Second oilfield accident takes one more life

June 21, 2013

A Big Spring man was killed Thursday morning in an accident in northern Howard County at an oilfield yard near the intersection of U.S. Highway 87 and FM 2230, the second oilfield-related fatality in Howard County in approximately 24 hours.

Juan Manual Estrada-Duarte, 59, of Big Spring was pronounced dead at Scenic Mountain Medical Center shortly after the accident, which was reported at 10:33 a.m.

Estrada-Duarte was pronounced dead by Precinct 1 Place 1 Justice of the Peace Bennie Green, according to Sheriff Stan Parker.

BSISD trustees deliver lukewarm evaluation of Saldivar

June 21, 2013

Big Spring Independent School District trustees have given Superintendent Steven Saldivar less than a ringing vote of confidence.

Following a lengthy evaluation session behind closed doors Thursday, trustees announced they had given Saldivar a job rating of “proficient” and declined to extend his salary beyond the 2013-2014 school year.

The moves were unusual in two areas — a “proficient” rating falls in the middle range of evaluations the board could have levied; and school boards traditionally add at least one year to a superintendent's contract at the end of such evaluations.
