5 big stories you may not have seen in the AJ last week

Hey guys! Happy Mondays!

We’re hoping to help you start off the new week informed by looking back at some of the biggest news you may have missed.

Last week, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal shared 128 articles in print and across our website, and we understand that some of our best work can easily slip by our readers.

Covering everything from the Texas Tech’s homecoming win and the UIL Region 16 marching band contest to horse and burro adoptions, the AJ told a lot of big stories.

We get it! It’s hard to read them all — but we want to ensure our readers have every opportunity to stay informed.
