Big Spring ISD eyeing budget

April 16, 2012

Big Spring Independent School District officials are already thinking about their next budget, but few of those thoughts are pleasant.

Continued cuts in state revenue have educators across the state scrambling to balance educational needs with decreased funds, and Big Spring ISD is no exception.

When Texas legislatures crafted the state's biennial budget in 2010, they cut more than $5 billion from education expenditures. That meant local school districts would have to make do with less — in Big Spring's case, about $3 million less — over a two-year period.

HC dance troupe to take stage

April 16, 2012

Time may have sprung forward recently, but the Howard College Dance Department is taking things back with its spring concert Thursday and Friday. Students will take to the stage of the Hall Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. to perform “Movin' with the Movies.”

“There is a lot of history in this show,” Eulaine McIntosh, Howard College dance instructor, said. “You start seeing a lot of connection to the future when you start researching.”
