Lady Steers’ season ends at Snyder; Segundo, BSHS boys take care of Tigers

February 9, 2011

SNYDER — The Big Spring Lady Steers are entering the offseason a little earlier than they wanted.

In a win-and-in scenario, Snyder clinched third place and a playoff berth with a 44-32 win over Big Spring Tuesday night in the season finale.

The Lady Steers’ woes in the first half continued, which was a big reason for the loss. Big Spring scored seven points in the first half.
But despite that, Big Spring made Snyder sweat a little bit, getting within 10 a few times in the second half after the slow start.

Bird Poop: Buteo regalis, up, up and away

February 8, 2011

Soaring in the emptiness of a winter sky, it had been seen for weeks. Spotted atop a weathered telephone pole, the large bird had been watched by a game warden as it searched the ground for any movement.

“Robert Lee,” said the male voice when I asked again for a location through the static of his call. “Who?” I asked. “Not who, but where,” he jokingly replied.
