Rangers to host Childress Friday; admission is free

The Rangers will host the Childress Bobcats this Friday night at Ranger Field. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Admission to the game will be free, thanks to Seaboard Foods. The company bought the game out, so everyone will be admitted free of charge.

In addition, Seaboard has also donated 200 pork burgers to the PHS ag department, which runs the concession stand, for them to sell as a fund-raiser.

Motorcycle riders in the area are invited to gather behind PHS Friday night at 6:30 p.m. to help “Rev Up the Rangers” as they head onto the field to take on Childress. Coach Steven Coursey stressed that “this is a super special tradition here in Perryton. It definitely is something that sends chills up and down your spine and gets our kids ready to go!”

The Bobcats are 0-1. They lost their season opener to Bushland, 29-22. Bushland was ahead 20-0 at the end of the first quarter, and was up 27-7 at the half. The Bobcats rallied in the second half, but came up short.

Former Perryton resident among victims of Odessa mass shooting

A former Perryton resident was among the seven people killed during a mass shooting in Odessa on Aug. 31.

Edwin Peregrino was a 2011 graduate of Top of Texas Accelerated Education Center.

Peregrino, 25, was visiting his parents in Odessa when he heard gunshots, stepped into the backyard to see what was happening, and was shot and killed by the gunman, Seth Ator, an Odessa truck driver, who was eventually killed by police.

Peregrino’s brother-inlaw was also shot, but he is recovering.

Peregrino had moved to San Antonio just two weeks ago for work, but was visiting family for the Labor Day weekend.

Peregrino’s family has set up a GoFundMe to help pay for funeral expenses. The page can be found at https://www.gofundme.com/f/8uh33u-odessa-victim.

Demons burn Rangers, 51-20

Although the Rangers drew first blood in the contest, the Dumas Demons scored 42 unanswered points after that to propel them to a 51-20 victory Friday night at Demon Stadium.

The game started off well for the Rangers, even though the Perryton offense was off the field for most of the first quarter.

Dumas took the opening kickoff, and drove down to the Ranger 29 yard line. Perryton stalled their drive, and the Demons were soon facing 4th down and 5 at the 29. They initially made it, but a penalty negated it and they were back to 4th and 5.

A Man on a Mission…

By Dr. Don Newbury

The Idle American

Mickey Eddins didn’t want folks to make a “big todo” about him or his western accessory business, but that’s simply too bad.

“If he hadn’t wanted a ‘big to-do’ made about what he’s done, he shouldn’t a’done ‘em,” said one of the 400-plus guests crowded into the M&F showroom recently to honor him and Linda—his wife of 59 years—and their sons and families. Friends gathered in friendship, respect, reverence, curiosity and awe for the firm’s 50th anniversary, and to “rib” Mickey for a spell.

Somebody joked that even if nearby garage sales hadn’t been held simultaneously, the bash would still have been “wall-towall.”….
