Snakes alive! Snake, rattle and roll. For goodness snakes! OK, OK, enough of the bad puns.
It's coming, though, the 48th Big Spring Rattlesnake Roundup, put on by the American Business Club (AMBUCS).
The venue is the Howard County Fair Barns, March 24-25. The snakes will be in the east-most barn, with the entry barn reserved for a free arts and crafts show.
The use of plastic grocery bags could have its days numbered in the city of Big Spring, as the city council is expected to begin discussions on the use â€” and possible elimination â€” of the items.
According to City Manager Gary Fuqua, the council will discuss the matter during its Tuesday night meeting, but no action will take place, at least not at this time.
