January 28, 2013

State Sen. Kel Seliger has filed a pair of bills with the legislature he hopes will address two of his most important concerns for his District 31 constituents: education and water.

Seliger filed SB 225, which focuses on public education in the Lone Star State and will help streamline the graduation process for students and reform the existing high-stakes tests.

Candidate filings set to take off

January 28, 2013

Recent history suggests that, when it comes to school board elections, it’s a matter of “if, not when.”
School board elections are traditionally held in conjunction with municipal elections each May, but in the past several years, contested races have been the rare exception rather than the rule.
Area school districts will see if that trend continues or is interrupted in the coming weeks as they issue calls for the 2013 elections.
Candidate filings begin Wednesday and continue through March 1, officials said.

BSHS girls, boys topple Snyder to keep playoff hopes intact

January 26, 2013

Big Spring

Boys

The Steers kept their chance of earning a postseason berth alive Friday with a 67-43 rout of visiting Snyder.

Less than a minute into the game, Tyler Graves put up four points and Tavaris Walker registered his first two points of the outing, putting BSHS up 6-0.

Looking dominant on defense, the Steers forced three straight turnovers — all of which turned into points.

Snyder was unable to put together a meaningful rally, as BSHS led the Tigers from start to finish.
