‘Stangs are now in 3-way tie atop 2-4A

April 12, 2015

SNYDER — Suddenly, it’s crowded at the top of the District 2-4A baseball standings with three teams — Sweetwater, Big Spring and Snyder — all at 4-1.
Sweetwater was on top all by itself after the Mustangs won their first four games, but an 8-3 loss to Snyder on Friday at Moffett Field changed that as Big Spring — an 18-5 loser to Sweetwater three nights earlier — also won 9-2 over Lamesa to forge a three-way tie.

First-place Snyder keeps SW at bay after quick start, wins 9-3

April 12, 2015

Sweetwater was supposed to play softball at Snyder on Friday. But due to interfer-ence from Mother Nature that caused the teams’ first district meeting March 20 to be moved to Snyder when Sweetwater’s field was too wet to play on, the rematch Friday was played at the Jerry Collins Complex.
Sweetwater, which was a 12-1 loser in the first game, lost again on Friday, 9-3, to fall to 3-3 in district play.

June 1 new target date for jail, NCSO

April 10, 2015

The construction of the new Nolan County Sheriff’s Office and adjoining jail has been more plagued with delays and holdups than Sheriff David Warren would like to admit. The project, however, is nearing completion, with a new target date of June 1.
Several factors have held up the progress of the building, which was originally slated to open Oct. 31 of last year. The biggest setbacks, according to Warren and County Commissioner Doug Alexander, are attributed to the main contractor, Turner Construction, and its chosen concrete and masonry subcontractor, Hill Bros.
