It's amazing what $60 million can buy.
As Big Spring Independent School District nears the end of construction and renovation related to the $60 million bond approved by voters in 2010, officials say the district definitely got a bang for its bucks.
BSISD trustees learned during their monthly meeting Thursday that not only has the district been able to finish all the construction projects it originally targeted in 2010, there's a bit of money left over for more work.
A major part of avoiding health issues is avoiding potential hazards, and a portion of Saturday's Health Fair will be geared toward just that, officials are saying.
The event, in its 31st year, will be held from 8 a.m. until noon at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum on the Howard College campus. Admission is free. It is staged each year by Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. today:
â€¢ JEREMY GLEN WILLIAMS, 27, of 1 Courtney Place Apt. 706, was arrested Thursday on a charge of driving while license suspended/invalid with a previous conviction.
