Finances, employee and building maintenance issues all contributed to the decision to close the shelter a year ago, said Capt. Jeremiah Romack of the Big Spring Salvation Army, but officials are still helping people find shelter on a case by case basis.

“We are still finding shelter for people but in a non-traditional means,” Romack said.

November 19, 2014

Heading into the 2014 high school volleyball season, Big Spring head coach Lynn Osborn said she believed the Lady Steers had the talent to make a serious run at the Class 4A state playoffs. The Lady Steers more than proved their coach right this fall, going 22-20 and advancing to within two games of the state tournament.
In the process, the Lady Steers made believers of every one else in the District 204A race. The proof of that came earlier this week when the coaches released the 2014 all-district selections.
