Good 34º cloudy morning. Some rain yesterday, not much... about 1/10". Started about 3pm and didn't last long.
In California there is a Blue Alert for the capture of the former LAPD officer, Christopher Dorner, who has gone on a killing rampage, depressed and angry at being fired. You can go to www.KTLA.com to read about it. He's killed one officer (as of yesterday morning) and wounded a couple others and is suspect in the killing of the daughter and her husband of a LAPD officer. My friend Sandy wrote, she lives in Beaumont, and scuttlebutt is that Dorner may live in Beaumont also. Big Bear is on lock down while they search for him there after he burned his truck.
The purpose of the Blue Alert Program is to establish a quick response system designed to issue and coordinate alerts following a violent attack upon a law enforcement officer. The goal of a Blue Alert is to provide immediate information to the public about violent suspects via media broadcasts, and other notification resources to solicit help from the public in the safe and swift apprehension of the suspect. This is frightening for all those in So. Cal and all officers. Sad.
Yesterday the phone company guy, Tim, really nice, was here to transfer the phone lines from the old pole to the new pole. Yeah! Now we can get the power company to take out the old one and we can use it to fix our bridge.
And here are the lines transferred to the new pole... I called the power company and they will contact me when they can take down the old pole.
