The News-Herald asked
citizens to voice their opin-
ions on the expansion project
planned for Agrium’s nitro-
gen plant in Borger. Follow-
ing are some of the responses
we received; from both those
concerned and those excited
about the opportunities. The
News-Herald will be contact-
ing Agrium with questions
raised by the community.
Reiven West - I’m wonder-
ing what this is going to smell
like (will we be able to smell
it like the fertilizer plant?) also
they will be adding “ The ex-
pansion project will add a new
urea production unit of ap-
proximately 610,000 tonnes”
that’s a lot of uric acid, which
will be converted into ammo-
nia (NH3 gas) which is highly
toxic. I’m concerned about
the ramifcations of a leak or
spill. I think the opportunities
for jobs are great, but what is
going to happen to property
values? Will home insurance
go up because of the proxim-
ity of the plant?
Vance Brown - I [would]
like to have a job there.
Rhonda Green - I have
heard rumors about the vast
amount of fresh well water
that this facility is authorized
to use. We are in a drought.
Could you please check out
the details and report factual
information about the water
usage?
Charlie King - I think
it will be good for the area’s
economy; not having to just
depend on Conoco Phillips.
Charles Murley - This
will bring more opportunities
to the area and will grow our
community; so, if anything,
there is nothing but good that
will come from this expan-
sion. Everyone thinks since
the West, Texas accident that
the town of Borger is in dan-
ger; but we do not store or
make the substances that were
the cause of the explosion in
West, Texas.
Also, seeing how Agrium
uses refned water from the
City of Borger for all plant
usage, there won’t be a prob-
lem with the water supply. We
don’t use any well water for
the facility purposes** And,
as for Borger’s safety, every-
one should be more afraid of
Phillips due to the 7x more
hazardous chemicals that are
out there.
**See story above - Mayor
Jeff Brain told the News-
Herald that the City would be
drilling wells in order to sup-
ply Agrium with water.
What does Borger think of Agrium’s expansion?
Moving forward while remembering the past...Serving Hutchinson County since 1926

Agrium Inc. an-
nounced Tuesday that its
board of directors had
given fnal approval for
a projected expansion to
the company’s nitrogen
facility in Borger.
Agrium said in a press
release that the planned
expansions will add over
670,000 tons of new urea
production annually. Over
110,000 tons of that is ex-
pected to be Diesel Emis-
sion Fuel (DEF) grade
urea, used in fuels that re-
duce nitrogen oxide emis-
sions in diesel vehicles.
Construction on the
project will be in full
swing next month, but the
facility is not expected to
slow production during
the work. Total costs for
the project are estimated
at $720-million dollars,
according to the release.
“Agrium is one of the
largest and lowest-cost
producers of nitrogen
in the world. The up-
grade and expansion at
the Borger facility will
continue to grow our ni-
trogen footprint in this
important agricultural
region while providing
a strong return on in-
vestment. The project
will ensure the facility’s
future longevity, while
using the latest in envi-
ronmental control tech-
nology,” said Agrium’s
President & CEO, Chuck
Magro.
Borger Mayor Jeff
Brain pointed out that
the “facility’s future
longevity” is exactly
what was at stake dur-
ing deliberations about
the project, saying that
the “long-term stability”
of Agrium’s presence in
Borger is one of the most
signifcant impacts of the
decision.
When asked if Borger
was in danger of los-
ing Agrium, Brain said
“Yes.”
“Essentially,” he con-
tinued, “if they didn’t do
this expansion then the
plant would soon go into
obsolescence and then
they would eventually
probably close it because
there are other plants that
are more modern and
more proftable.”
As for futher impacts,
Brain stated “we will be
facing a huge infrastruc-
ture change in that the
City is going to be pro-
viding them with water.
... We are going to be
building a major pipe-
line and drilling wells to
bring water to the plant.”
Providing water for
Agrium will serve as an-
other source of revenue
for the City of Borger,
and Brain points out that
the new pipeline will
“help give us a more di-
verse supply of water.”
In addition to the in-
creased City revenue,
Brain says he suspects
an increase in school dis-
trict budgets and that the
County will beneft.
“We are very grate-
ful that they fnally made
the decision. Obviously
there has been a lot of
work put in getting ready
for this. Having the full
go-ahead makes things a
lot easier.”

Moft Indicted
Borger youth to face trial for
father’s New Year’s Day murder
As of Wednesday, Feb-
ruary 26, Brendan Kai
Mofftt, 23, of Borger has
been formally indicted
by a Hutchinson County
Grand Jury for the New
Year’s Day murder of his
father, Herschel Bryan
Mofftt, according to a
press release from the of-
fce of 84th Judicial Dis-
trict Attorney Mark W.
Snider.
Kai Mofftt was arrest-
ed on January 1, 2014 af-
ter police, responding to a
call for possible gun shots
fred, found his father,
Herschel Bryan Mofftt,
47, dead from multiple
gunshot wounds.
Kai Mofftt was still at
the scene when offcers
arrived, and surrendered
to police. He was detained
and later taken to the
Borger Police Department
for booking.
While investigating, of-
fcers learned that the inci-
dent had stemmed from a
domestic dispute between
the father and son, Borger
Police Lt. Jeremy Hundley
said in a release after Kai
Mofftt’s arrest.
Excerpts from the so-
cial media site Facebook
showed that the two men
had recently exchanged
harsh words, accusations,
insults, and threats as little
as a day before the shoot-
ing.
Mofftt is being repre-
sented by Borger attorney
Amanda Harris and Mark
Snider will prosecute the
case for the state. If con-
victed, Mofftt could serve
5-99 years in the Texas
Department of Criminal
Justice Institutional Divi-
sion, said the release.
Mofftt has posted bail,
which was set at $100,000
in early January, accord-
ing to Snider’s offce.

Recipe of the Day
Think outside the chocolate box when
hosting a cookie exchange. Cookie exchanges
provide a great way to expose your friends to
a wider variety of cookie recipes this holiday
season. But before sending out invitations
and asking your friends to make their favorite
cookie recipe, consider thinking outside the
chocolate box for your party this year.
There are tons of ways to make your
cookie exchange party unique. Start planning
your party right away using a couple of these
ideas.
* Make it a themed cookie exchange.
Theme parties are fun at any time of year, but
take it one step further with your cookie ex-
change. Invite your guests to follow the theme
with the recipes they choose to make. For
example, consider hosting a black and white
cookie party, explaining to attendees that the
cookies must have a black or white element.
Coconut, white or dark chocolate candies,
nuts and sugar for icing are just several ingre-
dients that ft the bill, and you can fnd dozens
of recipes featuring these items. Or make it a
chocolate party, where all of the recipes have
a chocolate ingredient in them. Many cookie
recipes include nuts, so a nut theme would
also be a great idea. In addition to the recipes
featuring the theme, also decorate the party
room to match. In need of a recipe? The fol-
lowing white chocolate crunch recipe is great
for all three themed parties:
Hawaiian Host Whole Macadamia
White Chocolate Crunch
Ingredients:
- 1 box, 7 ounces, 18 pieces Hawaiian
Host Whole Macadamia White Chocolates
- 1 cup Rice Krispies
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Directions:
Melt chocolate in a microwave oven in 4
quart casserole at 70 percent power for 3 - 4
minutes, stirring periodically, until melted.
Stir in peanut butter. Add corn cereal and
marshmallows; stir. Pour into buttered 8-by-
8 inch square pan or dish. When frm, cut into
squares.
* Up the game on the party favors. The
purpose of a cookie exchange is to leave the
party with a variety of cookies, but you and
your guests can have a lot more fun. Ways to
think outside the chocolate box include hold-
ing a wine pairing with the cookies. Red wine
and chocolate go well together, and your
guests can determine which pairing works
best for their tables. Or indulge by serving
some chocolate martinis alongside the cook-
ies. If your group is into games, make up
fun names for the cookie recipes everyone
brought, or make a unique recipe just for the
party, and have guests guess the ingredients
in the mystery cookie.
* Introduce unexpected ingredients into
the cookie recipes. One of the most popu-
lar confections is Hawaiian Host chocolate-
covered macadamia nuts that tempt frequent
snacking all season long. But chopping up
these chocolate-covered nuts and putting
them into a cookie recipe will introduce a
new surprise to all your guests. Try them in
the following butter cookie recipe:
Hawaiian Host Milk Chocolate Alo-
haMac Butter Cookies
Ingredients:
- 14 pieces Hawaiian Host Milk Choco-
late AlohaMacs, chop into pieces
- 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, granulated
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup four
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix butter and
sugars in large bowl until light and fuffy.
Add egg and beat, then add vanilla extract.
Mix four, salt and soda, and add gradually
to butter mixture. Fold in chocolate pieces.
Drop rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie
sheets. Bake 8 - 10 minutes in the preheated
oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool
on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then place on
a wire rack to cool completely.
Cookie exchanges a great
opportunity for discovering new tastes

Opinion
For the longest time,
“round-up time in Texas”
meant “headin’ up and movin’
out” cattle. Cowboys atop
horses undertook the massive
undertaking.
They paid special heed to
the “young ‘uns”--“little do-
gies,” if the song lyrics are
to be trusted. (NOT doggies,
“dogies,” long “o.”)
Whoops, hollers and thun-
dering hooves were sounds of
excitement, all of this happen-
ing “when the bloom was on
the sage,” harmonized by the
Sons of the Pioneers.…
*****
In Sweetwater, Texas,
however, when “round-up”
is mentioned, locals think of
their community’s world-re-
nowned extravaganza, begun
56 years ago by the Sweetwa-
ter Jaycees.
They dreamed of a com-
munity-wide event to control
the ever-growing numbers of
Western Diamondback Rat-
tlesnakes that were plaguing
farmers and ranchers. That
was in 1959.
None of them could have
envisioned the enormity of an
annual event that has become
the world’s largest rattlesnake
round-up. Visitors from around
the world attend, sometimes
upwards of 30,000. Little did
the organizers realize that they
had birthed an idea that had
teeth—uh, fangs—in it….
*****
They’ll be at it again
March 7-9, doing “all things
rattlesnake,” and much, much
more, including the 54th an-
nual run of the Sweetwater
Rife and Pistol Club’s Gun,
Knife and Coin Show.
Motel and restaurant op-
erators will be in “chop-lick-
ing” mode. I’ve been to many
county fairs and a passel of
hog-callings, but nothing has
come close to the big “do’ins”
in Sweetwater. For the three
big days, the city’s popula-
tion doubles—and sometimes
triples.
Everyone pitches in, and
folks at the Chamber of Com-
merce get ready for phone
calls from the curious. Some
callers from Eastern climes—
folks who don’t know a
“round-up” from a “square-
down”--really can’t wrap their
minds around all the goings-
on at the round-up. Consider
these random queries: “Do I
need to get vaccinated before
I come? When they milk the
rattlesnakes, do they use little
buckets? Do I need to wear
protective clothing? Do they
parade the snakes around
on little leashes?” The CofC
staffers sometimes giggle be-
tween calls….
*****
It’s a proft-making deal,
and all proceeds are shared
with 20 clubs, agencies and
other Nolan County causes.
There’ll be all kinds of
activities related to rattle-
snakes—handling, milking
and educating, with empha-
sis, of course, on safety, par-
ticularly on the guided snake
hunt. All tolled, they’ve
“rounded-up” almost a third
of a million pounds of snakes,
including one round-up of
snakes weighing a total of
about 18,000 pounds in 1982.
The “fun for all ages”
docket features wide-ranging
events and activities to pique
many interests, including
food, rides and crafts. On the
grub menu will be such exotic
items as rattlesnake with ham
gravy, as well as rattlesnake
chili….
*****
Miss Snake Charmer will
reign. A midway will light up
the sky.
Each year, something new
is added. A 5K race was held a
while back, but it didn’t really
catch on.
A newspaper “goof” may
have led to the race’s de-
mise….
*****
Abilene Reporter-News,
the closest regional newspa-
per, always carries accounts
of the round-up.
A writer, intent on amus-
ing his buddies at the news-
paper, added a sentence to the
news release announcing the
5K race. “The route will be
strewn with live, ‘unmilked’
rattlesnakes to make the race
more interesting,” he wrote,
intending to remove the sen-
tence before publication.
However, he forgot….
*****
A city guy bragged about
participating in the round-up
annually for many years. A
friend asked how many rat-
tlesnakes he’s rounded up so
far. “None,” the participant
answered cheerfully, “when
you’re looking for rattle-
snakes, none is plenty!”
No matter. At this happen-
ing, one can be “up close” or
“far from” the reptiles at the
coliseum. The whole deal is
a much-magnifed coming to-
gether of people who discover
each year how much fun it is
to be with others. Memories
are made for the rest of the
year—and beyond—of this
West Texas community where,
for 72 hours, there’s a “whole
lot of hissing going on.”
For more rattlesnake
round-up information, contact
the Sweetwater Chamber of
Commerce. No matter your
question, they’ll try not to
laugh. And if you can’t fnd
a motel room, camp out. You
might be able to fnd a shade
beneath one of those giant
wind generators not far from
town….

The Altrusa Flea Market/Craft Show will begin at 9:00
a.m. Saturday morning, with closing time 6:00 p.m. Sun-
day hours are from 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. Approximately 80
spaces are available at the dome on Bulldog Avenue, and they
will all be flled. Many vendors buy more than one space.
The shopper will fnd gifts for all ages, a variety of jewelry,
antiques, collectables, crochet, afghans, scarves and many
other items too varied and numerous to name.
Altrusa Club members will be preparing food for the
Concession. They will have beans and cornbread, barbecue
sandwiches, hot dogs, and plenty of snacks. Pies, brownies,
cookies and other desserts will satisfy the sweet tooth.
Funds from this show go to help various organizations
in Hutchinson County. Each semester Altrusa sponsors a stu-
dent at Frank Phillips with a tuition scholarship. At Christ-
mas time, school counselors help select needy teenagers and
Altrusans take them shopping, usually for, but not limited to,
clothing.
Altrusa’s projects vary from funding organizations, to
bringing cheer to senior citizens, to personal hygiene prod-
ucts for students, and care packages to meals-on-wheels
recipients during their birthday month, just to brighten their
day. Altrusa has been caring for needs of less fortunate in
Hutchinson County since 1957, and still going strong. The
three fea markets they sponsor each year provide the funds
for their projects. When you patronize the fea market, you
are having a part in Altrusa’s projects. Altrusa invite you to
come have lunch and shop around.

DEAR ABBY: I’m in-
credibly fond of my friend
“Russell.” He is always sup-
portive, considerate and kind
to me. However, I know that
he is into S&M and this wor-
ries me, as I can’t reconcile
the two different people -- a
gentle person with someone
wanting to dominate and pos-
sibly hurt a woman in bed.
Should I be worried that
Russell is hiding a dark side
that will eventually come
out and ruin our friendship?
-- WORRIED FRIEND IN
AUSTRALIA
DEAR WORRIED: You
and Russell must be very
close friends if he is describ-
ing his sexual practices with
you. My experts tell me that
acting out on aggressive fan-
tasies does not necessarily
mean a person IS aggressive.
As long as your relation-
ship remains platonic, what he
does in the bedroom shouldn’t
affect it. But if you’re consid-
ering taking your friendship
with Russell to another level,
it’s important that you talk
further about this. If this isn’t
something you’re interested
in exploring -- and it isn’t for
everyone -- then draw the line
or move on.
Girl Is Unsure How to
Approach Mom Just Out of
Rehab
DEAR ABBY: I’m a
14-year-old girl, and my
mother just got home from
rehab. I have been living with
my grandmother for a year
and a half.
I want to tell my mother
my feelings, but I don’t want
to hurt her. I love her, but I’m
still not over what she has
done. She is barely home.
She has meetings, and she
likes to stay with her boy-
friend. I think it’s too soon.
She came home only a week
ago. What do I do, Abby? --
CONFUSED TEEN
DEAR CONFUSED: You
have my sympathy. I hope
your mother’s rehabilitation
will be successful. It’s good
that she is going to meetings,
and I agree with you that it’s
too soon for her to be staying
with her boyfriend.
However, she’s unlikely to
accept hearing it from you or
me, which is why you should
talk to your grandmother
about your feelings. Your
mother might accept it if she
hears from your grandmoth-
er that should there be any
“bumps” in her relationship
with this man -- and there
usually are a few -- that they
could jeopardize her sobriety.
Mom Frowns on in Laws’
‘Kiss Attacks’ on Son
DEAR ABBY: I have a
19-month-old son, “Nicky.”
He stays at my in-laws’ house
most days while my husband
and I work. Lately, I’ve no-
ticed when I go to pick him
up that Grandma and Grand-
pa like to give him “kiss at-
tacks,” where they hold him
“hostage” and give him sev-
eral kisses.
Sometimes he lets them,
and it’s not a problem. Other
times he squirms, whines and
tells them no. It’s painful to
watch, especially when they
respond with, “I know you’re
not going to like this, but I’m
going to do it anyway.”
I think this is a huge viola-
tion of my son’s boundaries.
It teaches him he should just
give in because nobody cares
that he’s uncomfortable. My
husband thinks Nicky is too
young to understand, and that
it’s not going to hurt him to
have extra affection.
I’m an affectionate person
who likes to hug and kiss my
son, too, but if he’s not in the
mood, I let him be. Who is
right? -- LOVING MOMMY
IN COLORADO
DEAR LOVING MOM-
MY: You are. Affection is
something welcome. If you
don’t want it, it’s not affec-
tion. The most signifcant
issues in child development
have to do with nurturing and
building trust. However well
meant, holding a child “hos-
tage” is more a display of
power than affection.
If your in-laws stopped
“attacking,” your son would
be more likely to seek their
affection when he wants it.
A better way to demonstrate
their love for him would be
to do something creative, like
draw a picture showing their
affection for him.
