Study shows laundry dries faster in Ft Stockton

      A recent study done by some Sul Ross students concluded that wet laundry dries faster in Ft Stockton. The students did five loads of laundry at different intervals during the day. The drying times were then recorded and calculated. Their results are being measured against national drying times to try and find the optimal drying town. In the past, Ft Stockton has been ranked among the highest in number of yellow roofs per capita and home of the funniest joke.

      A new novel has just been published in Marfa. The 7 page thriller was noted to be the shortest print to date by author Sally Schefield. Copies go on sale at all local book stores next week. Ms. Schefield plans on having a 7 minute book signing, as well as a 7 minute book reading. Following the reading she will also have a 7 minute book release party.

      Rattlesnakes are very common in the area, and on Friday, a 35 footer was shot. Four Terlingua residents were out four wheeling when they were thrown off their ATVs. This occurred after both machines ran over the monster. "we were going pretty fast. i just couldn't stop. It was like a desert speed bump."  Although the snake was shot several times, it slithered away and was not located.
