Workers continue refurbishment of Wolfforth water towers

A Wolfforth water tower is covered in a shroud as workers attempt to remove lead paint.

Check out this picture submitted by Wolfforth City Manager Darrell Newsom: Workers have covered the water tower behind the Wolfforth Training Center at Fifth Street and Cedar Avenue.

Haboob aftermath leaves Wolfforth pondering The Great Tumbleweed

Kelly Rexrode stands next to a tumbleweed that ultimately landed between his house and that of former Wolfforth Mayor L.C. Childers.

Some days I might not have time to get to a picture of a giant tumbleweed, but I was glad that I found time to see this. I got an e-mail from Charlotte McDonald on Wednesday morning telling me to come see the tumbleweed. Since I was taking pictures nearby anyway, I swung by. I’m […]
