Sanders Talks About Football Season Being Only Four Games Long. Deion Sanders’ Prime Prep Academy has faced scrutiny since day one. On Friday, the District 11 3A voted to not play football against the school. The district says Prime Prep doesn’t have enough varsity players. One student said that kids are teasing him for this shortened season. In the most uncreative taunt ever, the kids are saying, “four games, four games.” Watch how Sanders defends his academy. He’s got some quotes that could give those taunters a run for their money.
More Details Emerge on Woman’s 911 Call. As details emerge, this situation that Tim wrote about yesterday is not looking any better. Those who heard the 11-minute 911 call say they can hear Deanna Cook dying. But officers took their time in responding (answering an unrelated burglar alarm first) and then turned away when no one answered the door. Also, when the family tried to enter the house and no one answered, they again called 911. They were told that since no one answered the door during the last time cops were sent out, they’d have to call all the hospitals and jails in the area first to look for Cook. The family decided to break in. That’s when they found Cook dead. The call center operator defended her work to the Morning News.
Investigation of Death of White Buffalo Closed. In a strange turn of events, the investigation into the death of the sacred white buffalo, Lightning Medicine Cloud, has been closed. The sheriff said that the buffalo was buried for three days and that it had actually been dead for six days before the department got a call. It was concluded that the buffalo (whose owner, Arby Little Soldier, said had been skinned) died of a bacterial disease called black leg. The case can be reopened if new information becomes available.
Volunteers Paint Trees to Deter Beavers. It took 20 volunteers two hours and $700 to paint a sand mixture on 40 trees to try to keep beavers fromÂ gnawingÂ on the wood. A family of just four to six beavers is wreaking havoc on the trees in the area east of White Rock Lake. Too bad we can’t do beaver spraying.
