McCain needs to give voters more to go on

By Leon Logan There are a few things we know about John McCain. He has voted with Bush 90 percent of the time and 80 percent of the population say the country is going in the wrong direction. He supports the Iraq war and Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with 9-11. He thought Iraq […]

Praising God and remembering ties of friendship

by Leonard Lauriault Ya know what? Praise God! I will say it again – Praise God! In a previous article in the Quay County Sun, on May 7, I stated that we need to pray for rain locally and over the Canadian River watershed to fill our lake with irrigation water. While that very issue […]

Romance not the cowboy way

By Glenda Price Cowboys are romantic, they say. Uh-huh. Every one I know can get downright eloquent when discussing a new baby calf, his favorite using horse or his best cow dog. We females find that quite attractive. But what about us? My theory is they like human female companionship, but they just don’t know […]

Looking forward to the cowboy’s play on words

By Lynn Moncus Many of us who read the Quay County Sun look forward to seeing what Baxter Black has to say each week, not only because we speak the same language but because we know him. He has caused many smiles through the years and just keeps writing. When I was teaching “Cowboy Lit” […]

Trash is big business

by Chelle Delaney: Quay County Sun Let’s talk trash. Like what’s in your garbage can. Just because we want to throw these things away, doesn’t mean they’re “trash.” We’re denigrating, belittling, disparaging, maligning, and slandering a valuable commodity. Look, here in Tucumcari, we’re spending $1.2 million just for a place to put some of what […]

Yuletide has Christmas oddities

by Chelle Delaney: Quay County Sun Christmas does have a few oddities. For example, say these words out loud: Jesus. Christ. OK. Now say, Christmas. What’s that? Did you say Crissmuss?
