Rodeo week is a big one for Howard County residents, especially the old settlers.
The 87th Annual Settlers Reunion will conclude rodeo week, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 18 at the Heritage Museum.
“It started out as a big family reunion for residents of Glasscock and Howard counties and it has evolved over the years,” Museum Director Nancy Raney said.
ORSAN — The splash is back.
Forsan Independent School District's swimming pool, which has offered a way for area residents to beat the heat for several years, is once again open for business.
The pool's annual summer run began Memorial Day and will last until August, FISD Superintendent Randy Johnson said.
As temperatures heat up, many area residents will turn their attention to local lakes and swimming pools to try to keep cool. However, according to officials with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, fun in the water can quickly turn deadly without proper supervision for children.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ AARON KEITH HILL, 24, of 1304 Stanford, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of public intoxication.
â€˘ STEVEN VALENCIA GAMBOA, 27, of 506 N. Nolan, was arrested Tuesday on charges of driving while license suspended/invalid â€“ no insurance and failure to maintain financial responsibility.
â€˘ GILBERT JOSHUA MUNOZ, 25, of 2603 Ent, was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession of a controlled substance and a warrant from another agency.
Clyde W. Treadway, 83, of Big Spring died Monday, June 6, 2011, in a Stanton nursing home. No services are planned.
