More Dead Bodies

Comments: 2 Comments
Published on: 2005.03.30

As if it wasn’t bad enough, attending the third day of a murder trial, I spent my lunch break watching firefighters pull two dead folks out of a pickup that crashed two days ago. The murder trial is that of Christina Townsend, accused by prosecutors of causing a 2-year-old girl’s death with scalding water burns.[…]

Two days of the Christina Townsend murder trial are behind me, but I already feel as though I’ve missed sleep for a week. I’ve heard enough evidence to make a lawyer go cross-eyed. Did she do it? How the hell should I know? I’m just a reporter, for God’s sake. See my stories in The[…]

Zhivago Nights

(I had a longer entry here, but my ****ing computer crashed. Probably a good thing.) Watched Dr. Zhivago for the first time tonight (though I’m a student of Russian history, and actually took 2 years of the language in college, I’d never seen this classic before.) It was obvious why it was a classic. Based[…]

So Nice

So nice, so nice. Everything is fine with me. Bright stars are shining behind the thunderous storm clouds and the moon shines down on other places in the world. I am at peace. The music flows through me. Moves me. Engages my soul in a dialog. Relaxing. Sleeping. Yes. It really is “all good.”

Tonight was refreshing for me. I got a call from a cousin that I hadn’t talked to in years. She and I used to be the best of friends, when we were children and as teenagers. Back then, we shared everything, all our secrets, our problems, our dreams and hopes for the future. Now, we’re[…]

I Need A New Drug

Back in my day, some weird-ass rock group sang, “I need a new drug.” I can’t agree, but I do need a new source of energy. I’m just drained, fatigued, and exhausted. Trying to guess the reasons, I’m blaming part of it on basketball season — Not only did I work about 45 hours a[…]

Changing a Newspaper

Another day, another 14 cents. The newspaper business is surprisingly resistant to change. I’ve been learning this over the last few years, as I’ve tried to incorporate things I’ve learned at seminars and workshops… but the folks “higher up” are very conservative when it comes to making changes in the paper, no matter how liberal[…]

Want Sleep

I spent all day yesterday making firewood for my grandmother (for next year). My brother and I began by cutting down about 20 large trees, and then trimming them of brush and small twigs. All of this mess we had to drag off into brush piles (of which we made several). Then we cut the[…]

15 Years

I just realized, this very day, that this year will be my FIFTEENTH year out of high school. I know, I graduated when some of you were three years old. It makes me tired, and … well, not quite sad. I would be sad, if these 15 years hadn’t been so productive. I’ve wasted a[…]

Quarterback

A prediction: My nephew, Josh (pictured below) will be the starting quarterback for Seminole High School in 2016 A.D. I took this pic today. He’s only six, and can already throw the ball 25 yards with exasperating accuracy. (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

This is me, taking another self-portrait, since no one else is around to model while I test my skill on the camera. (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Yes, I shaved the goatee. Oh well.

Been going to a lot of wrecks & fires this weekend. Here is the wreck on US 270 (between Seminole & Wewoka) on Sunday night. (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

As the story developed, I became less frustrated with police, especially after confronting the sheriff’s office with the dishonesty. I must give Sheriff Joe Craig credit – he always tries to patch these things up (because he’s an elected official?). Since my last entry, he’s been very helpful. In fact, we’ve been the only news[…]

Today, two people died in a house fire south of Bowlegs (in the Wolf area). I was allowed to take pictures of the site, by the Sheriff himself, but denied any information about the fire, or deaths themselves, even after the next-of-kin had been notified. Then later, when police around the county were chasing two[…]

I got to leave work 1 1/2 hours early today, to make up for the 7 hours I worked on Monday (my day off). Oh, and I worked through lunch yesterday. So the extra hour and a half didn’t quite feel special. But, my boss got a new photo scanner for my desk today, and[…]

All-Star Game

Published on: 2005.03.01

The all-star game tonight was total proof that basketball is a team sport. Though everyone on the floor was talented in the sport, there were many mistakes because the athletes aren’t used to playing with each other. I’d much rather see a tight-knit team of half-talented people than a composite team of the best, who[…]
