SWEETWATER — The Big Spring Steers changed their offensive attack early in Friday night's district game in Sweetwater, but were unable to come up with a different result, as they fall to the Mustangs 28-6.

Garrett Stuteville hit Toby Rodgers on a 23-yard touchdown pass at the halfway point of the fourth quarter for Big Spring's only points, as the Black and Gold fall to 0-8 on the season.

Carving a niche

October 13, 2011

To you or me, a block of wood is a block of wood — but to one of the Mustang Draw Woodcarver’s Club members, it’s a work of art waiting to happen.
The club will hold its annual Show and Sale beginning Monday at Dora Roberts Community Center. There, you can purchase almost any kind of artwork done in wood. And, if you have the hankering, you can learn a thing or two about the craft yourself.
As part of the annual exhibition, club members will hold classes from Monday to Thursday on various forms of woodcarving, ranging from beginner’s work to more advanced art.
