Photo of the day: Halloween Eyes




Black Cat

A ghost, though invisible, still is like a place
your sight can knock on, echoing; but here
within this thick black pelt, your strongest gaze
will be absorbed and utterly disappear:

just as a raving madman, when nothing else
can ease him, charges into his dark night
howling, pounds on the padded wall, and feels
the rage being taken in and pacified.

She seems to hide all looks that have ever fallen
into her, so that, like an audience,
she can look them over, menacing and sullen,
and curl to sleep with them. But all at once

as if awakened, she turns her face to yours;
and with a shock, you see yourself, tiny,
inside the golden amber of her eyeballs
suspended, like a prehistoric fly.

Photo of the day: Paramount


The Paramount was completed in 1932 just as the Depression was leaving its mark on Amarillo, which had feasted on the fruits of the 1920s oil boom until the global crash caught up with it.

The Paramount was Amarillo's premier first-run theater for decades, but fell behind the multiple screen suburban complexes in the 1970s, and closed in the mid 1970s.

It was gutted and converted to office space, but the pueblo deco exterior is still as beautiful as ever. A hint of its grandeur can be seen in the second level of the parking garage that fills the old auditorium. The painted starburst ceiling is still intact, as is golden plasterwork that framed the top of the stage.

A few years ago the sign (which had hung outside a local night club) was refurbished and put back in its original location - helping restore Polk Street to some of its former glory,

Balloon Glow tonight!

Players in Apollo 13 Mission to Speak at Centennial Convocation




CANYON, Texas—Apollo 13 Mission Commander James Lovell and Flight Director Gene Kranz will be the keynote speakers at West Texas A&M University’s Centennial Convocation at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12 at the First United Bank Center. The event will close out a year of special WTAMU Centennial events as Lovell and Kranz, who just celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission, share their experiences on that historic spaceflight.


“We are very excited to have Capt. Jim Lovell and Gene Kranz for our Centennial Convocation speakers,” Dr. Amy Andersen, a member of the Centennial Committee, said. “They will speak on the ‘successful failure’ of the Apollo 13 mission with a focus on teamwork and overcoming adversity. It seems an appropriate topic for us as we celebrate 100 years of success here at WTAMU.”

Lovell was flying his fourth mission for NASA in April 1970 when as spacecraft commander of the Apollo 13 flight, he calmly reported to mission control, “Houston, we’ve had a problem.” That simple statement changed the course of history for Apollo 13. The mission was quickly aborted, and Lovell and his fellow astronauts John L. Swigert and Fred W. Haise worked with mission control to overcome the failure of the oxygen system for a safe return home.

And on the ground, Kranz said, “Failure is not an option,” as he helped guide the crippled Apollo 13 spacecraft back home. The Apollo 13 mission was a failure in every sense of the word, but the mission also proved to be a success in terms of team work and diligence in getting the crew back to Earth. Apollo 13 landed safely in the Pacific Ocean on April 17, 1970. The mission attracted the attention of millions and is legendary in the history of human spaceflight.

Lovell joined NASA in 1962 and made his first space flight on the Gemini 7 mission. In 1968 he served as command module pilot and navigator on man’s maiden voyage to the moon on Apollo 8. It was during that mission that Lovell and his fellow crewmen became the first humans to leave the Earth’s gravitational influence.

He retired from the Navy and from NASA’s space program in 1973. He’s been a successful businessman and wrote the bestselling book Lost Moon about the Apollo 13 mission. He now serves as president of Lovell Communications, a firm that promotes public interest in spaceflight.

Kranz joined the NASA Space Task Group in 1960 and was assigned as assistant flight director for Project Mercury. He took on flight director duties for all Project Gemini Missions and served as branch chief for flight control operations. In 1968 he was named division chief for flight control and was director for many Apollo missions, including the ill-fated Apollo 13. He retired from NASA in 1994. He is the author of Failure Is Not An Option and now keeps busy as a consultant and motivational speaker. He also performs at air shows as a flight engineer on a B-17 “Flying Fortress.”

Both Lovell and Kranz are recipients of many awards including the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

WTAMU’s Centennial Convocation is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Andersen at 806-651-2609.

Up In The Air Rally this weekend!


AMARILLO, TEXAS KVII: -- You can achieve your dreams and overcome adversity, that's the message Michael Glen brings to kids from elementary age all the way to college.

Glen is the world's first paraplegic hot air balloon pilot. Monday he was at Amarillo College, delivering his message of reaching goals.

Glen said he hopes his story can encourage and inspire others to reach for the skies, because he knows how hard life can be.

"It took about 10 years time I applied for my license the first year after my accident. I was actually denied by the FAA and 9 years later after that was when I actually got my license and made me the first and only paraplegic in the world to fly a balloon."

Glen is in town for the "Up in the Air for Family Care" a hot air balloon festival, and he will be speaking at area schools throughout the week. Hot air balloons will fill the skies in Amarillo and Canyon on Friday on through Sunday, for the balloon rally.

The rally will feature all sorts of shaped balloons and a handful of regular shapes from across the country. The world famous Lady Bug, Clown N Around, and Cheshire the Cat, will all be appearing at this weekend's event.

The balloon rally will help The Family Care Foundation. The foundation, is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting Panhandle families with qualifying medical expenses.

Schedule of Events:

Oct 15- 7:45 am-Balloons will be "Up in the Air for Family Care". Keep an eye on the skies to see us celebrating with Family Care Foundation! Also, the first Amarillo golf ball drop from a hot air balloon!

With all the rain we had this year, the wild grasses grew high, and thusly - so did the jack rabbits. I Caught this big fellow out NE of town doing some munching and ducking every time a big hawk flew over. I don't think hawks pose much of a threat though - this was a big rabbit!

NWS Spotters Appreciation Picnic ...

Official bird of Amarillo - The Osprey!











I never grow tired or annoyed by these noisy birds buzzing my abode. They are amazing aircraft - a hybrid mix of an airplane and a helicopter. They build them here and test fly them (to the west of Amarillo) at Rick Husband/Amarillo International Airport on the far east side of town. If you haven't seen one-just spend a day here and you will. They have a unique sound.

The Buzzard Air Show

Palo Duro Canyon State Park is renowned for its epic natural beauty and the outdoor musical TEXAS! - but did you know there is another show (of sorts) that takes place nightly at the southern end of the canyon? Local photographers call it "The Buzzard Air Show."

Each year thousands of tourists are drawn to Palo Duro Canyon State Park to take in its beauty - but a group of local photographers and bird watchers have discovered an amazing phenomenon that many never knew existed.

It's been nicknamed The Buzzard Air Show and takes place at sunset - every evening near the Cow Camp Cabins at the southern end of the park. Like a scene out of Hitchcock's "The Birds" - thousands of Turkey Vultures descend on a small group of trees to roost for the night.

For hours - vultures fly into the canyon from all over the Panhandle - filling the sky by the hundreds. The mature birds land first- seemingly acting like air-traffic-controllers - spreading their wings to signal to the orbiting vultures it's time to land.

Ugly and ungainly on the ground but beautiful in the air - these vultures ride the thermals over the mesas in graceful arcs until the last light of day is almost gone, then they descend in waves - all vying and squabbling over the best perches, much to the delight of local photographers.

The Buzzard Air Show begins every night about an hour before sundown with the last of the birds touching down just after dark. There is no charge for the Buzzard Air Show - but there is to enter the park - five dollars per person - well worth it to watch this amazing natural spectacle.

Viewers are advised to bring a camera, binoculars, lawn chairs and an umbrella - because some of the air show participants - uh - can become bombers.

It's a catchy tune Amarillo!

Goodbye Dillas! We hardly knew y'all!


The decision by Potter County Commissioners to end the lease for the Amarillo Dillas (independent; United League Baseball) may have terminated the current version of the team over unpaid rent, but the independent American Association is preparing a bid for the market.

The meeting of the Potter County Commissioners was pretty much a formality: Reunion Sports Group was $75,000 in arrears in rent, had bounced two checks designed to make up the shortfall and totally punted on a third. Making thing worse for the Dillas: the team also has unpaid bills among community vendors. After so many missed deadlines and lack of communications, Potter County officials were ready to pull the plug on the Amarilo Dilla Villa lease.

There was a last-minute pitch by the ULB's John Bryant to retain arguably the best market for United League Baseball (Amarillo was the leader in attendance in the circuit last season, drawing almost 3,000 fans a game), as he asked for a lease extension that would have seen the league make up the $75,000 in January, a Wimpy offer that was rejected by commissioners as coming up short. Stretching things out is pretty much the only way ULB can hang onto the market: if given until January to make up the funds and not having the lease terminated, ULB is pretty much assured to be controlling the ballpark in 2011 -- there just would be so little time for another outfit to come in.

An interested onlooker in the proceedings: Scott Berry, the owner of the American Association's Shreveport-Bossier Captains, who is seeking the market for his circuit.

In the end, the county commissioners voted to terminate the lease, bring the ULB to mediation to work out a payment scheme, and set up a schedule to solicit ballpark bids in the next few weeks. Obviously the American Association will make a play, and we expect ULB to submit one as well: if a lawsuit is on the way, as ULB reps promise, they need to work as though things are normal in the market. (One interesting side note: apparently the county owns the Dillas name, not the ULB.)

Amarillo isn't the only place where ULB owes: Laredo officials tell us the Laredo Broncos are over $40,000 in arrears. The team has been locked out of its offices by the city. In this case, the league already knew it was not returning: a deal brokered last month will see a new ballpark opening in 2012 for an American Association team.

It feels like fall today!


I went out to get my mail and it was actually chilly. Sure, we've been spoiled by the warm and wet weather this year - but today was the first day It felt like fall.

I noticed some trees are also starting to turn and the Halloween decorations are going up around the neighborhood. Can it be October already?
