Editorial: Spirit of the boomtown in Borger lives on

Tim Howsare

Small towns across America are struggling and Borger is no exception. Those of us who have lived here all of our lives, or people like me who work here, know about the glory days when Borger was a boomtown.
You can go down to the Hutchinson County Historical Museum and see the old photographs of Borger after “the first 90 days.”
It looks like a smaller version of downtown Chicago or Boston during that same era.
