Good News, Bad News, and A Quest For Ideas…

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have good news and bad news…

First the bad news.  There has been a lot of stuff happening in the last few weeks.  Not only are all my electronic devices falling apart at the seams, but everyone in my family is getting sick and injured.  To make things worse, I am running out of resources to gather news.  So, unfortunately, I will no longer be able to devote this blog to news-related items.

Fortunately for me – and for you – it has been said that great minds think alike.  I happen to think some great minds picked up my idea and, fortunately, had more capital and more know-how to make things work.  Thus, Hunt County News was born.  I welcome all of you to visit their website and check it out.  Oh, and if you have a news tip, please let them know!

I do want to continue this blog; however, since news is out of the realm of possibilities, I’m looking for other ideas in moving forward.  Sheila says I should do trivia; however, I don’t think it would work out very well or last very long.  I want to do a lifestyle and entertainment blog; but the truth of the matter is that life in Hunt County is neither entertaining nor makes for a picture-perfect lifestyle.  Or, does it?

Either way, I would like for you to give me YOUR ideas as to what I should do in order to continue this blog.  I want to continue at some capacity or another; and I do want to make this one of the most visited websites in Hunt County, Texas.

If you have any ideas, feel free to shoot them out via e-mail or Facebook comment/message.

Thank you and good night!

The Blotter Will Be Back Next Week!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am happy to announce that the Hunt County Web Blotter will be back beginning this Monday.  My lovely partner, Sheila, just bought me a new tablet; so, now, updating the Blotter will be much easier.

Not only will I keep you all up to date on the day’s top stories;  I will also post breaking news, as well as items of interest.

Any ideas?  Don’t be afraid to let me know!

Have a great day!


What’s Going On in Hunt County – Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Good Evening Everyone!  I see things have been slow most everywhere in Hunt County – well, except for one place – Burger King!

From all the stuff I’ve seen on Facebook, the place was packed.  Some people said they felt for the people who had to work there, while others complained about waiting an hour and a half for their taste of a flame-broiled Whopper.  Others were comparing this location to the previous location, at 5006 Wesley and Joe Ramsey (now Smiley Dental) and said the same problems that caused that location to close would cause this one to close as well (I highly doubt that myself), but anyway – MOST people were glad NOT to drive to Rockwall or Sulphur Springs.

A group has plans to call for the introduction of a bill in the 84th Texas Legislature to create the Collin-Hunt Municipal Utility District (MUD) in advance of planning a major subdivision on 776 acres on the Hunt/Collin County line, near Josephine.  It appears that members of D. R. Horton’s family (yes, THAT D. R. Horton) are looking to build a complex of single-family houses out there.

In “dumb idiot from Quinlan” news, Bobby Joe Evens is seeking to represent himself in an upcoming trial.  He has multiple charges pending, from abandoning/endangering a child – criminal negligence – to operating a drug ring out of the Hunt County Jail, at which he currently sits.  He has pleaded not guilty to both charges – and he also has federal charges pending, the status of which is unknown as of Tuesday.

Finally, jury selection has begun in the trial of the Aurora, Colorado, “Dark Knight” shooter, James Holmes.  Holmes is accused of the murders of 12 people in a shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, including Rebecca “Becky” Hernandez Wingo, a 1997 graduate of Ford High School in Quinlan (back when they were using the current Thompson Middle School campus as the high school).  Wingo went straight to the Air Force after graduation, being stationed for two years in Hawaii before being reassigned to Aurora.  She still had family here in Hunt County at the time of the murder.

Before I forget, I’m looking for your horror stories involving Internet service with Tier One Converged Networks and Argon Technologies.  You can reach me at or fill out the contact form.  I would appreciate your input, as I myself have used Argon Tech before and am currently using Tier One – and have had nothing but problems out of both of them.

That’s all for now.  Hope y’all have a great night!
