Underage drinking has become more of a problem over the years.
According to raw data from the Borger Police Department Record system, the number of minors charged with possession, consumption, and driving under the influence has almost doubled since 2011 and 2012.
In 2011, there were 100 minors charged and in 2012, the number increased to 176 in Borger alone.

The City of Stinnett is facing new changes.
At last weekâ€™s city council meeting, Police Chief Marie Farbro was released from duty during an open session. She was released for â€śwork performance issues.â€ť
Farbro has been part of the Stinnett Police since 2007 and police chief for almost two years. City Manager Mark Anderson has stepped up to fill this position until a new chief has been found.
Another change the city has seen is the resignation of Matt Daffer, Public Works Director. Daffer was Public Works Director for a year.
