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.
