Law enforcement officials are searching for a masked man who allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store during the early morning hours Sunday.
According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the Big Spring Police Department, the suspect entered the 7-Eleven convenience store in the 900 block of Willia just after 1 a.m. Sunday.
Driving past road work projects on Third and Fourth streets may be an inconvenience, but rest assured it's not exactly a walk in the park for the workers involved, either.
Paving just a small section of one of Big Spring's downtown streets is hot, smelly and exacting work, requiring the use of high-dollar specialized equipment and the labors of more than a dozen workers at a time, all to lay a strip of two-inch deep asphalt the length of a city block.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Monday and 7 a.m. today:
â€¢ JOSE LUIS RIVERA, 25, of 1900 Martin Luther King Blvd. Apt. 303, was arrested Monday on a warrant from another agency.
â€¢ SAM PENA JR., 33, of 208 N. Nolan, was arrested Monday on a warrant from another agency.
â€¢ JUAN GILBERT HINOJOSA, 41, of 610 Linda Lane, was arrested Monday on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
â€¢ JOSHUA DAVID DECKER, 23, of Stanton, Texas, was arrested Monday on warrants for speeding and failure to appear.
Virnette Reid Fowler, 94, of Midland, died Sunday, May 5, 2013, in a local hospital. A private family inurnment will be in Big Spring.
The family will receive friends from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Nalley-Pickle & Welch Funeral Home of Midland.
Survivors include two daughters, Catherine Fowler of Midland and Cynthia Wilson and husband, Stephen of Denton; one son, David Fowler and wife, DiAnn of Midland; five grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
ODESSA â€” The Hawks fought through a season of adversity, but now they can breathe for a moment â€” Howard College baseball will be represented at the Region V Tournament in Grand Prairie. But first, they had to get past Western Junior College Athletic Conference rival Odessa College.
It was the epitome of a must-win game Saturday as the Hawks' postseason fate would be determined by the outcome of the final meeting of a four-game series â€” as well as the regular season â€” between the Hawks and the Wranglers.
