Carving a niche

October 13, 2011

To you or me, a block of wood is a block of wood — but to one of the Mustang Draw Woodcarver’s Club members, it’s a work of art waiting to happen.
The club will hold its annual Show and Sale beginning Monday at Dora Roberts Community Center. There, you can purchase almost any kind of artwork done in wood. And, if you have the hankering, you can learn a thing or two about the craft yourself.
As part of the annual exhibition, club members will hold classes from Monday to Thursday on various forms of woodcarving, ranging from beginner’s work to more advanced art.

Howard County commissioners gave their proposed precinct boundaries a thumbs up Monday morning, with the proposed redistricting design expected to be presented to the U.S. Justice Department for final approval.

The county was forced to make minor changes to its previous redistricting model due to lines shifted by the city of Big Spring during its most recent meeting on the matter, but the changes proved to be little problem for attorney Robert Bass, who is handling restricting duties for both entities.
