â€˘ FERNANDO DELGADO, 18, of 707 E. 12th St., was arrested Sunday on charges of selling, manufacturing, distributing or possession of fictitious driver's license or ID certificate, possession of marijuana in a drug free zone â€“ two ounces or less and consumption of alcohol by a minor.

The Lady Hawks (13-7, 1-3) had an opening on the schedule due to a cancellation by Mountain View Junior College, so HC Head Women's Basketball Coach Earl Diddle took advantage of Southwest Texas Junior College's visit to the area and set up a game with the Cowgirls.
â€śWe had a chance to play since they were up here on the SWCID capus,â€ť Diddle said. â€śIt worked out well. They have a good team â€” they play other WJCAC teams as well â€” this late in the year, it's better than a practice and we were able to accomplish a lot of things.â€ť
The Steers may have fallen to 0-3 in District 4-3A play Friday at Steer Gym, but they still gave the fans their money's worth during the 54-49 loss to Greenwood.
Big Spring started off strong, outscoring the Rangers 15-9 in the first quarter. Greenwood mounted an attack and went on a 15-6 run in the second period, including a three-point shot which gave them the lead four minutes before the halfway mark. The Steers went into the locker room at the break down 26-21.
The quantity of entries may have been down, but the quality was as high as ever at the Big Spring Independent School District Science Fair Friday, officials said.
For various reasons, fewer entries were received this year, said Darrell Ryan, coordinator of the event.
â€śBecause of scheduling changes at the junior high, we had fewer students participate,â€ť Ryan said. â€śAnd the high school sponsor is fighting an illness, so we didn't have any entries from there to judge (Friday).â€ť
But a decrease in numbers didn't take away from the quality of the entries, Ryan added.
The good news for anyone facing bullying is there's an effective way to fight back â€” and it doesn't involve fighting at all.
