LUBBOCK, Texas -

The South Plains Council of Boys Scouts is inviting girls to join.

Starting this year, families can choose to sign up their sons and daughters for Cub Scouts. It's part of its "Rocket into Scouting" membership drive.

"Our hope is that we can reach more young people than we have in the past and deliver a fun, safe, family-oriented program called cubscouting, and we want as many boys and girls to get involved in our program as possible," Nathan Baie, Scout Executive, said.

Existing packs will have the option to establish a new girls pack, establish a pack that includes boys and girls den or simply remain all boys.

Scout leaders say this will help keep the integrity of the single gender model while being more inclusive of families needs.

    Tonight will be the coldest for a while

    Prepare for a cold one, but thankfully it'll be the chilliest night through the next few weeks. TONIGHT: A few clouds, leading to some clearing skies. Low temperature near 27° near Lubbock. Areas to the north may be in the mid-20s, so you may have to keep your pipes in mind. Winds won't be as breezy, about 10-15 miles out of the north.  SUNDAY: A cold one with a high near 45°. Expect winds out of the north 5-10 mph under mostly sunny skies. Even by Monday, we're back...

    Kansas State defeats Texas Tech 21-6

    Kansas State won the coin toss and deferred, so the Red Raiders got the ball first. Jett Duffey was 4/5 for 40 yards to get the team into the Wildcat's territory, but they had to settle for a Clayton Hatfield 39-yard field goal to take an early 3-0 lead.
