‘Dogs sink 11 treys in 54-41 win over Buffs

December 20, 2014

The Coahoma Bulldogs might want to petition AT&T for a sponsorship package after their performance against rival Forsan on Friday in the Coahoma gymnasium.

Lady Steers tramp Grape Creek, 68-17

December 20, 2014

It probably wouldn’t surprise anyone if the Grape Creek Lady Eagles had decided to purchase Kasey Delafuente a roll of duct tape for an early Christmas gift after the way she played on Friday. She may, the Lady Eagles probably felt, need to duct tape her shadow to her back so she doesn’t lose it after being everywhere on the floor.

It is probably pretty safe to say Tobyn Tannehill, Kei-Shawn Broussard and Ty Sealy won’t be mistaken for Santa Claus anytime soon by anyone in Seminole. Especially after the performance the three turned in en route to leading the Big Spring High School Steers to a 61-53 victory over the Seminole Indians in front of a festive crowd in the Steer Gym on Friday.

Thomas served as a chaplain at the local VAMC for many years before retiring, but still volunteers his service to the chaplain’s department, while Perry travels from Odessa at least once a week to help transport veterans to and from doctor’s appointments in the VAMC’s service area.
The quilts were sewn by Kathy McFarland and Lois Cunningham.

Commissioners to meet Monday

December 20, 2014

Howard County commissioners are expected to decide the final fate of the old show barns at the fairgrounds when they hold their final meeting of the year at 10 a.m. Monday on the third floor of the county courthouse.
Commissioners recently decided to advertise for bids to demolish most of the show barns at the fairgrounds, located adjacent to the Big Spring Rodeo Bowl.
The metal buildings, constructed in the mid to late 1950s, were rarely used outside of some annual stock shows, and even those have relocated to other venues, Howard County Judge Mark Barr said.
