As families across the country get ready to kick off the summer and honor our military heroes this Memorial Day weekend, local officials urge motorists to stay safe on the road during a time of year when drunk driving deaths typically increase.
Over Memorial Day weekend in 2011, 158 people were killed in drunk driving crashes nationwide.
A tip for safe driving over the holiday weekend and year-round is to plan a safe way home.
The time has come to purchase luminarias for this yearâ€™s Hutchinson County Relay For Life event.
Citizens are encouraged to honor a friend or loved one who is fighting a battle with cancer or remember someone who is lost with a American Cancer Society RFL of Hutchinson County Luminaria.
Luminarias may be purchased for a donation and will be featured in a special ceremony during Relay 2012, set for June 8 and 9, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., at Huber Park in Borger.
Every forgotten animal needs a good place to call home and someone to call family.
Coming up on Monday, June 2, 2012, Borger Animal Control and Troop 31 BSA will host â€śAll Pets in the Panhandleâ€ť as an Eagle Scout Project.
This event will take place in front of Wal-Mart in Borger.
Also, the North Shore Adoption Bus â€“ associated with North Shore Animal League and National Dog Mill Rescue - will be on hand.
