(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.

Lake Meredith National Recreation area invites everyone to come celebrate fall with a ranger-led morning hike along the Canadian River.
Wanda D. King and Debb Webb have been busy this week getting Borger City Hall all ready for the fall season. With the cool weather, the pumpkins, and the scarecrows, it is safe to say fall is definitely in the air!
