Many students eligible for free, reduced-price meals

August 18, 2011

With the start of school less than a week away, local school officials are notifying parents of qualifying families they still have time to register for free or reduced-priced meals for their children.
And the process is easier than one might expect.
Judi Rodriguez, director of food services for Big Spring Independent School District, said all applications for free or reduced-price meals will be submitted online. If parents don't have internet access at their homes, they can use computers set aside for their use at the BSISD food service office at 708 E. 11th Place.

Chamber board promotes positive focus

August 18, 2011

Positive thinking was the focus of the August Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce board meeting, held Wednesday.
“We need to start overcoming the negative thinking and we can start by focusing on the positives,” Terri Johansen, chamber president, said. “With all going on in the world it's easy to focus on the negative, especially with the lack of rain and school finances.”
Debbye ValVerde, chamber executive director, delivered the financial report which showed a large profit from the carnival held in June.

In the zone: Zero tolerance promised in school zones

August 18, 2011

School zone signs will start flashing again Monday as students head back to school.
This year, school zones have an added precaution — no cell phone usage. According to Municipal Court Judge Tim Green, the no cell phone usage was passed in the 2009 legislative session after the no-texting-while-driving passed both houses but was vetoed at the governor's desk.
“The no cellphone usage in school zones was able to make it out, which makes it unique, considering the no-texting in all other areas was turned down,” Green said.

Lady Steers find unfriendly foes

August 17, 2011

The Big Spring Lady Steers fell to the Frenship Lady Tigers Tuesday night in four matches, even after an energetic, exciting start. The scores of 23-25, 25-22, 18-25 and 15-25 in no way measured the effort put into this one by the hometown girls. Despite the wave of emotion present at Steer gym, the Lady Tigers got some momentum behind them and never looked back.

After falling behind 7-11 in the first match, Big Spring rallied and tied the game at 15 apiece, then again at 18, before eventually succumbing to the high-flying aerial attack of Frenship and falling 23-25.

Healthy Woman event to focus on buckling up kids

August 17, 2011

When listing all the things parents can do for their children, properly installing a car seat usually doesn't come to mind.

But having the the right kind of car seat in your vehicle and, more importantly, making sure your child is properly restrained may be among the most important things parents ever do, officials say.

Car seat safety will be the topic for this month's Healthy Woman event, scheduled for 8 a.m. until noon Aug. 27 at the Scenic Mountain Medical Center north parking lot.
