Funny money passers nabbed

May 4, 2012

Officials with the Big Spring Police Department say Wednesday's arrest of a pair of alleged counterfeiters could be tied to recent reports of fake bills in other Permian Basin cities, however, it's too early in the investigation to know for sure.

James Anthony Griego, 17, was arrested Wednesday and booked into the county detention center Thursday by the BSPD on a charge of forgery of a government instrument after police officials say he and a juvenile suspect tried to pass counterfeit $100 bills at the Wal-Mart SuperCenter.

May 3, 2012

Dotty for dachsunds? Psyched about shih tzus? Wowed by Welsh corgis?

Hundreds of this region's best show dogs will put their best paws forward this weekend at the Big Spring Kennel Club's annual Dog Show, set for Saturday and Sunday at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

The 42nd annual show opens at 8 a.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Admission is free.

Betty Kelley, one of the event's organizers, said high gasoline prices will probably hold down entries, but added that she still expects more than 400 dogs, some from as far away as Arizona, to participate this weekend.

Early voting off to slow start

May 3, 2012

Howard County Elections Administrator Saundra Bloom says early voting has gotten off to a slow start in the May 12 municipal election, a surprising fact considering what's at stake in this year's municipal election.

By the way, polls will be open until 7 this evening at the county courthouse.

“We opened up Monday with approximately 150 votes,” Bloom said. “Tuesday we had about 126 ballots, which was much slower than what we were expecting. Wednesday was around the same neighborhood. I'm not sure why things are moving so slowly.”

Community call to prayer Thursday

May 2, 2012

Prayers will be sent from the third floor of the Howard County Courthouse on Thursday.

A community call to prayer has been organized for 12:10 p.m.

“We don't need our pastors to organize this,” Justice of the Peace Kathryn Wiseman said. “This needs to come from the people.”

The scripture being used in support of the call to prayer is 2 Chronicles 7:13-15; “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
