A neo-Nazis group based out of Detroit, Mich., may be planning a â€śfully uniformed rallyâ€ť in the Crossroads area, according to local sources.
The National Socialist Movement â€” which the Big Spring Herald recently reported was leaving flyers and pamphlets at area residents' homes â€” will likely be holding a rally in Big Spring, Midland or Odessa, according to a local resident speaking on the condition of anonymity.
A moving memorial to victims of a horrifying disease will be on display at the Heritage Museum beginning Wednesday.
Eight blocks of the AIDS Memorial Quilt will be displayed at the museum through the end of January, Curator Tammy Schrecengost said.
The quilt, which in its entirety weighs more than 54 tons, was first displayed in 1987 at the National Mall in Washington D.C. It consists of panels sewn by friends and family members of those who died from Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

The crowd at Steer Gym on Friday wasn't happy with the officiating late in the game, which drew boos from Big Spring natives who thought a couple of traveling calls were omitted for Lubbock Cooper, while the Steers were being unfairly called for fouls.
In the end, the Pirates held on to defeat the Steers 59-51.
Cooper's Brent Carlson made 14-of-18 free throws during the game and the Pirates never relinquished the lead.
After a see-saw first half, the Steers found themselves trailing by 12 with under three minutes to play in the third stanza.
