This is the first of the articles left for me anonymously about a week ago. I’m posting it here in the hope that someone may have some idea as to why it was left for me.

In a ribbon cutting ceremony presided over by Mayor James Flowers, the Pinebox Elementary Daycare was opened this morning. Those in attendance included elementary school faculty members, district administrators and members of the Risen Church of Pinebox whose generous donations helped to open the building before the end of the current school year. Flowers addressed the attendees noting, “Without the kind donations from the Risen Church and several Pinebox businesses we would not be here celebrating the rebirth of an organization our city’s parents have come to count on when it comes to the care of their kids.”

The new daycare facility was required by the school after the portable classrooms Pinebox Elementary used previously were destroyed when a delivery truck driven by an intoxicated Bill Reyes crashed into them in December of last year. While the buildings were completely demolished the accident occured in the early morning hours before school had begun and no one, except for Reyes, was injured. Reyes was rushed to Pinebox Memorial where he succumbed to internal injuries.

Area police have been advised to increase patrols around the new facility to ensure that Pinebox drivers properly adjust to the new fifteen mile-per-hour speed limit. “The safety of the kids are our number one priority,” noted Sheriff Butch Anderson, “and we’ll be watching the streets to make sure there aren’t any more accidents.”
