PRESS RELEASE — Hope everyone had a good week. Let’s see what all has been going on. Special thanks goes out to everyone who had anything to do with all the Veterans Day events. I went to a couple of them and they were great.

Landlord came and reported a renter running a generator in his house because of no electricity. Renter was down. Sgt. laird got there fast and got help on the way. He was in bad shape. He is going to make it. Thanks to all who responded and helped.

Anyone hear of a good deal on a black 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle, let us know. We got a call where one was stolen in Deweyville area. It was stolen near the sandbar in Kirkendail.

Someone received notification from “Oprah” saying they had won a prize. Gave money on a credit card. Now they know it’s a scam and wants their money back. Sorry there is no way we can get their money back. Not the first call on these matters.

Received a call where several pit bulls dogs were trying to kill a man’s cow. He did what I would do to protect my livestock. Not good for the pit bulls.

Gotta go. Thought for the week: A teachers job is to make a bunch of live wires and see that they are well-grounded. Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just hollar. God bless.
