COLORADO CITY — Finding the right words may get them somewhere.
At least that's what Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer said at a press conference here Wednesday morning concerning 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, who has been missing since Dec. 27.
“We certainly want to locate Hailey,” Kampfer said. “At this point we want to find Hailey and we have to do something to get us to a new level.”
Area residents curious about the customs and traditions of Native Americans will get a chance to see first hand how the first Americans have fun, as the Big Spring Powwow gets ready to once again take over the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum Saturday and Sunday.
The Powwow — a Native American tradition that includes competitive dancing and other activities — will begin Saturday with gourd dancing at 10 a.m., according to Big Spring Powwow Committee Treasurer Connie Lesser, and continue throughout the day.
Water conservation has been moved to the forefront of a lot of issues.
Johansen's Nursery is hosting Water Conservation in the Landscape Friday at 6 p.m. for residents who are wanting to find out how to conserve water. There will also be time alloted for a question and answer session.
“It's going to come down to sustaining a good, viable water source,” Steve Parish, sales distributor for Gard'n Wise said. “If the water dries up, industry dries up, jobs dry up and people move away. It's a lot more than having green grass.”
