FORSAN — School district officials are planning for a leaner future, financially speaking.
With Texas facing a multi-billion dollar shortfall, it stands to reason that schools will have to make do with less state aid for the next few years, and Forsan Independent School District officials are already taking steps to prepare for that eventuality.
Two Big Spring High School Speech and Debate team members qualified for the National Forensic League National Tournament, June 13-18 in Dallas.
Senior Jessica Rubio qualified in Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking and Shermila Kher qualified in Lincoln-Douglas Debate.
For Rubio, this will be her third year in a row to attend the national tournament.
“I’m really excited about going to Nationals again.” she said “Meeting and competing against people from around the country and the world is an awesome experience.”
Christmas comes but once a year, however, Christmas cards sometimes show up a few years and a couple months late.
Big Spring resident Mami Lee Dodds received an unexpected gift two days after Valentine's Day — a Christmas card from her late brother Brady.
“I recognized the handwriting before I ever opened it,” Dodds said. “I knew that it was from Brady. I figured it was something he had done before he passed away.”
Brady died eight years ago.

â€˘ RYAN WAYNE NORMAN, 19, of 2902 Parkway, was arrested Thursday on a charge of public intoxication.
