BNH welcomes new sports editor

August 2, 2012

Hello, Borger! I am your new sports editor for the Borger News Herald.
I spent the first 18 years of my life growing up in Morse, Tx just north of Borger.
I went to Pringle-Morse until 8th grade, and I graduated in 2002 from West Texas High (Go Comanches!).
I graduated from WTAMU in Canyon with a business degree in 2007. My son, Jace was also born that year. He is a fantastic four year old, and probably knows more about sports than I do.

Xcel Energy power supply improves, conservation still encouraged

August 1, 2012

Xcel Energy had a large generating unit offline, and some concerns about another unit. The company declared an energy alert for its Texas-New Mexico system yesterday, but got through the peak of the day in good shape. The generator in question came back online last evening and is approaching full load. Barring any unforeseen maintenance issues, it expects to be in better condition today. Should that situation change, Xcel Energy would re-issue the energy alert.
