Mid-day Thursday, Feb. 17, someone broke the front door of a house across from the Thurgood Marshall playground, stole electronics, including a television, laptops, computer equipment. No one was home at the time, which is unusual, so they must have been watching. Keep an eye out for daytime home robberies.

Car nose down at 10th & Jackson on 9/8
Did anyone happen to get a photo of the car that evidently went over the embankment out of the parking lot at approximately 10th & Jackson and landed nose down on the sidewalk. I was driving by around 1 pm and there were emergency vehicles and police cars but I didn’t have my camera. Would love to hear the story behind it, whether it was occupied at the time, air bag deployed, etc.
Found two sets of keys on my lawn yesterday. Car keys, house keys, maybe file cabinet keys. Only ID is a red metal heart-shaped tag that says “Best friends Amanda&Megan.”
Helicopters – 24th & Judkins – 2 am 7-17-10
Anyone know what the helicopters, police activity was in this neck of the woods last night? There were helicopters, a fire truck and police cars. Looking forward to the scanner for more information.
Earth Ball on West Coast tour
Many of you might recognize our very own Sam Pockets a/k/a MaryEllen Anderson and her large earth ball that occasionally walks around the Central District. She has recently taken it on a tour of the West Coast, spending Earth Day in Berkeley, California, and visiting the Earth Island Institute. Here is a clip from her visit to Eugene: http://kezi.com/news/local/168966

I’m interested in the CDN dialog on the following incident. Has this been posted anywhere and I’ve missed it?

a cup of sugar?
I live on South Irving St across from Thurgood Marshall. Yesterday a young woman (attractive, nicely dressed, about 15 or 16) rang my doorbell and asked to borrow a cup of sugar. I said sure and she said she had to run home for the cup. I came back to the door with the sugar and saw her walking east on Irving with two young males. I can only think she was checking to see if anyone was home or even to see if doors were unlocked. Sorry I don’t have a better description of the three.
