On Feb. 16, much of North Texas was hit with an arctic front, including Olney. The front dumped above average snowfall for the region, burying much of Olney under more than a foot of snowfall.
Air Tractor’s Vice President of Finance, David Ickert, has recently retired following 31 years of employment. Upon returning to Olney in 1976, Ickert’s wife Marilynn began working at Air Tractor, with Ickert joining her in 1989.
Girl Scout Troop 8504—represented by Madison Spurlock, Keela King, Laney Kimbro and Bailey Spurlock—appeared before the mayor and City Council members Monday, Feb. 8, to get approval for Lake Cooper Cleanup Day March 20.

I met Lt. Col. Allen West at the Young County Republican gala last year. He was friendly, politically savvy and confident. As the keynote speaker, he articulated his conservative ideas eloquently to an audience eager for winning strategies and solidarity. West’s most intriguing characteristic at that moment was his humility. He said, “We should always remember that freedom is not possible without a price.” It was a welcomed reminder to honor our servicemen and servicewomen. West continued, “So, if you have served our country as a Soldier, Airman, Marine, Coast Guard and as Law Enforcement Agents, please stand so we can give you a round of applause.”
