FFB Dog Park Wish List

Construction of the new public dog park will begin within the next two weeks! It is a privately funded project, but we still have a Wish List ! Items included are Pooper Scoopers, water hoses, trash cans, shade trees, a large piece of sail cloth to be used for sun protection, tables, funds to provide exercise equipment in the future such as barrels, posts for training, perhaps a fake fire hydrant (!) , and most important, a baggie dispenser, which is available on-line at Dog On it, for $60.00. The Men’s Club of The Kirk, has most generously agreed to build 5 benches! In order to help cover the cost of the benches you can memorialize a bench to a loved one for $75 whether it be a pet or person. A plague will be made and placed on the bench. We are most grateful for their kindness.

For donations, please contact Dale Ritchie at 884-3396 or 909-225-2133.

Thank you for consideration and help . Blessings!

Forrest Gump once said in a movie “life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”. Being a police officer, our shifts resemble that remark nearly every day. We had a report by a concerned citizen of the possible abduction of two children by a man in a marked work van. I had earlier in my shift stopped a very similar vehicle which matched the description and he had his 2 children with him. As I was running blue lights across the Bay I saw the vehicle matching the description pass by me. I quickly made a U-turn and caught up to the vehicle which had pulled over as soon as he saw me. It was indeed the same vehicle from earlier and the children were very excited to show me the tarantula they had just caught with their dad. I was very happy that it turned out the way it did, but please always call in suspicious activity. We would rather go to a hundred false alarms than not catch a criminal because people are hesitant to call.

The month of November was busy and featured the following calls. A report of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, 1 fraud investigation started, 5 thefts, 2 disturbance calls, 4 suspicious persons checked, 4 breaking and entering calls, 7 accidents and 3 suspicious vehicles checked. Also we went to an attempted suicide, 1 criminal trespassing complaint, 1 terroristic threat complaint, 3 residential burglaries, 2 domestics, 1 harassing communictions complaint, found an open door on a vacant home and 123 public service calls.

Traffic stops in November, 2 expired vehicle tags, 8 speeding stops, 2 no license plate, 3 defective equipment, 3 not stopping at stop signs and 1 illegal passing. 3 traffic citations were issued and 3 arrests were made for, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest. 5 Warrants were sent to the prosecutors office for various charges. As always please E-mail me at [email protected] with questions or comments.

If you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood please call us and you can remain anonymous if you desire. We need your help to help reduce crime in our city thank you.
