Local law enforcement officials are warning area merchants to be on the lookout for counterfeit $20 bills circulating in the Crossroads area which have been treated with a chemical allowing them to at least partially defeat detection markers.

Bowls were filled and a purposed was served during the Empty Bowls — Five Golden Bowls event at First Christian Church Thursday afternoon.

Empty Bowls â€”Five Golden Bowls â€” is right around the corner, but there is still time to purchase a ticket.
Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at First Christian Church â€” located at 911 Goliad â€” 150 people will have the opportunity to not only support the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County, but also to enjoy homemade soups and take home a one-of-a-kind bowl.
â€śThis is a great way for the community to show their support for the United Way and at the same time it draws attention to a problem that exists all over the world,â€ť executive director Sandy Stewart said.
And his impact continues â€¦
Skipper Driver, a major supporter of the Howard County Fair and Relay for Life passed away earlier this year after a long fight with cancer, but by no means has he stopped making a contribution on the community he loved so much.
In honor of Driver, the Howard County Fair Board decided to donate $1 from every ticket sold at the 2011 fair to the local Relay For Life campaign. Tuesday afternoon, members of the fair board, along with Driver's wife Wanda, presented the $4,175 check to members of the Relay For Life committee.
