School days prompt change in aquatic center hours

August 19, 2011

Summertime is almost over, but that doesn't mean fun at the pool has to stop entirely.

The Big Spring Family Aquatic Center will be changing hours of operation, but won't be closing just yet. After this weekend, the aquatic center will be closed during the week and open only on weekends. New hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September, according to Terri Telchick, assistant city manager secretary.

“We are looking forward to keeping this successful summer going,” Telchick said. “We want to have summer last as long as possible.”

Hard-hitting Coahoma leaves impression

August 19, 2011

The Coahoma Bulldogs seemed to get off to a slow start in Thursday night’s scrimmage against Clyde. Understandable, considering the size of the visiting team.

Even Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner commented on the size of the opposition.

“When we walked out, it looked like the field was slanted to one side,” Coach Gardner said.

But the size factor did not stay in play long as the hometown Bulldogs kept playing their own style of football; they hit everybody and they hit them hard.
