PoliceReport By Mike Lakin Officer Kyle Veech arrested a cooperative Mt. Pulaski resident on a county warrant for failure to appear on a DUI case that dates back to 2006. Four gauges were in the car one day and gone the next. The owner suspects a former room- mate of the deed. Officer Kyle Veech took the report. Mom and Dad were headed down 121 when their 16-year-old son went berserk in the back seat. They pulled into the police station and Officer Kyle Veecb went to assist. Officer Veech was met with a barrage of foul lan- guage. Kind of like the movie Exorcist. But without the spin- ning head. The berserk teen was cuffed and placed in the back- seat of Officer Veech's squad car where the teen began banging his head, spitting, and swear- ing. His mother calmly noted he didn't normally act that way. Mt. Pulaski EMS arrived and an empty pill bottle was found in the teen's possession. The teen was restrained on a stretcher and transported to Memorial Hospital, Springfield. After being released from the hospital, the teen was arrested by Christian County Deputies when he attempted to grab the steering wheel of the car and run the car off the road while his mother drove him home. Two high school students, a shove, a choke hold, and Chief Lynn Freer was called. The corn: batants have varying accounts of what transpired.

The Cell Phone vs Bible From Wally Kautz Ever wondered what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phones? What if we carried it around in our purse or pocket? What if we flipped through it several times a day? What if we turned back to get it if we forgot it? What if we used it to rece=ve 20 messages from the text? What if we treated it like we couldn't i live without it? What if we gave it to our ~ i., kids as gifts? ~ i What if we used it when we traveled? What if we used in case of an emer- t~ gency? 1 This is something to make you go,.. ~;~ i hmm.., where's my Bible'~ ~" i J And unlike our cell phone, we don't t~. j have to worry about our Bible being = :! disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill! BBQ Rules From Chuck Laughery Over the last several years, there has been many humorous stories and jokes submitted by Chuck. This was his last one, which became his final one. Women... it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sub- lime outdoor cooking activity. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the fol- lowing chaid of events are put into motion: Routine... (1) The woman buys the food. (2) The woman makes the salad, pre- pares the vegetables, and makes des- sert. (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand. (4) The woman remains outside the compulsory six-foot exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman. Here comes the im oortant part: (5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL. More routine... (6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery. (7) The woman comes out to tel the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat Important again: (8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN. More routine.., (9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table. (10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes. And most important of all: (11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts. (12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off' and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, con- cludes that there's just no pleasing some women! @ mill iI f r4 Female chickens, or hens, need about 24 to 26 hours to ;)reduce one egg. Thirty minutes later they start the process all over again. In addition to the half-hour rests, some hens rest every three to five days and others rest every 10 days.
