Wintry blast hits West, 8 killed; storms head East
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Stormy weather across the West blamed in eight deaths moved steadily eastward, prompting alerts of wintry conditions in New Mexico and Texas. Forecasters said the storm system in the West would sweep across the South and toward the Atlantic coast the coming week, causing problems for holiday travelers. The “Nordic outbreak” will “produce a mixed bag of wily weather that will end up impacting much of the nation,” National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Harris said. With a winter storm warning in effect for parts of New Mexico, snow was falling across much of the state early Sunday and forecasters predicted up to 5 inches for many areas. The state Department of Transportation said motorists on several major roadways, including parts of Interstate 40, faced difficult driving conditions because of packed snow and ice, while some roads in the south were closed. Low temps were predicted to be mainly in the 20s statewide. Station KOB reported strong winds and near whiteout conditions late Saturday night along a stretch of I-40, about 80 miles west of Albuquerque. Parts of the state had already been hit with snow and freezing rain that caused a rollover accident that killed a 4-year-old girl in the eastern part of the state. Three other storm-related deaths were reported Saturday in a crash in the Texas Panhandle involving nearly a dozen vehicles. In California, where the storm system hit first, prompting flooding and water rescues in recent days, three deaths have been linked to the storms since Thursday, as authorities found one body near downed power lines, one man crashed his vehicle into a tree and a woman was killed when a tree fell on a parked car. In Arizona, firefighters recovered the body of a man who was swept away by high waters Friday in the Santa Cruz River in the southern part of the state. The storm already has affected much of the West, causing hundreds of rollover accidents and prompting officials to cancel events and close roads. In Nevada, snow in high elevations temporarily bogged down travel. In Arizona, more than 8,000 cyclists competed Saturday in rainy conditions in the annual El Tour de Tucson. One cyclist died in a collision with a vehicle, but there was no immediate indication that the accident was storm related. Also, high school football games, soccer tournaments and parades were cancelled across the state. Forecasters said parts of both California and Arizona could expect severe weather with winter storm warnings through Saturday. In Texas, freezing rain and cold temperatures have already hampered travel and much of the “heavy stuff” will hit south of I-20, Harris said. Several traffic accidents were reported, including the fatal crash late Friday that left several injured hurt in Vega, about 30 miles west Amarillo, and one that injured three members of singer Willie Nelson’s band when their bus struck a pillar on Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, about 75 miles northeast of Dallas. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for much of the Texas Panhandle until Monday morning, while the Dallas-Fort Worth area was under a winter storm warning until Monday.

Friends of the Library to host ‘After the Parade’ party; book signing
Wanda Guinn Guest Writer
Friends of the Library are hosting an After the Parade Christmas party in the Library Club Room located at 625 Weatherly, the entry located on the north side of the building. Everyone is invited to have refreshments, and enjoy a carol sing-along, hear a performance of The Night before Christmas, and visit with Santa’s helper. The parade and party are scheduled for December 2. A book signing will also be part of the program. Author Jane Agee will be on hand to sign copies of her pictorial history of Borger. This is a very special book of the beginning and development of Borger, from 1926 through 1970. Jane Snyder Agee, a reference librarian and bibliographer, retired from Duke University after 23 years and moved to Borger in 2006. Her collection of tales and images of the history of Borger is a collector’s item of the story of a “worst of the worst” boomtown that grew to be named All-American City in 1970.

Submit your choice for the Hero of Hutchinson County
Hutchinson County and small town society are famous for their close-knit communities and a spirit of generosity and solidarity. Some people exemplify this archetype. We know who they are, because they are the ones who catch us when we are falling, or who inspire us to race faster, reach farther, and build bigger. They are the beams that support us and the fuel that keeps us moving. They are in our churches and they are in our clubs. They are our professors, our teachers, our mentors, our bosses, our neighbors. They are our heroes. Our Heroes affect daily life in Hutchinson county in ways big and small, and in ways some might overlook while we busy ourselves with our routines. They affect our jobs, they affect our kids, they affect their neighborhoods. They volunteer, they reach out, or maybe they are just friendly and dependable. We, the Borger News-Herald, want to recognize them. As part of a new feature, The BNH will begin to highlight those among us who embody the spirit of heroism and make themselves valuable to our community. Each week we will feature a local resident who makes a tangible impact in the county. It could be a high-profile person, like a well-known university figure, a successful business leader, or someone who’s logged thousands of volunteer hours with a local organization, but it doesn’t have to be. Our Hero of Hutchinson County could be someone who finds a small, maybe unnoticed, way to make a large impact. The way we do this will be unique. Our newsroom will choose a resident to feature each week, focusing on how the person has shown themselves to be a true Hero among us, and has positively influenced the county. We will talk to the person’s friends, family, and coworkers, fellow church members – anyone who might help us construct a fitting tribute to our subject. We won’t, however, interview the person being featured. Ideally, the one featured wouldn’t even know about it until the story is published. Our hope is to pleasantly surprise each of those we feature with a story that tells how they make a difference in this county through the eyes of those they most impact. To do this successfully, we need your help. We want to know who you think we should feature in our weekly Heroes of Hutchinson County piece. Please e-mail the names of anyone you would like to nominate, along with a brief description and the ways they make a difference in the community, to with the subject line: Heroes of Hutchinson County. We are your community paper, and we want this to be another way to highlight Hutchinson’s greatest asset – its people.

Breaking News: No End in Sight…
didn’t know you went to UT,” a friend said. “I didn’t—this is simply a good way to declare Chapter XI.”… ***** Lord Byron, a British poet, stoutly supported the importance of truth. He’s remembered for writing, “Without or with offense to friends or foes, I sketch your world exactly as it goes.” Today, some news folks place highest priority on “getting it first.” Most of us settle for news “approximately as it goes.” Yearning, a frequent pastime in retirement, often centers on memories of yesteryear radio —when we listened on purpose. We dared not miss radio programs that would be topics of conversation the next morning on the school bus. Sometimes the volume was purposely kept low, hopeful to avoid parental warnings about “running the battry down.” Yep, for the adults we knew, it was a two-syllabled word…. ***** Before Neilsen Ratings, Arbitrons and other tools measuring media impact, two broadcast news personalities stood out. They spanned some 75 years with daily commentaries that were balanced, accurate, hopeful and carefully prioritized. One was Lowell Thomas— arguably the most versatile media personality in the history of communications. The other who I feel was greatly influenced by Thomas—was the inimitable Paul Harvey. Both were gentle giants, humble by all measures. They had hope in their hearts that spilled out in their words. Rarely did they have “breaking news.” Instead, they began—and ended— newscasts with gentle encouragement. Thomas began newscasts with, “Good evening, everybody,” ending with, “So long, until tomorrow.” With Harvey, it was “Hello, Americans” and “Good day!”… ***** Their humility was obvious and their impact great as their followers quoted them across the US—Thomas largely from the 1930s through the 1970s, Harvey from the 1950s into the 2000s. Both were network regulars, and listeners felt cheated if they happened to miss a broadcast. The humility thing--and their commitment to a healthy work ethic--began early for both men. Thomas washed dishes in a Colorado gold-mining town; Harvey swept the floors of a Tulsa radio station. Both were multi-faceted, worthy of Googling. I revisit their web sites from time to time, if only to re-capture details of Thomas’ on-the-air “bloopers.” When he made ‘em, he led the laughter…. ***** I heard Thomas in the mid1970s at a dinner in Fort Worth. He was the featured speaker. Even at age 85, his personality sparkled, and he was humble beyond belief. I managed to scrunch into his crowded elevator at evening’s end. Someone mentioned how gratified he must have been to be the world’s foremost radio newsman for many years. “I never placed too much stock in that,” Thomas responded. “My newscast came on immediately before “Amos N’ Andy,” and NOBODY was going to be late tuning in for them!”… ***** During part of his career, he was employed by Sunoco; the company purchased network airtime for his broadcast. Later, Thomas himself was a network owner. Harvey was “joined at the hip” with sponsors, too, joking about being happy to “put their money where his mouth is.” Thomas lived to be almost 90, dying in 1981; Harvey was 91 upon his death in 2009. Would that someone pick up their batons and win Americans’ hearts the way they did. Archie Bunker said it well: “Those were the days!”.... ***** Dr. Newbury is a speaker in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Send inquiries/comments to: newbury@speakerdoc. com.Phone: 817-447-3872.

Don Newbury The Idle American Biblical instruction is clear: We are NOT to grow weary in well-doing. Across generations, it’s easier said than done. On life’s landscape today, “bad-doing” holds the upper hand. As to weariness, Americans are bone-tired of “breaking news” barrages. Such openings are common to virtually all electronic newscasts…. ***** “Rocket surgery”—a term coined by a befuddled news guy—isn’t necessary to predict that “breaking news” prepares us for an imposing list of “broken down” topics. Broken are dreams, spirits, hearts, contracts and promises, to name a few. Further, our national debt grimly reminds us that we are “broke” financially. Oh, I left out at least one important topic—broken pocketbooks. They are inevitable results of indebtedness so easily incurred these days at all levels. We’ve learned to say “charge it” far too casually. I am reminded of the man in a bank, his right arm extended, with index and little fingers stiffened upward. “I

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good day to wade through bills, forms and red-tape details about inheritances and insurance matters. You won’t overlook anything because you’re in a serious frame of mind and you’re patient. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Discussions with others will be a bit stiff because people are not forthcoming today. They feel guarded and cautious. Just go with the flow. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You can get a lot done at work today because you have endurance, focus and concentration. You won’t overlook details, and you won’t mind routine tasks. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Discussions with others about the care and education of children will be productive today. This is also a good day for romantic partners to discuss the practical aspects of their relationship. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Make a list of home repairs today, because you’ll find it satisfying to do this. You might not start the list yet, but at least it’s defined. This will give you a warm feeling in your tummy. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Try not to fall into worry mode today, because it’s anti-productive. Instead, use today’s energy to do mental work that requires attention to detail. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)You feel conservative and cautious when it comes to money today. You don’t want to spend money, but if you do, it will be for practical reasons. That’s for sure. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful today because it’s hard to see the forest for the trees. This means you might get hung up on details and forget the big picture. You also might have to say farewell to someone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a great day for research. You have the right mindset to plod through boring data and yet keep track of it all. Bravo. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Listen to the advice of someone older or more experienced because this person can benefit you today. In fact, what you learn might cause you to modify your goals for the future. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) People in authority are impressed with how conscientious and reliable you are. Don’t do anything to change their opinion. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is an excellent day to study or to finish school papers or a thesis. You have excellent powers of concentration, and you want to tackle serious work.

Cornyn Introduces Bill to Combat Sex Trafficking
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (RTX) joined colleagues in the Senate and House of Representatives today in introducing the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act. The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act would boost support for and protection of victims of human trafficking by increasing law enforcement resources, enhancing victims’ services and increasing penalties in an effort to combat child sex trafficking, child pornography, sexual exploitation and human trafficking. “Twenty-five percent of the victims of domestic human trafficking crimes are located in Texas. Everyone here today recognizes the atrocity of human trafficking, and we’ve united across party lines and in bicameral fashion, as you can tell, to take a firm stand against it.” The bill is co-sponsored by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Amy Klobuchar (DMN) and Representatives Ted Poe (R-TX), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), and Rick Nolan (DMN) Kay Granger (R-TX) and Candice Miller (R-MI). Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance and Judiciary Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.

Correctional Officer Indicted for Accepting Bribes
ABILENE, Texas — Matthew Castaneda, 23, of Big Spring, Texas, was arrested yesterday on a federal indictment, returned by a grand jury last week and unsealed today, charging him with one count of bribery of public officials. Castaneda made his initial appearance in federal court today before U.S. Magistrate Judge E. Scott Frost, and entered a not guilty plea to the charge. He was released on his own recognizance. Today’s announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. The indictment alleges that from September 14, 2013, to approximately December 13, 2012, Castaneda, who at the time was employed as a Correctional Officer at the Big Spring Correctional Center, brought contraband to an inmate, in the form of cell phones, in exchange for money from that inmate. An indictment is an accusation by a federal grand jury, and a defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence unless proven guilty. If convicted, however, Castaneda faces a maximum statutory penalty of 15 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine. The investigation was conducted by the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General. Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulina Jacobo is in charge of the prosecution.
