Mary Ferrell

January 18, 2012

A Tribute by her children

Mary Ferrell was a gentle, compassionate lady who selflessly and continually gave of herself. She blessed others through her acts of kindness, her kind words and her baking. She spread joy to loved ones and strangers alike by caroling each Christmas season, by spending time in visitation with those in need of encouragement and cheer, and by sending cards to those who God placed on her heart. She gave with quiet enthusiasm and compassion while neither drawing attention to herself nor expecting anything in return.

Roosevelt sweeps Forsan

January 18, 2012

FORSAN — A power outage of sorts kept the Forsan Buffaloes and Lady Buffs out of the win column against Lubbock Roosevelt Tuesday night.

Defensively, both teams had their moments against Roosevelt, but it was a different story on the other end of the court, as offensive shortcomings plagued both teams — The Lady Buffs dropped a 59-27 decision, while the Buffaloes ended the night on the short end of a 51-38 score.

Forsan's girls fell to 12-11 overall and 2-6 in District 3-2A play, while the boys dropped to 11-10 and 2-4.

BOYS' GAME

The first quarter of Tuesday's District 5-3A basketball game between Sweetwater and Big Spring featured five lead changes and ended with the visitors up by just a point, 11-10.

Midway through the second quarter, it was still a contest as the Mustangs trailed by just three (17-14). But the Steers caught fire at that point, going on a 15-1 run to lead by 17, 32-15, at halftime, and never looked back en route to a 64-35 win at Mustang Gym.
