This is huge, said Gloria Mc- Donald, a member of the Ports to Plains Alliance. We didn t think we would get the northern portion McDonald for probably 20 years or if ever because we weren t sure funding was going to be available. According to McDonald, Michael Reeves, president of the Ports to Plains Alliance, called to inform her that $80 million had been secured to complete the northern portion of the reliever route. McDonald said that money comes from $100 million Ports to Plains received from the Texas Highway Department. The other $20 million is targeted for projects in Dalhart and Lamesa. The Ports to Plains Alliance is a non-profit group consisting of community representatives and business people to promote trade, investment and infrastructure development along the Ports to Pains trade corridor. Highway 87 is part of that corridor, a designated highway that will facilitate transportation of manufactured goods from Mexico through West Texas to Colorado and ultimately on to Canada and the Pacific Northwest. In April, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a portion of the route, an 8.5 mile, four-lane, divided highway which will run from RM 33 to I-20, looping around Big Spring on the west side. Work on the Interstate 20 interchange, which will connect the two, is already under way. Once complete, the route is expected to help relieve truck traffic, especially those carrying hazardous contents, from downtown Big Spring in anticipation of increased traffic from trade between the three countries.

3 3 Local Big Spring Herald Old Settlers Reunion is Saturday in Stanton STANTON Former and current residents of Stanton will be reuniting Saturday for the 81st annual Martin County Old Settlers Reunion. The day-long festivity will begin with the traditional downtown parade at 10 a.m., led by parade marshal Charlie Pinkerton. The parade will begin at the Methodist Church at 208 St. Anna St. and go down St. Peters Street, the main street in town. This year s theme is Cotton, Cattle & Crude. It usually goes down by the nursing home and circles around and comes back through the middle of the town on St. Peters, so everyone gets to see the parade twice, said Kristi Peterson, public relations chairperson. Cash awards will be given to floats in the categories of Best Theme Float, the Best Civic Organization Float and Best Class Reunion Float. A new Continued from Page 1 residence in the 2700 block of Clayton Street. Within like ten minutes it had come all the way down and I could see bright, dark flames. Ashes were falling. At one point, Harman asked a police officer if she needed to evacuate from the house but he informed her not at this time. I was really glad I didn t have to tell her (mom) the house caught on fire, she said. Police were asking residents whose homes were nearest the fire to evacuate while firefighters fought the blaze just yards from the line of houses. The marshal knocked on my door and said we have a major fire behind the house; you need to get out, one resident said. Another resident was watering down her backyard which touches the TRIATHLON Continued from Page 1 said event organizer Craig Felty. Gates to the Comanche Trail Park will close at 7:15 a.m. for the meet. Anyone leaving after that time will have to exit through the driving range road by the golf course. The triathlon course includes the lazy river at the Aquatic Center, alleyway separating the affected area to the line of houses on Clayton. Dark smoke wafted over at times, making it hard to breathe while she soaked her lawn with a garden hose, hoping to provide a barrier to the blaze. The fire was contained to an undeveloped stretch of land between Wasson and Thorpe roads. Residences along Clayton and Apache Streets also line the sides of the land where the grassfire raged. At times, the fire burned right up to the alleyway along the Apache side. About 11 acres were burned in the fire, according to Craig Ferguson, Big Spring Fire Chief. The call came in midafternoon to the Big Spring Fire Department of a grass fire. Three young boys, Austin Darden, Tristan Rangle and Nathan Videl, first discovered the blaze and reported it to authorities. We came out there the park s bike course and the Starlight trail, which is also in the park, Felty said. Races are broken down by age groups ages 7 through 10, 11 through 15, and 15 and older. Maps of the race can be found at Entry fee is $25 and participants receive a goody bag, T-shirt, and a retro style headband. Finisher s also receive a Neon Trucker s hat. Mesothelioma may occur 30 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos. Many workers were exposed from the 1940s through the 1970s.

It was spreading too fast so we called 911. No structures were burned in the two-anda-half hour fire before firefighters were able to extinguish it. Firefighters had the situation under control in about an hour, Ferguson said. It started on the south side of that lot, it looks like at this time, behind those storage build- ings in that area, Ferguson said. The wind was coming out of the south, southwest, so it blew north up towards Thorpe. We set up a perimeter between the two alleys on Clayton and the one on Apache and stopped it at Thorpe up there. The firefighters did an incredible job in getting in there and saving that one home that was right in the middle of all that, Ferguson continued. The houses on Apache and Clayton were in danger, but the firefighters did a great job getting in there and making sure we contained it to just brush. Howard County volunteers firemen were called in to assist bringing in equipment that could drive into the the thick brush and cacti dotting the area. They have some equipment we don t, and they can get into The Super Sprint is for ages 15 and up and is part of USA Triathlon s RETRO series, Felty said.

Amen Bombs on Jerusalem Jerusalem used to be safe. It is nearly 40 miles from Gaza and 3,000 feet above sea level. In the last go-round, the Hamas rockets couldn t reach that far. Now they can. Rockets were fired aimed at both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv this week, as Israel launched its own offensive in Gaza. Every Israeli is a target, a Hamas spokesman was quoted in the press. How do they Su s a n Es t r i c h live like this, a friend asks, after speaking with colleagues in Israel. The Israelis were calmer than me, my friend tells me. They re used to it. But what a thing to be used to. There is, I suppose, a positive side to the state of uncertainty that is life in Israel. In his stunning book, My Promised Land, Ari Shavit writes about the Israeli character, the intensity, the passion, the full engagement with life, the entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to take economic risks, all no doubt shaped by the reality of living in a land where every Israeli is a target. It is no accident that Israel is a center for startups. But as Israel calls up some 40,000 reservists, I cannot help but identify with the 40,000 mothers saying goodbye to their When you stand next to those huge cannons pointing into Mobile Bay, as I did when I recently visited Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan in Alabama, somehow they don t look as menacing as when you see them from the water, as I did when I took the ferry that crosses the mouth of that huge bay. In my quest to rediscover America s hidden Hispanic heritage, I sought the perspective of the Union Navy and the Hispanic commander who led them to victory in the Battle of Mobile Bay 150 years ago during the Civil War. Mi g u e l Pe r e z I wanted to stand aboard a ship and witness the gauntlet created by those two forts when they were controlled by Confederate forces and to appreciate the courage of the Union commander who cried out, Damn the torpedoes; full speed ahead! Although that might be a paraphrased version of what he actually said, more people know that battle cry than they actually know the man who said it. Admiral David G. Farragut is no longer a household name, but he was one of the greatest war heroes in American history. After the Civil War, his image was used in Navy recruitment posters and U.S. postage stamps. Congress created three new naval ranks especially for him. He was our nation s first rear admiral, first vice admiral and first full admiral. He was a pallbearer at Abraham Lincoln s funeral. And yet most Latinos don t know they can proudly call him an ancestor and a role model. Of course, Farragut is not a common Spanish name. It s not like Garcia, Gonzalez, Perez or Rodriguez. But nevertheless, he was the son of a Spanish immigrant. And his father, Jorge Farragut, who was born in Minorca, Spain, in 1755 and immigrated to the United states in 1766 was an American hero, too, having fought in the American Revolution. Young U.S. Latinos don t have many historic role moles. But it s not because they don t exist. It s because they don t know them! Admiral Farragut is a perfect example. In Washington, D.C., two Metro stations bear his name. He has his own square park with his own impressive statue only a couple of blocks from the White House. In his native Tennessee, a whole town was named after him. He has another statue in Manhattan s Madison Square Park, and his gravesite in the Bronx s Woodlawn Cemetery has been designated a National Historic Landmark. If more young Latinos knew about him, if they knew the accomplishments that are possible for the son of an immigrant, surely his story would serve as a source of pride to re-energize their ethnic batteries. And if more Americans knew how Hispanics have played key roles throughout U.S. history, perhaps my Great Hispanic American History Tour wouldn t be necessary. But in Mobile, while you get to see artifacts from the ships that fought the Battle of Mobile Bay and historic markers citing Farragut s great achievements, you see no mention of his Hispanic heritage. Perhaps not purposely, but it s hidden! If you are Hispanic, and you go to Mobile aware that Farragut shares your heritage, you feel grounded in American history. But if you don t know he was the son of a Spanish immigrant, you ve been denied another reason to feel proud of your heritage. In Mobile, especially at Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan, you learn that Farragut gave the Lincoln administration the first in a series of badly needed Union victories which would guarantee the re-election of President Lincoln and the ultimate triumph of the Union. It s here that you to see that the torpedoes that Farragut damned were not really torpedoes as we know them today but floating water mines that blocked the bay. It s here that you get to see the cannons that tried to stop Farragut s invasion, the anchor from the U.S.S Hartford, Farragut s flagship, and the exhibits that illustrate the magnitude of Farragut s courage and victory. Farragut would confront three forts, a series of obstructions, a triple row of torpedoes, and C.S. Admiral Franklin Buchanan s squadron, one of the markers explains. The Confederate ships mounted a total of 22 soldier sons and daughters, understanding that when survival is at stake, everyone serves. This is part of life, my Israeli friends tell me. I know. The experts say that eventually, the parties will agree to a cease-fire, after both sides have met the political demands to take action. Between now and then, there will be deaths and injuries. Mothers on both sides will bury their children, which should not be. And then what? Peace? No. Just back to normal, back to one or two rockets a week, the usual in south Israel. Until then, children are being sent to live with relatives in safer (no place is totally safe) parts of Israel. We just want to live in peace and quiet, one mother, who had sent her children away, told a reporter. I hope the day will come. If not in a peaceful or political situation, then the army will have to help us. The army will have to help us. Can the army keep every child safe? Can the army keep every soldier safe? If you are under attack by those who do not value human life as we do, how can there be peace and quiet. If religious leaders can convince gullible, vulnerable young men and women that the best thing they can do with their lives is to die, killing Jews in the process, then how can there be peace and quiet? Politics is the art of compromise. How do you compromise with those who see themselves pursuing a religious mission to kill you? That is not what Islam dictates, not as it has been understood, but it is how it is understood by the radicals who are determined to destroy Israel. I read some of the comments posted in response to the story of the brutal killing of the three Israeli teenagers. The comments were as frightening as the story. People spewing hate against Israel, the aggressor, the occupier, and saying we Americans should let them go it alone, not waste our dollars or our hearts. And when accused of anti-seminitism, they always say it s not about Jews, it s about Israel. I have bad news for the Israelhaters. The same people who hate Israel also hate Jews and Americans, wherever we live, hate our traditions of equality and freedom, hate those who would allow women to be educated and to have control of their lives and bodies. It is not only Israel that is threatened by extremism, even if the bombs are not falling here. And it is not only Israel that must fight back.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CRE- ATORS.COM Hidden Hispanic role model guns and Fort Morgan mounted 46 guns, 38 of them bearing upon the channel. The ironclad ram, CSS Tennessee, Buchanan s flagship and the most powerful warship in the world, mounted ten guns, four of them rifled. Farragut s ships carried a total of 199 buns. His wooden ships were partially armored with improvised chain armor and sand bags... Another exhibit explains that while running the gauntlet that had been created by Confederate forces, a Union Navy warship, the U.S.S. Tecumseh, struck a mine and went to the bottom in a matter of seconds. It was at that point that Farragut reportedly made his famous war cry, entered the bay and defeated the confederate squadron in the bay to eventually bring about the surrender of the outer forts. Yet another exhibit concludes, It does not matter what Farragut said. It is what he did that is important. Both he and (Tecumseh Commander Tunis) Craven were fully aware of the dangerous uncertainties presented by torpedoes, and both he and Craven took their ships through the torpedo field at full speed. Craven lost his ship and his life, but Farragut took decisive action in a moment of crisis and saved his fleet from certain defeat. It happened in August of 1864, and to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Mobile Bay and the Siege of Fort Morgan, the fort, now operated by the National Parks Department, is planning a series of costumed re-enactments from Aug. 1-3, including the naval battle, the fort siege and the ultimate surrender. I wish I could stay in Mobile for that event just to see if anyone remembers that Farragut was Hispanic. But the Great Hispanic American History Tour must move on down the road and back in time.

5 Big Spring Herald News Briefs Rocket fire from Lebanon strikes Israel, joining Gaza missiles as offensive enters its fourth day JERUSALEM (AP) Gaza rocket fire struck a gas station and set it ablaze Friday in southern Israel, seriously wounding one person as rocket fire also came from Lebanon for the first time in the four-day offensive. The attack on the gas station in Ashdod looked to be the most serious attack in Israel in the four days of fighting that has seen Israel deliver a heavy blow to Gaza s Hamas leaders. The military have carried out more than 1,000 strike strikes against Gaza targets that have killed at least 95 people, including dozens of civilians. The explosion in Ashdod sent plumes of smoke high into the air, leaving a trail of charred vehicles in its wake. Israeli health officials said the blast wounded three people, including one in serious condition. Rocket fire continued in earnest from Gaza toward various locations in southern Israel and around Tel Aviv. In northern Israel, rocket fire struck near the Lebanese border and the military responded with artillery fire toward the source in southern Lebanon, military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said. The Lebanese military said three rockets were fired toward Israel around 6 a.m. (0300 GMT) and the Israelis retaliated by firing about 25 artillery shells on the area. U.S. given heads up about destruction of UK newspaper hard drives with Snowden documents WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration knew in advance that the British government would oversee destruction of a newspaper s hard drives containing leaked National Security Agency documents last year, newly declassified documents show. The White House had publicly distanced itself on whether it would do the same to an American news organization. The Guardian newspaper, responding to threats from the British government in July 2013, destroyed the data roughly a month after it and other media outlets first published details from the top secret documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. After news of the Guardian incident broke the following month, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said it would be very difficult to imagine a scenario in which that would be appropriate. He had been asked whether the U.S. would ever order the destruction of a U.S. media company s computer data. The NSA s, obtained by The Associated Press under the Freedom of Information Act, showed that senior intelligence officials were notified of Britain s intent to retrieve the Snowden documents and that one senior U.S. official appeared to praise the effort. Good news, at least on this front, the current NSA deputy director, Richard Ledgett, said at the end of a short, censored to then-nsa director Gen. Keith Alexander and others. The subject of that July 19, 2013, was: Guardian data being destroyed. A paragraph before Ledgett s comment was blacked out by censors, and the NSA declined to answer questions about the documents. Dire situation: Obama official says border control funds drained by flood of immigrant kids WASHINGTON (AP) The Homeland Security agency responsible for removing immigrants who are in the country illegally will run out of money by mid-august unless Congress approves President Barack Obama s emergency request for $3.7 billion to help deal with a flood of child immigrants crossing the border illegally without their parents, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says. Additionally, Customs and Border Protection, whose 20,000-plus Border Patrol agents are responsible for arresting illegal border crossers, will be out of money by mid-september at the current burn rate, Johnson told the Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday as he defended the Cordially Invite You to Attend our Services TRINITY BAPTIST 1701 E.

Johnson said if Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Border Patrol run out of money, the Homeland Security Department would need to divert significant funds from other critical programs just to maintain operations. While Johnson, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and other administration officials made their pitch for the extra money, outlines of a possible compromise to more quickly deport minors arriving from Central America emerged Thursday. More than 57,000 child immigrants, mostly from Central America, have been caught crossing the Mexican border since Oct. 1. Republicans demanded speedier deportations for Central American immigrant children, which the White House initially had supported but left out of its emergency spending proposal after complaints from immigrant advocates and some Democrats. On Thursday, the top House and Senate Democrats pointedly left the door open to faster deportations. In Afghanistan, Kerry seeks path out of post-election crisis; UN plans to audit fraud claims KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) Secretary of State John Kerry sought Friday to broker a deal between Afghanistan s rival presidential candidates as a bitter dispute over last month s runoff election risked spiraling out of control. Kerry, who arrived predawn in Kabul on a hastily arranged visit, is meeting with former Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai and former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah as well as the current leader, President Hamid Karzai. The objective is to convince both candidates to hold off on declaring victory or trying to set up a government until the United Nations can conduct an audit of extensive fraud allegations in the voting. For the United States, the political crisis is threatening to undermine more than a decade of efforts to leave behind a strong Afghanistan capable of containing the Taliban insurgency and preventing extremist groups like al-qaida from using the territory to endanger the American homeland. We are in a very, very critical moment for Afghanistan, Kerry told reporters after meeting the U.N. chief in Afghanistan, Jan Kubis. Legitimacy hangs in the balance. The future potential of the transition hangs in the balance. So we ve a lot of work to do. Russia closes 3 major border crossings with Ukraine because of clashes MOSCOW (AP) Russian officials say they have closed three major border crossings in the wake of heavy fighting in Ukraine. Russian news agencies on Friday quoted Vasily Malayev, spokesman for the Federal Security Service in the Rostov region, as saying that three crossings east of Donetsk were temporarily closed late Thursday night because of fighting on the other side. Ukraine says it regained control of one crossing which had been controlled by rebels. Pro-Russian insurgents in eastern Ukraine have declared independence and have been fighting Ukrainian government troops for more than three months. Government forces have been advancing in the recent days, pushing the insurgents closer to the Russian border. Malayev told RIA Novosti on Friday customs staffers had been evacuated from the border crossing while border guards remained at their positions. Police say suspect in Houston shooting faced previous allegations of domestic violence SPRING, Texas (AP) A man charged with killing six members of his ex-wife s family, including four children, was the subject of a restraining order obtained by his own mother less than a week before the attack and faced previous allegations of domestic violence, authorities said. Ronald Lee Haskell, 33, is accused of killing his ex-wife s sister, Katie Stay, her husband and the children, ranging in age from 4 to 14, after binding and putting them face-down on the floor of their suburban Houston home. Each was shot in the back of the head after the family refused to tell Haskell where he could find his ex-wife, officials said. The lone survivor of the Wednesday attack, the slain couple s 15-year-old daughter, suffered a fractured skull when a bullet grazed her head. The San Diego County, California, sheriff s office said in a Thursday statement that Haskell s mother had reported an argument with her son July 2 at her home in San Marcos, California, during which Haskell physically restrained her when she tried to leave the house to call for help. Haskell finally left after a few hours, and his mother contacted 911, the statement says. She later obtained a restraining order against her son and the case remains under investigation, according to the statement. Haskell also had a handful of previous run-ins with law enforcement in Utah, where he had lived with his wife. Neighbors said Haskell s marriage was so rocky that Stay went to Utah last fall to help her sister escape the relationship and start a new life in Texas. Dismissing GOP lawmakers claim, officers say no stand-down order given in Benghazi attacks WASHINGTON (AP) Military officers testified that there was no stand-down order that held back military assets that could have saved the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans killed at a diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. Their testimony undercut the contention of Republican lawmakers. The stand-down theory centers on a Special Operations team a detachment leader, a medic, a communications expert and a weapons operator with his foot in a cast that was stopped from flying from Tripoli to Benghazi after the attacks of Sept , 2012, had ended. Instead, it was instructed to help protect and care for those being evacuated from Benghazi and from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli. The senior military officer who issued the instruction to remain in place and the detachment leader who received it said it was the right decision and has been widely mischaracterized. The order was to remain in Tripoli and protect some three dozen embassy personnel rather than fly to Benghazi some 600 miles away after all Americans there would have been evacuated. And the medic is credited with saving the life of an evacuee from the attacks. Transcripts of hours of closed-door interviews with nine military leaders by the House Armed Services and Oversight and Government Reform committees were made public for the first time on Wednesday. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the oversight panel, has suggested that Hillary Rodham Clinton gave the order, though as secretary of state at the time, she was not in the military chain of command. Police: Woman linked to 2 heroin deaths panicked in 1, calmly walked away from other MILTON, Ga. (AP) Twice last year, Alix Tichelman found herself alone with a man suffering from a drug overdose. The first time she called 911. The second time, police say, she just walked away. Tichelman, 26, faces manslaughter charges in California after police say the alleged high-priced prostitute calmly collected her things and left as Google executive Forrest Hayes lay dying on his yacht in November following a heroin overdose. About two months earlier in Georgia, she made a panicked call to 911 as her boyfriend Dean Riopelle, owner of a popular Atlanta music venue, suffered an overdose in their home. Tichelman was never charged in Riopelle s death, but police said Thursday they re going to re-examine that case. Both subjects in these cases died of heroin overdoses so there s just several factors we want to look at to make sure that we didn t miss anything, Milton police Capt. Shawn McCarty said.

At that time, people lived between 400 and 900 years. During that much time many people were born to each couple; Cain was right to worry that someone would not know him and would kill him. Cain and Seth must have married their sisters; this was done in ancient times. Daughters simply were not mentioned unless something noteworthy happened to them or because of them. A few examples are: *Naamah was the daughter of Sudoku Answer on Page 15 sudoku Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9 with no repeats. That means no number is repeated in any row, column or box. Lamech and the sister of Tubal- Cain. She is only mentioned because she was the wife of Noah. *Abraham s wife, Sarah, and his brother Nahor s wife, Milcah, were the daughters of their dead brother, Haran. *The daughters of Laban, Leah and Rachael, are spoken of because they became the wives of Jacob. *Jacob s daughter, Dinah, went out among the Canaanites and was taken by a Canaanite prince. This caused a war between them and Jacob s sons, Levi and Simeon. Lamech, the fifth generation from Cain, took two wives. This became a common practice for the generation of the Flood. One wife was intended to bear children, for a man s prestige his masculine prowess was determined by how many sons he sired. The other wife was intended for his pleasure; she was not intended to be encumbered with children and she was always pampered like a bride. By example, God showed us that He intended for man to have only one wife when he made only one wife for Adam. The selection of a wife was a very important matter.

Abraham did not want his son Isaac to marry a woman from the idol worshippers, with low moral standards, among whom he lived. In his extreme old age, Abraham charged his loyal servant to travel a great distance to secure a wife for Isaac from the family of Abraham s brother, Nahor. The Lord showed him Rebecca, who became Isaac s wife. Many years later, Esau, the son of Isaac and Rebecca, married two Canaanite women. They had been raised in an atmosphere of very loose morals, and Esau s descendants displayed this characteristic. We no longer marry close relatives, but we should be very observant of the family values into which we marry. Satan would like us to make our choice for a mate on the basis of emotions.

Rift over religious liberty pulls religious leaders, gays apart By the Associated Press In the intensifying debate over religious liberty, President Barack Obama faces pressure from opposite flanks as he prepares to issue an executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating against gay and transgender people in hiring. Many religious leaders and conservative groups want him to exempt religious organizations from the order. Liberal clergy and groups advocating on behalf of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people adamantly oppose such an exemption and have pulled their support for a non-discrimination bill they long supported to drive the point home. The upshot is a difficult balancing act for the White House, which says the executive order is still being drafted nearly a month after Obama announced he would sign it. White House spokesman Josh Earnest declined to say whether a religious exemption would be included or was even being considered. Within the past two weeks, scores of religious leaders of contrasting views have signed letters to Obama, arguing for and against an exemption. One letter, signed by 14 faith leaders urging a robust exemption, was organized by Michael Wear, a Washington-based consultant who previously worked on Obama s re-election campaign and in the White House office of faith-based initiatives. It s a tough issue for the White House, and for me and many of the signers of the letter, Wear said. It s about a tension between two constitutionally valid principles protecting LGBT people from discrimination, and also protecting groups whose whole being is about religious belief. He said the exemption sought by the 14 signatories of his letter would not establish new prerogatives for religious organizations, but would enable them to continue long-standing hiring practices favoring people who share the employers faith. Among those signing were popular evangelical preacher Rick Warren, prominent megachurch pastor and Obama confidant Joel Hunter, and the Rev. Larry Snyder, CEO of Catholic Charities USA. Opponents of an exemption say existing federal policy already allows some religious organizations the leeway to hire and fire based upon religious identity. However, that provision does not permit discrimination based on race, gender or disability, and gay-rights supporters say discrimination against LGBT people also should be barred. There is unanimity among every LGBT group that no new religious exemptions will be tolerated, said Fred Sainz, a vice president of the Human Rights Campaign. Taxpayers dollars should not be used to discriminate. gives you fun in the sun with the SCHLITTERBAHN & SIX FLAGS FIESTA TEXAS TICKET GIVEAWAY!!

And they did it in a big way. Big Spring, backed by the arm of quarterback Tobyn Tannehill and a sure-handed receiving corps, turned in an offensive clinic at the Veterans Athletic Complex in College Station. The Steers rolled up 115 points en route to claiming three wins and breezing to the Pool J title. By winning their pool, the Steers earned a berth in today s 32-team championship bracket. The Steers were scheduled to begin championship round action at 9 a.m. against East Bernard. The Steers didn t waste any time in proving they could Angels start fast in romp over Texas score. Big Spring opened Pool J action on Thursday afternoon by picking apart an overmatched LaVilla defense to the tune of Big Spring clinched a berth in the championship round shortly after that by downing Princeton in the second round, The Steers wrapped up the Pool J title with a romp over Thorndale in their third pool play outing. Princeton finished second in the Pool J standings and also advanced to the finals. They were slated to face Eastland in the first round of the championship bracket. Big Spring wasn t the only District 4-4A team making it to the championship bracket. Brownwood and Abilene Wylie both earned berths with solid outings pool action. Wylie was second in the Pool P division, and advanced to face China Spring this morning. Texas State 7-on-7 Football Championships Held June in College Station. Pool J Standings Team W L x-big Spring y-princeton Thorndale La Villa x - Pool champion y-pool runner-up Big Spring results Game 1: Big Spring 40, LaVilla 7 Game 2: Big Spring 34, Princeton 13 Game 3: Big Spring 41, Thorndale 27 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Kole Calhoun got the Los Angeles Angels off to a fast start with a leadoff triple, and he trotted home after an errant relay throw bounced into the seats. All-Star center fielder Mike Trout and the rest of the Angels quickly followed his lead, and Los Angeles went on to a 15-6 rout over the freefalling Texas Rangers on Thursday night. Oh yeah we were having fun, said Trout, the No. 2 hitter behind Calhoun who had a threerun homer among his four hits. We always have fun, we know what this offense is capable of doing. The first four Angels batters in the game had hits and scored. They added six more runs in the second and were already up 13-2 against Colby Lewis (6-6) when Trout hit his 21st homer with one out in the third. Those are the days you play for in organized sports, especially in baseball, when everybody s contributing, everybody s having fun, everybody s getting hits, said Josh Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP with Texas who had RBI doubles in each of the first two innings. It s a fun thing to be a part of. While the Angels won for the seventh time in eight games, Texas has lost five straight and 19 of 22. The Rangers (38-54) have the worst winning percentage in the majors at.413. The Rangers clubhouse remained closed for about 30 minutes after the game. Manager Ron Washington refused to reveal what he said to his team, but gave some insight into what he expects from his players. That you don t stop fighting. You don t give into adversity. The game of baseball is full of it. You don t give in to it, he said. The only people that can make a change and make a difference is my guys. Hector Santiago (1-7) struck out eight in six innings. The left-hander allowed four runs and five hits. Lewis allowed a clubrecord 13 runs in only innings. He also gave up a career-worst 13 hits in his 130th major league start, while his ERA increased by more than a full run from 5.51 to 6.54 after 11 earned runs were changed against him. Calhoun, who had four hits and scored four times, was only a homer shy of a cycle after hits in each of the first three innings. He admittedly 100 percent was trying to go deep his last two at-bats in a lopsided game, but grounded out and had another single. I was definitely pulling for it, Trout said. It was fun to watch. Calhoun pulled another ball down the rightfield line for an RBI double in the second. Trout then drove in a run on a chopper for an infield hit before Albert Pujols had a sacrifice fly though he reached base when right fielder Alex Rios dropped the ball on the warning track for an error. Hamilton then had the second of his three doubles in the game. Erick Aybar, added to the AL All-Star team Thursday, also had RBIs in each of the first two innings. He drove in a run with a groundout in the first and had an RBI single in the second. Football equipment to be distributed Big Spring High School football athletes will get to get their hands and heads into football equipment for the first time on months later this month when the school s coaches begin distributing equipment. According to the Big Spring coaching staff, players will be fitted for equipment beginning with the seniors on July 28. Seniors will be fitted from 8 a.m. to 4 Incoming juniors will be fitted on July 29 from 8 a.m. to 4, while sophomore can pick up their gear on July 30. Freshmen will be fit for equipment on July 31. Any players unable to make their respective slots can be fitted on Aug. 1. High school athletics will get under way within the next month for athletes at Big Spring, Coahoma and Forsan. Big Spring coaches will be distributing equipment shortly, and are reminding all football and volleyball players they will need updated physicals prior to the start of preseason drills. Fielder focuses on healing, not playing ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Prince Fielder is focused on healing after neck surgery and not worried about when he will play again for the Texas Rangers. I m motivated (to play), but I just want to heal first. I m not trying to push anything, Fielder said Thursday. That s what got me in this situation now. I m trying to be a little smarter. It was the first time Fielder spoke to reporters in the clubhouse since his cervical fusion of two disks in his neck on May 27. The HOUSTON (AP) They say it s more of a concept than a concrete plan, but the Houston Texans and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo have developed a $66 million idea that involves demolishing the historic Astrodome. A 37-page booklet mostly of artist renderings first baseman said he is doing a little rehab, but nothing too serious or baseball-wise yet. Fielder isn t expected to play again this season, but should be ready for spring training. Right now, not really worried about the baseball part, he said. Worried about just actually letting it fuse and letting it heal. Baseball stuff, that ll be there, obviously. But I just want to heal first before I do anything. Once I get cleared to do something, I don t know how to do under 100 percent. When he played his obtained by The Associated Press late Thursday shows the domed stadium replaced with a green space and Astrodome Hall of Fame. A brochure shows a construction timetable that ends with the 2017 Super Bowl but would have started work June 2. last game on May 16, Fielder had appeared in 547 consecutive games since 2010, then the longest active streak in the majors. He hit.247 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 42 games in his first season with Texas after being acquired last November from Detroit for Ian Kinsler. Asked if his neck problem was the cause of his low offensive production, Fielder shrugged his shoulders. It definitely doesn t help trying to hit with a herniated disk, but I don t know if it s the cause, Fielder said. Rodeo operations chief Leroy Shafer says, in reality, there is no timetable because the plan is not yet being placed before the Harris County commissioners for a decision. The plan was first reported by the Houston Chronicle. The idea comes two The will be a few familiar faces in new places when the 2015 Western Junior College Athletic Conference baseball season rolls around. Both Odessa College and Frank Phillips College both announced the hiring of new coaches recently. In Borger, Frank Phillips president Judd Hicks announced that longtime assistant coach Mario Eramo would assume the head coaching duties for the Plainsmen, the defending regular-season runners-up in the WJCAC standings. Eramo fills a void created by the departure of former FPC coach Kurtis Lay, who took over the reins at Odessa College. After spending the past several years an assistant, Eramo will be beginning his first season as a head coach. The Houston native comes with three years of coaching experience as an assistant, and one year of volunteer service at FPC. I m very excited and honored to become the new head coach, and I will be ready to go when school gets started, he said. Lay helped lead the Plainsmen to second place in the WJCAC standings. Eramo played college baseball at Blinn Junior College in Brenham for two years, and then went on to play catcher and outfielder for two years at Penn State University. Fielder, who is under contract through 2020, said he couldn t pinpoint a specific time when he started to experience discomfort in his neck. He just knows he was hurting during the spring, and that he tried to play despite constant irritation. I d like to see what a healthy Prince is, manager Ron Washington said. What happened to him, he couldn t prevent it.... We do feel that he ll get a full recovery. Hopefully he can stay healthy for us and continue to produce as he has in the past. Texans, rodeo devise Dome s demolition plan months after Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, who chairs the county s board of commissioners, asked the stadium s stakeholders to suggest what to do with it. The Texans and the rodeo have been eager to free up the space now filled by the derelict dome. WJCAC teams get new baseball coaches Eramo will have a new assistant coach in Nick Camp, who will coming in from Galveston Community College. Mario Eramo was named the new FPC baseball coach last week.

Tomorrow's Capricorn full moon, also known as the thunder moon, will highlight ambitions. Many already have a highly motivating goal in mind. Cancer energy HOLIDAY MATHIS lends an intuitive edge, too. Be sure to write down your inklings, because they may be psychic hits. ARIES (March 21-April 19). The first step in creating work that people love is loving the work yourself and having fun while you're doing it. The more interesting your work is to you the more interesting it will be to others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Too many people are prone to self-doubt and the tendency to underestimate what they can do. You'll witness this dynamic and take every opportunity to build people up. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just because you can see things from another person's point of view doesn't mean you're soft. In fact, your perspective and compassion are what allow you to stand behind your personal rules. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have been given a gift that you may never be able to pay back, but that's OK -- you weren't meant to. The world will be Dear Annie: I am having a hard time forgetting my boyfriend's past. Before we met, he subscribed to girlie magazines, went to strip clubs, bought lap dances, etc. I have always felt those things are degrading and disrespectful to women. He also has said he fantasizes about other women. Whenever I see him staring at a hot girl, it makes me think of his past. I do believe he loves me, but I can't help it. This is causing problems in our relationship. How do I get beyond this? -- Hard Time Forgiving Dear Hard Time: A lot of men subscribe to girlie magazines and have visited strip clubs. As long as he has stopped doing these things, we wouldn't worry about that part of his past. Fantasizing is common (women do it, too) and is not a concern unless he acts on it, although he would be wise to stop discussing his fantasies, since you become so upset. KATHY MITCHELL MARCY SUGAR Tomorrow s Horoscope better when you pay it forward instead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The proverb goes: Honey is sweet, but the bees sting. Today you'll take a calculated risk in order to taste the good side of life. The potential danger isn't too great, so go for it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those who don't believe in magic often believe in things that are just as improbable but much more boring. You'll be drawn to the fanciful types, and they will keep you entertained. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll find yourself trying to reason with unreasonable forces. Some of these come in the form of children. Maintain your structure and your patience. This is a test. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Friends tell you your strengths, critics tell you your faults, and loved ones tell you you're accepted for both. It's good to feel that there is someone who loves you unconditionally. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can't stick to the recipe when you don't have all of the ingredients. Life will force you to change it up, but what you create will be better for the challenge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It appears that what you assumed has been proved correct. Another theory is that what's happening is a direct result of your assumption. In other words, you believed it, so it's coming true. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If part of you is stretching into You and your boyfriend could look into couples counseling to see whether that can help you work through this. But if you cannot let go of his past, we hope you will let go of him. You both deserve a relationship where you feel secure and not judged. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Frustrated Employee" and can empathize. It seems no one ever gets punished, fired or held accountable for not doing their jobs. I, too, am frustrated with the entitled attitude of many co-workers. It's downright theft when they habitually pad timecards, use sick leave for a personal day, show up late, take long lunch hours, leave early, etc. And if you are brave enough to complain to management, you are told that this matter will be taken under advisement (and never is), or you are accused of not being a "team player" and blamed for your negative attitude toward your co-workers. You try to just do your job, but it is difficult when you share the future and the other part is lagging in the past, there won't be enough of you left to take advantage of the opportunity going on right now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Lose the definitions and judgments for now. If you split yourself into "bad" and "good," the two sides of you will engage in an internal battle, draining the little that will be left for productivity. TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 11). You'll leave a strong mark on the book of life this year. You'll enjoy and welcome contact with the world in the next 10 weeks, and then you'll enter into a more introspective period. With a fresh mind in November, you'll keep track of all that's going on and retain the learning, turning it into a power play at the first of It's money in the bank. Virgo and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 47, 45, 2 and 21. WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You say the truth in a pleasant, positive manner, and when you have to say "no," you do it gently. TAURUS: You are healthy and independently happy seeking the same. Romance is stellar with a partner who fits these two requirements. GEMINI: Your love life may take a backseat to your work right now, but the right supportive partner will understand. CANCER: These days, to make love work, it seems you must adopt an unquestioning level of commitment. LEO: Liking isn't the same as being willing to do the day-to-day maintenance that's involved in a committed relationship. VIRGO: Sometimes even those with the best responsibilities on a project, and the other person doesn't carry their weight. Why should I suffer ulcers, sleepless nights, short lunches at my desk and long days in order to support someone else's lack of work ethic? You suggested that "Frustrated Employee" put out an updated resume, but it's possible this person has benefits that cannot be replaced, isn't able to relocate for another position or is close to retirement. Why do the rules only apply to the few? From experience, I know that some things will never change. But why are we condoning the actions of those who are not productive and condemning those who are? -- Another Frustrated Employee Writing on His Own Time Dear Another: The reason for your ulcers and frustration is that you think there is some way to transform the useless coworkers or hold management accountable. But there isn't. If management chooses to ignore incompetent employees, the business suffers, but your choice is simply to stay or go. If you choose to stay, for whatever reason, it helps to tune out what you cannot fix. Do your job, document your efforts, put a manners forget to practice civility with their nearest and dearest. LIBRA: You are a better person because of the way someone loved you. That's why you're so determined to do the same for another. SCORPIO: Some relationships are only as exciting as they are unfulfilled. Keep the tension. SAGITTARIUS: Most relationship problems aren't solved with a one-time solution. Keep working on it. CAPRICORN: Sometimes you think you're the one who loves the most, but this doesn't scare you. AQUARIUS: If the one you love also happens to be your biggest advocate, you've hit the jackpot. PISCES: You sometimes wonder whether the other person has your best interests at heart. What is causing this doubt in you? COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Capricorn and Cancer will have a great affinity for each other as the Cancer sun shines fully on the Capricorn moon's face, illuminating its best qualities. Capricorn has big ambitions in life, and Cancer will be an avid fan and a strong supporter, providing a comfortable home base for Capricorn to operate from. Capricorn lends a feeling of safety and security that the crab deeply appreciates.

Conscientious, capable employees like you feel responsible for the success of the company and want their efforts appreciated. But if the company doesn't care, please let yourself off the hook. Dear Annie: This is in regard to "Proud Mom," who didn't like it when people attempted to touch her baby. There are quite a few places where she can find signs that attach to car seats and strollers saying, "Please Don't Touch the Baby." I found plenty offered online, and she could even make her own. Of course, it won't stop everyone, but it might help a little. -- Completely Understand Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

15 Big Spring Herald Sp o r t s 15 Montgomerie leads after first day of Senior Open EDMOND, Okla. (AP) olin Montgomerie declared ernhard Langer the favorite eading into the U.S. Senior pen. After 18 holes, Montgomerie ay well have seized that posiion himself with a 6-under 65 o lead at the end of Thursday t Oak Tree National. The Scotsman started on No. 0 and birdied Nos. 14, 15 and 16 n the way to a 33 on the back ine. He birdied six, seven and ight to finish strong in oppresive heat and humidity. That was the key to the round, the three birdies in a row on the front nine, my back nine, Montgomerie said. To birdie six, seven, eight was good. Marco Dawson was second after a 66, and Mark Brooks was third after shooting 68. Langer was one of five golfers tied for fourth with a 69. Dawson, in his first Senior Open, started on the back nine and shot 2 under, then was steady on the front nine before scoring birdies on seven, eight and nine. The 50-year-old said it was one of the two best rounds he s played in his six Champions Tour events. He was pleased with the performance, especially considering the course s challenging reputation. It just seemed to happen, you know, birdie, birdie, birdie the last three holes, so I ended up 5 under, he said. I could have shot 2 under and still would have been a good round. Brooks birdied the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th holes to go 4 under on his first five holes. He shot 3 under on the back nine and even on the front nine. I ve been playing here since high school, he said. I m comfortable here. My mother and father both are Oklahomans, so I got a lot of Oklahoma blood in me. Langer, who entered the Senior Open having already won three events this year, was in a five-way tie for fourth along with Vijay Singh, Kirk Triplett, Scott Dunlap and Gene Sauers. Kenny Perry, last year s Senior Open winner, shot a 75. Mother Nature was a factor for various reasons. Play was delayed for 77 minutes at the start due to the threat of lightning, and play was suspended because of darkness at 8:54 CDT. Wilting 90-plus degree heat with humidity hit in the afternoon. Darrell Kestner completed 14 holes Thursday before withdrawing and being treated for a heat-related issue. Peter Jacobsen, who withdrew from last year s Senior Open in Omaha after nine holes because of dehydration, made it through the opening day in Edmond.

16 Big Spring Herald 16 Sp o r t s Cavaliers sign Kyrie Irving to 5-year, $90 million extension CLEVELAND (AP) The Cavaliers didn t ait. They announced yrie Irving s contract xtension the moment hey were allowed. While the team, Cleveand s fans and most of the BA anxiously awaited decision from LeBron ames about where the ree agent megastar will lay next, Irving signed is new five-year, $90 milion contract extension, a eal which will keep him n a wine-and-gold uniorm until The Cavs reached an greement with Irving on he extension in the first ours after free agency pened last week. They eren t permitted to conrm the deal publicly ntil Thursday, when he league s moratorium ended. The move to extend Irving continued what has been a memorable summer. The team hired new coach David Blatt, selected forward Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall draft pick and then locked up Irving. On Wednesday, they traded three players: guard Jarrett Jack, center Tyler Zeller and swingman Sergey Karasev to open salary-cap space so they can offer James a maximum contract. We are excited that Kyrie has officially committed to be here longterm with the Cleveland Cavaliers, owner Dan Gilbert said in a release. The future has never been brighter as we are building the team and franchise for sustainable success. Kyrie is obviously a very big piece of our plan. Irving averaged 20.8 points, 6.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 71 games last season, his third with Cleveland. The former No. 1 overall pick was also voted MVP of the NBA s All-Star game. Gilbert made Irving the club s top offseason priority. The Cavs hoped in getting him signed to a long-term deal it would make them more appealing to James, who appears to have narrowed his choices to re-signing with Miami or return to Cleveland, where he played his first seven seasons as a pro. Chosen first in 2011, one season after James With sale deadline looming, Sterling s trial gets delayed LOS ANGELES (AP) he proposed $2 billion ale of the Los Angeles lippers is now in noody s court. With a deadline looming ext week to approve the eal, a judge on Thursday elayed the next hearing. ut lawyers said a deadine extension was probble. Lawyers for disgraced eam owner Donald Stering told the judge more itness testimony was ecessary but they could ot return until July 1 because of personal lans. So Superior Court udge Michael Levanas ut off the next hearing nd scheduled further essions that will culmiate with closing arguents on July 28. The fate of the Clipers is actually up to the BA, which has banned Sterling from the league for life for making racist statements and has indicated it could seize and auction the team if a sale isn t completed by Sept. 15. Sterling s wife, Shelly Sterling, testified Thursday that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told her several weeks ago that he would consider reducing her husband s lifetime ban to a single year if he agreed to sell. Sterling had seemed eager to find a buyer earlier this year but later turned against the idea, she said. Sterling has now vowed he ll never sell and is suing to block his wife s single-handed deal to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion. Shelly Sterling said she feared players wouldn t LOS ANGELES (AP) Clayton Kershaw s scoreless streak ended at 41 innings Thursday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers ace gave up a solo homer to San Diego s Chase Headley. The switch-hitting Headley drove a 1-2 pitch to left-center with two outs in the sixth inning for the Padres second hit off Kershaw. The two-time Cy Young Award winner came within 18 innings of the major league record set by Dodgers righthander Orel Hershiser, who threw 59 straight shutout innings in Kershaw s streak was the longest in the majors since Brandon Webb went 42 innings for the Arizona Diamondbacks in Kershaw s astounding run included his no-hitter June 18 against Colorado. He also limited the Rockies to two hits over eight innings in the rematch last Friday. The previous run against the 26-year-old play and sponsors would boycott if her husband held on to the team and that she kept Sterling informed of her search for a buyer. Every day, he would ask me, Who did you interview? What did they offer? she said. Ballmer s offer which would be a record for an NBA team was the highest of four offers she obtained. I thought it was fabulous, she said, adding that she also personally liked Ballmer and even would have accepted a lower offer. After hearing the offer, Sterling told her he was very happy and proud of me, Shelly Sterling said. But when it came to signing off on the deal at the end of May, everything changed, she testified. San Diego ends Kershaw s scoreless streak ends at 41 innings left-hander came on an RBI double by Arizona s Aaron Hill in the third inning of Kershaw s 4-3 win June 13. During his scoreless streak, Kershaw allowed 17 hits, struck out 52 batters, walked six and stranded 23 runners four at third base. He retired the leadoff hitter in 36 of those innings. Hershiser pitched scoreless ball over the final six regular-season starts of his only Cy Young season. left, Irving has averaged 20.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 181 games. He s been somewhat injury prone, but the 22-year-old played in 71 games last season. The one thing missing from Irving s pro resume is a playoff appearance, but the Cavs believe with a young nucleus of players and maybe James Cleveland can contend again in the Eastern Conference. Before he committed to the Cavs on the extension, Irving had sent out mixed signals last season about his desire to stay in Cleveland. But he s been fully engaged in their plans and has reportedly made his own personal pitch to bring James back. As LeBron decides, Miami, Cavs wait When it comes to Le- Bron James, all that s certain is this: One fan base is about to feel scorned, and other is about to feel absolute joy. Miami or Cleveland? The same choice he faced four years ago is the one facing the fourtime NBA MVP now. He became a champion in Miami. He still calls Ohio home. It s obviously not an easy decision, and the ramifications of what he s about to say it s still unclear when any announcement will be coming, but it s more than likely sooner than later will have a massive impact on the Heat and the Cavaliers. For the Heat, keeping James is likely the only way they can stay a championshipcontending team for a fifth straight season next year. If he stays, it would seem likely that Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would re-sign with Miami as well, keeping the Big 3 that has played in each of the last four NBA Finals intact. For the Cavaliers, it s a chance to welcome home the player who fans and the team s owner Dan Gilbert directed so much scorn toward when he left in James left Las Vegas late Thursday, two people close to the situation told The Associated Press Gregg St. Big Spring, TX OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 1PM-3PM 706 W. 14TH ST.
