Bornefeld shoots to win;
Port Arthur’s Bornefeld is ready for rifle scholarship
Nationally ranked shooter Christina M. Bornefeld received a four-year rifle scholarship to Jacksonville State University in Alabama. The Monsignor Kelly High School student is the daughter of Bruce K. and Vicki A. Bornefeld of Port Arthur.
Her father reports this is the first rifle scholarship awarded to a Kelly student.
Bornefeld is involved with the Texas State Rifle Association, the National Rifle Association, USA Shooting Sports and Civilian Marksmanship matches. She began shooting with Jefferson County 4-H Club. This past summer she finished sixth in the Women’s National Prone Position Championship. She will compete again this summer.
The right ribs
I’m sure that when decorations were ordered for the Champagne & Ribs Hog Wild party featuring pigs with bells on, no one was thinking of swine flu. Oh well, you’ve got to laugh at life.
These hogs represented motorcycles and the ribs were just right at the jam-packed event this past Thursday at Cowboy Harley-Davidson. Folks gladly dined to help raise money for the Julie Rogers Gift of Life Prostate Cancer Program.
