The Crossroads area looks to offer a heartfelt thanks to local veterans today and this weekend with a number of ceremonies and offerings.
This morning, the Big Spring VA Medical Center was slated to present its Community-Wide Veterans Day Program at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum, which included a luncheon following the presentation.
It's doubtful anyone is more anxious for Big Spring Independent School District to emerge from the cloud of its â€śacademically unacceptableâ€ť rating than school officials themselves.
BSISD earned that odious rating in the last round of Texas Education Agency ratings two years ago and school officials are eager to rid the district of the tag.
â€śNo one likes to be considered unacceptable, and we're going to do everything we can to get out from under that,â€ť Superintendent Steven Saldivar told school trustees during their monthly meeting Thursday night.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ OSCAR ORTIZ, 23, of 1302 Madison, was arrested Thursday on charges of possession of marijuana â€“ two ounces or less, possession of a controlled substance, driving while license invalid and failure to appear.
â€˘ CASMIRA VEGA, 20, of 1302 Madison, was arrested Thursday on charges of possession of marijuana â€“ two ounces or less and possession of a controlled substance.
