Police Report - ByMike O Chief Lynn Freer stopped the motorist because, of course, hehad a revoked driver's license. He had not one but two suspensions. He had not one but two revocations. All four were in force. By the way, the insurance card the driver provided had been expired for over a year, the local police do call the insurance company on your insurance card. The police department seized the vehicle and of course the driver was arrested. O Ofc. Todd Bauer made the traffic stop due to the driver having a revoked license. Although the driver was quite surprised that his driver's license was suspended, he did honestly say he didn't have insurance either. The revoca- tion was due to a prior DUI [Eternal Trinity Lutheran Church Missomi Synod - Rev. Da Tles, Ph.D. Pastor Web: http:l/www.etemaltrin Ry| Ya'll come see us/ 6076 Old Bagdad Hwy, Milton, FL 32583 Office Phone: (850) 623-5780 Home Phone: (850) 626-5626 E-mail: Lan conviction. The police depart- ment seized the vehicle and of course the driver was arrested. (Your editor can almost "copy & paste" this last sentence.) O Ofc. Jay Burdick received a call about a trailer plate that was attached to a stolen trailer. Fortuitously the trailer was parked only a few hundred feet away from the police depart- ment. (An unfortunate failure to observe your surround- ings.) The owner of the trailer retrieved it and said he had no idea how it made it to Mount Pulaski from Mt Zion. O Ofc. Kyle Veech arrested a Mount Pulaskiresident for driv- ing while suspended. The driver was surprised to find out that, 46 days after a DUI the state of Illinois automatically suspends driving privileges. During the inventory of the vehicle, a bag was found containing a wooden cannabis grinder that had a gold marijuana leaf inlaid on the lid and two smoking devices. Also found in the car, a dear plastic jar with what appeared to be cannabis. Being this is not Col- orado or Washington, it is still illegal to have such things in your possession. An arrest was made for various vehicular and possession wrongdoings. O Locking your garage yet? Back in December some resi- dents reported having their garages entered and some items were reported missing. The cul- prits are not believed to been local grown, but it's still a good idea to make sure your garage is locked at night so that it doesn't attract the wrong type of eve- ning denizens.

Mr. Pulaski's Calm Creek Tearoom hosted our group's Tuesday, January 20 luncheon. Kella's tearoom has become a very well known and popular dining place for our area. No wonder.., have you tasted their delicacies and baked goods? If not.., you're missing some- thing! Tuesday's luncheon was co- hosted by Pa, tsy Garlits and Sandy Ohler. The day's special featured a delicious hot ham/ cheese combo, which also included a cup of superbly sea- soned spinach soup, chips, and a salad. I opted for the fresh fruit salad, though other choices were available. It brought a taste of summer to my palate.., a sen- sation I'd been missing over the winter. My compliments to the chefl Patsy and Sandy presented each diner a bag of nicely selected Valentine candies. Patsy had prepared each one and included a big red heart on the outside of the bag. T'was a very nice touch. Our two guests, Maxine Downing and Dolly Buckles, seemed to enjoy themselves, and the candy as well. I have nothing but good to say about walt staff. Ashley served our large table, and did it very well indeed, displaying courtesy, patience, and efficiency. This young lady knows her p's and q's about serving. Truly, she's  real asset to Calm Creek. Over coffee, while some enjoyed a delightfully delectable dessert, pleasant conversation whiled away a couple hours spent in fun and relaxation. Phyllis Hawk and Madonna Boyle will co-host the Febru- ary 17 luncheon at noon at the Kom Krib in Latham. Call either co-hostess a couple days prior to the 17th to confirm a reser- vation. Remember, all are wel- come.., just call ahead to either co-hostess to confirm. Come join us.,. we're a con- genial group.., and what a great way to see us through what seems to be a long, cold winter. Submitted by- Pat Straumann
