Okay everybody, I just asked my source (my best friend) if she had heard any more. She has not. Our local paper comes out every Wednesday and Friday, so hopefully there will be something in the paper tomorrow. I know your next question: Where in the world do you live that your newspaper only comes out twice a week? LOL !!!!
We have papers like that here too so don't worry. We have the big ones that are for the whole city (toronto) and then we have like community papers that come out on Wed. and Sundays. so don't feel bad. Yes let us know! Surprised not on the news yet.
My town very rarely makes the news either. They are always yammering on about DC or places closer to it. Not us country folk in Calvert County. Unless Jeb drives his tractor over 30 to the store to fetch some chaw. Then everyone is in an uproar!!!!!!!!!!
Still no word on what really happened. It wasn't in the papers. I will have to wait to hear it through the grapevine. My "grapevine" is in Disney right now, so I will have to wait until she returns. Sorry guys.
Wow Wendy, your town must be much bigger than the town I work in. We get the paper weekly here. (Wednesdays) If there is any new news we just go to the local bar, she is the town info center. She gets all the juicy stuff first.
That's about right Gbat. My best friend always knows all the gossip. My hubby says she is the mouth from the south. Not in a bad way, she just knows everyone and gets all the scoop. In fact, the people whose dog it was that got shot, own one of our local bars. Some of my other friends have been in the bar the last few days, but no one is talking. It's not a subject you want to bring up and ask, "Hey, did your dog get shot?" Apparently, they were devasted and they all have children who I think may have seen the whole thing. Not something you want to talk about over a beer just yet.
UPDATE: Finally, in this past Wednesday's paper there was an article about the man who shot the dog. It was pretty close to what I have already posted on another thread. (I couldn't find it though) Long story short - and this is all hearsay because we all know how the press can really change a story: Dog is running around neighborhood loose. Dog growls and supposingly charges a kid. Kids scream, Dad goes outside to see what's going on. Dog charges Dad. Dad goes back inside, gets .357 gun and starts shooting at the dog. Dog runs back to his own house. Dad follows dog in his car, shooting still. Dad gets out of car at dogs house and shoots it again, this time killing it. The man said he felt that his children were in danger. And his running around the neighborhood shooting a .357 wildly at a dog, isn't dangerous? What a frickin idiot. He was arrested for several different things. He will stand trial and may serve up to 5 years in jail.
