You too can relive MICAH’S joy as she truly is a winner and the judge congratulates her.




And now our SOFT SPOKEN,MILD MANNERED, Mr. Wyatt Harlan asks you to attend our show this Saturday, January 6th starting at 10 am to enjoy the culinary expertise, the silent and live auction and best of all to see our future leaders in action showing sheep, goats, hogs, steers and best of all the pee wee division.

Family roots run deep: In 1956 to 1960 the young man in the middle was a member of the Slaton FFA and now grandsons and granddaughters are carrying on the tradition.

The support from our community helps send these leaders of tomorrow to a real history class.

MEURER – Elect Mark Meurer


Thank you for being here.  My name is Mark Meurer.  I am grateful to be here today to announce my intent to run for Justice of the Peace Precinct 2.  I have lived in Precinct 2 most of my life and I want to serve these people justly, fairly and in a manner, that is respectful and follows the law.  This court is the people’s court and the best way for me to serve is by being is this office.  I know where the law and business intersect.

I have 22 years’ experience in the financial services industry, part of which was helping people save money for their later years in life.  I served as an Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction.  This involved building an organization to the point of becoming a National Marketing Director with insurance agents and securities licensed representatives across the United States. An additional part of my responsibility was to make sure our representatives and agents were in compliance on the securities side of the business.  I was also an Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction over all my organizational branch offices.  This meant conducting internal inspections of branch offices to insure compliance within security laws, review customer records, maintain a record of customer complaints and conduct meetings regarding compliance.  So, I have a good amount of experience related to the law.

I am a business man and involved in numerous organizations and serve on many boards for non-profit organizations that represent our community.  I am currently president of the Slaton Senior Citizens board, Chairman for the Slaton Area Endowment, Board rep for the Community Foundation of West Texas, a member of Lions Club and several others.

The past 11 years, I have served at Mercy Retreat Center.  First as co-director and the past several years I have been the Director, trying to help make each retreat groups experience a memorable one.  One of the first things the past director said to me was…we are here to serve the people that come through the door.   I am also active within our church community in several capacities. So, these things combined is how I have tried to live a life of service and make a difference.

I have had the opportunity to sit in Jim Dulin’s court room to observe and learn the different aspects of a court.  I have learned that litigants of both sides will be listened to equally and be treated fairly.  This precinct is a high-volume court where everyone can come without an attorney and feel comfortable.  My goal as Justice of the Peace is for this court to continue to treat each person with respect and dignity   I want to make a difference in the lives of people that come through the court room, especially the young people. The younger generation is our future.  I believe the court room can be a place to help and encourage all who have a reason to be here.

This court is the people’s court and I want to continue to serve our community and represent Precinct 2 by being your next Justice of the Peace.

Veterans Honor Ceremony @ Slaton High School 11-10-2017

Mr. Shaye Murphy, Our Principal at Slaton High School. Please read his welcome address below here:

Welcome address by Shaye Murphy.

The year is 1919. The United States has spent the past year recovering from what was thought to be the “war to end all wars” World War I saw the deaths of 116,516 soldiers, along with the introduction of tank warfare and the use of poison gas. On November 11,  1918, the war finally came to an end. Now, one year later on November 11, the nation is eager to honor its heroes, both those who died in battle and those who made it home, and thus Veterans Day was created in 1919.
The above picture is of Bill Kitten of Slaton, Texas who was in World War I.
He is the TRIPLE GREAT UNCLE of: Kade Kitten, Grant Kitten, Rachyl Kitten, Grace Parker, Mary Jo Parker, Trevor Wright and Trent Wright — to name a few.
These few mentioned above are the 7th Generations of the Kitten Family to live in Slaton, Texas.

Slaton High School’s program shows Principal Shaye Murphy as one who dares to step up to doing the inspirational welcome address, a presentation of the missing man at the single table, and the closing remarks about  we are free because of those who paid the ultimate price with their life for our country for you see freedom is not free at all.
