This weekend all three Hutchinson County high schools will be a part of the nine team field in the 2011 Sanford-Fritch Volleyball Tournament.
The tournament gets underway Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. with pool play, followed by bracket play starting around 3:30 p.m. and continuing on Saturday at Sanford-Fritch High School.
Pool A will consist of Sanford-Fritch, Borger, Memphis, Perryton and Childress. Pool B will have teams from West Texas High, Amarillo Highland Park, Ft. Elliott and Amarillo Holy Cross.
Myrtle Haner, 88, of Borger, passed away Monday, August 15, 2011.
Myrtle was born Friday, June 22, 1923 to Pearl & Lucy May (Wiley) Haner in Sheridan Lake, CO. Myrtle was a trusted and lasting friend to all she met. In her own way, she would always try to repay a favor multiple times. She was a homemaker and a member of Franklin Street Church of Christ in Borger, TX.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two sisters, Effie May (Haner) Clements in May 2007 and Faye O. Haner in 1981; and a brother, Glenn W. Haner in 1977.
An exceptionally long life seems almost like a miracle. The life of Teresa (Slavin) Reed of the Potawatomi National tribe is a good example.
On December 6, 2011, Teresa will be 109. Mrs. Reed is originally from Pampa, and Teresa spent most of her life teaching children. She taught in Pampa elementary schools until she retired at age 70.
But, she wasnâ€™t finished, heading to the Southwest to teach on an Indian Reservation. Teresa continued operating a motor vehicle at 103 and lived at home until she was 105, when she was moved to Wheeler Nursing Center.
