Carving a niche

October 13, 2011

To you or me, a block of wood is a block of wood — but to one of the Mustang Draw Woodcarver’s Club members, it’s a work of art waiting to happen.
The club will hold its annual Show and Sale beginning Monday at Dora Roberts Community Center. There, you can purchase almost any kind of artwork done in wood. And, if you have the hankering, you can learn a thing or two about the craft yourself.
As part of the annual exhibition, club members will hold classes from Monday to Thursday on various forms of woodcarving, ranging from beginner’s work to more advanced art.

Forsan vs.Coahoma

October 13, 2011

Coahoma beats Forsan 56-0. The only thing needed to see these numbers on the scoreboard this week is to get the Delorean up to 88 mph and go back in time a year. Things should be a lot different when the Bulldogs travel to face the Buffaloes Friday night.

The 5-1 (2-0 in district) Forsan Buffaloes are riding a four-game win streak into this week's district match-up, while the Bulldogs, 4-3 (3-0), are riding a three-game streak of their own.

Steers need a win

October 13, 2011

Playoff hopes are still alive in Big Spring, — and still very possible, with the district the way it is — but one thing is certain: The Steers need a win.

Theoretically, two wins get the Black and Gold into the post season, with the easiest — make that the most likely — scenarios being defeating Sweetwater and Wylie.

A loss Friday night in Sweetwater does not mathematically eliminate the Steers, but it makes their road a difficult one which relies on beating Snyder at home, along with several other factors along the way.
