From The Email Bag

Still nothing in the Mess about a car vs train collision Sunday morning. Go figure, I guess everyone is off on the weekend. One girl is in JPS with lots of stuff wrong but heard this AM she isn't as bad as first thought, haven't heard anything about the guy. I think they both live around Alvord but unsure where the wreck was. Maybe someone in blogland knows something. Thanks,

How come law enforcemnt doesn't check out the party where she came from? If your the "right person" in a community, you can get by with anything, even providing alcohol to minors.

9:53AM, no you've got it all wrong. God built her car extra strong to withstand the train hitting it. You should have seen the poor bastard who got the next car off the same line, he didn't fair so well.

Jesus built my hot rod.

there are a lot of things we dont see in the wcm anymore. they only cover things like this on average 1out of every 4 but they still rape us for 75 cents an issue. i think skippy nichols and bob morgan were the only two that covered every big news after hours and on weekends.
good to hear on the blog that mancil will be ok it appears. good family.

Kudos to Wise County Messenger for exhibiting some journalistic professionalism and integrity by NOT reporting the irresponsible acts of a 15 year old.

You people hissing and spitting about a topic, that is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, not being reported need to GET A LIFE. If the papers in Dallas, Fort Worth and New York City reported every wreck, home invasion or fire, their papers would be 5 inches thick and filled with tripe about which intelligent people have NO INTEREST.

First you bitch about the paper reporting too much information, now you bitch that it doesn't. What's up with that?

I can't believe it...I agree with Mzchief for the second time in a single day! Good post....I PREFER they not post every accident. don't want to hear about it, don't care.

At least she was responsible enough to drive a drunk kid home. Trian site has no rail crossings but does have a stop sign.

There are alot of 15 yr olds out there that don't always do what they tell their parents. Maybe this will be a good wake up call.

The girl is a sweet girl that is friends with everyone. Don't judge! They are a very nice family who give alot to the ag programs in Alvord.

I am happy to hear that she will be able to recover on her own.

I dont think they need to report every accident. However, I do think that a major accident involving a train and a minor involving alcohol is a big deal. I especially think that if the party was at a involved member of the community then why isnt it news? It may not be major news to DFW area but for our small comunities it is news that should be reported.

Is there an investigation going on? Will there be charges filed? It seems like they know there were minors drinking and this is a Zero Talerance state. I believe that this is why. There should be someone looking into it.

None of you should cast a stone unless you NEVER drank when you were young!! This is a respectable young girl who was trying to help a friend. I have raised 4 grown children, ALL of them would be off drinking at one time or the other! It was DRILLED in their heads to call home for a free "no bitchin" ride home!!! I know both of the families, they are good hard working people who are trying to raise good responsible children. One of these kids is a minor, so her parents should take care of this... not the judgemental asses on the internet!

Anonymous said...

1:31pm You are assuming that the minors were drinking. Don't assume, you weren't there you don't know..so do start the guessing game.

I agree that every accident does not need to be in the paper. But...you have to admit the WCM has gone DOWNHILL with their reporting since the Eaton's left. At this rate they will be out of business before year end. Even the UPDATE is not as informative as it used to be. What a waste.

Before you go judging Delaney for ANYTHING, you need to know the whole story. People need to keep their mouths SHUT unless they know the story. She was at home sleeping when he called her drunk. She left to go get him so that he didn't drive home drunk. She knows how to drive, as a BUNCH of kids raised in country towns do. She was trying to do the right thing. Maybe she didn't go about it the best way possible, but I bet at 15 YOU didn't either. So before you go judging the actions that she took thinking they were the best thing for her friend, you need to take a good look in the mirror of your NON perfect exsistance.
Delaney is one of the sweetest girls I know, she comes from a wonderful, caring family and deserves nothing but good wishes from anyone on here.

Delaney wasn't at the party, nor was she drinking. she was trying to do the right thing.

How many of you posting have raised kids? How many of you really knew them? How many of them did this or worse? SHE WAS NOT DRINKING!! I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT!!

Anonymous said...

It was on a private road its not a reportable accident.

Anonymous said...

I have am raising kids, I know the whole family and even if she had been drinking, I have done WAY worse then that.

She wasn't drinking. She was doing the right thing.

You people need to quit judging and offering critism on something that you know nothing about.

I love it when people think they are so superior and wonderful that they can offer opinions based on their assumptions.

Assume this: You don't know crap about this subject or you wouldn't have said such negitive things regarding it. Maybe you should keep your mouth shut and quit making such fools out of yourselves.

mzchief said...

All of you partially informed commenters as well as commenters who are hissing and spitting about people making comments without knowing all the facts have more than proved my point. This accident is just another case of meddlesome people gossiping about something that is NO ONE'S BUSINESS except for the people PERSONALLY involved in the situation.

However, based in the information provided, it is IRRESPONSIBLE for a 15 year old to be out and about, without her parent/guardian, at 03:00, REGARDLESS of her excuse. It is up to her parents to better educate their daughter as to how to deal with an inappropriate request made by a friend. FYI...It is NEVER appropriate for a 15 year old to go pick up a drunk friend.

No, I NEVER drank while underage, without my parent's consent, nor has my son.

You do not seriously believe, just because you have "done WAY worse then that", in anyway, negates the irresponsible behaviour of others, right? Otherwise, all of us are in the clear since Ted Bundy has done way worse than anything any of us have done.

Just wondering---did her parents knowingly let her leave her house at 3 to pick up a drunk driver?

should a dead lady in a tub be investigated and reported on?

1:31 here. I didnt make judgements against her and I send her well wishes. I didnt say anything bad about the girl nor her friend. I simply stated that it was an accident involving a train (which in itself is news worthy) and teens. She may not have been drinking but it is very clear that her friend was. It should be looked into. Where he got it from and where he was drinking. If nothing else I dont want them to experience what I did when I was in high school. My friend wasnt so lucky.

I read this blog on a fairly regular basis, and I have always loved a good debate. I am so disappointed at how many people there are who feel the need to post their negative opinions and obnoxious thoughts on issues such as this one. Yes, we have the freedom of speech, and yes, you have the right to your opinion. The problem is, that some of you have forgotten that with freedom comes responsibility. I cannot believe that anyone could feel that it is appropriate to make judgmental statements of opinion in a situation such as this, where the driver and passengers were minors, and where a minor was injured. If you're going to exercise your right to free speech, then exercise your responsibility to do so only when it is appropriate. Besides, many people would do well to remember that opinions are like assholes, everybody has one, so we don't really need to see yours. You should be concerned with the welfare of those children, not what "kids are out doing these days" or who gets away with what because of who they are. Jumping to conclusions, making ridiculous generalizations and stereotypes, and crying because their business wasn't plaster all over the front page of your morning paper makes those of you who choose to do so seem ignorant and unreasonable. I hope that whatever the situation may be that everyone has a full recovery. I will be praying for both passengers.

I agree with mzchief....regardless if the girl was at the party or not ..... getting a phone call from a friend too drunk to drive does not make it right for a 15 year old to drive period. And if her parents are the wonderful people everyone says they are they would not have allowed her out the door to go pick up this so called friend they would have gone to pick him up themselves. What good upstanding citizens allow their 15 year old daughters out at 3 a.m. to drive knowing that is blatantly breaking the law.

oh, and I could care less if the WC Messenger reports the accident or not. Laws are laws and it comes down to the 15 year old had no business whatsoever behind the wheel.

My son was taught the value of character, integrity and trustworthiness and was highly supervised until he went off to college. Most of our son's socializing took place in our home. My Mr. & I grew up in homes that believed in the Trust But Verify method as well as the Practice What You Preach method and we used them in raising our son. Son Mzchief was taught that it is wrong to break the law, even if you believe you will not be caught, and drinking under age is a violation of the law and our family's values. He ditched his fraternity after 1 month of witnessing nothing but drunken behaviour after 18:00 Fri-Sun. People who do not drink have very little patience for drunken people and have no interest in spending their free time with drunks. He understands that drinking underage is an indictment against someone's character and is an embarrassment and disrespectful to the kid's parents. It is a matter of personal honour to choose not to break laws and disrespect and deceive people who trust you. Surely even you can wrap your head around the concept of honour.

Do not judge everyone by your low character and standards.

The parents did not allow her to go. They didn't know she was going. In typical teenage thinking, she didn't think it was a big deal and thought she could get there (a few miles from home), take him home and get back in a short time.
Mistakes were made by many on this, but blaming the parents is not the way on this one. If she had told her parents, they would have happily have gotten up and taken her. That is the kind of parents that they are.
She just made a bad decision and it turned out horribly. I'm sure the lesson is learned there.

I like that... Trust But Verify method. Talk about putting a spin on something. I personally prefer the, We Don't Really Trust You but We Want Everyone to Think We Do so We Came Up With A Tricky Catch Phrase to Appear That We Are Not Overprotective Parents Method.

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. There's not one perfect individual out there...this blog proves it. All Wise County has are individuals who thrive on gossip and meddeling in others business. You all should really take a long look at yourselves before judging others. IN OTHER WORDS....GET A LIFE OF YOUR OWN.

EXACTLY!!!

The 15 year old made an IRRESPONSIBLE decision as is FREQUENTLY the case with 15 year olds. To be quite honest, I blame much of today's television generated public image, for the mistaken belief that tweens and teens can/should handle adult situations WITHOUT adults. Have you seen the dreck that passes for "teen programming"? Whether it is Dawson's Creek, The Hills, 90210, Gossip Girl or the Twilight movies all of them center around teenagers dealing with adult situations WITHOUT adults.

We live in a society where ignorant people criticize RESPONSIBLE parents for being VERY involved in the lives of their own children and supervising the actions and decisions made by their children. Other than IRRESPONSIBLE parents, one of the worst things that has happened to the youth of our nation is granting them a driver's license and freedom at 15-16 years old.

Obviously, you are too ignorant to realize, "Trust but varify" is a Russian proverb, popularized by Ronald Reagan. However, thank you for granting me the compliment of believing I am able to turn a phrase of such sage wisdom.

As for utilizing the "Overprotective Parents Method" [sic], you bet your stupid arse we are overly protective parents. Hubby and I being such, has, to date, assured our son a, life-altering, injury free and bright future as a dentist on his way to being an oral surgeon. That level of accomplishment is a WIN by ANY parent's standards, even your low standards.

Here is something else for you to suck on, Son Mzchief has NEVER had an auto accident, ticket or slightest run in with law enforcement. He is not someone's baby-daddy nor has he acquired a sexually transmitted disease. Hopefully, you can say the same about yourself and your child/children but I would not bet on it.

I had a hardship license at 14 years old and I turned out to be succesful in life...nice fam, good job, college education. Yeah I had to grow up a little early due to some tough circumstances so I was more mature at 15/16 but I don't think you can legislate maturity. Needs to be up to the parents to decide when and if at the age of 16 their child can handle it. If you raised the age to 18 I think you would probably just have less experienced drivers hitting the road to go to college, or work and causing just as much carnage as we have now.

My point is that driving age is fine, it is poor parenting in many cases that allow kids that are not ready to drive.

Shouldn't there be an investigation into where the boy got the alcohol? I guess it will be swept under the rug like all the other parent supported beer bashes in Alvord. The kids are only doing what they see. Now they are paying for it. Maybe this will wake up some parents too.

What I always end up wondering about mzchief's posts - Why does she feel the need to reveal personal details about herself and her family on this blog?
Who cares?

It's just weird that she thinks we care...... or want to know.

And she's so patronizing - like no one else could have a bit of wisdom or knowledge.

We don't care mz. We don't know you and we don't care what you think you know.

Now it's time for your very predictable rant.
