Early voting in the Republican and Democratic primaries got under way Monday.
“We had 81 people come in on Monday and 61 on Tuesday. Things were moving just as slow on Wednesday,” Bloom said. “This is a lot slower than we were expecting.”
Bloom said despite the lack of voters, the process has gone well.

Hawks drop Region 5 championship to Cisco

May 17, 2012

LUBBOCK — It wasn't exactly how Howard College Head Baseball Coach Britt Smith wanted the season to end, but as he pointed out after the Hawks' 5-2 loss to the Cisco College Wranglers on Wednesday, “These guys went 91-25 in two years. That's .800 baseball — you can't ask for much better than that.”

One bad inning — the top of the second — would come back to haunt the Hawks as the normally dependable starting pitcher Logan Ehlers and the defense gave up five Cisco runs on five hits, a walk and an error.

“(Ehlers) was on short rest,” Smith said. “He didn't have the same velocity.”
