We've been promised rain all week, and so far, not hardly a shower (yet).
Today will be like a lot of days this week...GRAY skies, maybe some sun, maybe a breeze, and maybe we'll see temps reaching into the mid to upper fifties today (and maybe it'll become dark by nightfall, too...LOL).
If this all sounds a bit "hazy", well, you must be in (or near) Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Welcome to the Hoosierland, where weather can change by the MINUTE, and also where ambiguity seems to be the order of the day these days.
So sit back, take it easy for a spell, grab a refill of your morning beverage, and allow me to guide you carefully into this weekend.
*** First off of the coroner's slab comes this story that gives us our FOURTH homicide this year.
|You KNEW this was coming on the SE side...|
Never saw that much newsprint devoted to nothing being said.
The GOOD news is that the FWPD have provided the actual LOCATION of this fight-turned-deadly.
This took place around 2015 hrs last evening at the CLARK station at Drexel and Wayne Trace Rd.
|If he WANTED premium, he shoulda SAID so!|
No one seems to know if it was a STAB wound or a GUNSHOT wound, because that information wasn't released. Obviously, the NAMES were not released (gotta tell the next-of-kin), and the "person of interest" has yet to be arrested (Self defense? Then why flee the scene?)
Guess our FWPD "capo" Garry (read empty uniform) wants to play this DOWN (as in way down) because it happened on the SE side of town, and at the gas station that was recently called out when a woman claimed she had WATER mixed with her GAS.
THAT was, but the station manager seemed to want to make good on it.
This area is a hole...honestly. I used to drive past there every morning.
Not a place one wants to frequent.
Hopefully, SOMEONE will be forthcoming with SOME (real) information.
*** Next up...last evening, Adam Widener (WANE) concluded his 3-part investigative story about FWPD officers being "Too Old To Patrol?".
Here's the link to the video and story:
|Very good job.|
Smith never wants to rock the boat unless it affects him and HIS (1st) district, which has a lot LESS crime than we do down here.
I never trust a guy that makes light of something this important, as he seems to do.
Damn shame that Glynn (hurray for racecards) Hines wasn't interviewed...like he'd want to change anything either.
|Hey, at least he's got a good SINGING voice, right?|
Grow a damn pair, Tommy Boy, and do what is right for ALL concerned, and stop feathering YOUR cap.
York wants to RAISE the limit to age 70 (he's still another empty suit).
I dunno...if the perps were in their 70s or 80s, I might go along with this bunch of BS, but I can't considering the TYPE of criminal LEOs have to deal with THESE days...a lot more violent and younger every generation.
This could well come back to bite them in their (aged) asses...we shall see.
*** And now, an update to something I covered in yesterday's post.
*** If you're planning for an apocalypse (and who ISN'T these days), then an event in the Summit City might be just up your alley.
Here's the story link:
Imagine that - a PRIMITIVE SKILLS gathering at the OLD FORT this weekend.
They also will have hide tanning (my mom used to practice that with me when I misbehaved), fire starting, finger-weaving, flint knapping (I like ME napping), gourd containers and wig-wam framing.
Or, you could just stock up and hoard items you'll need like ammo, TP, water, dried foods and the like...your call.
*** Last back to the bunker today is a really cool "feel-good" story from our neighboring state of Ohio.
Here's the story link:
|There is a great couple.|
A pre-prom meal at the local Bob Evans started the evening off well.
The teen, one Austin Dennison, is an Eagle Scout, plays on several teams at his high school and is in the school's band.
Oh, and he attends his local church faithfully.
It's always good to see excellent examples of good role models, no matter how young or old they might be.
This young man has the right attitude, a large heart, and that type of "reverence" young people USED to show for grandparents (or anyone older than them).
Like I said yesterday, we all remember our grandparents as being up-in-years when we first knew them as toddlers.
And, it's nice to be able to bring some happiness into a senior life that has seen (and done) so much, been through all sorts of things we can't envision, and to lose many along the way as they age.
It's more than nice actually...it's fit and proper to do so.
Do have yourselves a fantastic weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
