Deputies and dispatchers with the Howard County Sheriff's Office will be doing their part to brighten the holiday season for children in the Crossroads area, as they kick off a toy drive to benefit the local Salvation Army's Angel Tree.
Jessica Olivas, a dispatcher with the HCSO, said she and fellow dispatcher Jennifer Bakley came up with the idea to do the toy drive to not only help needy children, but to try to erase a nasty stereotype within the community.
Officials with the Big Spring Fire Department say the fire reported at the Fourth Street Dairy Queen late Tuesday night was set to cover up a burglary at the local restaurant.
Big Spring Fire Marshall Carl Condray said the fire, which was reported just after 11 p.m., has been ruled arson, an apparent attempt by the thief to cover his or her tracks.
The library closed at 3 p.m. today for the Thanksgiving holidays. We will re-open Monday at 10 a.m. Remember that you can drop off DVDs and CD (books, too) at the book drop located at the entrance. This is also the last column until we start purchasing new materials. Look for my return in late January!
Crossroads residents looking to fill their Thanksgiving quotas of turkey and dressing won't have to wait long, as the Big Spring Salvation Army hosts its annual holiday meal Thursday.
While prep work for the meal actually began Tuesday â€” with the breadth of the work expected to be completed this afternoon â€” the dinner won't be ready until Thursday morning, according to Salvation Army Capt. Terri Cheshire, when Salvation Army staff and a slew of volunteers lay out the turkey and trimmings.
