News-Press Editorial: MCHD expansion project Moore County Hospital District, in an attempt to further its efforts to provide quality health care to the residents of the district, has come up with a plan of action. Following a failed bond election in which taxpayers said no to a $49 million bond that would have allowed for the construction of a new hospital and assisted living center, MCHD's board and management began exploring other options. The option that they feel works best is adding on to the existing structure, relocate services there and eventually remodeling the "old" portion of the building. Remembering D-Day on 70th anniversary As we observe the 70th anniversary of “the longest day,” D-Day, June 6, 1944, I’m reminded of so many Texans who charged the coast of Normandy heeding the words of their commander, Gen. Eisenhower: “Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!” Dumas was a great site for PPA convention Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this past week was a fun and exciting time for those of us in the newspaper business. It is the time we all gather for our annual press convention, and this year’s convention was a little more special as it took place right here in Dumas.
