Borger band is preparing for another great year.
The Borger Band students began practicing
on August 4, 2014. Practices will be held Monday,
Tuesday, Thursday, and
Friday night from 6pm to
9pm ending on August 22,
2014. Kevin Kuehler, the
high school band director, says that 85 kids have
signed-up for band this
year. There are approx. 35
freshman, 18 sophomores,
10 juniors, and 22 seniors.
Drum majors for this year
are Christian Marr, a senior, and Jasmine Esquivel,
a junior.
This years show will
come from the Broadway
musical Les Miserables.
Three songs will be showcased during the band’s
halftime presentation at the
Borger Bulldog Football
Games. At The End of The
Day, I Dream the Dream,
and a medley of 2 songs,
Do You Hear the People
Sing? and On My Own.
The band’s halftime show,
under UIL rules, must be at
least five minutes, but no
more than eight minutes.
Mr Kuehler says this show
will last for seven minutes.
He choose Les Miserables
because he saw the show
in Orlando, Florida right
out of college and loved
the music.
Mr Kuehler became
the head band director at
Borger High School for
the 2000-2001 school year.
This is his fifteenth year
to work with the kids in
this position. I asked Mr.
Kuehler why he decided
to become a band teacher.
He replied, “I was in the
band during my freshman
through senior years of
high school, and I enjoyed
the discipline and regimentation the band provided.”
This discipline is someSee Band on page 2

LIGHT
Continued from Page 1
known as the Lighthouse of Alexandria,
it was destroyed by an
earthquake in the 1300's.
The oldest working
lighthouse today is La
Coruna, on the northwest
tip of Spain, it was built
by the Romans in the early 2nd Century A.D.
As culture developed, the source of the
light itself has evolved.
Originally, wood was
burnt, then animal fat,
eventually kerosene was
used until the invention
of electricity. Most lighthouses today are solar
powered.
In the United States,
37 states have lighthouses, for a total of approximately 680 working lighthouses. The East Coast
is home to 391 of them,
while the West Coast
has approximately 94.
The state with the most
number of lighthouses is
Michigan, having 120.
In the past, lighthouses were manned
by a lighthouse keeper
- today, they are fully
automated, with the exception of one. The last
manned lighthouse is
also the first lighthouse
on American soil. The
Boston Light, on Little
Brewster Island, still
has a lighthouse keeper.
While it was the first, it's
not the oldest original
lighthouse. Built in 1716,
it was damaged severely
during the American
Revolution and rebuilt in
1783. The oldest original
lighthouse was built in
1764 at Sandy Hook, NJ it's still flashing today.
The tallest lighthouse
is on Cape Hatteras, North
Carolina, it stands at 193
feet. The brightest lighthouse is the one on Oak
Island, North Carolina. It
burns at an amazing 14
million candlepower and
is visible 24 miles out to
sea.
The first electric
lighthouse is also the
Borger News -Herald
most famous lighthouse
in the entire world. Most
people are unaware that
the Statue of Liberty,
which majestically welcomes people into New
York harbor and serves
as a great symbol of hope
and freedom, was actually designated as a lighthouse from 1886 until it
was deactivated in 1902
to declare it a national
monument. When it was a
lighthouse, its torch could
be seen 24 miles away.
Why is it that so many
people find lighthouses so
captivating? Travel industry insiders say that lighthouse tours and cruises
have seen a staggering
increase in popularity in
recent years.
A quick check on
Ebay, the online auction
site, yesterday displayed
nearly 80,000 lighthouserelated items ranging
from statues, plates, pillows, blankets, shirts,
photos, watches and everything else imaginable
featuring a lighthouse.
The lighthouse has
come to symbolize many
things to different people.
For some, its an inspirational item and many
devotional and religious
books often feature a
lighthouse on the cover.
In reality, the lighthouse is an ancient navigational tool which still
serves its original purpose. Many small aircraft
pilots and small boats still
rely on it as a guide to
safety. Additionally, even
traveling vessels possessed of advanced technology still rely upon the
ancient lighthouse when
modern technology fails.
The lighthouse is a
treasure with links to the
past which provide hope
for the future. They add
charm and character to
our nations waterways,
shores and beaches, they
bring a sense of peace to
our hearts and are well
deserving of the protection and care they receive from numerous
lighthouse appreciation
societies throughout our
nation.
Sales tax holiday
weekend in Texas begins Friday
AUSTIN, Texas (AP)
— It’s nearly sales tax
break time in Texas.
The state’s annual sales
tax holiday begins Friday
and runs through Sunday
as children prepare to return to school.
Comptroller
Susan
Combs says shoppers can
save money on certain
items priced under $100.
The Texas law exempts
most clothing, footwear,
school supplies and backpacks priced under $100
from sales tax. That adds
up to about $8 on every
$100 spent on certain purchases this weekend. The
tax break does not extend
to some items, such as
jewelry, purses and luggage.
Combs estimates shoppers will save nearly $83
million in state and local
sales taxes this weekend.
Qualifying purchases can
be done in stores, online
or from catalog sellers
that do business in Texas,
which began sales tax
break weekend in 1999.
Teen charged with murder Police:
in Houston motel slaying
HOUSTON (AP) — A
teenager has been charged
with murder in the slaying
of a 35-year-old man whose
beaten and stabbed body
was found in a Houston
motel bathtub.
Harris County jail records show 17-year-old
Carlos Mercado was being held Thursday without
bond.
Online jail records don’t
list an attorney for Mercado, who was arrested Tuesday driving the wrong way
on a frontage road in the
victim’s car. Investigators
say Mercado had blood on
his clothes, which led authorities to check on other
recently reported crimes.
A motel worker earlier
Tuesday reported discovering the victim’s body when
going into a room for cleaning.
Houston police say Mercado and the victim, whose
name wasn’t immediately
released, checked into a
room together and then apparently argued.
Authorities haven’t released a possible motive in
the death.
2 children hit by stray
bullets in Houston
HOUSTON (AP) —
Houston police say a 9-yearold girl and her 7-year-old
brother have been shot by
stray bullets after a suspected
drug deal.
Police spokesman John
Cannon says they were walking with their mother around
4 p.m. Wednesday near an
HEB supermarket.
Police say the shooting
occurred between two vehicles parked next to each
other nearby. They say a man
from one car opened fire at
the other but instead hit the
children. Both cars fled.
Police say one of the vehicles was carrying bags of
marijuana.
The children were hospitalized. The boy was treated
and released. The girl’s condition is unknown.
Police have taken two men
into custody. Their names
haven’t been released.

Local church opening new school
Word of Life Church Opens Doors to many opportunities to Texas Students
Sharon Castleberry
Borger News-Herald
The Word of Life
Church located in Borger, Texas is offering local students a chance to
attend their new school.
Classes will begin on
Sept. 2 for children in
grades PK through 9
grade. Pastor Pesch and
another supervisor at-
tended a week long training in administration,
policies and procedures.
The teachers will follow the biblically based
Accelerated
Christian
Education curriculum or
ACE curriculum. The
program allows for individualized, self-paced
lessons. Students will
take a diagnostic test to
determine their instruc-
tional level for placement.
The school is planning many fun, as well
as, challenging activities for the students both
in the classroom and on
field trips. Students will
also be able to participate
in regional and national
conventions in many different areas.
Many
applications
have been handed out
to parents who wish for
their children to attend
the school. Pastor Pesch
said that there are openings for fourty students
this year. Parents will
pay a tuition fee that will
be used to pay for student materials and other
costs.
The Word of Life
School is hosting an
Open House on Monday,
August 11, from 1pm to
6pm so prospective students and families can
meet the staff and tour
the school. Volunteers
have been painting and
readying classrooms in
preparation for the new
students.
Pastor Eddie Pesch is
looking forward to the
new role he will be play-
ing as the school’s administrator. He and his
wife, Cathy, have been
in the community for 8
years. Cathy will be joining the Phillips-PlemonsStinnett ISD as a special
education teacher.

Dallas homicide count
on track for 10-year low
DALLAS (AP) — Dallas could be
heading for a 10-year low in homicides
that some experts say is partly due to
new approaches to policing, an improving economy and better trauma care.
The Dallas Morning News reports
(http://bit.ly/1AWy8iE ) that authorities have recorded 69 slayings so far in
2014, compared to 85 at the same point
last year. If the trend continues, the city
would have fewer than 120 homicides
by the year’s end. There were 143 last
year. The 10-year-high was 248 in 2004,
and the decade low was 133 in 2011.
City Manager Ryan Evans said
economic initiatives, like redeveloping
rough areas, as well as policing crime
hot spots, have helped cut crime overall.
He said the city is “night and day” from
where it was a decade ago and in the
high-crime days of the 1980s and early
1990s, when the number of slayings
topped 500.
Denise Paquette Boots, an associate
criminology professor at the University
of Texas at Dallas, said a bad economy
can put a strain on families that can lead
to domestic violence killings. Boots
noted city efforts to increase resources
and new strategies to combat domestic violence. She also credited Dallas’
trauma and emergency care.
Assistant Chief Randy Blankenbaker
said there’s more work to be done.
“It’ll be a milestone, and we’ll talk
about it, and it’s 120 people who lost
their lives and it’s unacceptable,” Blankenbaker said. “We’ll never rest on the
fact that we’ve had fewer murders.”
Still Blankenbaker said it’s difficult
to pinpoint all the reasons for the city’s
homicide drop.
“If we had all these answers, we
could write books and be very rich,” he
said.

The Lady Bulldogs are in their third day of the four day practice schedule, with their
first scrimmage set for Friday. There are 42 Lady Bulldogs at two-a-days who are

Friday.
Rangers win two in a row, first time since June
CHICAGO (AP) —
Adam Rosales homered
twice in a game for the first
time in his career and Nick
Tepesch pitched scoreless
ball into the sixth inning,
leading the Texas Rangers
over Chris Sale and the
Chicago White Sox 3-1
Wednesday.
The Rangers, who began the day with baseball's
worst record, have won
consecutive games for the
first time since June 27-28.
They routed the White Sox
16-0 on Tuesday night.
Rosales hit a two-run
shot in the second and
added a solo shot in the
seventh. He entered the
game with only one homer
this season.
White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton exited in
the second after running
into the right-center field
fence trying to catch Rosales' homer. The team
said Eaton bruised his
lower back.
Tepesch (4-7) gave up
six hits in 5 2-3 innings.
He had lost four straight
decisions, and skipped a
turn because of a sore left
knee.
Sale (10-2) allowed
three hits in six innings,
striking out nine. His
only other loss this season
came on June 12, when he
was outdueled by Detroit's
Max Scherzer.
Chicago's Dayan Viciedo homered in the seventh off Roman Mendez.
Neftali Feliz got two outs
for his fourth save in five
chances.
In four starts and one
relief appearance in July,
Tepesch allowed 18 runs
in 22 2-3 innings before
his knee flared up in the
seventh inning of his last
start, on July 26 against
Oakland.
On Wednesday, Tepesch sailed through five
innings before leaving
with runners on second
and third and two outs in
the sixth. Roman Mendez
replaced him and got major league home run leader
Jose Abreu to ground out.
TRAINER'S ROOM
Rangers: Catcher Geovany Soto (strained right
groin) is expected to be activated from the disabled
list on Friday, and catcher
Chris Gimenez comes off
three-day paternity leave
Thursday. With catcher
Robinson Chirinos already
on the roster and the addition of first baseman Mike
Carp on Monday, Gimenez will likely to be sent
to Triple-A Round Rock.
White Sox: Alejandro
De Aza was back in left
field after sitting out Tuesday night's game with a
bruised left knee. ... Pitching coach Don Cooper
missed the game because
of a recurrence of vertigolike symptoms. He won't
make the trip with the
team to Seattle. Cooper
has missed 13 games with
the condition so far.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) —
Johnny Manziel will start
Cleveland's
exhibition
opener on the sideline.
Browns coach Mike
Pettine chose Brian Hoyer
as the starting quarterback
for Saturday's game in
Detroit, giving the veteran
the first chance to impress
before Manziel takes the
field.
Pettine said the decision to start Hoyer over
Manziel was based on the
veteran's performance so
far in training camp.
"That was his job," Pettine said. "He was the one
coming into it. We did
want to mix the groups up
coming into it, as we did,
but he's done nothing to
have that taken away from
him, so he'll be out there
with the starters."
Manziel has steadily
improved, closing the gap
on Hoyer in recent days
as the rookie becomes
more comfortable with
the Browns' playbook and
offense. The former Heisman Trophy winner took
his first practice snaps
with the first-team offense earlier this week and
he could get some playing time with Cleveland's
starters against the Lions.
Manziel said the Xs and
Os aren't as jumbled in his
mind as they were even a
few days ago.
"You just get out there
with a lot less clutter,"
he said. "We're in to a
couple weeks now, and it
feels a lot more comfortable for me. There's still
a long ways to go for me
obviously, and like I said
a week ago, I felt like if I
kept working on this stuff
and got more and more familiar with a certain play
call, a certain formation,
a certain concept, then in
due time I would get better at certain concepts and
there's still a lot more for
me to go."
The competition between Hoyer and Manziel
appears to have tightened,
and Pettine said both QBs
have made progress during the first two weeks of
camp.
"They've both made
improvement, and I think
they're both doing a great
job of playing to their skill
sets," Pettine said. "It's
obviously very different,
what they bring to the table. I think Brian's starting
to feel very comfortable in
the pocket."
As he works toward
naming a starter for the
Sept. 7 opener at Pittsburgh, Pettine said more
weight will be placed on
how Hoyer and Manziel do
in the first two preseason
games. Pettine would like
to have the QB competition — and all positional
battles — decided before
the third exhibition.
"That's the plan," he
said. "I've always been
a part of, and more than
likely will be here, resting most of the guys in the
fourth game, so that third
game is critical to get that
chemistry and cohesion.
We've mixed the lineups
a lot, which is good because you're getting guys
exposure. They're in with
the twos. They're in with
the ones. They're going
against the ones, going
against the twos. At some
point, you've got to settle
down and develop that
chemistry, that cohesion."
Hoyer got a jolt on
Tuesday when his surgically repaired right knee
got hit during practice.
Hoyer said linebacker
Paul Kruger banged into
his knee but that it held up
fine.
"It was more scary than
anything else," he said. "I
kind of went down and
waited for there to be some
pain and there wasn't, so it
was actually kind of good
to have some confidence
going into Saturday knowing I've actually taken a hit
and the brace withstood
the hit and the brace felt
good.
