I guess this blog entry is plagarism, but deservedly so. I just sat at the table with a bowl of strawberry mini wheats, reading the Daily Sitka Sentinel and belly-laughing until I had pink milk on my shirt. The cause—reading the police log for the week. Here’s a sample:
At 3:25 pm a person off a cruise ship threw something at a store employee on Lincoln Street. The matter was settled between the parties.
At 5:20pm juveniles were hanging out in the 200 block of Lincoln Street, swearing at people and asking them for money. They agreed to leave the area.
At 7:30pm a resident reported her son hadn’t returned from delivering newspapers. He came home safely soon after.
At 8:35pm a resident reported losing a wooden canoe paddle off his boat near Starrigavan.
At 10:00pm a loud party was reported at Halibut Point Recreation Area. The people there said they were playing their last song, and afterwards would stop.
At 9:15am a dead ferret reported in the 1600 block of Halibut Point Road turned out to be a rolled up t-shirt in the road.
At 1:40 pm teens were seen taking plastic milk jugs from the recycle center.
What I left out included a couple drunks, daily fireworks, a gun shot from a “floathouse,” and at least 2 bears getting into garbage. And this is the news. This is the town I live in. I feel really quite safe now. Well, unless I encounter one of those onry cruise-goers…or teenagers blowing ferrets from milk jugs with fireworks.
