The Borger City Council has granted an abeyance on allowing motor home and recreational vehicles in residential areas.
The action was taken by the council at its regular meeting Tuesday. An abeyance is temporary inactivity, cessation, or suspension.
Kenneth Petr, director of planning and zoning for the City of Borger, said with the temporary influx of construction workers for the Phillips Petroleum turnaround, temporary housing arrangements are needed.
With Thanksgiving a little over a month away, Living Water Ministries is seeking to provide its clients with a great
Thanksgiving meal through a Bag of Blessing.
Living Water has adjusted the contents of the bag to make it as affordable as ever, and still give its clients a
wonderful meal for Thanksgiving. Bags of Blessings need to be returned to Living Water by Nov. 8 so it will have time to
get organized. Messages can also put in the bags if people so choose.
Churches, organizations, Sunday Schools, schools, and the public are asked to be a part of this project.

(A big thank you to Eric Rodewald who covered the Friday night football game in our sports editor's absence.)
In the final non-district contest for the Bulldogs, Borger pounded its way to a 19-0 lead behind the backfield tandem of Dontrae Butler and Kendrick Freeman. The two Borger running backs rushed 58 times for a combined 260 yards before Palo Duro raced back Friday night dropping the Bulldogs in a heartbreaker, 20-19 at Bulldog Stadium.
On October 5th, 1962, the Borger Bulldogs took the field against the Palo Duro Dons in front of a home crowd of 6,000 fans. It was the first district game in a season that has been unmatched by any Bulldog football team ever. On this same day in 2012, we honor those men who were a part of that legendary team.
