Lady Steers tramp Grape Creek, 68-17

December 20, 2014

It probably wouldn’t surprise anyone if the Grape Creek Lady Eagles had decided to purchase Kasey Delafuente a roll of duct tape for an early Christmas gift after the way she played on Friday.

Commissioners to meet Monday

December 20, 2014

Howard County commissioners are expected to decide the final fate of the old show barns at the fairgrounds when they hold their final meeting of the year at 10 a.m. Monday on the third floor of the county courthouse.
Commissioners recently decided to advertise for bids to demolish most of the show barns at the fairgrounds, located adjacent to the Big Spring Rodeo Bowl.
