  1. Why no name for the criminal thief?? He’s not a minor, it’s not a case of a domestic dispute, so his identity should not be protected. He’s a criminal, who was trying to steal an item that is illegal for someone of his age, he is not a victim.

  2. Steve, that’s a fair question. We thought about running the name, but the reason is normally we wouldn’t even run an item about someone stealing beer. For shoplifters, we generally just run the arrests if someone has taken multiple items (usually to resell), is a serial offender or has taken something very expensive. What made this more interesting is that he got hit by a car when trying to flee.

  3. For a long time, the Tenants Association fought bitterly to oppose the Farmers Market —

    Thankfully, residents now have the option of a safe and affordable Farmers Market and also The Associated.

    Thank you to all those who wrote letters supporting the Farmers Market and fresh fruits and vegetables. Let’s hope the naysayers in the Tenants Association do not oppose the re-opening of the Market again this spring.
