Another wave comes in.
New officers and members were installed for the 2012 year of the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County during the organization’s annual meeting Tuesday.
Agencies and board members gathered at Dora Roberts Community Center for a recap of last year’s success and to share what’s in store for the coming year.
While the state's situation regarding redistricting has left many counties in limbo regarding upcoming election dates — most notably the political party primaries currently slated for April 3 — Howard County election officials say it's full steam ahead for them.

Quick basketball lesson: If you keep the other team from scoring, your chances for victory become ridiculously easy.
The Big Spring Lady Steers took that lesson to heart Tuesday, using ferocious defensive pressure to hound the Monahans Lady Loboes into submission en route to a 67-24 non-district basketball victory at Steer Gym Tuesday night.
Big Spring served notice from the start what kind of night it would been when the Lady Steers blanked Monahans in the first quarter â€” and it barely got better for the Lady Loboes from there.
