Big Spring Independent School District is finding other ways to make budget cuts without going to the employee chopping block.
Thursday, BSISD trustees approved contracts through the 2011-2012 for all professional employees.
“A lot of hard work went into making this possible,” Superintendent Steven Saldivar said following the meeting, which lasted only about a half-hour.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. today:
â€¢ MARK WILLIAM EDWARDS, 53, of 806 E. 16th St., was arrested Thursday on a warrant from another agency.
â€¢ TONY DELAGARZA, 46, of 11002 E. 16th St., was arrested Thursday on a charge of public intoxication.
â€¢ MATTHEW ELISEO DELAGARZA, 19, of 1608 Young, was arrested Wednesday on a warrant for speeding in a school zone.
â€¢ VERONICA MARIE ORTIZ, 28, of 800 W. Marcy Apt. 10, was arrested Thursday on a warrant for no safety belt.
Time is running out for Big Spring residents to register to vote in the May 14 municipal election, as the April 14 deadline is less than a week away.
With early voting set to begin May 2 and run through May 10, Howard County Elections Administrator Saundra Bloom said she and her team of election judges are gearing up for the political contests.
