El Zarape Mexican Food and Tortilla Factory opened their doors in October of this year. Owners are brothers Jorge and Erick Alderete, and many other family members log hours to keep the business up and running smoothly.
Yolanda Varela is one of those family members, saying, â€śI am helping out when I can. I have to help these boys get organized!â€ť

During the holiday season, DPS and local law enforcement want to make sure the roads are safe by increasing patrols from December 21 through January 1, which includes both the Christmas and New Year holidays.
DPS troopers and Borger PD will focus mostly on DWI patrols in areas where alcohol-related crashes are most frequent. The enhanced patrols that target intoxicated drivers are funded through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation.
Even though a winter chill is in the air, the City of Borger is already making plans for the upcoming summer.
