Saddle up! Rodeo's coming

June 7, 2011

It's time to cowboy up.

The 78th Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo is back for three nights — June 16,17 and 18 — at the Big Spring Rodeo grounds.

“We are trying something new this year,” Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo board member Derek Wash said. “With the hot temperatures especially, we thought we would cut out the parade and do a Rodeo Kick Off instead.”

Focusing on the children

June 7, 2011

Knowing how to anticipate, prevent and manage certain situations can go a long way to raising a well-rounded child.

Mike Foster, trainer for a World for Children, had a training session Friday morning for area foster families. The three-hour session focused on trauma informed prevention.

“These kids need highly skilled caregivers and we are here to help people get the knowledge base,” Foster said. “Investment parenting is a big key. These kids have to know you have something invested in it as well.”
