The Weekend That Was

Staff Writer

In case you missed it, here were some of the stories covered in Sunday's Herald:

• City officials begin negotiations to end a law suit brought against former firefighter Fabian Butler, who was “indefinitely suspended from the local fire department last April. If a settlement is ultimately reached, it will end a legal tug-of-war between Butler and the city that began with an incident at the Big Spring Federal Correctional Institute last February.

• A Sands Springs family lost their home and three pets in a structure fire on Friday morning. According to Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan, no persons were injured in a structure fire located in the 100 block of Collins Road which was reported to the HCVFD. The house is a complete loss, Sullivan stated, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

• After one quarter of action it seemed as though fans would witness an offensive showcase Friday night in Seminole, Texas. Unfortunately only one of the two teams delivered. The Big Spring boys basketball team lost 63-42 to the Indians of Seminole High School in one of their final non-conference games of the season.
