Halloween sex offender roundup on tap

October 26, 2011

Registered sex offenders currently on probation won't have the chance to go trick-or-treating Monday, as officials with the District Adult Probation get ready to once again hold mandatory meetings during the holiday evening.

Kent Minchew, director of adult probation for the district, said sex offenders from Howard, Martin and Glasscock counties will gather for a probation meeting at the Adult Probation Office — located in the county courthouse annex — during traditional trick-or-treat hours from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Monday.

City re-affirms in-transit taxing stance

October 26, 2011

The Big Spring City Council pledged its intent to continue to tax inventories considered to be in transit during its meeting Tuesday night, reaffirming the similar decision made by the council in 2007.

According to state officials, the Texas legislature recently amended the goods-in-transit tax law to require taxing entities to decide whether or not they want to offer the exemption. Now, a taxing entity must decide whether to allow goods in transit to be taxed or not.
