August 31, 2012

MIDLAND — Howard County rivals Forsan and Coahoma met Thursday at the ASCO Football Madness opener at Grande Communications Stadium, in what was the first football game played in the state for the 2012 season.

The Buffaloes and Bulldogs battled through early afternoon heat, cramps and dehydration issues, and a scoreboard that failed during the first quarter, leaving both teams coaches to manage the time without an official time clock.

When the smoke cleared, Forsan was the victor, narrowly defeating Coahoma — who won least year's meeting by a point — 30-27.

DPS to be out in force Labor Day weekend

August 31, 2012

It's never a good idea to drink and drive, but law enforcement officials say it will be particularly foolish this weekend.

As it has in past years, the Texas Department of Public Safety will increase DWI patrols during the Labor Day holiday weekend, officials said. DPS troopers will focus DWI patrols in high-risk locations at times when alcohol-related crashes are most frequent.

During the Labor Day enforcement effort last year, DPS troopers made more than 2,000 DWI arrests and approximately 550 of those were the direct result of the increased patrols, officials said.
