42nd annual dog show Saturday and Sunday

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.”

“The works are examples of various assignments given throughout the school year,” said BSHS Art Teacher Judy Tereletsky. “Each student was asked to pick at least one item to display.”

New Stanton hospital opens

May 2, 2012

STANTON — Officials cut the ribbon on Martin County's new $22 million hospital Tuesday.

The new 18-bed Martin County Hospital, which was completed ahead of schedule and under budget, officially opened its doors at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday and initial reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, the hospital's director said.

“Everybody's just raved about it,” said Peter McKinney, CEO of the Martin County Hospital District. “It's the finest facility this county has ever seen.”

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.”

A/C failure forcing library to adjust hours

May 1, 2012

If you doubt the importance of air conditioning in West Texas, just drop by the Howard County Library some afternoon.

The library's air conditioning unit, which operated in fits and starts most of this spring, finally gave up the ghost for good recently, leaving the building a tad on the hot side.

Well, more than a tad, it turns out.

“It's been getting up to 83 or 84 most afternoons, and it'll only get hotter,” County Library Hollis McCright said. “It's gotten so warm that we've not had much business in the afternoon, and after 4 p.m., we're not getting anyone at all.”

Eagles lodge cook-off to benefit children's hospital

May 1, 2012

It's no secret people in the Crossroads — and West Texas, for that matter — are crazy for barbecue, and area cooks will get an opportunity to compete for the title of king of the grill Saturday as the local Eagles Lodge presents BBQ Fest.

The cook-off will feature the best and brightest local grillers and smokers as they go head to head in categories including pork ribs, chicken, brisket and jackpot beans, according to coordinator Paul Moran.
