Howard County commissioners gave their proposed precinct boundaries a thumbs up Monday morning, with the proposed redistricting design expected to be presented to the U.S. Justice Department for final approval.

Everyone enjoys receiving a gift at Christmas, especially those fighting for our country.
Christmas for OUR Troops — a program started in 2004 — is aimed at making sure troops receive packages during the Christmas season.
Debbie Burrow, Big Spring area coordinator for Christmas for OUR Troops, said the goal for this year is 2,500 boxes. In 2004, five boxes were packaged and shipped after Scott Davis and USAF Captain Steven Givler became friends and sprouted the idea.
