All the news you may have missed!
The Cubs won their home opener and first game with home town boy Zayne McPherson at the helm. They defeated Big Spring by a score of 85-65 and had a great showing with three players finishing in double figures. The Cubs won’t be at home again until December 1, but the Lady Cubs will be home on Saturday hosting Lubbock Christian at 3:30.
#lightupbrownfieldfortheholidays is catching on. What that means is that everyone is being encouraged to really light up their houses and yards this year for the holidays. We want to really light up Brownfield for the holidays! With that in mind, here are a couple people who would love to help you out with your lighting!
Meadow FFA is at it again! Here is what they posted: “The Meadow FFA Food Box Drive was a huge success! We have collected enough for our 30 box goal with some extra. If you still would like to donate, please bring it to the AG Shop. All aged FFA members are encouraged to come help deliver boxes on Sunday Nov. 23rd 3:00 at the Ag Shop.” We would add a big WAY TO GO!
And speaking of food, don’t forget Smokin’ 8’s Barbecue lunch for First Responders! Don’t we love our small town, always stepping up!
There was a Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday at the Terry County Country Store’s new location on West Main. A great crowd turned out to look over the items in this new and fun addition to Brownfield’s retail scene! Stop by and see what all the fuss is about.

Our COVID numbers remain high, but the good news is that many, many are making full recoveries.
Terry County total cases: 851
13 New cases confirmed
These numbers were as of Wednesday evening. What you don’t really see in these numbers is that there were 27 additional patients marked recovered from the last time numbers were released, which was two days earlier. So we are making some progress. Maybe. We still need to remember to stay safe and practice safe social distancing and wear masks!
In the “kind of interesting category,” we posted a picture and short story from Tales of Texas about Quanah Parker, who most know has some ties to this area. Legend has it that old Mr. Brownfield was a friend of his and gave his people some beef to keep them going through a rough patch.
In 1884, the same year his Star House was built, Quanah Parker obtained an 1862 photograph of his mother Cynthia Ann Parker with his two-year-old sister Prairie Flower. He finally owned a memento of his white mother who had been taken away from him by the Texas Rangers in 1858. Cowan’s Auctions sold this photograph of the chief standing next to the portrait for a $3,500 bid on December 9, 2009.
There will be another Ribbon Cutting on Thursday, November 19. This time at Dusty Creek Gifts and More. This store is located behind Prosperity Bank on Tahoka Road.
The funny for the day is from Facebook and you might get a chuckle out of it!
And for something to think about! This is off Instagram.
