Big Spring girlsâ€™ basketball coach Mike Warren believes No.18 Abilene Wylie is due for an upset.
Of course, he was hoping his team would be the one to dish it out when Big Spring faced the Lady Bulldogs on the road to open District 5-3A.
Things didnâ€™t work out so well for them thanks to Peyton Little and company, but the second meeting between the two teams at 6 p.m. today in Steer Gym may be the best chance to score that upset.
A bad shooting night didnâ€™t stop Howard College from stealing a win on the road at Western Texas College Monday. But nights like those canâ€™t happen against teams like Odessa.
The Lady Wranglers got easy buckets and Howard couldnâ€™t answer back on a consistent basis in Thursdayâ€™s 60-45 loss.
Odessa had three players in double figures. Kiaherra Powell was hard to stop in the paint with 15 and Takoia Larry and Clarissa Davis had 14 apiece.
Time is quickly running out for are residents who haven't paid their 2010 property taxes, with Monday being the last day to ante up before accruing penalties and interest.
Area property owners have until 5 p.m. Monday to pay their property taxes or have their payment post marked, according to County Tax Assessor Kathy Sayles.
Think you are the only one with problems? Guess what? You're not.
That was the message nationally-known motivational speaker Lisa Smartt relayed at the Healthy Woman second anniversary celebration held Thursday night at the Dora Robert Community Center.
A bit of the U.S. Air Force's past and future intersected at Hangar 25 Air Museum Thursday afternoon.
The museum, which commemorates the history of the Army Air Force Bombardier School and Webb Air Force Base in Big Spring, played host to a large group of cadets who participate in the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Course program at Midland High School.
The Junior ROTC students visited the museum to learn more about Air Force history in general and Webb Air Force Base history in particular.
The forecast for Saturday’s Ninth Annual Children-In-Need Chili Cook-off is warm and sunny — a departure some year’s parka-wearing temperatures.
But it still will be chilly enough to appreciate the taste of spicy and not-so-spicy chili created by some of the region’s most flavorful chili cooks. West Texas Centers and the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 3188 will team up once again Saturday to raise money for West Texas Centers Children-In-Need fund.
