We are in the national
news but not in a good way. It seems like Amarillo, TX has a doctor who is obsessed with his ex-girlfriend. She, however, found a new love (another doctor) in Lubbock, which is 123 miles south of here. Amarillo doctor evidently paid hired hit man with bars of silver ($9,000) to kill the Lubbock doctor. Someone said silver bars have ID marks on them that identify who the bars were sold to. It just amazes me that anyone would either (1) think he could commit a perfect murder and never be caught or (2) be willing to spend the rest of his life in prison for $9,000.
It was really a double blow for the Lubbock doctor's family as their father was killed on the 2 year anniversary of their mother's murder by her second husband.
I would have much rather seen us in the news for the great contract Bell Textron received to build the new commercial helicopters. They are our best industry here.
