Channel 11 Finds New Towns In Wise County


Saw this today. (Kind of hard to see but there's a Rickels, Draco, and Lucky Ridge. And the town of Bluett is also wrong, isn't it?)

Actually, there was a community called "Bluett." Voting boxes used to be placed out there during election times. Not sure about those other communities tho.

I have been to Draco and Lucky Ridge. A historian must have messed with the map. These are small towns that used to be and the old timers still call the area by that name. They are accurately located also.

That should be Blewett community,which has now been sucked in by "New Fairveiw".

That "Lucky Ridge" is what we natives used to call "Hippie Ridge" back in the 70's and 80's.

My grandmother told me stories about the Draco community. I believe Draco was the town before the railroad came to Paradise and people moved closer to the train. I think one of the first schools in the area was at Draco. Interesting-Like a weather watcher from the past came back to report from the towns of years past.:)

YYYYYYYYYYYeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeHHHHHHHHHhaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!
I love blewett! Cause it reminds me of "Blewett Up"! That was one of the callings of our Right Wing HERO, Tim McVeigh. All good Republicans and "Right of Atilla the Hun Types" know this. And To test how loyal a Fellow Right Winger is or if they are just a lib in disguise, I always ask if Tim McVeigh was right or left of Atilla the Hun, and where do you
stand compared to Tim. If they are not at least on the same level or to the Right, well, they must be Librul. How us right wingers love Blewett talk! Right Wing Blewett Up talk is God's punishment for sinners. In
fact, he, Tim McVeigh, really did practice Blewett up. He loved Rush just like me, but damn it all, he is now in Right Wing Heaven, singing them Patriotic Right Wing Songs with Jesus and them left wingless Angels. Singing songs like Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be An American", "where we
can still buy explosives, and Blewett up, Git those mean Liberals down, and beat them to a pulp", or the words are something like like that when properly translated by Mark Davis or Fox or Chris Wallace. Some feller said sumthin about me painting something with a broad brush, but shucks,
have not painted anything in the last coupla years but the barn, and I sure as hell did not use a broad brush. I used a roller cause it was faster, and I was able to get back to keeping folKs (acutally RiffRaff Liberal Trash) I don't want on my property and so forth. Those of that there "orantashun" damn sure better clear my place by a couple of miles, or more. And the mention of Me not liking cutting out funding for
healthcare and so forth for them that are not citizens by the
commissioners...........What are commissioners anyway? Don't know
anything about any of this. Do know when somebody dirt dog gits on my place that should not be here.....and when they are not welcome and trespassing..........well......Blewett all to Hell!!!
HeeHawwwww!!! God Loves Richard Nixen!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the Bush Family!!!!!

After reading the last post I feel like the unibomber is still around and maybe living in Blewett or somethin.

Now every time I hear a loud noise it makes me cry.

HHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAA!!!!
10:53, Don't Cry! I can tell you are a Right Winger and you are safe in this Red county and you should be proud of it. You may have forgot, The Right Wing Repuglican Right Of Atilla the Hun really loves you lots. WE just want to git rid of undesirables, not good Conservatives like you. But, The Unibomber, he seemed like he was Conservative, so don't fret so much. Conservatives like us don't like any progressive thinking or such stuff, go unibomber in the name of CONSERVATISION!!!!!!!!
The Unibomber is just a typical Conservative. May he be free someday to continue his valued Conservative Work.

Blewitt Community fire hall is located at 317 Private Road 4523 and voters still vote there.

The history of Wise County and all the small communities is very interesting.

Hope your keeping record of 11:24 and 10:24's comments. Bet the Homeland Defense would like to read them. (JERK!) Hope they zap you!

Well Ol' commenter 9:34,
It's homeland security, you p1$$head, not homeland defense. It's 10:24 and 11:34, git it right. It's "you're as in you are", not your. If you
hope/want somebody zapped over something as stupid as these stupid, silly, sarcastic, comment ramblings, going from radical conservatism to full fledged right-wing NAZI "pull them out of their house and shoot'em in the middle of the night" thing must be your cup of tea, or maybe Mug O' Beer, or maybe just Communion on Sunday morning. I bet you Love
Hannity, the Great American, Propagandist. Just "JERK!" yourself!
Off.
Or, maybe you were just baiting us. In that case, you are indeed a great MasterBaiter. Ha Ha.
Have a good time, now, and don't fret so much. It will give you wrinkles that you cannot pass off as laugh lines. That is why George Will, Republican Right Wing Nut, looks like his jaw would shatter if he ever smiled. Puggos just can't help but just be sour. That is what makes them happy, being sour and causing misery where they can.
Love Ya!

Draco Malfoy!!!! Now we know where the name comes from given to the villian that bullies Harry Potter and his friends!!!! Of course, Malfoy and his father and mother, Lucius and Narcissa, are stuanch conservatives who delight in causing misery to others. As 11:34 would say, "typical."
YyeeeHeeeeHaaawwwdoggie.
