Spring cleaning results in more than a clean home

March 26, 2012

It’s March – the birds are singing, the grass is green and the sun is shining for a longer period of time, it seems. Embrace the season by doting a bit on your major appliances.
Spring cleaning includes cleaning large appliances – such as the air conditioning unit and refrigerator – that might have been overworked in previous months. Equipment maintenance could save money on electricity and help you avoid costly repairs.

‘Stangs stun 5A Odessa High to end losing skid

March 26, 2012

It’s not often that a Class 3A team gets the chance to play against a Class 5A team like Odessa High because it is usually such a daunting task to compete well, espec-ially after three straight losses by a combined score of 42-7.
But Sweetwater proved up to the challenge Saturday when it hosted the Broncos and won, 4-2, to snap its three-game skid.
Brandon Howell threw a complete-game win, and he and Greg Aiken each collected a pair of RBI as Sweetwater got back to .500 (7-7-1) for the season with its win over Odessa (8-15) in the non-district game.
