November 11, 2014

It’s official.

The Big Spring reliever route will be known forever more as the William B. (Bill) Crooker Truck Relief Route — at least if Howard County commissioners have their way.

November 11, 2014

Keep Big Spring Beautiful and the city of Big Spring are sponsoring a weekend of e-waste collection which is open to anyone — individuals, schools, organizations, businesses — anyone.

Ballot discrepancy was clerical error, Bloom says

November 6, 2014

A clerical error is being blamed for a discrepancy of more than 200 votes in initial general election results Tuesday night in Howard County.

Release of Tuesday’s election results were delayed more than two hours because Election Administrator Saundra Bloom could not jibe overall totals with reports from individual precincts, resulting in a 208-vote discrepancy between the two tallies. Unable to resolve the problem, Bloom eventually released the possibly incomplete figures shortly after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
