Big Spring hoops squads no match for ranked Wylie

January 30, 2013

Big Spring

Girls

It took the Lady Steers (16-14, 4-4) over five minutes to score during Tuesday's meeting with No. 17 Abilene Wylie. Meanwhile, the Lady Bulldogs seemed as if they couldn't miss a shot, outscoring Big Spring 32-5 in the first half.

With about four minutes remaining before halftime, a fire alarm was tripped, halting the action for about 10 minutes. It was just a false alarm, but unfortunately for Big Spring it didn't interrupt Wylie's rhythm. The Lady Bulldogs went home with their perfect District 4-3A record intact after a 60-24 blowout win.

Mayor Duncan won't seek second term

January 29, 2013

Big Spring Mayor Tommy Duncan announced this morning he will not seek a second term in office.

Duncan cited personal reasons for why he will not stand for re-election.

“When I ran for office, I was really reluctant to do so, but I was contacted by several people to step forward and serve the community, and that's what I did,” Duncan said. “I never intended to serve more than one term.”

Duncan, who defeated incumbent mayor Russ McEwen in the 2010 municipal elections, cited three milestones as his major contributions to the community during his term in office.
