August 19, 2011

New school years often mean changes, and the one that starts here Monday is no different.

And while most of the changes are somewhat subtle and not always noticeable to the general public, the biggest change at Big Spring Independent School District will be obvious to everyone.

Construction on four new elementary campuses, part of a $60 million renovation of the school district's infrastructure, will be in full swing during the coming school year and officials are promising to do everything they can to keep disruptions and inconveniences to a minimum.

New hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September, according to Terri Telchick, assistant city manager secretary.

Hard-hitting Coahoma leaves impression

August 19, 2011

The Coahoma Bulldogs seemed to get off to a slow start in Thursday night’s scrimmage against Clyde. Understandable, considering the size of the visiting team.

Even Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner commented on the size of the opposition.

“When we walked out, it looked like the field was slanted to one side,” Coach Gardner said.

But the size factor did not stay in play long as the hometown Bulldogs kept playing their own style of football; they hit everybody and they hit them hard.
