Law enforcement officials say they are still waiting on preliminary findings from the laboratory examining what is believed to be a piece of a human skull discovered Dec. 20 in Howard County.
Howard County Sheriff Stan Parker said he had hoped to have a preliminary report on the skull last week, but as of yet the laboratory examining the evidence has not yet released any information.
While Big Spring boysâ€™ basketball head coach Cliff Thompson is counting down the days until District 5-3A play begins, heâ€™s also making sure the Steers are fully equipped for the ride.
That includes making sure every aspect of his team is at its highest level before that Jan. 14 matchup at Brownwood and adding a few new wrinkles to the offense.
The Steers have been adding new plays and hope to test them in tonightâ€™s game against Lubbock Cooper at 7:30 p.m. in Steer Gym.
