Borger Creative Arts Club is extending its bazaar.
Falling ceilings, rain, and snow caused the bazaar to start very slow.
Now the plan is to have an extra day.
We will be here to show you the way.
Saturday, Dec. 10, the hours are 9 to 5, celebrating cheerfully, keeping Christmas alive.
On Wednesday evening, the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen made the trip to Altus, Okla. to take on the Western Oklahoma State College Pioneers in non-conference action.
The Pioneers got off to a fast start and were able to build a 21-point lead at halftime.
In the second half, the Plainsmen rallied and were able to pull to within two points with four minutes to play.
But a comeback win was not meant to be, as the Pioneers were able to pull away for the 96-85 win.
The top scorers in the game for the Plainsmen were Montero Rice 16, Akeem Johnson 15, and Kris Harris 14.
A replat of property for the construction of a nursing home in Borger has received official city approval.
During its regular meeting Tuesday, the Borger City Council approved the replat of Blocks 2 & 3, North Park Addition, containing 10.76 acres, to be known as Borger Nursing Facility Subdivision, 900 College Avenue. The request for the replat was made by P&B Senior Living Group, LLC, of Fort Smith, Ark.
Kenneth Petr, Director of Planning and Zoning for the City of Borger, said the nursing home will be a 120-bed facility.
Thanks to an impressive 10-1 start to the 2011-12 season, which includes winning the Miami Tournament this past weekend, the West Texas High Comanches boys basketball team found themselves ranked #23 in the state of Texas in Class 1A Division I, according to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC).
The Comanchesâ€™ lone loss of the season came against a solid Amarillo San Jacinto Patriots team during the Amarillo Highland Park Tournament in late November.
