John Cornyn says that the U.S. could become a much safer and securer nation if we would just change one thing. The U.S. Senate candidate stopped in Lubbock on Friday to explain. Cornyn says it is time our nation reduces its dependence on foreign oil. He is pushing for the passage of President Bush's balanced energy plan. Such policy would encourage the exploration of domestic energy sources. Cornyn also announced his support for a tax credit for marginal wells, to increase Texas oil and gas production.

Also in Lubbock Friday, they walked, they crawled, and some even flew to Christ the King Cathedral School. Students brought their pets to class, for a special processional ceremony called the "Blessing of the Animals." It is a custom conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures.

It takes a little more than a blessing nowadays to keep your children safe. That's why parents are invited to bring their children to a free child safety program here in Lubbock on Saturday. LifePrint will collect a sample of your child's DNA, which will be stored in a vial which you keep. The sample then last up to 80 years. Just stop by Gene Messer Ford on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to pick up your free kit.
