10/4/2012 by Sheriff Ralph Billings
Sheriff?s Report Number 613- Loose horses, FM-489, ran off road by caller. Lady reports car just taken without permission at Freestone Apts., all officers alerted, but 13 minutes and 5 seconds later all were told to disregard the call?.he dropped it off at caller?s Mother?s house. Elderly Lady on FCR-231, sick, ill, FEMS enroute. Man turns self in at jail on Hot Checkin? Warrant. Inmate arrested a few days ago by Teague scuffles and fights with Jailer and Deputy while being booked, one employee bit, checked out at ER. Later apologized for his shenanigans?.and then asked that it all just basically be forgotten. I appreciate his first thought, but after one bite, trips to the ER, causing a huge commotion, a few shots of Pepper Spray, etc., well, just don?t think we?ll be able to forgive and forget totally. Sometimes it is easy to forgive?..but far harder to forget.

I heard of a group of local men who went out of County very recently to hunt dove?..I am not exactly certain of the names of those involved?..But will tell what I know?It seems their party was three in number and the hunting was dragging at one particular location so two decided that they would change locations to another portion of the property, to either continue hunting their elusive prey?.or wet their hook in a large pool of water that seemed particularly inviting?..but now, Fast Forward to the return of our two back to their still on site other Hunting Buddy, the one who had stayed on post and had not altered his plans?..All was well until one of the two whom had left the scene for a few hours got to picking up and retrieving his dove decoys that he had placed around several hours prior on likely looking tree limbs, fence wires, etc??He was one short!! He searched and looked, knew exactly how many that he originally had??Nothing to do but look again much closer?.And it was on this second search that success smiled down on his endeavor?..well, that is to say, at least he found the place where he had stuck the decoy?..and, furthermore, he did find his decoy?..or at least most of what was left initially when he had set them up, and were last seen by him??But it seems that our steadfast hunter, the one who had opted not to change locations or alter his own particular plans and scheme?..He had fired one full load of birdshot into the decoy, thinking that it was a live bird! Of course, there was no end to the verbal harangue that followed on the return trip back to our County, two against one! Now, let us once again fast forward to a few days after their return??. when our intrepid Dove Decoy Executioner walked into a local eatery?..And unknown to him of the following arrangement, a white Styrofoam compartmented dinner tray was immediately set before him by a staffer, napkin and silverware on the side, top piece neatly folded over with both tabs properly tucked in??and upon lifting the lid away, probably hoping for fresh, hot biscuits well lathered with white gravy, viewed the remaining carcass and pieces of that previously shot and prepared Dove Decoy! Ready once again for his pleasure. We will now take our leave of this Mighty Big Game Hunter and his stalwart cohorts, his rock steady aim and their pride damaging words?..And return once again to the normal business at hand??
