The News is the Bomb!

June 30, 2008



I received a call about 11:30 Sunday stating that some had vandalized a news rack. I was a bit annoyed as I was up all night and was trying to get some sleep. I called the police who connected me to the officer on the scene.

“It looks like it was pried open and then set on fire.” The officer said.

I laughed.

He took more info from me like the value of the rack and then stated, “It looks as if it was a victim of a hate crime.”

I had to laugh again as that was about as funny thing I have heard in a long time.

Yet as it turns out, the business where the rack was, had been vandalized before.

Here are a couple of articles the first one is from a local T.V. station the second one from the Gazette where I work.

Now, when I arrived to pick it up, it looked to me like someone had placed a small explosive in it that blew out the bottom and the door the fell off. Inside you can see the burned papers.

It was funny yet also a bit unsettling to think someone would blow up a news rack because he or she hated the owner of the business because he is black. Billings had something like this happen a few years ago and the city stood up against it. I hope Billings will do that again.

Enjoy the pics though…

Blessings,

Please pray for the fire victims here in Billings

April 16, 2008
Last Sunday 25 people become homeless and lost everything due to a fire at an apartment here in Billings. One person died. This is tragic enough yet there is even greater sadness…

In an attempt to help and show support a local motel with a water slide opened its pool to the families so that their children could have some fun. One of the children drowned to death last night.

Please pray for these families, especially the one’s that lost their loved ones.

If you want to help please contact the Red Cross here is Billings.
