  1. Are you ever going to post any information on the aleged stabbing that occured yesterday on Ivy Avenue? The helicopter flew so low that things fell off the shelves in my home. WHat happened? Why hasn't anything been reported about it? Apparently they didn't get the guy, the police department said they were managing it. Yet they went through our yards checking doors and windows with guns drawn. What's up with that?

  2. When I get the info from the Police Department I'll post it
