|The Story||Maria Limon was gunned down
outside of the Hot Skillet Restaurant in Alvord. The suspected shooter
fled on foot and remains at large.
|News worthiness (1 to 5)
|The Spin||Fled on foot? And still not
found? That's insane.
|The Story||I resolve for this New Year to
never point out typographical errors in the Messenger.
|The Spin||Resolution broken.|
|The Story||Rhome begins its traffic camera
program - the dumbest idea in the city's history - by issuing 90
warning tickets in one day.
|The Spin||90! If that is any indication of
the number of tickets this program will issue, get ready for the Wrath
of The Media to roll into Rhome within the month. (And a little math:
90 a day at 30 days a month = 2700 tickets. Average fine of $150 will
reap $405,000 a month and $4.8 million a year.) What a disaster.
|The Story||Someone with a stolen Chevy Tahoe
runs into a bank in Boyd in an effort to dislodge the bank's ATM.
|The Spin||The bank is pursing all
available remedies to collect the $1.50 service fee.
||The Messenger, while oddly foregoing
annual Top Ten Stories list, prints
some "fun facts" from 2006 including: 425 marriage records filed in the
county and 391 divorces filed.
|The Spin||That's almost enough to make
me want to bring back the Illegitimate Birth Count last printed at the
bottom of the page here.
(That was 1/3 of all births, by the way.)
