May 6, 2011

Were it said that Big Spring has something to bark about this weekend, well, someone might be hanging their head in shame. Certainly, there would be no tail-wagging over that bad pun.

Admission is free and the show, or shows — the event is actually two separate dog shows — begin at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. The coliseum doors will open at 8 a.m.

Pressure no problem for Stanton's Montez

May 6, 2011

STANTON — The Texas High School Track and Field Meet is one high-stakes event, but Adam Montez just may be pressure-proof.

After all, the Stanton High School senior has already thrived under one of the most pressure-packed situations a track and field runner can find himself in.

At last week's Region I-2A track meet in Odessa, a false start disqualified Montez from the 400-meter run final, meaning he went into the 800-meter run facing his last chance to qualify for the state meet.

No pressure, right?
