Itâs about bringing the unforgettable experience home.
Local resident Karen Ivy is working with Center for Cultural Interexchange to ensure area residents are able to experience different cultures without ever having to leave home. For the past three years, Ivy has been serving as area coordinator and as a host family.

Big Spring City Council is expected to put the finishing touches on ordinances and the fee schedule for the new municipal aquatic center Tuesday night, just in time for the facilityâs grand opening next month.
First reading of the amendments to the city code and ordinances passed on a 6-1 vote May 10, with District 2 Councilman Manuel Ramirez Jr. the lone dissenter.
At the heart of Ramirezâs argument against the fee schedule is the proposed $5 entrance fee for swimmers age 3 years and up, a sharp increase from the $2 fee charged before the municipal swimming pool was closed.
