Big Spring Independent School District officials still have some construction bonds to sell. How they will sell the bonds has become a matter for discussion.
In September, BSISD trustees decided to hold off on selling almost $7 million of the $63 million in construction bonds authorized by voters. The unsold amount, which totaled $6.7 million, was held in abeyance to see if it could qualify under a special federal program which features extra-low interest rates.
A weekend argument escalated into a knife fight that landed two local men in the hospital, then in the Howard County jail.
Police responded Saturday evening to the 800 block of Lorilla in west Big Spring in reference to a disturbance and possible stabbing.
Big Spring Police Sgt. Tony Everett said that when officers arrived on the scene they found two men suffering from injuries caused by â€śedged weapons.â€ť
The two men were identified as Ismael Juarez, 50, and Jason Threats, 32, both of Big Spring.
