When looking at the scores of the first three rounds of the District 1-3A Golf Tournament, it was almost a foregone conclusion that the Borger Bulldog Varsity team was going to claim the District 1-3A title unless they experienced an monumental collapse.
The burn ban in Hutchinson County will continue.
During its regular meeting Tuesday, the Hutchinson County Commissioners Court voted to extend the burn ban for another 90 days.
County Fire Marshal Danny Richards told the court, â€śWe are extremely vulnerable.â€ť This item was unanimously agreed upon and was put into effect yesterday.
A burn ban was initially approved by the court in January of this year.
The ban prohibits the burning of trash and any type of burning in open pits. It will not affect farmers who do agricultural burning, but does restrict other types of outdoor burning.
The District 1-3A Track Meet will take place tomorrow and Thursday at Ranger Stadium in Perryton.
Listed is a schedule of events.
