Corco Man Dies After Having Sex With A Horse
A long-time drug abuser and intractable covert philanderer, who lived a solitary life of quiet shame at 3444 Camino Road, is dead at the age of 67.  Narl Nelson was found "slumped at the trough, if you know what I mean..", Police Chief  Duke "Duke" Henshaw volunteered. His office immediately issued a news release, fixing the sordid cause of death, and detailing a litany of  fetid behaviors that had previously only been rumored. My Best Post confirmed the Chief's findings, when we called the Nelson home seeking comment, and there was no answer, even after it rang four or five times.

Winner Announced In Literature Competition
Lacey Henshaw, 13, of Corco, has taken top honors in this year's My Best Post Youth Writing Contest, for her stirring and whimsical tale of a Kansas farm girl who is swept away by a tornado and dropped into a magical land, populated by all sorts of strange people and creatures. The judges selected Henshaw's work, over a story by Frederick Flank, 14, who detailed a personal account of his own struggle for survival on the streets of inner-city Detroit.

County Fair Fun Despite Mishaps
This week's tilt-a-whirl accident notwithstanding, it's been a great run for the Skillet Lake Exposition. Only a handful of other deaths were reported, mostly from food poisoning. "Many of them were older people, with little life expectancy anyway", Expo President Tal Porkman smiled, "We had to shut down the midway after the propane incident", he laughed, "...but we got the messy spots mopped up pretty fast." Statistics for the event reveal that last weekend's concert featuring famed six-fingered guitarist "Hand-Som" drew the biggest crowds. Som will be laid to rest Friday.

Top Cop Is Top Choice For Assembly Seat
Riding a wave of grass-roots popularity, Corco Police Chief Duke "Duke" Henshaw now appears to be headed to the State House. A poll conducted by My Best Post, places him 34-points in the lead, after challenger Wally Links of Kelp Hill died unexpectedly in June. This will be "Duke's" second attempt at public office. He lost a bitter primary contest to Corco resident Narl Nelson in 2003. The candidate will hold a pancake fundraiser Sunday at 10 AM at "The Donut Hole" in Corco. "We'd like to see every voter who commits to us, receive a gift in the 20 to 40 dollar range, and that can run into some real money", he bleated. Apart from his law-enforcement duties, Henshaw has amassed a personal fortune as majority owner of The Torpor Talcum Company.


Recently, Mrs. Bett Bettson of Mezzanine, while exiting a dentist's office, was observed to be of unfocused purpose and slurred speech. Accordingly, My Best Post reported that she was suffering from end-stage dementia, after being bitten by a rabid weasel. We regret the error.
