She first tried to reach her parents, family friends and neighbors. No luck. So, she called her best friend over, but said that girl couldn't kill the "massive" spider, either. Makenna Sewell said her next move was to call the non-emergency police dispatch line. "I didn't call 911," she said. "I didn't think it was that big of a deal. I basically called the dispatcher looking for advice." It happened the night of Aug. 16. The girl told the dispatcher she had "a ridiculous question," before asking for help killing the spider. She described it as the size of a baseball and said a poisonous spider had recently bit her mother. "I think that raised awareness for her and why she was so wanting to get help," Makenna's mother said. What Makenna didn't say to the dispatcher is that she has muscular dystrophy and is in a wheelchair, and hitting and killing that spider would have been incredibly difficult.

From Previous Police Blotters: 5:54 p.m. A concerned Kalispell man reported that his wife went shopping six hours ago and had yet to return. She returned home shortly after. 9:20 a.m. A Martin City man claimed that his brother stole his gun and he wanted to press charges. He called back later claiming that he found it under one of his blankets. 12:28 p.m. A Bigfork woman called in to complain that a local bar had live music until 1:30 a.m. She was advised that it was not illegal for bars to have live entertainment. 7:45 p.m. A Conrad Road resident reported that two men and a woman stopped by his house and asked for a beer. He suspects they were on their way to the cemetery. 11:08 p.m. A resident on Conrad Drive reported that the “rainbow people” were in town and suspected that they could be found at the cemetery.
This is something only a woman would do. You won't catch a man shoving something with sharp teeth down the front of his pants.

Miami isn't on the list because a vehicular death like gunshots is ruled a death by natural causes.

"Police were called to help a homeowner deal with a wayward Swedish beaver" I wouldn't mind a wayward Swedish beaver coming to my door.

Age of maturity for legal drinking = 21 Age when brain matures = 28+ That gives you 6 or more years to have fun before you realize how much of an a** you're being.
I found an image of Jesus on a pork chop I fried up this evening. Wouldn't think a Jewish guy would show up on pork. But he was delicious.

This is from "A Physician's Counsels To Man In Health And Disease." By Walter C. Taylor A.M., M.D. published in 1872. His views on contraception. These practices favor libertinism. A man who would fear to seduce an unmarried woman lest a child should be born, is induced, by knowledge of this kind, to persuade her to her ruin. It is an inducement to dissipation, and hence a danger to society. The tastes and habits of sensuality are thus fostered. Wives, for their own sake, ought not to countenance them. The holy rites of the marriage couch ought not to be made solely the satisfaction of sexual instincts, and marriage thus defrauded of one of its noblest aims. The wife is not so much respected, who thus comes to be regarded merely as a companion with whom to lead a lascivious life. She is in danger of sinking to the level of a mistress. Her moral prestige, that halo of modesty which forms her greatest charm, is imperiled. Any fate is preferable to this. Better suffer by the minor annoyance of numerous children than forfeit her domestic happiness.

Does the reverse hold true? When the mice are away the cats will play? Plus we need more information. Where did the cats go? Why did they go away? What do the mice play? Cards, soccer, around?

In an email late Sunday, B.C. RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Annie Linteau said after a story about the foot aired on TV Sunday night, someone called into the local detachment. “The man said that he had been walking his dog yesterday and his dog kept chewing on a bone. To make the dog stop, he stuffed the bone inside a discarded shoe on the beach,” Linteau wrote. “We have since compared the shoe found with his description, which matched. Coroner have since confirmed [the] remains are in fact animal.”
