By ARNIE LESHIN

Under Ron Drake, the district Coach of the Year, Pecos finished at 20-8 overall, 9-0 in district, and had its 8-game win streak snapped when it lost at home to Loving in the state tournament first round.

The Power of Speech
By Billy Graham
"Submit yourselves therefore to God ..." —James 4:7
You have a tongue and a voice. These instruments of speech can be used destructively or employed constructively. You can use your tongue to slander, to gripe, to scold, to nag, and to quarrel; or you can bring it under the control of God's Spirit and make it an instrument of blessing and praise. The 20th-century version of James 3:3 says, "When we put bits into the horses' mouths to make them obey us, we control the rest of their bodies also." Just so, when we submit to the claims of Christ upon our lives, our untamed natures are brought under His control. We become mee>
