United Way Big Push - 12/12/18!


The United Way of Big Spring and Howard County will be having their event The Big Push on Wednesday, December 12th, from 12-4 PM at 215 W. 3rd St. in Big Spring.

 

Christian Fair, Executive Director with the local United Way organization, told KBest News that the event is the end of the year blitz for the 2019 Campaign Season. There will be local volunteers with the United Way helping to collect donations at the corner of 3rd and Gregg St. during that time. Double L BBQ will also be at the event selling food to help raise money for the local organization.

 

Most people may be surprised that the campaign season isn’t as long as one might think, instead, the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County only campaigns from September through December to raise a big portion of their funding.

 

With a turnover in Executive Directors and a Kick-Off event that was canceled twice due to bad weather, the local organization has only met 30 percent of their goal for the 2019 Campaign but Fair says she’s still hopeful that they’ll be able to raise enough funds to distribute to their local agencies.

Captain McKain speaks to CHS students about making positive impacts.


Yesterday, Captain Josh McKain with the Salvation Army of Big Spring stopped by Coahoma High School to speak with their students. During the assembly, Captain McKain told his story of drug addiction and being on the verge of being sentenced to prison when his life was turned around after accepting Jesus while at a treatment facility.

 

He opened up to the high school students about his personal story in hopesthat some would connect with his message, which was, “Don’t let the circumstances of your life define you and shape you.”

 

Captain McKain said the invitation to speak at Coahoma High School came from CISD Superintendent Dr. Amy Jacobs and CHS Principal Cristina Cox after he returned from a recent disaster deployment when Hurricane Florence had hit the Carolinas earlier this year.

Space Heater Safety


The cold weather forecasted for this weekend may prompt some residents to get out their space heaters for extra warmth.

 

Big Spring Fire Marshal Dan Hendrickson noted that portable electric space heaters can be a convenient source of additional heat for your home or office in cold weather, but they can also pose significant fire and electric shock hazards if not used properly.

 

"You gotta make sure that any combustible materials - bedding, clothes, laundry - are at least 3 feet away from a space heater or heater. The other thing that you gotta take into account is that the power cords for these units," said Hendrickson. "That's a lot of energy traveling through that power cord, so you never want to use extension cords or anything like that, but you also want to make sure that you don't have anything lying on top of the cords because air is actually what keeps the power cords cool and keeps them from overheating."

 

He noted that if an extension/electrical cord is covered, it will build up heat and will melt the insulation, causing a structure fire.

Finding their voice: Four CHS students return to State FFA LDE contest


COAHOMA — Micah Worley, Julia Cox, Emilee Custer, and Aubrey Green are becoming quite used to performing at a high level in public speaking contests.

 

The four Coahoma FFA (Future Farmers of America) members are making a return appearance at the Texas FFA LDE (Leadership Development Events) contest set for today and Saturday at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville.

 

Although experience public speakers, they all admitted to feeling a little jittery when it’s time to perform in front of the judges, but a little pep talk from their chapter adviser, Aaron Custer, helps to settle their nerves, Emilee Custer said.

 

“He tells us to do it like we do it at home, so it’s pretty easy for us to take a deep breath and think we’re just at home, we’re just in the ag shop, but it’s still pretty nerve-racking,” she added.

 

Worley, Cox, Custer, and Green are competing as a team in public relations. Cox is competing individually in the senior creed division.

 

For the public relations contest, the team is tasked with creating an informational program about FFA for an audience with no previous knowledge about the program. Following the presentation, they answer questions from the judges.

 

Last year, Worley, Custer, and Green placed 7th in state in radio broadcasting. Cox was the state champion in the junior creed.

 

Over the years, Aaron Custer has watched the four girls grow their public speaking skills through these types of FFA sponsored contests.

 

“The biggest feather in their cap when they graduate here is they all can stand up in front of people and speak when that’s probably the biggest fear any grown-up ever has,” Aaron Custer said. “These kids are getting an advantage upfront because they’re taking these nerves they’ve got now and learning how to face them, how to deal with them.”

 

In addition to honing their public speaking skills, the students have taking what they’ve learned back to the chapter to disseminate among their fellow members, Aaron Custer added.

After winning the state junior creed division in 2017, Cox qualified to compete against the top students nationwide at the FFA national competition held this past October. The contest requires participants to recite by memory the FFA Creed, which outlines the organization’s beliefs on the agriculture industry, and then answer questions directly related to the creed.

As part of her preparations for nationals, Cox worked with younger members to help them prepare for district contest. 


“It was a lot of fun getting to see how they said it a little bit differently then how I would and working together to meet in the middle,” she said. “It was also neat being asked questions from them. Honestly, it felt more accomplishing to help these kids than anything.”

Cox landed in the top 16 competitors at nationals. 


All four plan to put their public speaking skills to use after they graduate from high school. Cox is contemplating a career in law. Custer and Worley both plan to continue their agriculture studies in college. Custer wants to major in agricultural communications with a possible minor public relations and Worley plans to study animal science. Green has not decided on a career field.

 

“Whatever I do, I know this is helping me because I love speaking in front of people, and I love being able to be confident. So whatever job I pick, I want that to be a part of my job,” Green said.

 

In order to qualify for state, competitors placed first or second in their events at area. The Coahoma FFA public relations team placed first at area contest held at Howard College on Nov. 17. Cox came in second in senior creed. 


FFA is a national, student-run program designed to bring about personal growth, leadership skills, and community mindedness in young people through agricultural education.

The Early Head Start Program in Big Spring celebrated with ribbon cutting ceremony, 11/28/18.


Greater Opportunities of the Permian Basin celebrated the addition of The Early Head Start Program at Bauer Head Start School Readiness Academy, located at 108 NW 9th St. in Big Spring with a ribbon cutting with the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce Wednesday afternoon.

 

When asked how she felt about the ribbon cutting, Catriva Webbs, Executive Director of Greater Opportunities of the Permian Basin, noted that their community assessments for the area have shown that it’s been a great need in the area and they’re excited to be able to provide for those services to meet the needs for the children and families in Big Spring.

 

Although Head start consists of pre-school ages 3 to 5, the new early head start ranges from pregnant moms to age 2. Webb advised that it’s the same head start program - researched-based curriculum implementation in the classroom – it’s just an early age group and what’s appropriate for their learning at this age. Unlike head start, early head start provides services year-round.


Applications for the program can be picked up and returned at the front office of the school, 108 NW 9th, and are accepted all year long.

Volunteer Fire Departments respond to fire south of Big Spring. Outside burning strongly discouraged.


On Nov. 28, 2018 a fire was reported at approximately 12:22 PM south of Big Spring, along northbound US 87, north of Wildfire Rd. and south of Brian Rd. in Howard County. 5 units from the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department and 3 units from the Glasscock County Volunteer Fire Department responded to the area to extinguish the fire, along with the Howard County Road and Bridge Department.

 

According to Chief Mitchell Hooper with the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department, the fire had burned 100 acres, and was at 100 percent containment at 8:22 PM last night.

 

Chief Hooper noted that there no injuries to report, and no evacuations were necessary and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

 

Keep in mind that high winds are anticipated in the Howard County area for tomorrow, with wind gusts that could get up to 40 mph, and the lack of recent rainfall combined with several freezes has caused vegetation in the area to begin dying off and drying. Thus creating dangerous fuel for wildfires. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged at this time.

 

If you've recently been burning off piles of brush on your property please make sure those are out entirely. Any smoldering areas will cause a grassfire hazard in the expected gusty winds.

 

Chief Hooper advised that if you need his department to bring water to any smouldering areas remaining on your property, contact him and they will make arrangements for you this afternoon. You can reach Chief Hooper at 432-270-7160.

NO OUTDOOR BURNING - High winds anticipated later this week increase chance of fire in dry conditions.


Starting this Friday high winds are anticipated in the Howard County area. According to the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department, the lack of recent rainfall combined with several freezes has caused vegetation in the area to begin dying off and drying. This creates dangerous fuel for wildfires. Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Mitchell Hooper asks that everyone be very cautious with outdoor activities, especially with the forecast winds for Friday and Saturday that could get up to as high as 40 mph.

 

NO OUTDOOR BURNING is allowed at this time. Also, be advised that if you've recently been burning off piles of brush on your property please make sure those are out entirely. Any smoldering areas will cause a grass fire hazard in the expected gusty winds.

 

Chief Hooper advised that if you need his department to bring water to any smoldering areas remaining on your property, contact him and they will make arrangements for you today and Thursday afternoon. You can reach Chief Hooper at 432-270-7160.

The RED KETTLE CHALLENGE was kicked off yesterday at the Big Spring Walmart with Suggs Hallmark, who manned the red kettle and rang the bell for the Salvation Army of Big Spring. The Red Kettle Challenge encourages businesses, organizations, and community members to volunteer and sponsor a day to ring the bell for the organization during the Red Kettle Season which will continue through December 24th, excluding Sundays.

Bennie Green, Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1 Place 1 for Howard County will be officially retiring on December 31st of this year.

DPS: Take an Extra Helping of Safety This Thanksgiving


AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is reminding motorists to make safety an integral part of their Thanksgiving travel plans and to celebrate the holiday responsibly.

 

“As Texans are traveling to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, DPS is reminding drivers of their duty to help keep our roadways safe – and we urge everyone to take this responsibility seriously,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “We are especially thankful this holiday for our Troopers and other law enforcement partners who will be giving up part of their holiday and time with their families to help patrol Texas roads and keep us safe.”

 

DPS Troopers and other Texas law enforcement agencies will be patrolling around-the-clock during the extended holiday weekend looking for drunk drivers, speeders, seat belt violators and other motorists who are endangering themselves or the public.

 

During the 2017 Thanksgiving holiday, DPS Troopers issued more than 73,000 traffic citations and warnings for a variety of violations, including 8,449 speeding and 1,005 seat belt/child safety seat citations. DPS patrols also resulted in 324 driving while intoxicated arrests, 290 fugitive arrests and 235 felony arrests during the same time period.

 

Show your thanks this holiday to those working on the side of the road by following the law: Slow down or move over for police, fire, EMS, Texas Department of Transportation vehicles and tow trucks stopped on the side of the road with emergency lights activated. Also, show the same courtesy to fellow drivers stopped alongside the road.

 

DPS offers the following tips for safe travel during the extended holiday weekend:

 

• Do not drink and drive. Make alternate travel plans if you are consuming alcohol.
• Slow down – especially in bad weather, construction areas, heavy traffic and unfamiliar areas.
• Eliminate distractions while driving, including the use of mobile devices. Texas law prohibits using a portable wireless device to read, write or send an electronic message unless the vehicle is stopped.
• Buckle up everyone in the vehicle – it’s the law.
• Drive defensively, as holiday travel may present additional challenges.
• Don’t drive fatigued – allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
• If you see a road hazard or if you observe anything suspicious, report it to the nearest law enforcement agency.
• On multi-lane roadways, use the left lane for passing only. Not only is it courteous driving and avoids impeding traffic, Texas law requires slower traffic to keep to the right and to only use the left lane for passing (when posted). 
• Before your trip begins, make sure your vehicle is properly maintained and always double check to make sure all cargo is secure.
• Monitor weather and road conditions wherever you are traveling. For road conditions/closings in Texas, visithttps://drivetexas.org.
