My Soapbox of the Day... Ya know, as if it wasn't bad enough, but Clock Boy, remember, the kid who "built a clock" and is considered a "highly intelligent genius" by the adoring liberal media? Yeah, that kid, the one who took a store bought clock out of it's case and put it in a box and made it look like a bomb then intentionally caused trouble at school. After a whirlwind tour of being wined and dined and treated like a celebrity (including a personal invitation to the White House from our genius president), Clock Boy now has the audacity to demand a written apology from the City of Irving, Texas and is now suing the City of Irving for fifteen million dollars. What eats my lunch about the embarrassing, ridiculous situation is that I'm convinced that the incorrigible little POS did the whole thing on purpose. His dad is a known islamic extremist sympathizer. Every time Clock Boy talks to the fawning media, Clock Boy has a stupid grin of his face. It's like he's thinking, "Wow!"..."I can't believe how stupid these people are!". So the indoctrinated future terrorist thinks, "Hey, if they're this stupid, why stop now?". "Let's see how much money I can get out of these people!". And to think that Obama invited this little troublemaker to the white house. Never mind that his clock invention is a proven fraud. Never mind that he started trouble on purpose and deserves to be punished. What in the H is wrong with our country? How did we reelect a president that is so destructive to our nation?
Being that this is Thanksgiving week, Court Appointed Special Advocates, (CASA) of the Pines would like to take a moment to thank our communities for almost 20 years of being able to give to the abused and neglected children in foster care.At the beginning of 1996, CASA of the Pines began as a shared vision among a small group of community ladies.Never did they know that their legacy and hard work would be the catalyst for a program that now serves 3 counties, and presently, over 250 children (CLICK HERE FOR MORE)

Driver Slams 18 Wheeler, Nobody Injured, SODA, November 18, 2015 - At approximately 4:30 pm on November 18, 2015, the driver of a black 1995 Mazda 929 was east-bound on US-190 East. The driver failed to notice an 18 wheeler in front of him that had stopped for a stopped school bus. The car slammed into the passenger's side of the 18 wheeler. The car was totaled, and the impact caused a diesel leak. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, Deputy Jacob Hopper with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Zach Lenderman, Darwon Evans and Sergeant Sam Lattner with the Texas Highway Patrol. Fortunately, nobody was injured. The impressive thing is how the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department took what was shaping up into an environmental hazard and nipped it in the bud. The diesel was leaking hard and fast. Chief Corky Cochran put an absorbent device in the path of the diesel flow, then used a putty called Petro Seal to stop the leaking. The next thing the firemen did was use kitty litter to absorb and clean up the diesel that was spilled onto the pavement. The driver of the car was cited for failure to control speed. The car was towed by Fawbush Body Shop and will be stored in Goodrich. The 18 wheeler was recovered by a heavy duty wrecker from outside of Polk County.
SHOCKING: What you are about to see is illegal in Paris. A hidden camera shows streets blocked by huge crowds of Muslim worshipers and enforced by a private security force. The police were ordered not to intervene. Muslims "are blocking the streets with barriers. They are praying on the ground. And the inhabitants of this district cannot leave their homes, nor go into their homes during those prayers." An ordinary French citizen who has been watching the Islamization of Paris decided that the world needed to see what was happening to his city. He used a hidden camera to start posting videos on YouTube. But his life has been threatened and so he uses the alias of "Maxime Lepante. " Even though some in the French government want to get tough with Muslims and ban the burqa, other parts of the French government continue to give Islam a privileged status. http://go.cbn.com/2797** This story was originally published September 1, 2010.

New Lows From the Left...
November 6, 2015 - Wow. Welcome to today's USA. Today we live in a USA where people thumb their nose at the law. Black Lives Matter calls for the dead bodies of our nation's law enforcement. President Obama is allegedly welcoming muslim "refugees" (mostly military aged muslim men) into our nation by the thousands. Hillary is fanning the flames of racism, sexism, and doing her very best to divide up America by class and every other way that she can think of to divide us as a nation. It's her effort to scare people into voting for her so that she can become our nation's next president. A couple of days ago, a video was released attacking Donald Trump because Trump is in favor of enforcing our nation's immigration laws, and securing our borders. Particularly the southern border. The left is stooping so low that they're now taking kids, coaching them to use extreme profanity, and brainwashing them (CLICK HERE FOR MORE)

CRIME STOPPERS PAYS CA$H REWARDS!
The U.S. Marshal’s Service, Angelina County Sheriff’s Office, and Diboll Police Department are looking for Raul Abraham Claudio (Claudio-Reyna).
Raul Claudio is a 25-year-old Hispanic male who stands 5 feet, 06 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. He is wanted on a second degree felony warrant for the offense of Indecency with a Child by Sexual Contact.
April 2014, a Diboll Police Department investigation found that Claudio had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl. Claudio was arrested for indecency with a child but a bond was posted and he was released from jail. The warrant Claudio is wanted for now was issued when he failed to appear for court.
Claudio has connections to Angelina and Polk counties and Monterrey, Mexico and officers have contacted many of his friends and family but his current location has not been revealed. An investigator involved in the search warned that helping Claudio avoid arrest might qualify as a felony crime.
The listed warrant information was correct and current when published but may no longer be current or correct when read. Warrants and charges must be verified before arrest. NEVER attempt to apprehend any suspect yourself; doing so may be dangerous and Crime Stoppers will not pay a reward to anyone involved in such action.
If you know the current location of Raul Abraham Caludio, call Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or submit a tip online at www.DETCS.tips. Crime Stoppers calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to Caludio’s arrest.

The Corrigan-Camden Bulldogs...
Last night the Corrigan-Camden Bulldogs trounced the Deweyville Pirates in Corrigan. The Dogs routed the Pirates 58 to 7. Only problem is, they moved the time up from 7:30 pm to 6 pm in anticipation of rain. So when we showed up at the game, it was halfway over. No highlight reel. No pictures. It would've been nice if someone from the staff at CCISD informed us of the change. When we cover a game, we cover it like nobody else. Maybe it's not a big deal to them? At any rate, the win puts the Dogs into the post season. Way to go Dogs!

A property owner was burning some trash and, due to dry conditions, the fire got out of control and spread to the neighbor's property. The firemen were able to extinguish the blaze quickly before it turned into a major forest fire.
About burning: Even though the burn ban has been lifted, due to the dry conditions, when we had rain recently, the dry land quickly absorbed the water and ultimately, conditions are still very dry and easily flamable.
Remember what Scenic Loop Fire Chief Donald Marlow says:
If you're going to burn...
• Only burn trash that is legal to burn
• Stay with your fire
• Keep a water hose ready and nearby
• Don't burn if winds are strong
• Rake leaves and other debris that could catch firer away before you start burning
