With doors at the Hog Heaven Party Barn — located on W. Highway 80 — set to open Saturday at 7 p.m., Goondock Saints founder Clay “Goonie” Vickers said the show will offer those attending a chance to relax and enjoy some big-city humor.

A horse of many colors is what the Big Spring Family Aquatic Center has turned out to be.
During the summer, families were able to enjoy swim time and now the pool has closed, the city is still putting it to use. Big Spring Fire Department recently held rapid water rescue training at the facility.
“We try to do these trainings as often as possible, but lately we haven’t really had a suitable facility and now that we do, we are putting it to use,” Lt. Craig Ferguson said.

Members of the Big Spring City Council approved a resolution adopting new redistricting boundaries for its six districts on a unanimous vote Tuesday, giving the go-ahead to send the plan to the U.S. Department of Justice.
The plan — one of four the council had to choose from — decreases the amount of deviation allowed by the Voting Rights Act from the current 25.28 percent to 4.4 percent, bringing the district plan to well below the 10 percent maximum established by federal law.
