It's been a long hard few months for the family and staff at Rumor's Bar on 10th Street. If you go on Google Maps they are listed as Temporarily Closed.

They closed down back in March after the owner, Cindy Jayroe, was killed by a stray bullet fired from the parking lot. The community felt a huge loss.

They have been closed since then. It's been a hard recovery. There is no doubt that it was difficult for many. This bar was her life and she ran it and it has taken some time to pull all the pieces together and get it up and running again.

They knew as a bar family it would have to reopen again to honor Cindy. That is why on Google Maps it was just listed as Temporarily Closed. The announcement came out this week on the Rumors Facebook page:

I am happy to announce that Rumors will be opening up again for business Wednesday June 30th!! Our new days of operation will be Wednesday through Saturday and our new hours of operation will be from Noon until Midnight. Please be understanding and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again!!

This is great news for our community. We do not want to see a business close down. That is never good. Our community is going to be able have a place to come together and honor the life of Miss Cindy.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
