        Gee, I guess no new speed bumps to report on Hinman or Hull Terrace…..the definition of a slow news day!

  1. Pineapples?

    While I find the comments entertaining, what a travesty that someone would actually waste the time and resources of our law enforcement for what is apparently a rift. The “thief” has a key so it’s someone known to the “victim.” So stupid to call the police. Yes, they walk among us.
