The Best News That We Didn’t Report This Week

By: Jordan Owens

Here are some of the stories that we DIDN’T report this week. Not because we failed as news reporters, but because these stories failed to be “news worthy.”


For the record…

-Cumby police responded to a call on Depot Street around 10:23 p.m. Saturday, July 4th. A man was reportedly “laying partially in the roadway intoxicated.” The 46-year-old Kingston man was arrested for public intoxication. He was released from jail Sunday after paying $180 of the $280 fine. Let’s hope they get the rest of that money…

-Theft of an Echo weed-eater was reported on State Highway 11 West in Ridgeway on Saturday. Yep.

-A one-month-old black calf was reported lost from County Road 2327 in Como on Saturday. We’re assuming he’s been found. If not, let us know and we’ll put it on the Trading Post.

-A man was reported for harassing individuals at a rest stop in Saltillo on Saturday. Isn’t there an adult novelty store near that rest stop? I guess he got tired of hanging out there.

-Police received a 911 call around 5:09 p.m. Saturday from someone reporting a female in a pickup repeatedly hitting her head on her car horn on South Broadway Street. Poor lady must have had a rough day. Or traffic was unbearable.

-Kids were reported shooting fireworks somewhere off State Highway 154 South at 9:11 p.m. on Saturday, JULY THE FOURTH. Isn’t that typical for Independence Day? I digress. They were also spooking horses. Darn kids!

-Deputies responded to a call on FM 71 in Nelta on Sunday. A 20-year-old was reportedly throwing household objects into a pasture. Temper tantrum much?

-Loud arguing between a couple was reported on County Road 4287 around 12:34 a.m. on Monday. (see below)

-A disturbance between a girlfriend and boyfriend was reported on Country Road 4131 in the Cumby area around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday. I wonder if they are related to the previously mentioned couple?


And that’s the news that failed to make the news this week.
