As the Big Spring Police Department and Howard County Sheriff's Office move toward more consolidated services, several changes are on the horizon.
The most obvious sign of change, however, just may be a locked door.
During a Wednesday news conference, Big Spring Police Department Chief Lonnie Smith and Howard County Sheriff Stan Parker announced several steps the two agencies are taking to offer more consolidated services to area citizens.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ LEIGH ANN MCKENDREE, 44, of Arkansas, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of public intoxication.
â€˘ KASSAUNDRA DYHAN MUNOZ, 21, of 1007 Sycamore, was arrested Tuesday on warrants for no driver's license â€“ when unlicensed and failure to appear.
â€˘ BURGLARY OF A VEHICLE was reported in the 800 block of W. Interstate Highway 20.
â€˘ BURGLARY OF A HABITATION was reported in the 2600 block of Hunter.
The Howard County Sheriffâ€™s Office reported the following activity:
Kathlyn M. Trevey (Kaye) died Sept. 19, 2011, at Parkview Nursing Home in Big Spring, Texas. Kaye was born Nov. 5, 1921, in Scurry County, Texas, to Lackey Scott and Alpha M. Trevey. She lived most of her life in the Snyder, Big Spring and Midland areas.
In 1998, Kaye went to live in the Royal Neighbor Fraternal Organizationâ€™s home in Davenport, Iowa. She returned to West Texas in 2004. She was a long time member of the Royal Neighbors, the Rebekahs and served in leadership in local as well as state levels of both organizations.
The Big Spring Lady Steers remained undefeated in district play, defeating Snyder in Steer Gym in three identical 25-14 matches.
Despite dropping from number nine to nineteen in the the latest Texas coaches poll, the Lady Steers remain a tough challenge for any opponent and their play continues to improve from week to week.
Brenda Tingley, 66, of Big Spring died Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011, at her residence. Her services are pending with Nalley-Pickle & Welch Funeral Home & Crematory of Big Spring.
Federal agents from San Angelo — assisted by local law enforcement — executed a search warrant today during the early morning hours in Coahoma as part of a child pornography investigation.
According to Howard County Sheriff Stan Parker, the search warrant was executed at approximately 6:30 a.m. at a residence.
Officials with the sheriff’s office assisted investigators with the San Angelo ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) department.
It was one of those things that just couldn’t wait.
Big Spring Independent School District trustees held a five-minute special meeting Monday to grant a utility easement at the sites where four new elementary campuses are being constructed.
The easement with ONCOR, the local electricity provider, will allow the company to move power lines out of the way so that construction of the new schools can proceed on schedule.
