    Garbage galore

    Someone complained about accumulated rubbish on Gibson Ave. Either someone picked it up or it wasn’t bad enough, because the matter was deemed to be unfounded at the time of the report.

The caller told the reporting party to mail the money via Western Union and not to call her grandson because he couldn’t come to the phone. She went and got the money, but had second thoughts – luckily. She called her grandson, and voila! He answered the phone, stone sober and not, he assured her, in jail.
