Quote of the week: "Personal responsibility is a difficult thing to ask for in a nation which has attempted to find a societal 'root cause' for all things." - Shapley R. Hunter, 1992
Tuesday, July 30:
A Lunkhead from Lakehills was briefly incarcerated, charged with felony burglary of a habitat - that's house to you and me.
A Bandera Bad Girl - at the age of 62, certainly old enough to know better - apparently bounced a rubber check.
Not only was a Bodacious Bandera Babe being dogged by a misdemeanor failure-to-appear warrant, she also failed to renew her driver's license before tooling merrily along the highways and byways of Bandera County.
A warrant from an outside agency put the skids on the good times of a Hellion from Harper, who was hauled off to the hoosegow - where he remains - for his previous transgression.
A Lakehills Laddie abused a credit card and now remains confined to the county can for his thoughtlessness.
Okay, a couple of Pipe Creek Pips spent a night in the calaboose, courtesy of the county taxpayers, after being nabbed for two failure-to-appear misdemeanors and having neither liability insurance nor a driver's license.

After assaulting someone by threat, a Hick from Lakehills found herself behind bars for a probably too-short time.
An 18-year-old well-brought-up local lady yokel has started out life right by being charged with felony possession of a PG 1 controlled substance, as well as possession of injection paraphernalia.
Yet another Bandera Blockhead, who might have been the above booby's cohort in crime, was booked for felony possession of a PG 1 controlled substance and for misdemeanor possession of injection paraphernalia, in addition to possession of another kind of dangerous drug and for - oh, say it ain't so! - driving without a license. Well, with all those self-medications in one's system, who can remember to apply for a license and take that time-consuming test?

A denizen of the Creek District found himself afoul of the law after being picked up due to two felony warrants from an outside agency.
