The Borger News-Herald
Roger Curtiss Morris may no
longer ride with the members of
the Hutchinson County Sheriff’s
Posse, but that doesn’t mean the

In spirit, if nothing else.
The HCSA paid tribute to Morris
this past weekend by holding a
special “empty saddle” tribute to
the former member. Morris passed
away in March at the age of 69.
As part of the tribute, HCSA
member Jim Bridwell led a saddled
horse into the sheriff’s posses arena.
The riderless horse represents a
fallen member.
Morris was a long-time member
of the Hutchinson County Sheriff’s
Posse, and spent countless hours

Friend is 1st convicted in
Boston Marathon probe
BOSTON (AP) — The
conviction of a friend of
Boston Marathon bombing
suspect
Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev for impeding
the investigation into the
bombings has his lawyers
wondering if anyone
else who faces charges
connected to the 2013
attack stands a chance of
acquittal.
Afederal jury on Monday
found Azamat Tazhayakov
guilty of obstruction of
justice and conspiracy
for trying to protect
Tsarnaev by agreeing with
another friend to get rid
of a backpack and disable
fireworks they took from
his dorm room.
Tazhayakov’s lawyers
told the jury that it was
the other friend, Dias
Kadyrbayev, who took
the backpack and later
threw it away. Prosecutors
even acknowledged that
Kadyrbayev was the one
who actually placed the
backpack in the trash. But
the jury still convicted
Tazhayakov
of
both
charges.
One of Tazhayakov’s
lawyers called the verdict
“somewhat surprising,”
while another predicted
it does not bode well for
three other men charged
with obstruction of justice
or lying to investigators in
connection with Tsarnaev
and his brother, Tamerlan
Tsarnaev, who was killed
in a shootout with police.
“If Azamat had a
difficult
time
here,
everybody else is going to
have a worse time because
Azamat had the best facts,”
said attorney Nicholas
Wooldridge.
Matthew Myers, another
of Tazhayakov’s attorneys,
said it was difficult to try
a case “in this culture,” a
reference to the emotional
impact the bombings had
on Boston and surrounding
communities. Three people
were killed and more than
260 were injured when
twin bombs exploded near
the finish line in April
2013. At least 16 people
lost limbs in the blasts.
“We understand what
this town has been through
... it’s hard to overcome
that bias,” Myers said.
Tazhayakov faces a
maximum 20-year prison
sentence for obstruction
and a five-year maximum
for conspiracy at his
sentencing, which was
scheduled for Oct. 16.
Tsarnaev has asked that
his trial be moved out of
state, to Washington, D.C.,
because of the intense
media
coverage
and
widespread impact of the
bombings.

Train goes to Kharkiv with
plane crash victims’ remains
KHARKIV, Ukraine
(AP) — A train carrying
the remains of people
killed in the Malaysia
Airlines crash arrived
in the eastern Ukrainian
city of Kharkiv on
Wednesday on their way
to the Netherlands, a
journey which has been
agonizingly slow for
relatives of the victims.
An AP reporter saw the
train Tuesday as it pulled
into a station in Kharkiv,
a government-controlled
city where Ukrainian
authorities have set up
their crash investigation
center.
For many, it is the
next stop on their journey
home to the Netherlands.
Of the 298 who died, 193
were Dutch citizens.

Kharchenko, spokesman
for the state committee on
Egypt calls for Israeli,
Palestinian peace talks
CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s
foreign minister raised
the possibility Tuesday
of restarting stalled peace
talks between Israelis and
Palestinians as part of
negotiating a cease-fire in
the war that has broken out
on the Gaza Strip.
At the start of a meeting
with U.S. Secretary of
State John Kerry, Foreign
Minister Sameh Shukri
said he planned to work
with U.S. and other world
leaders “to not only
resolve this issue but also
to set in motion once again
the peace process that
Secretary Kerry has been
so actively involved in so as
to end this ongoing conflict
between the Palestinians

• Deputies responded
to a call of suspicious
activity on Yuma drive in
the crash, said “we will
do our best” to send the
bodies to the Netherlands
on Tuesday. Ukraine has
agreed to send remains of
all the victims there for
identification and forensic
investigation.
The train stopped
overnight in the contested
city of Donetsk but
left around 3 a.m., the
Ukrainian
emergency
services ministry said.
In Brussels, European
Union foreign ministers
were meeting to decide
how to react to the
disaster.
Lithuanian
Foreign
Minister Linas Linkevicius
blamed
“terrorists
supplied by Moscow” for
the airliner’s destruction
and the deaths of everyone
aboard, and said he hoped
the EU will impose beefedup sanctions on President
Fritch
• Deputies responded
to a call of cattle in the
roadway on FM 281 in
Pringle
• Deputies assisted
another agency with an
investigation on HWY
152 near Borger
July 20
• Deputies took a
report of possible child
abuse at the Sheriff’s
Office in Borger
• Deputies responded
to a suspicious vehicle
on FM 1551 near Borger
and the Israelis.”
Kerry
said
his
discussions with Shukri
sought to “hopefully
find not only a way to a
cease-fire, but a way to
deal with the underlying
issues, which are very
complicated.” But he
stopped short of agreeing
to reopen the peace talks
that abruptly broke off
last April after nearly nine
months of his personal
attention.
Kerry is in Cairo trying
to help broker a truce after
two weeks of fighting that
have killed more than
570 Palestinians and two
dozen Israelis. Before
Kerry began his meetings
with top Egyptian and
Arab League officials
Tuesday, Israeli aircraft hit
more than 70 targets in the
Gaza Strip, including the
home of the late leader of
Hamas’ military wing, five
mosques and a football
stadium, according to a
Gaza police official.

Linkevicius called for
an arms embargo — a
direct challenge to France,
which is building two
warships for the Russian
navy.
So far, EU sanctions
against Russia and its
supporters in Ukraine
have been relatively mild,
though the EU was moving
already to broaden them
before the downing of the
Malaysia Airlines flight
over eastern Ukraine
last Thursday. A summit
meeting of the leaders of
EU’s 28 member states
the previous day had
instructed the ministers
to draft language that
could allow punitive
measures against Russian
businesses and oligarchs,
hitting closer to Putin’s
inner circle than before.

Set up and cooking will

Let dem Games done git started!
MONDAY,
JULY 21, 2014
Every once in a while
there comes a long a special
event that catches my eye.
I mean, who can resist
having a good time for a
good cause.
Certainly not me.
You are, you may already
know, talking to a guy who
volunteered (twice) to jump
in the Bering Sea in March
... after they took a chainsaw
and cut a hole in the ice.
I’m telling you right now,
even polar bears wouldn’t
do that more than once.
You are also talking
about the guy who dressed
up in drag as part of a fundraiser for veterans in Big
Spring. Note to everyone: I
am an ugly girl.
And, you are talking to
a guy who once ... well, I
better not tell you that ...
but, trust me, I wouldn’t do
that again.
You may be wondering
what all of this is leading up
to. Well, here is the whole
she-bang - the Redneck
Olympics are coming.
And, considering I just got
a groovy sunburn, I am the
ultimate redneck.
When Tara Jean (our
local reporter of all the
news that is news ... and
some that isn’t) told me the
good ol’ folks in Fritch were
going to stage the 2014
Redneck Olympics my ears
immediately perked right
on up and my whole speech
pattern changed. Redneck
(I come from Podunk,
Texas) and Olympics (I’m
a former wannabe athlete)
go together for me like ham
hocks, turnip greens and
pinto beans.
Oooo-wee! I’m bout to
get my game on, honeychild.
I must be honest, some
of the events scheduled to
be held are kind of out of
my league. By that I mean,
the Hairy Man Contest ... I
have way too much Indian
in me for that. And, to
be honest, any event that
requires running too fast
or far is pretty much out. I
ran once and Donald Duck
threatened to sue me for
stealing his walk.
But after hearing that the
Games would be going on,
I did the first thing every
Redneck does ... I called my
posse. That’s riiiigghhht.
I called my friend in
Kentucky and had her call
my two sons and “she done
tole them chillens ta come
on over and help they Pa
get him one of dem dair
Your neighbor ...
Name: Whitney Rios
Born: Feb. 23. 1988
How long have you
lived in the Borger area?
Not very long.
What do you like most
about living here? The
people are pretty friendly.
How would your
friends describe you?
Funny and blonde.
Who is your hero? My
grandparents. I’ve always
worshipped them.
What’s your favorite
comfort food? Anything.
I love food.
What’s the best way
to relieve stress? I like
to cuddle up with my husband and children and
watch TV.
What fictional character would you most
like to be? My dad would
probably say Dopey from
the Seven Dwarves.
Who was your favorite band/artist when you
were a teen? You name
them and I probably liked
them.
What modern convenience do you wish
existed when you were
younger? Most definitely
my cell phone.
If you could buy one

Now you may thank,
we’re just a funnin’ ya, but
wez perty dern committed.
Bubba (we always
knowed he’d be one of
them ‘Lympians when he
waz hatched so we give
him that name) and Bob (he
can’t spell long werds so we
gave him that one) are all
excited. We’ve even picked
out a couple of events that
we figger we are perty good
at ... mainly anything that
don’t make us run, jump or
do anything that’d get the
wimmen folk all excited.
Redneck Slip and Slide:
I’m thanking Bubba is a
natural at this. I once saw
him slip on the ice back
home and he durn near slid
all the way to across that
little place over dair called
Loose Bananer.
Frozen Wet T-Shirt
Contest: Ain’t no water
colder than the Bering
Sea. Of course, if’n this is
a wimmin only contest, I
reckon I might hafta bow
out cause well, I ain’t a
wimmin.
Beer Belly Wet T-Shirt
Contest: Looky heere ...
most men work on having
a six-pack. Heck, I done
gone past that. I got a whole
fridge in the works.
Mr. and Mrs. Redneck:
She-Who-Must-Not-BeMade-Mad and I don’t
even have any serious
competition. We both come
Whitney Rios
absolutely
frivolous
thing, what would it be?
A second car. We could re-
from towns that just got
dem new-fangled redio
waves last week.
Toilet Seat Horseshoes:
We’ve
already
been
workin out fer this. When
SWMNBMM
ain’t
moseying about, we take
tha seat of’n the outhouse
and fling ‘er about for a
while. Ain’t nobodt gits in
any trouble if’n we make
sure and put it back on afore
SWMNBMM gits home.
She gits madder than an old
wet hen if’n we don’t and
she falls in.
We only fergot once ...
or twice.
But I must say ol’
Bubba, with his long arms,
is a perty good shot. And I
thank Bob might do perty
well, if’n he don’t have to
spell nothin’.
I knowed you’d be all
excited bout coming on
out and watchin’ us fling
that toilet seat (we calls it
a Booty-rang) around the
home place.
Just don’t be spillin’
you dranks on my trophy
afterwards. We planning
to pass it own to young
uns when they get to be
partying age.
See ya at the Games,
y’all.

What’s your favorite
movie or TV show? I like
the Twilight shows.

Having my dad go to the

ZITS
HI AND LOIS
FAMILY CIRCUS
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Because you are forthright and
direct in all your communications
with others today, this is a strong
day for those of you who sell,
market, write, teach, act or
communicate for a living. Go to
it!
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20)
If shopping today, you simply
will buy what you want. Your
heart, not your head, will dictate
your choices. (Hint: It’s best to
shop in the morning or afternoon,
not the evening.)
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Today the Moon is in your
sign, and it is energized by fiery
Mars. (Zowie!) However, this
makes you an excellent leader,
because you quickly understand
what is needed and you see how
to make it happen.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Secret family discussions
that take place behind the scenes
might be necessary today. Perhaps
it’s time to broker a peace?
DENNIS THE MENACE
ASTROGRAPH
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Lively discussions, especially
with a female, will be memorable
today. You might set the pace for
others or, vice versa, you might
follow someone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
There might be talk about
your personal life today for some
reason. And these details are made
public! (Yikes.) Do you need to do
some damage control?
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Seek out interesting people
today, because you don’t want
to be bored. You want adventure
and a chance to learn something
new. A fascinating female might
entertain you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov.
21)
You might feel possessive
about something today. All your
discussions with others will be a
bit intense and perhaps secretive.
Hmmm.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21)
Because the Moon is opposite
your sign today, you will have
to compromise with others. Be
prepared to go more than halfway.
Also, be aware that others are
feisty.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan.
19)
Do something to get better
organized today, because this will
make you feel good. It also will
make you look good in the eyes
of others. (A clean desk means
messy drawers.)
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.
18)
Grab every opportunity to
enjoy this playful, fun-loving
day. Enjoy sports events, movies,
the theater, social occasions and
playful times with children.
PISCES(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Family discussions will be
lively today. However, if you get
a chance to go off by yourself,
you will enjoy your privacy,
because this is a good day to
cocoon at home and think about
old memories.

Rylan Smith of Borger accepts his 1st place medal at a recent event for the Black
Dragon Martial Arts Team. The event was held in Norman, Oklahoma.
Smith takes 1st in both Gi and no Gi
By EVAN HAYS
Borger News Herald
Rylan Smith had a great
showing at the recent North
American Grappling Association tournament in Norman.
Smith took 1st place in both
the Gi and no Gi division. Rylan
is a member of the Black Drag-
on Martial Arts Team, and has
been one of many stand-outs
this season for the squad.
In the picture above, Rylan
accepts his 1st place medal for
winning the Gi division at the
Lloyd Noble Center in Norman.
The Black Dragon Team
took home many awards from
the tournament winning eight
divisions titles, fourteen second
place finishes, and five third
place finishes.
The team had fourteen competitors at the event.
With half a season still to go

Denver Broncos primed to
make another run in 2014
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
(AP) — Sacred cows were
scarce when Broncos general manager John Elway
dug out from the wreckage
of that Super Bowl blistering by the Seahawks.
Cornerback
Champ
Bailey, a perennial Pro
Bowler and potential Hall
of Famer, was sent packing.
So were Dominique
Rodgers-Cromartie, Mike
Adams and Shaun Phillips, three other defensive
starters who helped keep
the Broncos afloat during an injury epidemic
that sidelined Von Miller,
Rahim Moore, Kevin
Vickerson, Derek Wolfe
and Chris Harris Jr. at
the Super Bowl. Denver's
record-breaking offense
wasn't spared, either.
After throwing for more
yards and touchdowns
than anyone in NFL history, Peyton Manning had
to say goodbye to wide
receiver Eric Decker and
running back Knowshon
Moreno, who combined
for 3,154 yards from
scrimmage and 25 touchdowns in the lead-up to
the Super Bowl.
Replacing Decker are
coveted free agent Emmanuel Sanders and prized
rookie Cody Latimer, both
of whom have spent plenty of one-on-one time with
Manning this offseason.
Those
post-practice
sessions not only helped
get the new guys up to
speed in Adam Gase's
breakneck offense, but
they kept Manning sharp
entering his 17th NFL season with nary a thought of
retirement.
"Sometimes it's the
monotonous routine, the
boredom, that pushes guys
out, not the physical part
of it," Manning said. "And
I have been stimulated the
DALLAS (AP) — The
Dallas Mavericks have
signed free agent forward Richard Jefferson
as a possible replacement
for Vince Carter off the
bench.
Terms of the contract announced Monday
weren't released, but it
is reportedly a one-year
deal for the veteran minimum of $1.4 million.
Jefferson started 78
games for Utah last year
but figures to be used as
a 3-point threat coming
off the bench. That was
the role last season for
Carter, who signed with
Memphis as a free agent.
The 34-year-old Jefferson has averaged 14.5
points and 4.5 rebounds
in a 13-year career that
started in New Jersey,
where he went to the
NBA Finals twice with
Jason Kidd and Carter.
He played in the 2001
NCAA title game with
Arizona.
Mavs sign veteran Jefferson
past two years working
with Adam and working
with different teammates,
so it does sort of keep the
bounce in you, I think."
Atop Elway's to-do list
when he touched down
back in Denver following
that 43-8 loss to Seattle
was an edgier defense.
Yes, like the one that had
just throttled the highestscoring team in NFL history.
Elway also sought a
beefier offensive line to
give Manning better protection and the Broncos'
ground game more muscle.
He accomplished both
goals in a stellar offseason
that puts Denver in position to make another Super Bowl run.
Here are some things to
keep in mind as the Broncos kick off training camp
this week in hopes of getting back to the big game
and hauling home the
Lombardi Trophy, not just
a bunch of records and regrets:

Talib and safety T.J. Ward

mother lode that gave him
thumpers at all three levels on defense.
That theme continued in
the draft when Ohio State's
bruising cornerback, Bradley Roby, ranked 14th on
the Broncos' board, slid to
them at No. 31.
STARS
RETURN:
Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was
all smiles this offseason
as one by one his injured
starters returned to practice. Miller and Harris Jr.
are coming off ACL surgeries. Wolfe is back from
a mysterious ailment that
led to seizures and weight
loss. Moore is back at full
speed after nearly losing
his lower left leg to a rare
medical condition.

Romo ready to
lead Cowboys
into ‘14 season
IRVING, Texas (AP)
— Tony Romo probably
won't have to sneak into
competitive
situations
when the Dallas Cowboys
hold their first training
camp practice Thursday.
The 34-year-old quarterback tried to get some
unauthorized reps in a jersey swap with Caleb Hanie
during minicamp in June,
about six months after a
herniated disk knocked
him out of the season finale and resulted in back
surgery.
Cowboys owner Jerry
Jones says he expects
Romo to be "full go" for
the first workout in Oxnard, California. Romo's
been waiting for that signal for weeks.
"He is chomping at the
bit to do more," said coach
Jason Garrett, who sniffed
out Romo's trick last
month and kicked him out
of the huddle. "We need to
have discipline with him.
Giving him another month
before we get into a competitive practice situation
is certainly going to benefit him."
When he's ready, Romo
faces quite a task trying
to end a four-year playoff
drought. He's on his third
play caller in as many seasons, Garrett's future is in
doubt entering the final
year of his contract, and
the defense is missing its
two best players after its
worst season in franchise
history.
Scott Linehan is the
passing game coordinator
and play caller after getting swept out as Detroit's
offensive
coordinator
when coach Jim Schwartz
was fired. Bill Callahan
had those duties last year
after Garrett gave up the
dual role.
Romo still has his primary weapons in running
back DeMarco Murray,
receiver Dez Bryant and
tight end Jason Witten.
But the defense is missing
linebacker Sean Lee, out
for the season after tearing
a left knee ligament in the
first offseason workout,
and DeMarcus Ware, the
franchise's career sacks
leader who was released
in March.
"Well, I don't think
you're into evaluating
your football team for how
good they are," Romo said.
"I think you're just about
getting better right now.
In some cases, we have
new stuff on both sides
of the ball and we need
to get people up to speed
and need to fly around and
know the system like the
back of your hand so you
can play at your fastest
tempo and speed."
Some things to consider
as the Cowboys head into
training camp:
REPLACING
LEE:
This is the top priority. Justin Durant, signed as a free
agent last year, is the top
in-house candidate. Others are second-year player
DeVonte Holloman and
rookie fourth-round pick
Anthony Hitchens. "It's a
collective thing," Holloman said. "One guy's not
going to replace him."
DEZ THE LEADER:
Bryant is the most experienced and by far the most
accomplished
receiver
after the release of Miles
Austin. He's also entering
the final year of his rookie
deal and could have a big
payday coming. That was
hard to imagine four years
ago when one of several
off-field problems for
Bryant was a lawsuit over
unpaid jewelry bills. "I
wasn't understanding the
whole process of how to
be a professional player,"
Bryant said. "As time went
on, I started learning little
by little and it all came together, and it still is."
D-LINE OVERHAUL:
The boldest move on draft
day for Dallas was moving up 13 spots to get
defensive end DeMarcus
Lawrence early in the second round. The Cowboys
acknowledged they might
have overpaid, and did so
because they thought Lawrence was the best chance
to replace Ware after
dumping him in a salary
cap move. With Ware and
2013 sacks leader Jason
Hatcher gone, it's safe to
say the Cowboys will rely
on plenty of new names.
JOINT PRACTICES:
Dallas and Oakland will
practice together Aug. 12
and 13 in Oxnard. That's
after the Cowboys' preseason opener in San Diego and a couple of days
before they break camp.
"We used to have some
unbelievable
practices
with the Raiders way
back when," said Garrett,
a backup quarterback for
Dallas in the 1990s. "And
I have always just felt it's
a good way to really spice
up training camp."
YOUNG BLOCKERS:
By drafting Notre Dame's
Zack Martin at No. 16 in
the first round, the Cowboys now have four starting offensive linemen who
are 25 or younger. Center
Travis Frederick and left
tackle Tyron Smith figure to be in their spots
for years. Ron Leary is
the left guard. Martin is
plugged in at right guard
for the moment but could
get moved next year.
Antonio.
The Spurs announced
on Monday that they have
re-signed Matt Bonner.
Terms were not disclosed,
but the veteran will return
for a ninth season in San
Antonio. That's the longest tenure outside of the
trio of Tim Duncan, Manu
Ginobili and Tony Parker.
eraging 3.2 points in 11.3
minutes in 61 games. But
he shot 42.9 percent from
3-point range and is a beloved member of the team

in franchise history in
3-pointers made.
