Accordingly he set a special watchman to see how it was done, and who did it. Deputy Marshall Brookman Scott was the watchman, and on last Friday night he saw a man enter the wareroom. He followed and after a hand scuffle in which he was considerably scratched, and after inflicting a flesh wound upon his antagonist, he captured a man who proved to be Thomas Davis, a plasterer and citizen of Cambridge, who had always before owned the reputation of an honest, industrious man. He is afflicted with Asthma and not always able to work. He was a poor man with a large family to support. Davis is in jail, awaiting the action of the grand jury.

Leta Jean Pennington passed too soon from our loving grasp September 14, 2012.

She was born September 2, 1952 at Ft. Chaffee, Arkansas and was a 1970 graduate of Mooreland HS in Oklahoma. She moved to Denton in 1972 where she met and married "her rock and her life", Fred, in 1974. She retired from UNT Admissions Department in 2006 where she ushered many freshman through the confusion of enrollment for over 25 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Jean Davis and one very short year ago, her husband, Freddie Gene Pennington. She is survived by her brother, Thomas "Buddy" Davis and wife Melissa, her sister, Rebecca Price and husband, Red, mother-in-law Tessie Pennington, her sister-in-law, Imogene Grotte Pennington, her sister-in-law, Patsy Pennington Cave and husband James and her very special sister of the heart and best friend, Rita Frost and husband Bill. She is especially missed by her feline fur-baby, Whitey, affectionately known as "Psycho-kitty".

She had 10 nieces and nephews along with many great-nieces and nephews who could always count on their Aunt Leta to remember birthdays and the special events of their lives either by presents or parties. Her passing creates a great gap in their lives but leaves in place such sweet memories.

Her remaining aunts, uncles, cousins and friends have shown an abundance of concern during her sudden and devastating illness. Her family is extremely grateful for the care and unconditional support shown by family, friends and especially the staff of The Atrium and Odyssey Hospice.
