Rangers to face Canadian

The Rangers will be at home again this Friday night when they host the state ranked Canadian Wildcats. Game time is 7 p.m.

The Rangers come into the game with a 1-1 record. They lost their season opener to Dumas, 51-20. They rebounded the next week, and picked up a 22-14 win over the Childress Bobcats.

Around the district last Friday, Lubbock Estacado beat Pampa, 30-24; Levelland fell to Shallowater, 28-20; Dalhart was blasted by Bushland, 61-8; and Borger picked up a 33-23 win over Lubbock High.

The Wildcats are ranked number two in the state in 3A, DII by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football. They are also pegged to repeat as district champions. Last year they were 14-2, advancing to the state finals, losing to Newton.

Canadian began its season with a 36-22 victory over West Texas High in a close game. Canadian led 14-6 at the half, but going into the fourth quarter, the Comanches had closed the gap to 28-22. The Wildcats sealed the win in the fourth.

Pam Chisum honored as Kiwanis Workhorse of Year

Pam Chisum was named the Kiwanis Club Workhorse of the Year for 2019. She received the honor at the club’s annual installation banquet on Sept. 10.

The Workhorse award was presented by Kiwanis Club treasurer Cindy Smith.

“Pam has worked behind the scenes in many nonprofit organizations in Perryton,” said Smith. “She isn’t someone who seeks recognition for years of service among a variety of community organizations, but recognition is long overdue.”

Chisum was a graduate of the first Perryton Leadership class and has volunteered with local organizations for decades.

She has volunteered for the Perryton Rodeo Association for over 20 years, including working at events and fundraising.

Rangers top Bobcats 22-14

Although the game got off to a rocky start for Perryton, the Ranger defense held the Bobcat offense in check throughout most of the game, and the Rangers notched a 22-14 win over Childress Friday night at Ranger Field.

Kenny Ramirez had a good night as well, scoring 16 of the Rangers’ points with three field goals, one touchdown and an extra point.

The Rangers took the opening kick off and started at their own 19 yard line. They moved the ball to the 36 yard line before fumbling the ball to Childress. Luckily, the Bobcats couldn’t capitalize. Going for it on fourth down, Ranger Jahir Romero dropped Bobcat quarterback Collin Bishop for a 3 yard loss and Perryton took over.

Xcel Energy customers to receive refunds this month

Xcel Energy’s Texas customers will see a credit on their electric bills this month that reflect a one-time $16 million fuel cost refund announced in June.

The refund, which has been approved the Public Utility Commission of Texas, is related to several months of lower costs for natural gas used to fuel area power plants – savings that are expected to continue with the addition of the new Hale Wind Project near Plainview, which started commercial operations at the end of June.

All of Xcel Energy’s various customer classes will receive funds. Depending on billing cycles, the refunds could be prorated over a twomonth period. Residential customers using 1,000 kilowatt-hours a month would receive a total credit of $14.53, higher than the refund Texas customers received in January that amounted to $11.76 on a typical residential bill.
