Just as the community is important to the continuance of the United Way, the agencies are important to the purpose supported by the United Way.
â€śWe wouldn't be able to provide the help we do if it weren't for the community support, but then again we wouldn't be needed if there weren't agencies needing our support,â€ť Executive Director Sandy Stewart said.

Mix baseball with a prize fight and you'd have an idea how the Big Spring-Seminole baseball doubleheader went Thursday.
The Steers and Indians traded leads instead of haymakers, and the end result was a split decision â€” Big Spring came from behind to win game one, 11-10, before dropping game two 6-2.
With the results, Big Spring's record now stands at 10-9.
The Steers started off strong in Thursday's opener, scoring the game's first two runs in the bottom of the first inning.
