Howard College is offerings students at its Big Spring campus an enticement to enroll early, and it's a doozy â€” anyone who completes early enrollment for the fall 2013 semester as a full-time student (at least 12 semester hours) by the end of business Tuesday will be entered into a drawing for a full scholarship which would cover the entire 2013-2014 college year.
The scholarship is valued at approximately $3,600, said Rebecca Villanueva of the college's enrollment office.

Howard County commissioners are expected to discuss and decide how to move forward â€” or if to move forward at all â€” with bids recently received for a parcel of property located on the north side of Big Spring during Monday morning's meeting.
