On Tuesday evening, the Randall Raiders used the final 12 minutes of the game to put an end to the Borger Bulldogsâ€™ playoff hopes by getting the 2-3 win in District 5-4A play.
The Bulldogs held a 2-1 lead and were playing well enough on defense to hang on for the 2-1 win and turn to scoreboard watching the outcome between the Canyon and Amarillo Palo Duro game.
Unfortunately, the game took a dramatic turn in the 69th when the Raiders broke free for an open shot that sailed into the top part of the net to tie the game 2-2.
The Hutchinson County United Way is seeking projects for its Day of Caring this April.
The event is scheduled for April 28, 2012. There will not be a day of caring scheduled this fall.
According to Teri Hogue, who is on the United Way Board of Directors, this particular event is a day when volunteers choose to give their time and services to work on a one-time service project in an effort to impact the communityâ€™s needs with tasks that they are unable to perform themselves.
â€śProjects are dependent upon the manpower available,â€ť she said.
It has come to the attention of the Utility Department of the City of Borger that a company calling itself â€śHome Serviceâ€ť out of Austin, Texas, has been mailing notices regarding water service lines to the citizens of Borger.

The City of Borger wishes to advise its citizens that the City is in no way affiliated with nor do we endorse their product. Citizens should investigate the situation thoroughly before responding to such offers.
