FORSAN â€” School officials here will soon take the first step in what will be more than a year-long process of evaluating the state of school facilities.
During their monthly meeting Monday evening, Forsan Independent School District trustees discussed commissioning a facilities study within the next few months to assess the need for modernizing campus buildings.
For the second time in less than five years, the historic totem pole at Comanche Trail Park has come under attack by vandals.
According to officials with the city of Big Spring, damage to the local landmark was discovered Monday.
â€śThe pole was intact Saturday morning, so it had to be done some time between Saturday night and Monday morning,â€ť said Kenny Davis, municipal landfill director.
â€śIt appears to have been done by either a kid or a small man or teen using a hatchet, not an axe. I'm fairly sure if they had used an axe they would have brought the entire totem pole down.â€ť
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Tuesday:
â€˘ ERNEST WILLIAM CLARK, 71, transient, was arrested Monday on charges of criminal trespass/property/building/aircraft/vehicle and public intoxication with three prior convictions.
â€˘ PATRICK ALLEN GLENN,50, of 914 E. Sixth Street, was arrested Monday on a charge of public intoxication.
â€˘ GINA GAINES GIBSON, 39, of 600 W. I-20 115, was arrested Monday on a warrant from other agency.
