Making Room; Before and After

A City of Sulphur Springs crew makes short work of a derelict house at the corner of W Park and Church street Tuesday morning. The house was inspected before demolition, making sure no one was inside.  During the demolition, the track-hoe operator separates ferrous and non-ferrous metals out for recycling.  Tires and other items not allowed in the landfill near Commerce, TX are also sorted. Other ‘volunteer’ recyclers...

A Mighty Oak From an Acorn Grows

  A tree removal crew out of Lone Oak, TX takes on a partially dead oak in Sulphur Springs Monday morning.  Recent rain did not prevent the project taking place.  A Foreman on site told KSST that the Homeowner paid for the removal.  Several stumps left by other services line the block. The power lines in the pictures are live.  The entire truck is insulated against shock. The crew stayed away from the high voltage lines atop the...

That Can’t Be Safe

A billboard along I-30 Westbound, near the Outlet Mall in Sulphur Springs, was getting some work done Friday. A two man crew welds a metal frame 60 feet off the ground. A “Tombstone” type stick welder was hoisted to the catwalk, a generator roars below. No use of safety equipment could be seen. 20170113_131748 20170113_133634 20170113_133645 20170113_133741 20170113_133748 20170113_133953 20170113_133958 20170113_134011...

Listen up Scammers!

I have developed a sort of relationship with a group of credit card thieves over the past year or so.  I have long ago given up con blocking their numbers, now I try to take their calls.  I figure if I can keep them on the line for 5 minutes, that keeps them from reaching someone susceptible.  It goes without saying, don’t try this at home. If you suspect credit card fraud contact the Federal Trade Commission. They have the...

El Vaquero in Sulphur Springs

I finally did it, I got some El Vaquero today.  It’s not that I was scared, but I was never sure how the process worked.  Do you park and walk up?  Do you order then wait for someone to bring it out?  Is there a place to go in and order?  Do they take credit cards? I didn’t want to look like an idiot…  Gentle readers, gather around the dim flicker of your screen and I will give you the details…. Here’s...

New ‘No Left Turn’ Sign Taken Out

A vehicle and its driver took exception to the newly installed No Left Turn Sign positioned at I-30 and Highway 19.  The south bound driver decided to turn left across traffic, mowing down the signpole.  This maneuver was possible months ago, but now the left turn signal is covered, and the left turn lane eliminated. The driver fled the scene. A picture of the damaged vehicle including the front licence plate was taken and submitted...
