The clock started ticking Wednesday at 9:50 a.m., when the green light went out and the yellow one lit up in the communications room at the center of the day’s tornado drill.
“That puts everybody in place at their positions,” said Maribel Martinez, assistant emergency management coordinator of the Amarillo/Potter/Randall Office of Emergency Management.

During a women’s retreat in 2007, Chriss Clifford first set eyes on Umbarger’s St. Mary’s Catholic Church and its murals, which were painted by Italian men living in a Hereford prisoner-of-war camp during World War II.
