Tempers flared during Tuesday night's meeting of the Big Spring City Council, as the council approved a zoning ordinance designed to define and shape the use of modular homes, temporary workforce housing and â€śman campsâ€ť on a 4-2 vote.
The council opted to remove language from the ordinance which addresses the use of intermodal shipping containers â€” otherwise known as sea containers â€” and would, in its former incarnation, ban the use of the containers for housing purposes within the city limit.
Lemonade stands, once a summertime staple, have gone the way of Pet Rocks and 8-tracks, but one local boy is bringing them back for a good cause.
Seven-year-old Logan Henry, the son of Russell and Stephanie Russell, has opened one of the venerable stands in front of his parents' home on Carleton Street to help raise money for the Isaiah 58 food bank. His first effort earlier this month raised more than $50 and he'll be back hawking lemonade this Saturday.
According to his mother, Stephanie, helping others is simply in Logan's nature.
