Settling in: Hotel renovations proceeding

January 18, 2012

More than five years — and $25 million — after announcing their plans to renovate the historic downtown Settles Hotel, Big Spring natives Brint and Kristopher Ryan may be close enough to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

However, after plenty of missed deadlines already behind them, Kris Ryan, general manager of the Settles Hotel Development Company and overseer of the restoration project, said any projected completion date is a nightmare just waiting to happen when dealing with a project of this magnitude.

Water main break cancels out classes

January 18, 2012

No school, but this time it wasn't because of ice and snow.

A 20-inch main water break, which occurred Tuesday night on the north side of the Big Spring High School campus, caused the Big Spring Independent School District and Howard College campus to cancel classes for the day.

“We discovered the issue about 6:30 this morning when a parent called, which caused us to discover the break,” Director of Maintenance and Transportation at BSISD Wayland Pierce said.
