recent qwest internet trouble

For at least a month, my qwest dsl has been awful. I can connect just fine to my work VPN, but most things “web related” are slow- or no-loading.

It’s so bad I almost want to go back to broadstripe. Is anyone else having problems?

DMI arrest last night

At 25th and cherry last night, we had one of our first DMI busts. Officer Murray told me that this person was “on the list”, presumably meaning they were present at the intervention meeting Thursday night.

Is anyone aware of other arrests? It would be nice if there was a way to track candidate success rates.

In any rate, keep calling 911 when you see activity (in this case it looked like dealing combined with solicitation, though I’m not sure what charges have been filed).

cars tossed on marion

2 cars on marion were broken into and tossed tonight. Another on 25th
was entered but not much more than that. No broken windows, thankfully.

-champagne/silver honda accord (couldn’t tell in the night light)
between 24th and 25th
-white saturn suv between 23rd and 24th.

I called them into 911, also saw a gaggle of teenagers wandering up
and down 23rd looking for shenanegans. One wore a red cap with a
white jersey, another wore a black and white checkered hoodie, black
cap and new balances. Didn’t really get a good look at the others.
