.g i,.a t o ol See More Photos - Of Beaches and Mother Duckers By Mike Lakin Two people were walking down the street when, reportedly, a dog left a yard and came within a foot of one of the individuals - barking, growling, and acting intimidating. A woman came out of a house and called the dog back into the yard and the two people continued to walk. The woman called out the dog could not have left the yard because of an underground fence. One of the individuals responded, "the dog did leave the yard and I have a witness." The woman replied, "Well your witness is no good".., and that's when the police report was filed. Officer Kyle Veech took the report. By deftly substituting "beaches, mother duckers, and duckings" the story can be told. Officer Veech went to the house, knocked on the front door, and the dog that fit the description approached him on the front porch barking and growling. The owner of the dog immedi- ately stated, "those 'beaches' are lying, and my dog doesn't leave the yard!" Officer Veech asked the dog owner to either put the dog in the house or on a leash; the request was ignored. Asked if the dog would bite, the owner said, "he might, you are in his yard." The owner was advised that the city had ordinances concerning dogs running at large and dogs who intimidate. The owner of the dog ignored Officer Veech's statements and continued to state his dog never leaves the yard. At that very moment, the dog was out of the yard and running in circles around the squad car parked in the street. The owner was advised to restrict his dog or animal control would be called. Officer Veech issued the dog owner a city ordinance violation for a dog running at large-intimidation in the amount of $200. The owner of the dog refused to sign or accept the citation, and stated, "put it in the 'ducking' mailbox." Later the owner of the dog arrived at the police station and stated his dty citation made no sense and Officer Veech forgot to write a date on the citation so it was his opinion that the seven-day "pay by date" did not apply to him. He then told Officer Kyle Veech that he was a "stupid 'mother ducker' " and that he needed to go back to "cop school" and learn how to date things. Officer Veech told the owner of the dog that the report was taken "today" and that he had seven days from "today" to pay the citation. A report says the avian flu could mean no turkey for millions of people on Thanksgiving. MPTHS CLASS of 1962 Classmates held their monthly luncheon at the Farmers Family Restaurant in Mt.
