County Judge Dean Fowler announced a ban on outdoor burning in Upshur County on Friday afternoon, Aug. 9.

The ban is effectively immediately.

Fires in recent days have destroyed 117 acres four miles southeast of Gilmer and two homes in the Camp Joy area near Ore City.

This map shows the counties in Texas which were already under burn bans as of Aug. 9.

Why does this article omit the hard copy paper edition which states "the unincorporated" parts of Upshur County?

Just had a redneck with the iq of a knat try to attack me because I had a small campfire in the backyard as she furiously waved her copy of the paper with eyes ablaze yelling "it's right here, read it!"

I had to point out the word "incorporated" and bring out crayons to draw her the definition.

un·in·cor·po·rat·ed [uhn-in-kawr-puh-rey-tid] Show IPA

adjective

1.

not chartered as a corporation; lacking the powers and immunities of a corporate enterprise: an unincorporated business.

2.

not chartered as a self-governing village or city; lacking the tax, police, and other powers conferred by the state on incorporated towns: an unincorporated hamlet.

3.

not combined into a single body or unit; not made part of; not included: Many unincorporated research notes are appended to the text of the book

Within the city limits is not an unincorporated part of Upshur County. I even called to question the fire department (full of even more dimwitted bed soaking pyromaniacs) and they stated the city was. I ask by who's authority? They responded "we don't know." I asked where I could find the legal decree stating the city was under a ban, again, natural born loser response "I don't know, but I know that it is." Now you have the online edition contradicting (cleverly through omission of facts stated in the paper edition) itself. What a joke this place is.

If he does not,,, then I guess we will see him in court,,, and another bill that the county can not pay...

They can not even fix the roads in the county... so having s sheriff that will not enforce the law is not surprise in the county...

But if some one looses property or a life.. because of it,,, well he will be just like crabtree in a lot of shit,,,,
