For some Crossroads residents, a hot, home-cooked Thanksgiving meal is simply out of reach, both financially and physically. However, the Big Spring Area Salvation Army will be reaching out to those folks this week, as the local charity presents its annual holiday meal.
While the effort reaches out to low-income families, the hungry and others, it all begins with hard work from numerous volunteers.
With Black Friday just days away, many Crossroads residents are gearing up for a day of shopping with friends and family. However, law abiding citizens won't be the only ones looking to check off names on their Christmas lists; law enforcement officials say it will likely be a busy day for criminals.
Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the Big Spring Police Department, said thieves will be out and about Friday â€” as well as the rest of the holiday season â€” just waiting to fill their stockings with ill-gotten gains.
