By Kenny Mitchell

Publisher

A DeKalb High School student was arrested and will face felony charges after a social media post led school officials and the local police to the discovery of a loaded handgun inside a classroom full of students.

Just after 2 p.m. on Monday, DeKalb High principal Neilan Hensley notified campus officer Rick Ricketts that he believed a student was carrying a gun on campus, after he was shown a photograph that had been posted on the students Snapchat account. Officer Ricketts identified the clothing in the photograph as the same clothing the student was wearing that day and called the DeKalb Police Department Officer Chris Atkinson for backup.

Former JP clerk booked for theft of county funds

According to a press relase issued by the Bowie County Sheriff's Office, on April 10, 2015 Judge Steven Young contacted the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office and filed a theft report with Investigator Robby McCarver.

Residents of a Hooks neighborhood woke up again this morning to raw sewage running into their yards and down the street as the recent rains have become too much for the city’s outdated sewer system.

One resident, Kathy Hillis, whose home is located at 20 Lacey Street, has taken to social media to broadcast the problem after what she calls repeated requests for help. After going to the city council on multiple occasions to address the issue, Hillis posted a video to her Facebook page this week showing the raw sewage spewing into the yard and down the street in front of her home.
