Bird Poop: Buteo regalis, up, up and away

February 8, 2011

Soaring in the emptiness of a winter sky, it had been seen for weeks. Spotted atop a weathered telephone pole, the large bird had been watched by a game warden as it searched the ground for any movement. Having seen it lift its prey as it flew away one afternoon, the officer was grateful to have shared a brief moment with such a magnificent being.

“Robert Lee,” said the male voice when I asked again for a location through the static of his call. “Who?” I asked. “Not who, but where,” he jokingly replied.

Young, Adams send Steers past Lions; Lady Steers fall, but still in hunt for playoff spot

February 8, 2011

Big Spring boys
Brownwood sent the wrong player to the line with 3.2 seconds left.
The Lions were clinging to a 49-48 lead when Luke Adams was fouled and sent to the charity stripe and at that point, it was just a matter of playing defense for three more seconds.

“I knew they were going in,” Adams said of the late free throws. “Without my teammates, it wouldn’t have been possible.”

Those two free throws did go in as Big Spring edged the Lions for a thrilling 50-49 win and Adams is right. The Steers wouldn’t have been in position to win if it weren’t for Dayvion Young’s late heroics.
