Former Mayor Alan and Cassandra “Sandy” Henry have said civic service is a duty and they’ve done their part.

Alan was a five-term city councilman/two-term mayor who served as head of the Texas Municipal League and had a lake named after him. He pushed for creation of a resevoir, Lake Alan Henry, as a future water supply for Lubbock.

He has served a president of the Lubbock Area Foundation and was named to the board of directors of American State Bank and American State Financial Corp. He has been involved in the South Plains Councils of Boy Scouts of America, United Way, YMCA, Goodwill Industries, Southwest Rotary Club and other organizations.

Sandy has contributed to the Lubbock science community through her development of Science Spectrum Inc., where she is president.

She is a member of various museum and science professional groups and various other service and civic groups.

The Maines Family

 

For about a half century, they’ve been a musical force out of West Texas. It began in the 1950s, when James, Wayne and Raymond Maines started the Maines Brothers.

The next generation … James’ sons Lloyd, Steve Kenny and Donnie … created the Maines Brothers Band, recording and touring mostly in the 1980s. The band also included Jerry Brownlow, Richard Bowden, Cary Banks and sister La Tronda Maines Moyers. The Maines Brothers Band rarely performs these days, but Lloyd is still in demand for his steel guitar playing and Kenny still performs solo gigs around town.

But the third generation of the family to go into music has been the most successful. Lloyd’s daughter Natalie joined the Dixie Chicks and helped the trio reach international stardom, winning five Grammy awards in 2006. The Lubbock High School grad also created controversy here for her political comments and the song “Lubbock Or Leave It.” The third generation also continues locally with Kenny and Donnie’s sons ,who play in bands.
