    1. Anyone know what is going on at Walgreen’s at Market and 15th Ave? 1 fire engine, and up to 10 SPD units?? They arrested one person, and are currently searching a red vehicle (Chevy Cavalier I believe).

    2. The snowflakes got old and started needing repair or replacement. Then one fell on a car in a windstorm. At that point there was not the money/interest in raising the money to fix them up again, so the snowflakes came to an end. Too bad because I liked them too.

    3. Karin, thank you for shopping local!!! The business owners are the ones who signed up and sometimes the word doesn’t trickle down to the employees. It’s all for fun and we hope you will dozens of $25 gift certificated by completing your passport!

    4. We had our photos taken with Santa on Saturday the 3rd and lost the card of the Photographer. Does anyone have the photograppher’s contact information
