When talking about the Big Spring Herald, one name always comes to the forefront — Joe Pickle.

For more than four decades, Pickle was a fixture at the Herald, retiring as the paper’s editor in 1975, but his legacy in the community goes far beyond his work in journalism.

The museum will dedicate a plaque in memory of Pickle at 10 a.m. Saturday.

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.
