Last night on the Panhandle of Texas. A local Cowboy, CODY CROCKETT of Mclean, TX (population 800) and his Girlfriend, SYDNEY WALLACE along with a third person, Sloan Everett were working together to save their animals and their home. During this time they were caught off guard by the blaze being pushed by 50+ MPH winds.

Firefighters were able to find Cody's Horse, then Cody and transport him to a local hospital, where he sadly passed away this morning. They continued to search the scene and found Sydney. Details regarding Sloan Everett, he is being referred to as a family friend by local media are still coming out These details are being posted by the family, not by official media sources.

Judge Richard Peet said the trio died while trying to save cattle, one from smoke inhalation and two from burns. The first of the three died at 10 p.m., according to Sandi Martin, Gray County’s Emergency Management Coordinator, while the two burn victims were airlifted to Amarillo and Lubbock but did not survive.

During the same blaze, two local Firefighters were also injured. This will be a devastating loss for this community. Sydney was a nurse at BSA Health System in Amarillo, TX.

Please keep Sydney Wallace's family in your prayers as they go through the trials of this week along with Cody Crockett family as they are all coming to terms with this loss, as well as Sloan Everett's family. These folks died protecting life and property..

This is so sad. The cowboy's job is to take care of his/her animals, land, family, friends, and community. Please pray for these people, and their families.

These are the real 'Cowboys', the ones that live the life. My heart and prayers go out to all the loved one's, both family and friends and to all the cowboys who face this ongoing danger every year. God bless all!

I live in Texas and know many people who voted for Trump, many that I know are friends and family, most of them are either too stupid or lazy to work and they get food stamps, free phones and all the stuff repubes have been bitching about, if you lazy trump voters would get off your asses and work as hard as the immigrants that come here you'd have no reason to be whining or hating them. Almost everyone who voted for trump are down deep racists and don't dare try to deny it, I live in Texas and I know your true colors, you were all pissed off when Obama got voted in because your families always swore "no ni**ers in the white House" and now you felt like you had to suck it up and it was eating you alive. You just put as asshole in office who will very well destroy everything this country ever stood for and you're not going to admit that he's a commie pos because then you'd have to admit your complicity in electing him.

You must live in an alternate 817 universe! Here in the real one , those that wear the 'red caps' are the ones that go to work everyday, from the doctors to the ranchers to the construction workers, their taxes pay for the Obama phones and the 3rd generation welfare freeloaders! Look in the mirror and you will see the person that is eaten alive with anger and racism. Many of the contractors that we worked with over the years were legal and they did not appreciate those that abused the system and refused the hard work that it took to become an American. Perhaps you would feel more 'accepted' if you moved to California. AND speaking of toooooo stupid.......Can you find Quote Reply?

I am an 80s kid. Grew up privileged. Skiing was pretty much my life. Politics was all about whether to allow snowboarders or not: what else could possibly matter? I might even have found it tough to name the president. Then I had a horrific accident on the slopes five years ago. In a coma for almost three months and woke up with partial paralysis to my right side. I did not take it well--and finally got the moniker of "Winona Whyner" (my first name is Winona) after months of non-stop complaining and self-pity. But the accident was a good thing, well, eventually. It took a year, or more like two, I guess, before I came to accept my fate and began to move on. If not for family and friends that never deserted me but never got out of my face about my 'complaining and self-pity,' I would not have the wonderful life I have today. I want to give life as it was unselfishly given to me. The reason I am here is to try and inject hope into our politics in this country. After my injuries and slow recovery, I finally began to notice how divided our nation was, and it was not all about snowboards or skis. Impossible to say now if I may make a difference, but I am here to try. I use these pictures of when I was younger as a symbol of my knowledge on politics.

WHO the hell is Ruminator ? Some cud chewing colvin hoofed grass eating liberal? Never saw that name here before.

Yes it is once again the one and only Rumitoid!!! I have a notebook filled with Rumi and many of his personalities. He has become very easy to 'spot' after creating so many characters that use the same favorite words like Curious, too funny, or too frk funny, down the rabbit hole, Aarrgg are a few of his. They also posts at the same time which is late at night thru the early morning hours. He hates Christians, NRA, gun owners that believe that they have the right to defend themselves, conservatives, especially the tea party and he attacks Pennylynn and Lindajoy viciously. You can go to the 'user list' and do a comparison of Rumitoid, Fiatlux, Dr.Dross, Huminator and that is just a drop in the bucket!! You will understand after you read and compare and see that they all say the same thing. Pay close attention to his sermons on Love your Enemies. Everyone of these personalities are obsessed with this 'belief'!!!! He would make some Psychiatrist a fantastic case study.

This ACA control you speak, of is that similar to "old white men in Washington dictating how poor young women of all backgrounds and colors, should make choices about their lives.?"

Are you referring to those women who choose to murder their babies as a form of birth control?

I'm with ya! ! !What can these dunces know besides the propaganda fed to them by the Republicans! Most of the don't even know why they voted for Trump. Here's the answer: he's a good con man and I feel for them - especialy when they finally come to realize that fact.

Alicia,Alicia,Alicia!!! What do you call the parroting scripted dialogue that you constantly spew? Do you not read replies from conservatives or do you just not remember? We constantly shout to the rooftop why we voted for President Trump. I would tell you but I'm sure you would just ignore it or forget it! Where do you come up with these asinine assumptions?

To be fair Let's see what the Republicans have done since Obama been in office!

Obama did do lot of things even without Repubs support....and seems Repubs never agree with that is the list I found on web.....lets see if someone willing to still refute....

Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas- A bill that would have eliminated a tax break that companies get when they ship jobs overseas. Republicans blocked this, allowing companies to keep the tax break they receive when they ship jobs to other countries.
Political Ad disclosure bill- Would have required all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves. Republicans blocked this, not once but twice.
Subpoena Power for the Committee investigating the BP Oil Spill – Give subpoena power to the independent committee responsible for investigating BP’s roll in the oil spill. Republicans attempted to block this.
The Small Business Jobs Act -would give LOCAL, community banks access to billions of dollars to loan to small businesses. Republicans blocked this, then attempted to block it a second time and failed.
The DREAM Act- Gives immigrant youth who were brought here as children a path to citizenship by earning a college degree or serving the military for 2 years. Republicans blocked this.
Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”- Would have repealed the law that forces gay and lesbian services members to lie about their sexuality and gives the military the right to discharge soldiers based on their sexuality. Republicans blocked this many times and Democrats were finally able to pass it with the support of just 2 Republicans.
Senator Franken’s Anti-Rape Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill – Makes it so that women raped overseas while working for foreign contractors have the right to have their case heard in an American court instead of having their case mediated by the company they work for. Only Republican men voted against this, but it passed.
Benefits for Homeless Veterans- Would have expanded benefits to homeless veterans and homeless veterans with children. Republicans blocked this.
Affordable Health Care For America Act- Prevents insurance companies from discriminating against you on the basis of “pre-existing conditions”. Requires that insurance companies spend 85 cents of every dollar that you pay on your actual health care. Limits health insurance companies profit margins. Republicans blocked this for months before it finally passed and have vowed to repeal it if they are elected.
Health Care for the 9/11 First Responders who got sick from being at Ground Zero- Would provide billions of dollars in health care to help the 9/11 First Responders who were at Ground Zero on 9/11 and are now sick because of it. Republicans blocked this.
The Jobs Bill- Offsets the payroll tax for 1 year for companies that hire new employees, or people receiving unemployment insurance. Also gives other tax incentives to companies hiring new employees. Republicans attempted to block this.
Wall Street Reform- Puts stricter regulations on the banks, preventing them from becoming “too big to fail”. Curbs reckless spending practices that caused the banking crisis. Republicans attempted to block this.
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act- Pumped billions of dollars into state and local Governments to prevent us from sinking into a second Great Depression. Republicans opposed this but now want to take credit for the parts of it that we know are successful.
Oil Spill Liability- Raises the liability on what companies can be made to pay to clean up after an oil spill. Republicans blocked this.
Immigration Reform- Republican suggested comprehensive immigration reform until Obama supported it. Now they’re rabidly opposed to it and even voted against their own legislation. Republicans blocked this.
Unemployment extension bill HR-4213- Would provide additional aid to the millions of Americans still on unemployment who are just trying to support themselves and their families. Republicans blocked this bill for 8 weeks before it finally passed. Republicans blocked this for 8 weeks before it finally passed.
Fair Pay Act of 2009- Also called the Lily Ledbetter bill. Requires that women receive equal compensation to men for doing the same work. Republicans attempted to block this.
No permanent military bases in Afghanistan.
Report identifying hybrid or electric propulsion systems and other fuel-saving technologies for incorporation into tactical motor vehicles.
Protection of child custody arrangements for parents who are members of the Armed Forces deployed in support of a contingency operation.
Improvements to Department of Defense domestic violence programs.
Department of Defense recognition of spouses of members of the Armed Forces.
Department of Defense recognition of children of members of the Armed Forces.
Enhancements to the Troops-to-Teachers Program.
Fiscal year 2011 increase in military basic pay.
Improving aural protection for members of the Armed Forces.
Comprehensive policy on neurocognitive assessment by the military health care system.
Authority to make excess nonlethal supplies available for domestic emergency assistance.
And those were just some of the progressive provisions. On the conservative side, there are these, and more:

Prohibition on the use of funds for the transfer or release of individuals detained at United States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Prohibition on the use of funds to modify or construct facilities in the United States to house detainees transferred from United States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Prohibition on use of funds to give Miranda warnings to Al Qaeda terrorists.

Now what have Republicans done for The Poor and Black People who are not Toadies Lately? Maybe they should close their flaps for awhile!

Good evening CB. I don't think it is a secret that we conservatives are not that happy with the accomplishments of the republicans over the last 8 years! That's why we elected President Trump, a non-politician. Does he have a big mouth? Yes and he says what he thinks and feels, it's not scripted! Politicians have to take an opinion poll before they speak, they're more interested in maintaining their popularity than doing what is best for our country. President Trump will help the poor and black by cleaning up the neighborhood and creating jobs, making more safe for the families that live there, but these people are going to have to do their part. The democrates just throw a little welfare at them instead of actually looking at the problems and giving them the chance to actually change their life for them and future generations. The democrates needed to keep them dependent on them, thereby controlling the vote. President Trump heard what the average Jo Blow said all across America. We will always be a country divided into different political parties, that's what makes us a great Nation. It would be disastrous is one party totally ruled our government, but right now it's the conservatives turn and the left needs to take a deep breath and stop the childish temper-tantrums. It's going to get to the point that we are pushed into the corner with all the bullying and violence and we will push back! I really don't want to see this happen and I hope the animosity will soon stop. It's time we get back to living our lives IMO. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! Pray for our troops and Israel
