Time is running out for area residents to order their shirts for the biannual Howard County Day at the Capitol, which is slated for early February.
Friday is the last day to order one of the black, button-up shirts emblazoned with the Howard County logo, according to Teresa Darden, Big Spring Economic Development Corporation executive assistant.
Officials with the Big Spring Area Salvation Army say this year's winter coat and heater drive are going well, however, with temperatures expected to drop dramatically in the coming weeks, the demand is anticipated to exceed supply.
According to Patsy Heckler, office manager for the local charity, there are a few space heaters currently in stock.
â€śWe have approximately two to three space heaters available right now,â€ť Heckler said. â€śIt's always hard to say how long they will last and with the coming cold snap, I expect they will go pretty quickly.â€ť
