for December 9, 2016
all treasure the ability to give our family members and dear ones a little
something for Christmas, but such a thing is a virtual impossibility for
44 year old Mrs. L from Christmas Stocking Fund Case 146.
mother of a daughter, 8, and sons ages 16 and 1, Mrs. L. is battling a
brain tumor and is unable to work to support her family. Currently living
with her mother, Mrs. L. is scheduled to begin radiation treatment of the
tumor in January.
such an overwhelming health challenge, Mrs. L. is unable to provide
necessities, let alone niceties for her family this Christmas. She has
asked CSF for aid with clothing and food for her children.
Christmas Stocking Fund attempts to address such needs through the
generosity of Hereford and Deaf Smith County residents who support the
homegrown holiday charity. CSF volunteers give the young and the elderly
top priority for assistance including food, utilities, medical and
pharmacy bills, and clothing. Assistance other than food is via vouchers
payable to merchants, utilities, or medical facilities cooperating with
CSF. Food is boxed and delivered.
to CSF may be made in-person at First Bank Southwest at 300 North Main or
mailed to CSF at the same address. Contributors may remain anonymous if
Radio is highlighting cases daily at 8:40 and 4:40 during the December CSF
drive and listing donors; updates also appear on Facebook and the KPAN
homepage at www.kpanradio.com.
Donor names also appear on local cable channels 1 and 21 courtesy of WT
Services, and are posted regularly on a display board in the lobby of
First Bank Southwest.

Welcome to an on-line visit to the Texas Panhandle, where the people are genuine, the ground meets the sky in an unbroken line and they call the wind Mariah.....Carey. Or on some days there are other names for the wind. Where cows outnumber people 10 to 1. Where malcontents and ne'er-do-wells are still allowed daily access to loaded sidearms and live microphones. Where you can still be home on the range. Where the land is flat and the deck is stacked and the ladies.....are angels. Where money talks and men are real men and the livestock are.....real nervous.

When the little radio station went on the air in 1948, the army barracks you see at the left was home to a simple studio and a handful of folks who were excited about bringing the latest technology to Hereford. Now, with the fourth generation of the Formby family clicking keyboards to put KPAN on the Internet, we are still excited about the latest technology to bring radio's one-to-one communication to you, our on-line listener. KPAN still has much of the original vision of 1948, a full-service radio station for a community, daily providing music, sports, advertising, journalism, weather, ag info, opinion, markets and fun for Hereford -- and now for you, wherever you choose to log on.
