THERE”S COPPER IN THEM THERE HILLS:
NEW YORK (AP) — The Long Island Rail Road says service is back on track after delays caused by vandals who stripped copper wire from an electrical connection in Queens. LIRR spokesman Sal Arena says 43 trains were delayed Friday morning by up to 20 minutes. Steel rails are still too heavy to lift.

IT’S SCIENCE:
LONDON, ENGLAND - In news that is hardly surprising, a UK survey has found most single men only change their sheets every three months. Oddley enough, this is also about the length of time between dates of the average single man.

KEEP SMILEING, DAMMIT:
Ten workers at a Southern California warehouse say they were recently suspended indefinitely without pay for taking a five-minute heat break with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees. The workers are employed at Olivet International Mira Loma warehouse, which supplies Walmart, and said they were targeted for raising concerns about the working conditions during the past few months. The rates for the pay toilets are just outrageous.




From time to time, we have to ask the public the hard hitting, serious news questions. We present:
The Dinglewood Times Strippers Poll


wHAT IS THE PUBLIC OPINION OF THE BEAUMONT INDEPENDANT SCHOOL DISTRICT?
74% - They're like family... like the Kardashians!

54% - As educational as Apple Pie.

44% - Should be forced to eat in the Westbrook Cafeteria every Thursday.

34% - They are covering up a lot of secret contracts, selling sodas in the teachers lounge.

24% - they should have their own reality TV series.






DOUBLE STUF OREOS MAY BE A LIE:
According to a math teacher’s calculations, a sample yielded only 1.86 times as much filling between the chocolatey wafers, not “double.” It turns out to be about 1.86% Stuf… maybe .14% belongs to the IRS.

AND YOU THOUGHT MINIMUM WAGE WAS A KILLER:
Bank of America has confirmed that the "highly diligent intern" Moritz Erhardt passed away just before completing his summer program in London after allegedly working 72 hours straight. His survivors received half a point of college credit.

GASTRIC DELIGHTS:
TOKYO: In Western countries, they say that “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Oddly enough, Japan uses the similar phrase: “Otoko gokoro wo tsukamu ni wa ibukuro kara,” or “you can snatch a man’s heart if you start with his stomach.” This was also the sign on the Adult Novelties Shop on Interstate 10…

THE ONCE AND FUTURE GREENIE:
BEAUMONT: The South Park Heritage Association has pieced together a collection of Greenies memorabilia in a new museum at 505 W. Florida Avenue. The exhibit is made up solely on donations from past South Park High School graduates. The B.I.S.D. could not be reached for comment, but did offer to send a pan of cornbread for the grand opening.

BIG MONEY KEEP ON ROLLIN’:
WASHINGTON – Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the non-profit’s tax forms reveal. The web of foundations run by the former president spent an eye-opening $12.1 million on travel in 2011 alone, according to an internal audit conducted by foundation accountants. That’s enough to by 12,000 air tickets costing $1,000 each, or 33 air tickets each day of the year. We’re guessing that he’s not driving around in a Toyota Corolla.




THIS JUST IN: You're house pet may be planning your DEATH! This news story could SAVE YOUR LIFE!!! [FULL STORY]




BEAUMONT, TEXAS – The economic crunch is starting to show in southeast Texas in some of the smaller venues in our area. Indeed from long lines waiting for medicine in the pharmacies and check out lines in stores due to a lower number of available checkers and pharmacists to stale buns and re-warmed food in our local restaurants, the new economy is showing signs. Even the local media is having a few cracks in the iron. As a “trickle-down-crunch” goes, many local radio stations depend on news from the local newspapers and news sources, while the local news papers and news sources depend on news from the local and regional television stations. The local and regional television stations depend on news from large national sources and large national sources depend on news from large resource research groups throughout the country. Many if not most all of the large resource research groups are owned by corporations with deep pockets who can fund research, studies, and opinion polls that influence public opinion and product management. In short, In order to avoid the pitfalls of excess thinking, commercial media advises us to go buy something and spend money we don’t have and some local outlets have a tendency to interpret this as news. Messages such as

“Stimulus check – Buy a new car - Bad economy”

“Tax Refund – 56 inch HDTV – Hurricane Recovery”

“Britney’s New Album – Get Approved Credit – 2000 Laid off”

offer a mixed concept of what is considered “news”. More on this story as it develops.




ROSE CITY, TEXAS - A bit of dust has settled from the current economic crunch at the Dinglewood Times. Lay offs include 5 of our four staff writers and contract finalization of El Crappel Internta~, our outsourced Internet Content Provider. Sales has also been downsized, letting go 4 of our three sales offices. On a positive note, we have bought one (1) box of Mardi Gras beads to be given out to all remaining sponsers in lew of their continued support. To compensate for lost revenue, we will now have to charge our remaining staff for use of our facilities. Paper towles and tissues can now be purchsed in the kitchen for a dollar each. Thanks! More on this story as it develops.




From time to time, we have to ask the public the hard hitting, serious news questions. We present:
The Dinglewood Times Strippers Poll


Would you be effected by the Postal Service if mail delivery stoped on Saturday?
61% - No

41% - Yes

31% - Less junk mail to burn for heat

LOCAL MEDIA LOCO
ROSE CITY, TEXAS – Radio station KOOK is still on the air, but listenership is down. Since the layoff of 2011, the station has a much smaller staff, consisting of one sales person, one radio announcer, and five managers. Johnny “Red” Hass has been the announcer at KOOK for over eight years and has an interesting history in broadcasting. In a recent interview, he stated, “Since the layoffs, we’ve been automated so all the phones are on hold and we only take requests on the email now. I record my breaks for about twelve hours and the rest of the time, we let the computer take over”. “You’ve got to drive people to the website”, says Dave McKnobb, Manager of Web Marketing. “The Internet is the future of Radio. People will pay for radio by paying for bandwidth. That way, they also pay for advertising, spam, and bloatware in order to hear the station over the radio. It’s a win-win for everybody!” Red was also telling us about breakdowns that happen in the radio industry, “It’s a bit like we did on the ‘70’s… bits of wire, duct tape and prayer”.




TIPS ON TIPPING
BEAUMONT, TEXAS – According to a recent survey, the average customer to a fancy sit down restaurant is tipping less these days. James Hognutt is a professional waiter has been a career waiter for over five years. According to James, “This economy is just not letting folks tip in a fair and equitable way. For example, I’m fifty eight years old and I am not making nearly as much as Jenny, our waitress. On average, she makes about eleven dollars more a day in tip than I do.”. Jenny Hotness, twenty four, has only been on the job for a year. “Yea, it happens”, according to Jenny. “I think he is just counting the cash – I’m not telling him about the gold watch and new car…”. On average, the regular customer tips about 15 percent of the full amount of the bill, but the truth is, not everybody tips. Or should. The following is a list of reasons from our research department that may result in no tip:

  • The glass was not filled.
  • Waitstaff did not pick up empty dishes from previous customers.
  • Children removed tip from table before waitstaff arrived.
  • Service was poor.
  • Customer left invisible money.
  • Customer is deceased.
  • Wild birds mistook tip for nest building materials.
  • Tip was vaporized by alien death ray.
  • Tip was mistakenly eaten by obese customers.




    IRREVERENT REVEREND RANTS
    JEFFERSON COUNTY, TEXAS – The Reverend Jimmy Giggem was not happy, Sunday morning preaching to congregation. Seemingly, the majority of his ire was from the week beforehand in dealing with recent elections. Several races were highly contested, included Reverend Giggem bid for city counsel. “I personally believe that the general population is nothing but sheep being led by the nose to the nearest shopping mall. It has become very apparent to me and my constituents that our brand of leadership and guidance is not appreciated or wanted. Later, Reverend Giggem could not be reached for comment.




    Fear and Loathing in Beaumont Texas: Part 1
    By Hunter S. Dinglewood

    Gentle reader, I will take you on odyssey of rants and quips and please for the love of all that is holy, if any scrap of this terse tensile text strikes any part of your Jersey Shore addled mind – for God sakes don’t tell anybody. Somehow I sit here and stare at myself in disbelief. How did it come to this? Our town, out state, our country – how did it come to this? Jobs are disappearing faster than free cheesecake samples at a weight watchers convention. Wall Street gladly took our money and didn’t even buy us breakfast the next morning. A big juicy bailout for your bank but where is your paycheck for the electric bill? Did we get rid of these jobs and errands with our dreams of a great society? Great for who? If you can’t work, you can’t eat? We are designed by the big architect himself or herself to run our sad sack like bodies on nutrients. Nutrients that we ourselves have priced beyond our own means. Dammit man, it’s damn bootstrap time! Sink or swim! Don’t depend on the government teat for your feeds. Waiting for a group of people to make a decision for you is like counting flies on the back of a turd, only the catch is you’d be lucky if they let you keep that turd to take home as a bonus.

    When was the last time you heard someone using the word bonus to describe anything Christmas or paycheck related. So that’s it. Desperation in the air. Government pork getting porkyier and the uppercrust finally noticing that the help isn’t as grateful for the minimum wage as they used to be. Sit deep, old sod – we are preparing for a bumpy ride.

    I turned twenty one when my old man kicked me out of the house to make my way in the world. I had a car that ran and thirty three dollars in my pocket – of which, I used ten for gas, three for a meal, and five for a blanket because I knew the back seat, where I was going to sleep for the next couple of nights, was going to a little rough. But you know, I made it. I got a job, I got a check, I got some cash. It’s the golden green paper that makes the damn world go round. I woke up one morning to the sound of someone popping my trunk with a crowbar, in hope there was something of value the could snag for a quick buck. No luck, Johnny – all you’re gonna; get is a face full right fist and dirty boot forcibly placed up your back side. Do you think he learned not to mess the man who was permanently pissed off at the world that day? Not a chance, buttercup. Johnny gotta’ eat, too. If you don’t have a marketable skill, then you try to market whatever skill you’ve got. He got a limp, I got a broken finger. I wasn’t even late for work.
