When Savannah Neff went on her coach's Facebook page and read of the grief and concern being poured out from someone she respected and appreciated, she knew something had to be done to help. The Coahoma High School sophomore came up with an idea. After talking with Coach Mitzi Bell to get permission, the Bulldogette basketball player and her teammates are organizing a donation drive to help the families whose lives have been uprooted by the current fires in Bastrop.
Ten years and counting, but not forgotten.
September 11, 2001, is a day that was marked as one that would live in infamy, and it has. No one has forgotten where they were when terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and how that act forever changed lives.
The remembrance ceremonies may not be what they once were, but they still exist, especially in Big Spring. The Big Spring Mall will be the location for a 2 p.m. memorial service Sunday.
