Tours de jour: RSVP showcase slated next week

December 30, 2010

Big Spring's Retired Senior Volunteer Program is giving people plenty of chances to get away from it all in the coming year.

RSVP's annual Travel Showcase, which offers a wide variety of tours, vacations and getaways to area residents, will be held at 2 p.m. next Thursday at the Dora Roberts Community Center.

The Travel Showcase is open to everyone, not just seniors, said Becky Letz of RSVP. “The more the merrier,” Letz said. “We've had seniors on these tours, we've had children … everyone is welcome.”

Stay warm, but wary

December 30, 2010

With low temperatures expected to dip below freezing by the weekend, many area residents will be looking for some extra warmth, a search local fire officials say can turn deadly if precautions aren’t taken.

Big Spring Fire Marshal Carl Condray said there are many different types of secondary heating, ranging from portable electric units to wood-burning stoves, but the most common causes of fires involving them are avoidable.

Thompson believes Steers turning corner

December 30, 2010

After going 3-1 in the Fredricksburg tournament, Big Spring boys basketball coach Cliff Thompson believes he’s watching his team learn from the mistakes it made at the beginning of the season.

That’s good news, too, considering district play is about two weeks away.

“The first part of the season was up and down, but we’re kind of on a roll now,” Thompson said. “I think we’ve been improving all year.”

The Steers took care of Randolph 62-32, lost to St. Andrews 61-56, beat Rouse 65-55 and defeated Ingram 68-39 in the Fredricksburg tournament to move to 13-6 on the season.

With the Six-Man Division I District 7 football honors being released, Coulnga was named Offensive MVP and Chudej, who regularly made plays at linebacker, was named the district's Defensive MVP.

The Bearkats had 13 players earn honors. Chudej, Reggie Halfmann, Ruben Mier and Brian Hirt earned multiple honors.
