Summer will officially be here within the next few days. That, as parents know, means children will be out of school with nothing to do.
Parents can make summer fun for kids and keep them occupied through the county libraries’ Summer Reading Club. Local children can participate in the program at all three branches of the Hutchinson County Library, which has outlets in Borger, Fritch and Stinnett, all summer long.

Being humans, we are susceptible to many different things. As the weather warms, the toll the heat takes on our bodies is far from negligible.

At around 3:35 pm on Saturday, May 3rd, Fritch Fire Department was called out to an incident on Yantis Road in Fritch.
