Oil spill life-threatening to water birds

January 11, 2011

The morning of Jan. 3 promised a return to some sort of normalcy. The holidays were now a pleasant memory. Awakening to the sunlight hitting our east windows was a reminder of a new day for 2005.

Halfway through a cup of coffee, the phone rang. Recognizing the game warden’s voice, I listened as he asked us to meet him in Stanton. The urgency of his request was understandable. Knowing about how long it would take him to drive from the Pecos River, we decided upon a meeting time.

Late shot sends Howard men past South Plains

January 11, 2011

The defending national champions just needed a little bit of daylight.

In Monday’s WJCAC opener, South Plains looked like the better team for most of the game, but once Howard College found an opportunity to steal a win, the Hawks didn’t waste it.

“We feel like we just got outplayed for three-fourths of the game,” Howard head coach Mark Adams said. “But the last eight minutes, we showed some aggression. We were much more physical with South Plains and we hit some big shots.”

Howard women stave off South Plains

January 11, 2011

Excuse the Howard College women’s basketball team for feeling a little thwarted in Monday’s WJCAC opener against South Plains.

The Hawks didn’t see a 2-3 zone defense at all in their first meeting with the Lady Texans in the WJCAC Pre-Conference Tournament, and they hadn’t seen one in a while. So they were a little surprised to see it Monday night.

“It kind of threw us off a little bit, but we got it under control,” said Twyla Ards, who had 10 points.

COAHOMA — The fact is as cold as Saturday morning's temperatures — Hailey Dunn could be just about anywhere. But neither that fact nor the chilly weather was going to stop a group of area residents from searching for her, anyway.


About 30 people gathered Saturday in this community, located about 25 miles west of the missing Colorado City teenager's home, to begin scouring Howard County for the girl.
