I remember driving by one day and noticing the Hastings Distribution Center was gone. I had heard about this place that Amarillo Independent School District was putting up. I didn't know much about it.
I have always been a big fan of Market Street. That is where I do ALL of my shopping. I remember when it opened. I was thrilled to have a grocery store in my neighborhood again. I remember the days of Homeland being where the Dollar Tree is now.
Lemonade Day has been a part of the Amarillo community for a few years now. It's a great day that kids learn all about starting and running a business. What better way to learn than by opening up their own lemonade stand?

On this “May The Force (4th) Be With You Day”. I can say I am one of the few who haven’t watched all of the “Star Wars” movies. I haven’t. When I tell people this I usually get a look of disbelief.
