    Ben Carlson, News staff

    Sheriff Troy Young says he’s had about all he can stand of so-called “gypsies” showing up here from the Carolinas each spring and scamming unsuspecting residents.

    “I’ve been dealing with these people for 23 years,” said Young. “Every year it’s fence painting, barn painting or a blacktopping scam.

    “I pretty much have come to expect they’re going to show up, just like the dandelions. Sometimes you just gotta go out and spray.”

    It could have been worse. Much worse.

    City councilman Bobby Durr narrowly escaped serious injury when his garage at 1031 Indian Trail caught fire Saturday afternoon while he was working to repair his lawnmower.

    “I was very blessed to get out,” Durr said following the fire that singed his hands, eyebrows and hair. “I could have been very easily laying in the funeral home.”

    Contacted Monday by phone, Durr said he was OK and thankful that he wasn’t seriously injured.
