Can we have a Police Blotter for the 3 weeks since this was posted, please? Typically, there are 20 entries per day at NPD.

We are a month behind....and can anyone form a sentence that writes this!!

I believe it was stated before most everyone was let go from Patch, that someone has to go down to the station to get the logs. So whoever feels like doing that could do it and make a blog of it.

Leaf blowers should be outlawed. They are an absolute nuisance to our residential areas.
Hopkin March 10, 2014 at 12:25 PM
Speaking of which, one was just right outside my door. The complex I live in has gone from having them one day a week to 5 days a week - excessive.
