A fre on Birdie Ave. in
Borger destroyed a detached
storage and utility building
Monday night, and an inves-
tiagtion by the Hutchinson
County Fire Marshal’s offce
points to an improperly in-
stalled clothing dryer as the
cause.
Borger Fire Department
Firefghters responded to a
structure fre call at around
8:45 Monday evening and,
supported by the Hutchin-
son County Fire Department,
extinguished a runaway ap-
pliance fre - but not before
it completely consumed the
building it was housed in.
Hutchinson County Fire
Marshal Danny Richards
told the News-Herald that
an investigation revealed the
dryer was not vented prop-
erly, causing a buildup of lint
inside the appliance which
eventually caught fre.
The main house suffered
minor heat damage includ-
ing melted windows, but the
frefghters were able to con-
trol the fre before any major
damage occurred, and no in-
juries were reported.
“The response time was
good,” said Richards, “Ev-
eryone reacted very well to
save the house and the sur-
rounding structures. Every-
body did a good job.”

Fire investigation reveals improper
dryer installation as cause of blaze
Hutchinson County is
very proud to announce
that two of our fnest
young athletes have both
signed a letter of intent
and scholarship with four
year universities.
Chris Tawiah is a 6’ 9”
basketball player origi-
nally from England. He
has worked his way up,
to become one of the top
players for Frank Phillips
College and that has help
to earn him a spot with
the Islanders at Texas A
& M University in Cor-
pus Christi.
Colton Hunter is a
Borger Bulldog original.
He has been a great ath-
lete for the Bulldogs and
Oklahoma Panhandle
State University will not

athletic abilities. Col-
ton may not be traveling

DALLAS – (April 21,
2014) The U.S. Environmen-
tal Protection Agency (EPA)
recently issued a fnal green-
house gas (GHG) Prevention
of Signifcant Deterioration
(PSD) construction permit for
the Enterprise Products Oper-
ating facility in Mont Belvieu,
Texas, near Houston. The
permit allows the company to
build a propane dehydrogena-
tion unit with catalytic reac-
tors, heaters, and gas turbines
that maximize thermal eff-
ciency.
“We continue to work with
Texas’ businesses to take ac-
tion on reducing greenhouse
gas emissions,” said EPA
Regional Administrator Ron
Curry. “We are pleased to see
companies making a positive
difference to reduce environ-
mental impacts on our climate
and create jobs.”
The project will use cata-
lytic reactors to convert pro-
pane into propylene and hy-
drogen. The project is also
expected to produce over 1.6
billion pounds of propylene a
year.
In June 2010, EPA fnal-
ized national GHG regula-
tions, which specify that be-
ginning on January 2, 2011,
projects that increase GHG
emissions substantially will
require an air permit.
EPA believes states are
best equipped to run GHG air
permitting programs. Texas is
working to replace a federal
implementation plan with its
own state program, which will
eliminate the need for busi-
nesses to seek air permits from
EPA. This action will increase
effciency and allow for in-
dustry to continue to grow in
Texas.
EPA has fnalized 35 GHG
permits in Texas, proposed an
additional 9 permits, and cur-
rently has over 30 additional
GHG permit applications un-
der development in Texas.

formation on GHG permits

AUSTIN – The Texas
Department of Public Safety
(DPS) is encouraging resi-
dents to beat the summer
rush at driver license offces
across the state by renewing
their license or identifca-
tion card early or online. The
summer months are typically
one of the busiest times of
year at driver license offces,
and many eligible Texans
can skip the trip to the offce
completely via online re-
newal of their license, iden-
tifcation card or change of
address at Texas.gov.
“With students and fami-
lies out of school or off work,
Texas driver license offces
tend to be especially busy
during the summer months,”
said DPS Director Steven
McCraw. “Many Texans are
eligible to take advantage of
our customer-convenient op-
tions for online and phone
renewal of licenses and
identifcation cards, and are
encouraged to visit high-
capacity driver license mega
centers in metropolitan areas
if needed.”
If a trip to a driver license
offce is necessary, custom-
ers in the major metro areas
should visit mega centers
in their area. Located in the
Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth,
Houston and San Antonio
metropolitan areas, driver
license mega centers offer
high-capacity facilities and
technology designed to im-
prove effciency and custom-
er service. Mega centers fea-
ture an innovative queuing
system that offers customers
the convenient option to re-
serve a spot in line before go-
ing to the offce. Customers
can virtually enter the line
via cell phone, online or us-
ing a land line.
To be eligible to renew
online, the card holder must
be a U.S. citizen and the ex-
piration date on the card must
be within one year. When the
card is renewed, the expira-
tion date on the new card will
be six years after the cur-
rent card’s expiration date,
whether customers renew
early or not.
Additionally, in order to
renew online, the card cannot
have been expired for more
than two years. Requirements
for renewing online are avail-
able at Texas.gov, the offcial
website of the State of Texas.
Customers can also renew by
phone at 1-866-357-3639.
The eligibility requirements
for phone renewal are the
same as for online renewal.
The fee is the same for on-
line, in-person and telephone
renewals.
Licenses must be renewed
in person every 12 years, so
an updated photo can be tak-
en and eyesight can be test-
ed. If residents need to come
into the offce to renew, they
can do so within one year
prior to the expiration date,
which means they can pick
a time that is convenient for
their schedule.
Customers may obtain a
replacement driver license
or identifcation card online
if they are able to provide
the 20 character code on the
front of their current license
or card.
Visit the DPS website
to make sure you have the
proper paperwork (including
documents needed for resi-
dency requirements) before
making the trip to the offce:
http://www.dps.texas.gov/
DriverLicense/ApplyforLi-
cense.htm.
Many offces require on-
line scheduling in order to
obtain an appointment for a
driving test. To see if an of-
fce near you offers online
scheduling, visit www.dps.

opinions of the writer and do not necessarily refect the views or opinions of

The term is everywhere.
If you want to change
something, you have
to ‘change the culture’.
Churches, movie produc-
ers, marriage counselors;
they all use the term. It
is the new ‘ethos’. Basi-
cally the term means to
‘change the environment’,
to ‘change from within’.
The refection in the mir-
ror tells me to change out
of my pajamas, but I am a
writer. We live in our paja-
mas. Smiling, I search for
a cause.
I don’t need to look far.
Cancer has captured my
attention for the second
time. This time I took the
news with more grace and
decided against lamenting.
We live in an age where
75% of all cancer patients
are survivors. Ask my be-
loved mentor, Judy Hart.
Ask her son. Ask Nora at
United Pharmacy. Ask my
best friend, Kathryn. Ask
me. We are all survivors.
And yet the general
public gasps as though our
days are now numbered,
as if we should be prepar-
ing for the worst. So let
me speak for all cancer
patients, in and out of re-
mission: We are not to be
pitied. We are still viable,
contributing human be-
ings, so please, don’t treat
us like babies. We are as
strong, or as weak as the
culture around us.
I have had to limit
people in my life who cant
seem to see past tragedy.
They are the lamenters.
They ask all the wrong
questions. ‘So, have you
made your fnal arrange-
ments?’ ‘What are you
gonna do with your big
screen TV?’ I smile and
think, ‘I’m not dead yet,
thanks.’ They treat you as
if you have one foot in the
grave.
In the chemo room, I
can spot a lamenter a mile
away. She is the one whose
potassium level is down
and tells her son under
no uncertain terms, that
he must come back from
New York immediately, as
she is now dying. He has
been here for two months
and misses his children,
but he comes back any-
way, because, he thinks,
what if she is really dying
this time? Are you kidding
me? My potassium level
is always down. So is my
iron level and oh by the
way, my immune system
is half of what it use to be.
And yet I drove here in an
hour, by myself. The dif-
ference? Culture. We are
not just who we surround
ourselves with. We are
also who we tell ourselves
we are.
For me, cancer is a
gift. It helped me priori-
tize. I was piddling my
life away on meaningless
nothings. This brought me
back to where I needed to
be. Now I don’t know if I
will be here next year or
eight years from now, but
what I do know is that I
am fnally living my life.
Before cancer, I was dy-
ing and there was nothing
physically wrong with me.
Now, I wouldn’t trade my
life with anyone else in
the world. I know where
I’m going and am grateful
for where I have been.
If you want to change
something, it falls on you.
If that man drives you cra-
zy with his drinking and
spending all the money,
you can choose to ask God
to change your attitude
and live with it, or you can
decide you’ve had enough
and leave. You don’t have
to resort to name calling
or blame. You are in this.
This is your personal cul-
ture. On the same notion,
if your lady’s nose is so
high up in the air that it
embarrasses you to take
her anywhere, you can ask
God to help you live with
this contentious woman in
the corner of your attic,
or you can go to marriage
counseling. Again, your
culture, your responsibil-
ity.
The purpose of chang-
ing the culture? Self edi-
fcation. Glory to God.
Being the example we
want for our children. En-
suring that good prevails
over evil. And in the end,
knowing we did our best.
We are not meant just to
survive. We are meant to
thrive.
Count it all joy,
Lee Atkins-Karlin

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
This is an excellent day to make
long-range, practical plans for
your future. Quite likely, you will
do this in private, by yourself,
without fanfare. You are wisely
looking ahead.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Someone older, more
experienced or wiser might help
you today or give you advice,
especially in a group situation. Or
perhaps, you will develop a crush
on someone older, wiser or richer.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Others, especially in a position
of authority, want your creative
input on matters related to
furniture arrangement, layout,
design or how something looks.
Why not advise them?
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Travel for pleasure appeals to
you today. If you can’t travel,
then make serious plans for fun
travel in the future. This also is
a good day to discuss matters
related to publishing and the
media.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Someone older might bequeath
something to you today or give
you a gift or an advantage.
Accept this with a “thank you.”
(Every act of generosity needs a
recipient.)
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
A casual relationship might
grow into something committed
today. Or you might strike up
a romantic friendship with
someone older, wiser or richer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Don’t hesitate to ask others
for your help at work today,
especially those who are older
and more experienced. People
are ready to offer you a raise or
praise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Romance with someone older,
richer or more worldly than you
might begin today. Professional
sports players might make a
commitment to a deal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21)
This is an excellent day to
explore real-estate deals or
fnalize something. Someone
more experienced might advise
you on how to make your home
look more attractive.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan.
19)
Make some long-range plans for
the future today. People are in a
cooperative frame of mind and
will listen to your suggestions.
What more could you expect?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.
18)
If shopping today, you will
buy practical, long-lasting items.
You’re concerned with saving
money for a rainy day and
having enough to meet any future
unforeseen event.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)
This is a good day to discuss
problems in relationships,
because your sense of reality is
strong. You will be objective, and
yet reasonably conservative about
fnancial matters or anything that
affects your material well-being.

Chris Tawiah one of the top basketball players at Frank

Chris Hackett stated, “I couldn’t be happier that Chris has

to play at that level, but he really developed and expanded his
game during the year he spent with us. They did a great job
recruiting him and I think he will have a chance to play for
them immediately.”
The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi men’s basketball team has

DEAR ABBY: I have
been married to a won-
derful man for 30 years.
Our marriage may not
be perfect, but it’s quite
good.
My dilemma is this:
My husband keeps track
of every time we have
sex and has a personal
goal of 100 times a year.
In 2013, he informed me
that we’d had sex only
76 times, and that was
not adequate for him. He
was quite upset about it.
Do you think tracking
your sex life is normal,
and what do you think
about a couple married
for 30-plus years having
sex 76 times in a year? Is
that normal? Also, keep
in mind that he travels
for business and is gone
about 60 days a year. --
PRESSURED
DEAR PRESSURED:
Your husband sounds
like a college student
who is striving to get
100 notches on his belt.
Rather than obsess about
the number of times you
have had sex, the quality
of the experience should
be more important. Fif-
ty GREAT times a year
would be better than 100
so-so times, one would
think. And no, I do not
think your husband’s
preoccupation is “nor-
mal” -- whatever normal
is these days.
DEAR ABBY: After
six years of unsuccessful
fertility work, my hus-
band and I were forced to
give up. Last summer his
sister offered to be a sur-
rogate for us, and we’ll
use a donor egg since I
have none. We have told
only a few people.
We’re having an em-
bryo transfer next week
and thought we’d wait
until after the first tri-
mester to “announce.”
But what is the proper
way to do it when it’s
not actually I who is ex-
pecting? And is there eti-
quette for having a baby
shower in this situation?
We’re excited and
proud of this opportu-
nity, but it takes a lot of
explaining for people to
understand and not be
judgmental. This is the
closest we’ll ever get to
experiencing pregnancy,
and I want to enjoy it
to the fullest. -- MOD-
ERN MOM-TO-BE IN
WASHINGTON
DEAR MOM-TO-BE:
Congratulations on your
pregnancy. Because it
takes explaining, I rec-
ommend you share the
happy news with your
family and close friends
by telling them in person.
That way, you can an-
swer any questions they
may have directly. When
you want “the world” to
know, you may decide to
send a mass email or post
photos on the Internet.
As to having a baby
shower -- because this
is a happy event you
are celebrating and you
will need things for the
baby, I’m sure a friend
will want to host one for
you. Be sure to include
your sister-in-law if she
would like to attend.
DEAR ABBY: My
18-year-old granddaugh-
ter is seeing a 30-year-
old man. What can I say
to let her know he is way
too old for her? I don’t
want her to hate me. --
LOVING GRANDMA
IN FLORIDA
DEAR LOVING
GRANDMA: I don’t
think that telling your
granddaughter the man
is too old for her would
be a good idea because
it would imply that she
is too young, and no
18-year-old wants to
hear that. Tell her in-
stead that you think she
would have a lot more in
common with someone
closer to her age. This is
particularly true if she is
still in high school.
