    Don’t Panic. Recent reports would seem to indicate an unknown presence hovering over the east hills. While I couldn’t say for sure who it is they are here for, I could certainly offer up a few names if asked. The more down to earth among you might have noticed that the lights up high just so happen to correspond with a cell tower located off Old Dalles Road, but I will not be so easily deterred. A recent fly-over by a HRCSO plane found only the aforementioned cell tower, but seriously! Haven't you ever seen cloaking technology? That's a trick question, because you wouldn't know it if you had. If any close encounters occur, we will let you know. In the meantime, dispatch is aware of the lights and remains convinced that they are benign in nature. We shall see. For those of you still searching for answers, 42. Be safe out there. JI

    Cinderella - The Birkenstock Edition We’re not exactly sure what sent you running off into the night, but we are fairly certain that you arrived at your destination with some cold feet. Running through backyards and jumping fences in the snow is not in the “recommended uses” section for Birkenstock (I looked), never mind the foot that was missing its footwear all together. It does bear mentioning that traipsing through backyards in the dead of night does constitute trespassing, and should be avoided. Perhaps the possibility of criminal charges should be weighed against whatever it was that caused you to flee in the first place. Not to mention the possibility of serious injury. As was alluded to previously, Birkenstock's were not designed for that particular activity. Be that as it may, if you would like to claim your missing footwear, please be prepared to present the other half of the pair. True love is not likely to result from this endeavor, as the couple who found the sandal in their yard seemed quite happy together. Happily Ever After, JI
