When little Celestina Vela decided to spread some Christmas cheer, she didn't mess around.
Celestina, a 6-year-old first-grader at Bauer Elementary, was so moved by the plight of soldiers who will have to spend Christmas away from home that she decided to do something to cheer them up.
So she sent them Christmas cards â€” lots and lots of Christmas cards.
Over the course of a few weeks, Celestina and her family collected more than 1,000 holiday greeting cards to send to U.S. military personnel serving overseas.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ JONATHAN MICHAELS SHORTEN, 24, of Houston, was arrested Wednesday on a warrant from another agency and a warrant for hindering officers discharging official duties.
â€˘ CLARISSA DEAN, 32, of 2609 Wasson Rd. Apt. 2, was arrested Wednesday on six warrants from other agencies.
â€˘ JESSEE CASTUITO DELEON JR., 43, of 1705 Highway 176, was arrested Wednesday on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
