What Bert Has To Say About Lubbock Metro Area


Lubbock is the commercial, educational and cultural center for the southern part of the Texas Panhandle known as the South Plains. The economic base is a mix of industry, agriculture, government, and healthcare. There is a small high tech industry but most employment is provided by agriculture-related businesses, healthcare and education.
