New shooting range approved by county officials A new shooting range was approved to be built by the county commissioners. The American Legion Post 224 will construct this shooting range to be mostly used by the Boy Scouts and 4-H shooters. The public is more than welcome to sign up for yearly memberships and use the range as well. There will be about 10 lanes for the indoor shooting range and about 30 lanes for the outdoor shooting range. Also on the property there will be a teaching facility for instruction on topics that have to do with guns. The ground needs dirt poured and leveling out. This could take a few months to get accomplished for the project to be completed. Game Club visits DISD board meeting

The Game Club from the junior high got to show and talk about their experience in the game club during a recent visit to the Dumas ISD Board of Trustees meeting. While being in the club, the students get to learn how video games are made and also, they get to build a video game of their very own. Jeff Stoughton, who is the sponsor, brought some of his students in the club to the meeting and each student got to say what their experience has taught them. Right now there are 12 students in the club. By the end of the year the club is hoping to have three or four finished video games. They are hoping to try to get the video games published. The board asked to see one of these games when they are finished to see the progress of what is being taught.
