Big Spring Independent School District board members were told Thursday the effort to achieve the designation of becoming an early college high school is well on its way.
One of the main issues discussed Thursday night was in regards to Big Spring ISD possibly being designated as an early college high school. If the school receives the designation, courses following the program will begin next semester.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ ERICK DAVE HERNANDEZ, 32, of 1502 Bluebird, was arrested Thursday on a charge of driving while intoxicated â€“ blood alcohol level more than 0.15.
â€˘ FELICIA ALDRIDGE, 25, of 3304 W. Highway 80 Apt. 37, was arrested Thursday on a warrant from another agency.
â€˘ TRISTAN MARCEL WARD, 20, of 2628 Dow, was arrested Thursday on warrants for failure to appear (four counts), no driver's license â€“ when unlicensed and disregarding a stop sign.
While county officials have given the go-ahead to lift the burn ban that has been in effect for more than a year-and-a-half, municipal officials warn city residents to be reticent of local ordinances before burning any materials within the city limits.
Big Spring Fire Marshal Carl Condray said the lifting of the ban — which Howard County Judge Mark Barr made official Monday during a meeting of the commissioners court — could cause some confusion among city residents.
