Thursday is Dollar Night at rodeo

June 15, 2011

Great things often happen during the Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo.

This year, the volunteers who produce the annual event have designated opening night as a way to give back — to the fans who make the rodeo a success and to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, an endowment that offers financial assistance for contestants sidelined due to injury.

Board to discuss budget cycle

June 15, 2011

Cuts in state financing may not be as bad as Big Spring Independent School District officials initially feared, but will still be significant.

BSISD trustees will discuss the coming budget cycle when they hold their regular monthly meeting at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in the high school board room.

Texas legislators will likely cut $4 billion in aid to school districts when they approve a two-year state budget in the coming weeks.

If that figure holds, BSISD will lose $3 million in state aid for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 budget cycles.
