BIG SPRING - Big Spring could be jumping into the 21st century in a big way.

The Economic Development Office is looking into a project that would install fiber-optic lines throughout Howard County.

A grant would pay most of the cost with the county paying for about 30% of the plan.

Officials say the fiber optic lines could help attract new businesses to the area and improve communications.
