Big Spring City Council approved a couple of measures Tuesday night designed to move the annual seal coat program forward for the third year in a row.
The council unanimously approved an inter-local agreement with other local government entities for joint bidding and engineering management for the 2013 seal coat project, including a contract with engineering firm Parkhill, Smith & Cooper for the same project.
What was supposed to be a one-time surprise birthday party for a former Big Spring resident more than two years ago has turned into something much, much more. Saturday, the self-proclaimed â€śBig Spring Bunchâ€ť will be getting together once again to get a first-hand look at the historic Hotel Settles.
Jack Bowen, a Crossroads native and graduate of Big Spring High School, will join fellow Bunch members James Bowen, Danny Zant, Warren Kelley and Lloyd Curley to tour the city and enjoy a lunch at the hotel restaurant.
