Unalaska Envy




Rev. Paul (http://mooseintheyard.blogspot.com) often reported snippets from the Unalaska Police Blotter. Unfortunate the officer doing the blotter has taken on other duties and no longer has the time.

Contrast those exciting and interesting events to the mundane events in my town as reported by the Greeley Tribune.

July 2
7:30 p.m.: Greeley police responded to the 500 block of 21st Avenue for a report of an intoxicated man drinking a beer while riding his bike who appeared to be looking for trouble.
10: p.m.: Police responded to the 200 block of North 45th Avenue Court for a report of a man selling doorbells door-to-door. Interestingly, the salesman didn't ring the caller's doorbell but banged on the front door instead.
July 3
6:30 p.m.: Police responded to the 1400 block of 10th Street for a report of a "little jerk head" on a motorized scooter trying to run down people on the sidewalk.
July 4
7:45 p.m.: Police responded to the 2400 block of 24th Street for a report of an intoxicated man who threw himself against a wall when he wasn't given a cigarette.
11:30 p.m.: Police responded to a report of a 14-year-old who would not go home with her parents. Officers provided the parents with resources for parenting help but said they wouldn't parent their child for them if there wasn't a crime.
July 5
1:30 a.m.: Police responded to a fast-food restaurant in the 2400 block of 8th Avenue for a report of an intoxicated man passed out in his pickup with music blaring in the drive-thru lane. Other customers were forced to drive around him.
6:45 a.m.: Police responded to the 2100 block of 28th Street for a report of a man who tried to sell the caller a cutting board and towels. The man left the items on the caller's patio.
9:30 a.m.: Weld County Dispatchers were called about a city of Greeley employee driving and talking on his cellphone near the Family Funplex. The caller didn't want the employee cited but made aware of the laws "the rest of us are supposed to follow."
12:30 p.m.: Police responded to the 1000 block of 5th Street for a report of a stray cat the humane society refused to take because "it smelled like death" and was drooling from its mouth.
2 p.m.: A man with a broken-down car on U.S. 34 near milepost 105 in Greeley called dispatchers and asked them to send a cop with some tools so he could repair his vehicle. The man was advised to call a tow company.
2 p.m.: Police responded to the 400 block of 37th Avenue for a report of a suspicious person. The caller said a man drives into the neighborhood every couple days, looks at the houses and then leaves. The suspicious person was a nurse who regularly checks on the caller.

Perhaps a lower level of alcohol consumption is partly responsible for our more mundane problems? Not to say we don't have our share, just not epic ones.
