Operation Christmas Child donation deadline Sunday

November 22, 2014

Donations for Operation Christmas Child continue to flow in but the deadline to send a gift-laden shoe box to children across the world is quickly approaching.

“(Donations) are pouring in right now,” said Allan Johnson of Allan’s Furniture, the local collection point for Operation Christmas Child located at 202 Scurry. “We are right at 700 boxes now and our big donations haven’t come in. We have several churches that bring in 500 boxes or more, so I think we are going to bust our 2,000 donations from last year.”

November 20, 2014

Although the homeless shelter still remains closed, the Big Spring Salvation Army continues to find sanctuary for people when the need arises.

Finances, employee and building maintenance issues all contributed to the decision to close the shelter a year ago, said Capt. Jeremiah Romack of the Big Spring Salvation Army, but officials are still helping people find shelter on a case by case basis.

“We are still finding shelter for people but in a non-traditional means,” Romack said.

Rezoning requests for two apartments get OK, third doesn’t

November 19, 2014

Developers wishing to build apartment complexes went two-for-three at Tuesday’s Big Spring City Council meeting.

The failed rezoning bid would have resulted in a 32-unit apartment building on a square block bordered by Father Delaney, Douglas, Aylesford and Seventh streets in north Big Spring. The long-abandoned Kate Morrison elementary school building currently sits at the site.
