There is still time to get a booth for the 30th annual health fair. The theme this year â€” Pearls of Wisdom of Good Health â€” is aimed at celebrating the past 30 years. Once again, the fair will take place at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum from 8 a.m. until noon April 14.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. today:
â€¢VERONICA HALARIO MARTINEZ, 29, of 1002 N. Main 46, was arrested Tuesday on warrants for fail to appear (two counts), expired registration and failed to maintain financial responsibility.
â€¢ JOHN WILLIAM SALAZAR, 36, of 4215 Calvin St., was arrested Tuesday on warrants for assault by threat, fail to appear, harassment (two counts) and warrant from other agency (three counts).
It appears the city of Big Spring will have to start off its summer watering season a bit on the dry side, as City Manager Gary Fuqua told the council Tuesday night municipal water customers will be asked to cut their water usage even more than this time last year.
Fuqua said the city has received a letter from the Colorado City Municipal Water District laying out its alloted water deliveries for the summer months.
Discussion Tuesday night by the Big Spring City Council on whether or not to ban the use of plastic grocery-type bags in the city limits ended with the panel agreeing the matter warrants more research and â€” most of all â€” a wary eye.
The council's decision to approach the matter comes on the heels of similar bans proposed and instituted in Fort Stockton, South Padre Island, Austin and Pecos, a trend started last year when Brownsville became the first city in Texas to ban the use of plastic bags in nearly all consumer settings.
