Forsan Buffaloes â€” Bye week
Stanton Buffaloes vs. Idalou Wildcats
7:30 p.m. at Stanton
The 2-3 Stanton Buffaloes will play host to the 3-1 Idalou Wildcats this Friday night in their district home-opener. Last week, the Buffaloes had a win snatched out of their hands in the final seconds by the Coahoma Bulldogs and are now looking to get their first district win.
In order to get it done, they have to get past a Wildcats squad playing their first district game. Idalou had a bye last week and should be pretty well rested from their 38-0 win in Roosevelt Sept. 16.
The Big Spring Steers hope their homecoming celebrations will include marking one down in the win column this week, as they play host to the Greenwood Rangers at Memorial Stadium Friday night. The game will start at 7:30 p.m.
The 0-5 Steers have shown remarkable improvement on defense over the last few weeks, but the offense â€” plagued by injuries â€” has sputtered, with last week's nine points coming in just above their season average of 8.2.

As the Big Spring Police Department and Howard County Sheriff's Office move toward more consolidated services, several changes are on the horizon.
The most obvious sign of change, however, just may be a locked door.

The Big Spring Lady Steers remained undefeated in district play, defeating Snyder in Steer Gym in three identical 25-14 matches.
Despite dropping from number nine to nineteen in the the latest Texas coaches poll, the Lady Steers remain a tough challenge for any opponent and their play continues to improve from week to week.
Brenda Tingley, 66, of Big Spring died Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011, at her residence. Her services are pending with Nalley-Pickle & Welch Funeral Home & Crematory of Big Spring.
Federal agents from San Angelo — assisted by local law enforcement — executed a search warrant today during the early morning hours in Coahoma as part of a child pornography investigation.
According to Howard County Sheriff Stan Parker, the search warrant was executed at approximately 6:30 a.m. at a residence.
Officials with the sheriff’s office assisted investigators with the San Angelo ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) department.
It was one of those things that just couldn’t wait.
Big Spring Independent School District trustees held a five-minute special meeting Monday to grant a utility easement at the sites where four new elementary campuses are being constructed.
The easement with ONCOR, the local electricity provider, will allow the company to move power lines out of the way so that construction of the new schools can proceed on schedule.
