sunday evening to more than 18,000 as of Tuesday morning. Extremely dry conditions in the scablands contributed to the blaze. All available firefighters from the Odessa area responded to the blaze, which at its closest point to Odessa was burning Monday afternoon about 12 miles north of Odessa, just north of Eagle Springs Road. Crews from Wilbur, Creston,...

  • The 42nd Deutschesfest starts today

    Updated Sep 13, 2012

    The carnival will be at Fest after all – too late to get into the flyer printed by the employees of the local branch of Bank of America but a welcome addition nevertheless. Fortunately for The Record, the carnival information was inadvertantly left in the copy of the schedule that ran in last week’s supplement to the newspaper. Last-minute preparations and a flurry of activity all over town mean that Fest is about to begin. Despite the volunteer firefighters being pulled awa...

  • This Week in Odessa History

    Updated Sep 13, 2012

    There was a time during the school term when Odessa school children, if not their teachers, too, looked forward to three glorious days of fall. It was the time of the “Teachers’ Institute,” so named no one seems to recall, when pupils got three days off from their studies while their teachers traveled to Spokane to hear lectures, attend forums and exchange views with other teachers. The teachers probably felt that Institute was worthwhile, but for the children it was pure joy It was respite from their classes, which only a fe...

  • Advice from a small town girl

    Lise Ott|Updated Sep 13, 2012

    You may not have noticed this. I like words. Actually, I love words. I love searching for, and especially finding, that exact word that can make my meaning clear. Clear to me, anyway. Everyone else, not so much. Lately, I’ve been thinking about words to live by. “Could,” “should,” “can’t” and “won’t” are just a tiny part of that particular lexicon. “Could” is such a hopeful word. When I was young, I could be anything I wanted. I could grow up to be a forest ranger or an arche...

  • Letter to the Editor: Affordable Care Act based on Romney plan

    Updated Sep 12, 2012

    Let’s get this straight. First, Governor Romney created an affordable health care program for all citizens in the state of Massachusetts. Then, for all Americans, the federal government built the Affordable Care Act based on Governor Romney’s health care plan. Once Congress passed the ACA and President Obama signed it into law, Governor Romney was against the federal health care plan modeled on the Massachusetts plan he built. Now, as of this past Sunday, Governor Romney likes parts of the ACA and wants to keep those par...

  • Weekly grain report

    Updated Sep 12, 2012

    9/10/12: Our recent pattern continues, as we seem to stall out as white wheat prices rise to near the $8.30 level locally, then falls back to just below $8. Monday'’s slide took us back to the middle of that range. Again, there wasn’t anything in particular that caused today’s slide, just retracing the same pattern we’ve been in recently. Egypt liked it and tendered after the close. Whether we’re higher or lower tomorrow probably hinges on whether or not Russia feels like doing any more business with them. There’s a...

  • 35th Annual Mennonite Country Auction

    Updated Sep 12, 2012

    Menno Mennonite Church sits atop a grassy knoll surrounded by miles and miles of wheat fields.

  • Heritage Church launching Bible-reading campaign

    Updated Sep 12, 2012

    “The Bible is central to our faith,” said Pastor Jon Hayashi of Heritage Church but many people are intimidated by its scope and size. The Story gives us a way to journey from Genesis to Revelation together in 31 weeks so everyone understands God's story and how their story intersects with it.” The Bible is the best-selling book in history, but how many people in Odessa are actually reading it? A Gallup survey reports the average American household has four Bibles. However, research by Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life...

As National Teacher of the Year in 2008, he has some insights to what makes for student success in school. Throughout your school life, you have been collecting bits and pieces of information that you might put in one big pile called “school stuff.” A great student organizes that information instead of leaving it in...
