Local Law enforcement officials say they managed to clear more than 550 warrants and collect more than $100,000 in fines during this year's statewide warrant roundup, which ended in late February.
Municipal Judge Timothy Green said his office â€” working in conjunction with the Big Spring Police Department and the Howard County Sheriff's Office â€” participated in the annual event in an effort to help clear longstanding warrants from the city and county roles.
The Kiwanis Club of Big Spring will host its annual pancake supper from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Howard College Cafeteria.
â€śThis is a long-standing tradition. We have people who remember having their grandparents take them and they have taken their children and grandchildren,â€ť pancake supper co-chair Ann Duncan said.
Money raised during the eventwill be used throughout the year by the local Kiwanis group to help fund its service projects. The projects involve the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club and the Westside Community Daycare Center.
