County to state: No unfunded mandates

January 23, 2011

A number of routine matters top the agenda for Howard County commissioners Monday morning, as the court looks to lend its support to House Joint Resolution 56, which calls for a constitutional amendment prohibiting unfunded and under‐funded mandates from the state of Texas.

County Judge Mark Barr said the county's resolution, if approved, will help show support for the House resolution, which touches on a sore issue among most county government officials.

Health clinic soon to be reality

January 23, 2011

It has been a long road from dream to reality for the Howard County Health Clinic.

The clinic, which has suffered more stops and starts than metropolitan rush hour traffic, will soon become reality, thanks to an outpouring of private and public support.

The latest push the clinic received came when it received $150,000 from the Big Spring Economic Development Corp. to help with renovation of the clinic's future home at 1300 Gregg. Clinic officials and BSEDC representatives put their signatures on the formal agreement Friday morning.

Lady Steers oust Snyder for first district win

January 22, 2011

Apparently, the Big Spring Lady Steers made up their minds in practice Wednesday they weren’t going to fall to 0-4 in District 5-3A play.

Whatever was said then, it definitely gave Big Spring a much-needed spark as the Lady Steers upended Snyder 59-53 Friday in Steer Gym.

“We were just determined,” BSHS center Cerbi Ritchey said. “In practice on Wednesday, we decided ‘Hey, we’re tired of this and this isn’t our team. So we’re going to practice hard and we’re going to play hard.’ So we did. We played like we practiced this week and it really paid off.”
