Dr. Steven Saldivar, superintendent of Big Spring public schools, announced during Thursday's school board meeting he will resign by the end of the coming school year.
Saldivar, who has led Big Spring Independent School District since 2008, said the timing was right for his announcement.
The Big Spring Senior Citizens Center has a shiny new dance floor, and officials there are eager to show it off to the public.
The center will hold a â€śgrand re-openingâ€ť dance to celebrate the new floor Friday, Aug. 9, from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.. The dance, featuring live country-western music, is free to the public and refreshments will be served, Director MaryJo Toomire said.
A portion of the roof over the dance area collapsed under the weight of heavy snow 17 months ago, resulting in major damage to the floor, Toomire noted.
Longtime Big Spring State Hospital Superintendent Ed Moughon has announced his retirement after serving at the facility in various capacities for 25 years.
Moughon, 64, will step down at the end of the month. He has played an integral role in not only keeping the hospital in Big Spring, but turning it into a model facility.
