Local firm playing role in road work here

A local trucking company is working in familiar territory after winning the subcontractor bid on the current project to renovate portions of Highways 180 and 137 through Lamesa. The company, D&E Logistics, won the bid to provide hauling for contractor Allen Butler Company of Lubbock. D&E’s trucks haul away the asphalt being scrapped away from the roadway. New material eventually will replace it during the construction.

A warning, at least this time

Texas automobile driver was “tooling” down a rural highway on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Most motorists had already reached destinations, or maybe decided not to go. He felt alone, not another vehicle in sight on a long stretch of pavement. Suddenly, flashing lights in his rearview mirror were strong indicators that he wasn’t alone. Further, he wondered if his definition of “tooling” might run sideways with the A definition understood by the Department of Public Safety trooper ambling toward his parked vehicle.
