In an ongoing effort to improve safety and relieve congestion, the Texas Transportation Commission recently approved $11.5 million for a project to improve nearly three miles of US 84 in Nolan County.
Price Construction, Ltd., of Big Spring was awarded the project to reconstruct, realign and widen US 84 from five miles east of the Mitchell County line to about a mile northwest of Roscoe. A start date for the project has not been set, but construction is expected to be under way by early 2014.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the donations your company has helped us with in the recent years. All the way back to about five years ago when Wal-Mart helped us purchase things like the ladder truck, help us buy a new dive boat, the gift card donations to help supply food for the community at our 105th anniversary party, and most recently, the gift cards to update our EOC here at the station," said Sweetwater Fire Chief Grant Madden.

SW, Roscoe need W tonight

November 8, 2013

One Nolan County team — Blackwell — has already qualified for the state football playoffs that get started next week. But that number could triple when the dust has finally settled tonight in both Sweetwater and Roby.
Sweetwater, which is 2-2 in District 4-3A and 4-5 overall, will host Wylie (3-1, 6-3) at Mustang Bowl in what is likely a must-win situation for Coach Shane Mobley’s Mustangs.

Highland falls just short in final game

HIGHLAND — Thursday night’s final regular-season football game between Highland and Hermleigh was about what you’d expect for two teams with identical season and district records fighting for the No. 2 playoff spot in District 7 Six-Man.
There were four lead changes, two in each half, before Hermleigh finally emerged with a 39-38 win to take the No. 2 berth and end Highland’s season.

SW faces do-or-die vs. Wylie

November 7, 2013

There will be a definite sense of finality on Friday when Sweetwater and Wylie meet at Mustang Bowl.
It’s the final game of the regular season for both of the teams, but the finality goes further. Consider:
(1) If Sweetwater loses, the Mustangs’ season will be over unless Snyder (1-3 in district) also loses to Midland Greenwood (0-4). If Snyder wins and the Mustangs (2-2) lose to Wylie, Snyder will take the No. 4 — and final — playoff spot in District 4-3A by vir-tue of the Tigers’ 41-14 win over Sweetwater.
