As expected, Big Spring City Manager Gary Fuqua is slated to announce new restrictions to ongoing municipal water restrictions Tuesday, part of the city's efforts to comply with cuts in water deliveries from the Colorado River Municipal Water District.
Fuqua warned the council approximately two weeks ago the new restrictions â€” which will take the city from a schedule that allows for outside water use twice a week to a single two-hour period â€” were on their way.

Big Spring Softball Coach John Sparks knew Brownwood would be a tough District 5-3A opponent, and he was proven right as Big Spring was on the short end of an 8-3 decision at the Big Spring ISD Softball Complex Friday.
Things got out of hand quickly for BSHS â€” Brownwood came out swinging, putting up five runs in the top of the first.
Errors â€” seven to be exact â€” derailed the Lady Steers.
Sparks said those miscues were the major reason the Lady Steers dropped to a 1-2 district record.
One round, two round, three rounds â€¦ play!

The Big Spring Steers did a good job matching Brownwood defensively in their District 5-
3A baseball matchup at Steer Park Friday.
Unfortunately for Big Spring, the Lions' offense was more effective on this night as Brownwood took a 5-2 victory.
Brownwood jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but Big Spring answered back with two runs of its own in the bottom of the second.
