Hawks down WTC in opener

May 4, 2012

LUBBOCK — The Howard College Hawks and the Western Texas College Westerners aren't exactly strangers passing in the night.

The two have met four times this year in Western Junior College Athletic Conference play, in which WTC was outscored by the Hawks 37-3.

A turnaround wasn't in the cards for the Westerners on Thursday, as they found themselves on the short end of an 8-0 ball game in the Hawks' regional championship opener.

Steers take Game One of bi-district

May 4, 2012

MINERAL WELLS — There is no telling how deep into the playoffs the Big Spring Steers baseball squad could go this season, but if they maintain their current pace, it may be a few more weeks before the fans run out of games to attend.

BSHS Coach Bert Otto said prior to the bi-district series opener that he believed his team could compete with Iowa Park in the playoffs.

He was right.

The Steers took the first game by a score of 5-1 and will head into Game Two with the all-important momentum any coach would like when squaring off against the region's best.

42nd annual dog show Saturday and Sunday

May 3, 2012

Dotty for dachsunds? Psyched about shih tzus? Wowed by Welsh corgis?

Hundreds of this region's best show dogs will put their best paws forward this weekend at the Big Spring Kennel Club's annual Dog Show, set for Saturday and Sunday at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

The 42nd annual show opens at 8 a.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Admission is free.

Betty Kelley, one of the event's organizers, said high gasoline prices will probably hold down entries, but added that she still expects more than 400 dogs, some from as far away as Arizona, to participate this weekend.

Early voting off to slow start

May 3, 2012

Howard County Elections Administrator Saundra Bloom says early voting has gotten off to a slow start in the May 12 municipal election, a surprising fact considering what's at stake in this year's municipal election.

By the way, polls will be open until 7 this evening at the county courthouse.

“We opened up Monday with approximately 150 votes,” Bloom said. “Tuesday we had about 126 ballots, which was much slower than what we were expecting. Wednesday was around the same neighborhood. I'm not sure why things are moving so slowly.”

Great artists have to start somewhere.

Heritage Museum and Big Spring High School art students are running with that idea. The Big Spring High School Student Art Show will be on display in the museum gallery until May 15.

During this time, the public will have access to viewing more than 100 works from local students.

“The works are examples of various assignments given throughout the school year,” said BSHS Art Teacher Judy Tereletsky. “Each student was asked to pick at least one item to display.”
