farmington new mexico community still sending kind thoughts to injured jonesville la bull rider corbin carpenter

excerpt from a piece captioned "check your list, mr. claus" written by farmington, new mexico, the daily-times, sports writer, darren vaughan:

Please be kind to Louisiana cowboy Corbin Carpenter this year and give him the chance to fulfill his dream of competing in rodeo again. He gave us all quite a scare back in July when he suffered a broken neck after falling off of a bull, but he's been a true inspiration since as he's regained his ability to walk. It'd be a gift not only to him, but to all of us, to see him get back in the arena again.
