PD: Phone call was a hoax

April 5, 2012

Officials with the Big Spring Police Department say an emergency phone call received Wednesday afternoon reporting a possible homicide in the 600 block of Caylor was a hoax, although the matter is still under investigation.

According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, officers responded to the scene after a man called 911 saying he had killed someone.

“Dispatch received the call from an inactivated cell phone,” Everett said Wednesday afternoon. “A male subject advised that he had killed someone at 601 Caylor, repeated the message and hung up.”

Hotel Settles reconstruction moving along

April 5, 2012

A piece of history will soon come back to life in Big Spring, with a little modern twist. According to Bill Cole, Hotel Settles director of operations, construction is moving along and a “soft” opening is set for August.

For 30 years, Hotel Settles — which shut its doors in 1982 — has been closed to the public, but by the end of this year, the majestic building will again be reopened. The Healthy Woman Advisory Council had the privilege Wednesday afternoon of having the first “official” meeting in the hotel.
