Diners from around the area enjoyed a variety of foods on Tuesday night at the Borger News-Heraldâ€™s Taste of Hutchinson County held at the Aluminum Dome.
Over 250 people filled the Dome while eighteen restaurants served up some of the tastiest grub this side of Dallas.
Ever since Borgans dragged Main Street on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012 it is becoming a monthly occurrence every second Saturday of the month. Only now it is for a good cause. Citizens of the county will hop in their cars and cruise Main or park and enjoy some fall festivities.
Frank Phillips College honored cancer survivors at their home game Monday night when they hosted the Dig For the Cure at the BCAC. Donations were accepted at both doors, and the survivors in attendance were presented with a rose and recognition in between games. Fans were all adorned in pink to cheer on the Lady Plainsmen, and the volleyball players wore pink ribbons and armbands to keep with the theme of the night. Pink sugar cookies and pink lemonade were served free of charge at the concession stand. It was a special night honoring those who have fought the cancer battle and won.
The first Taste of Hutchinson County came off as a complete success, thanks to all the participating restaurants and other vendors, said event coordinator, Stephanie Hooper.
Hundreds of area residents came out to the Aluminum Dome on Tuesday night to help raise money for the Borger Satellite Workshop. More information in tomorrowâ€™s paper!

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.
