When considering their next budget, Big Spring Independent School District officials can at least say that things could be worse.
BSISD, like other Texas school districts, will have to cope with a significant loss of revenue, thanks to the state legislature's decision to slash $4 billion in aid to schools over the next two years.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ BRANDI NICOLE RIGDON, 20, of 1416 Stadium, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of consumption of alcohol by a minor.
â€˘ LEROY COLEMAN, 22, of 2510 Hunter Dr., was arrested Tuesday on a warrant from another agency.
