Memorial Stadium is getting a major facelift.
During their Thursday night meeting, Big Spring Independent School District trustees voted to set aside $825,000 in reserve funds to purchase and install artificial turf for the stadium.
But a new playing field is only the first of several upgrades planned for the 60-year-old stadium. In the near future, school district officials plan to replace the stadium's restrooms and concession stands and significantly upgrade its field house and press boxes.
A Big Spring woman, arrested and charged with the Tuesday morning aggravated robbery of a 7-Eleven, is still in custody and has been charged with other crimes, according to Big Spring police.
As of this morning, Deborah Kay Cantu, 46, of 419 Dallas Apt. B, remained in the custody of the Howard County Detention Center. Bond has been set at $75,000 for the aggravated robbery and $2,000 each for two counts of burglary of a vehicle.
