Girls Missing at Double-T

Estrella Luna, co-owner of the Double-T Ranch reported to the Sheriff’s Department that two girls from the Juvenile Facility are missing.

According to Luna, they didn’t show up for breakfast call on Sunday morning.

“We checked their rooms,” said Luna, “and they were gone, along with back packs and winter clothing.”

 Luna, and her partner, Cedar Ring, believe the girls will try to make their way to Bend, and asked Wilbur County residents to not offer rides to highway 20.

Sheriff’s Deputy Shaun Hinterteil agrees. “These girls may seem innocent, and they might bat their cute little eyelashes at you, but a lot of these kids are here for serious offences which would be felonies if they were adults.”

The girls had been on lockdown for the past week, and were in the news recently after reportedly seeing the Wildman near North Plains Junction. According to Luna, this pair of girls has been particularly troublesome.

As minors the girls’ names have not been released. 

Another Kid Missing

 Chrissy Plum reported to The Germaine Truth that her young goat, Grendel, has disappeared, and asked local residents to be on the lookout.

Grendel, whom Chrissy labeled “an expert escape artist” vanished overnight on Friday.

The Plums live out near Charlebois Corners. Ten-year old Chrissy’s dad, Ed, is the biology teacher at Old Paiute High School, and is adviser to the 4-H goat club.

Gossip Around the Town

by Thelma Louise McCoy

“You know I can’t reveal my sources, honey, so there’s no use asking.”

From what I hear there has been another sighting of the Wildman of the Ochocos. He was seen running practically naked through the woods carrying a gunney sack. According to a source close to the matter, he may have been wearing a moss loincloth and nothing else. Kind of cold for that nonsense!

I see that young Bodhi Hedrick has got a new style. Hey, he didn’t get it from me. Orange! And a ring in his eyebrow too! Bodhi, your parents have to live in this town too.

Looks to me like Shu Arlington is renovating his house. He was seen down at the Feed & Seed picking up some lumber that came in for him. I’ll find out more when Regina comes in next week for a cut and perm. I know she has been wanting a family room. 

A friend reports that Cynthea McCoy was seen coming out of the Harney County Courthouse in Burns. I hope everything is okay out there on the McCoy spread.

Have you seen that crystal necklace Daniella Arlington has been wearing about town these days? I hear she got it up there at the Cherokee Nation of Wilbur County where she gets those herbs she likes to brew up that she says are good for the immune system.

Saw Lucy Charlebois and Rita Budreau having lunch at the Germaine Coffeehouse & Cyber Cafe looking thick as thieves. 

There is a rumour going around that Christine Bradford is visiting with the McCoys. Now do you think Cynthea’s visit to Burns has anything to do with Christine being in town?

Madam Zorro   The Stars Over Germaine for March

In general, the stars over Germaine are scintillating.

Aries (March 21-April 20)

benevolent and continues to build your faith. Prozac really has made a difference in your ability to enjoy life and you find yourself becoming more broadminded. You may draw someone or something you have always wanted into your life before the 14th. When you finally decide to clean out the attic storage space, you discover that it holds more than old lamps, broken bed frames and spider webs. You take a break from the constant changing of linens and from filling those tiny shampoo bottles with the bulk stuff you buy at Costco. You spend every spare moment digging through the past lives of strangers. For some of you the second half of the month is going to be very busy and lucrative. You have more tax returns than ever before. That ad you put in the window of your office has really brought in the customers. And there is one among us who has been silent for a long time. Though you do not speak the audience for your cause has grown and your name will be on everyone’s lips.


Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is the month you’ve been waiting a long time to come. Jupiter is raining down on your shiny head. Great pressures will transform you from a rough bit of coal into a brilliant diamond. You’re feeling alone and unsupported near the beginning of the month, but you will gain a better sense of community and value of family loyalty after the 11th. You will take a personal risk. However, though you are right to feel cautious about telling too much, too soon, that unrest that has underlain your life for so long will not disappear without a revelation. You may find that a recent development could ease the way for that mortgage loan you want around the middle of the month. You are so shaken by a new client near the end of the month that you consider whether or not it is a breach of ethics to confess to your priest a matter that is bound by client confidentiality.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

What you lost near the beginning of the month may not be located until later this year even though there will be a lot of publicity and help looking. Jupiter is in the seventh house until March 7th and now might be a good time to invest in a little “voodoo” to attract that person you’ve been eyeing for a couple years now. After the 7th you can kiss her goodbye. An event will take place this month that will have your shorts in a twist for awhile and you should keep your mouth shut. Your travel plans will be delayed as a result of this event, but your personal freedom will not be compromised as long as you can settle things with your partner. 


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

That strep throat you’ve had for two weeks will finally clear up. Your skillful handling of a angry student will be recognized and you could be up for teacher of the year. Don’t worry about that appendectomy later in the month–it is likely to be successful. You may put on a few pounds, but no one’s going to call you names. Saturn in your second house will have you picking at your self-worth like a cat worrying a mouse. You will be dissatisfied with just about everything from finances to fiance. Keep plugging away. Inside you is a clear, realistic, and strong person fighting to get out. Your tax refund is not going to arrive as soon as you thought, so don’t buy that new harness just yet.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You may lose your rose-colored glasses this month and I don’t mean the ones in your cupboard. It is an adjustment, but it’s better than fooling yourself. As long as Saturn remains in Leo you will likely be finding out just what you are capable of in a realistic manner, limitations and abilities. Try not to be so critical of your partner. Just because he doesn’t want to peel off the layers of the onion as bad as you do doesn’t mean he isn’t perfectly aware of the weight of history and heavy load you all have carried for longer than anyone could be expected to bear it.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

An old friend appears in your life and undermines your basic sense of security. You become obsessed with protecting your family. You think about selling the shop and leaving town. This may be premature. Other Virgos will focus attention on children and your partners will feel left out. You will be more balanced after the 7th. You will be able to devote more time to your vocation after the 7th until the end of March and people will begin to be reassured that they made the right choice voting for you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Things are sure exciting for you right now. Your natural curiosity is being put to good use, but don’t let your schoolwork fall behind. There is a business owner among you who should slow down a little. While it is a good idea to know your inventory, don’t imagine that you can memorize all the details about every movie you stock. After the success of that Oscars party you had last month, no one is going to fault you for not knowing who played Festus in Gunsmoke. There’s a young man among you who is very likely to find romance at the end of this month.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Someone is going to ask you to make sacrifices for the good of the team. You aren’t sure what that means. You see yourself taking risks while others are covering their butts. What you do requires self-confidence and a sense of mission. Some of you will receive rewards and you may feel conflicted about accepting them. You are tired of all the drama in your life and you’re ready to let go. Don’t let go of too much, remember that he is hurting, too. Sometimes drama is all you’ve got.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your circle of contacts increases this month and your passion burns bright as you share ideals and camaraderie up until the middle of the month when Jupiter trines with Saturn. Others among you will come into the spotlight as you become more active in your campaign against Malsanto. One of you wants to get out of Wilbur County, but your family is putting up resistance. Somewhere around the 17th, you will get into deep water when you tell your partner that you have a job interview in Provo.


Capricorn (Dec.22-Jan. 19)

A solar eclipse occurs in the 3rd house and you suddenly want more than anything to bare your heart and soul to casual acquaintances, but your sister threatens to put you in a nursing home if you come anywhere near the truth about what happened. Around the 7th you review your financial resources. Near the end of the month you visit a lawyer. Another among you is worried about next year’s crop and if it could be affected by GMOs. Don’t rush into buying seed until after the 24th. Someone local is going to be able to put you in contact with a good source.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

That notebook she gave you is almost full. You have been writing and drawing everyday and something inside you is loosening up. You will meet with your old friend and talk about the girl you can’t forget. You will frighten a couple of young people who are hiking near your campsite. One Aquarian will continue to pursue expansion of her business at some personal risk. One of you will overhear something that will chill you to the bone. This may prove to be important later in the year.


Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your courage has never been more evident and you are feeing like everything in your life is finally lining up and pointing straight at the target. This can be a time of achievement, but it will be wise to recognize your personal limitations especially where your health is concerned. Pay attention to details as they come up and take advantage of the assistance that is being offered to you by one whose energy and youth is just what you need right now. There will be obstacles, but you will discover resources you didn’t know you had.


 If Your Birthday Is in March :

You are either deeply conflicted or completely focused. You will have great personal crisis this month, which will result in a massive breakdown or a monumental breakthrough. Remember that you have pretty much dug this trench or built this pyramid. One way or the other you are reaping the seeds you’ve sown. What crops up is going to bear true fruit.
