Former resident gets 15-year term in federal prison

July 18, 2013

A former Big Spring resident was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison — to be followed by eight years probation — by a U.S. District Judge this week after pleading guilty to receiving child pornography in March.

Christopher Aubrey Harlan, 27, formerly of Big Spring and believed most recently to have been residing in Central Texas, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings after pleading guilty to one count of receiving child pornography, according to officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Northern District of Texas.

Rains of little help to CRMWD reservoirs

July 18, 2013

Rains this week were good for farmers, gardeners and almost everyone else seeking a break from drought-like conditions. For the Colorado River Municipal Water District, however, the precipitation was of only modest benefit.

Parts of the Crossroads area have received more than 2 inches of rain since the start of the week, thanks to a low-pressure front that brought with it plenty of Gulf moisture. And while the slow, soaking rains were almost ideal for agriculture producers and will help green up area lawns, they didn't add much to CRMWD reservoirs.
