Annual Ballinger Little Olympics Thursday, May 19th, 2016
The annual Ballinger Little Olympics for our 4th and 5th grade students will be held Thursday evening, May 19, 2016 at the Bearcat Football Stadium. The field events of obstacle course, running long jump, softball throw and standing broad jump will begin @ 5:00pm. Running events will begin after field events are complete.
There will be 2 teacher events that will take place in the middle of our running events. One of the teacher events involves some of our 5th graders and hopefully some parents. It should be lots of fun to watch!!
The Ballinger Elementary PTO will operate the concession stand!
Admission to Little Olympics is $2.00 for all adults and $1.00 for all school age children. The 4th and 5th graders who are participating will be admitted free of charge. We invite you to come out and enjoy an evening of fun watching our future Bearcats and Lady Cats in this competition!

BIG SPRING - People still address mental illness with hushed tones and worried glances instead of confronting it head-on like they do with other diseases, said Shelley Smith, CEO of West Texas Centers, the mental health authority for 23 rural counties in West Texas. 

Although mental health has been accepted more readily into the social mainstream, it’s still uncomfortable for many to address head-on, Smith said. 

“When it is brought up, many still feel uncomfortable and don’t know what to say,” she said. “They may just change the subject or make light of it or just say it will pass or say ‘I have an aunt who is crazy too.’ We don’t act that way when someone has heart disease or diabetes so why do we act that way when someone has a disease such as mental illness?”
