If the Big Spring Lady Steers ever get over their unfortunate tendency to give away runs, they could become a force in District 5-3A.
For the second game in a row, the Lady Steers dug themselves a hole too deep to climb out of, allowing six unearned runs in the first inning en route to dropping a 10-8 decision to Abilene Wylie in district softball action at the Big Spring ISD softball complex Tuesday.
The word for the day was â€ścold.â€ť
When an early spring norther blows through town, there's no colder place to watch baseball than Steer Park, and such was the case Tuesday. Temperatures in the 40s â€” and wind chills even lower than that â€” had fans scurrying for coats, blankets and hot chocolate.
Golf â€” Coahoma and Forsan at Coahoma HS Invitational, Comanche Trail Golf Course, Big Spring.

Howard County commissioners gave a rather tentative nod Monday morning to move forward with a proposed joint law enforcement center that would house the sheriff's office and city police department, although several members admitted having reservations concerning the coming year's budget.
