Sea containers being converted to housing units

October 19, 2012

With oil production booming in the Permian Basin region, the influx of workers has created a housing shortage in Big Spring and surrounding areas.

One local company, Big A Properties, has found a creative way to ease the burden.

Shipping crates — just like the ones you see on giant cargo ships and on the backs of 18-wheel trucks on the highway — are being converted into living quarters in nearby San Angelo to be rented or sold here in Big
Spring.

Volunteers needed: Boys and Girls Club looking for helping hands

October 18, 2012

The club, which opened this summer, is the newest and one of the biggest clubs of its kind in Texas. Within its walls, there are rooms for dance and music lessons, video games and other activities designed for local children.

But most of those rooms are darkened and unused right now for a very important reason — there aren't any volunteers to man them.
