ALCOHOL ABUSE AWARENESS AT TJHS SRO Jeff Waite had an opportunity to educate Troy Jr. High 8th graders in Mrs. Raterman's health classes on the dangers of alcohol abuse. Students used alcohol impairment simulation goggles and attempted activities such as walking a line and tossing a ball. One student even commented, "I don't think I ever want to be drunk!" Music to our ears :-)

Time is running out to sign up for civil service examination for Parking Control Officer. visit:

CAN YOU HELP SOLVE A JEWELRY HEIST? During the early morning hours of Monday, October 23, 2017, at least two males were involved in a forced entry into Harris Jewelers, located at 2343 W.

He was wearing a black ball cap and red, possible Ohio State, hooded sweatshirt with black lettering. Two vehicles were used throughout the incident and they are believed to be a dark, newer model Chevrolet Traverse and a light, older model, Chevrolet Blazer or GMC Jimmy.

TROY TRICK-OR-TREAT TONIGHT 6-8 PM Be cautious while driving tonight and watch for distracted, excited trick-or-treaters. If you choose to pass out candy, here are some Facebook "copy and paste" words of wisdom... If a teenager comes to your door trick-or-treating, please give them candy without saying "aren't you too old to be doing this?". They could be out doing things much worse like drinking & driving, vandalizing, drugs, etc. I would rather they knock on my door and ask for candy, having safe and legal fun, than see them do the dangerous things they could be doing. Let them be kids as long as they can. Kids grow up way too fast. Let them spend one evening channeling their inner childhood. Something else to consider, size doesn't always determine mental age or special needs of a person. You may "see" a teenager, but they may still relate as a younger child. Please don't refuse a child candy because they aren't dressed up. Some children have sensory issues that make dressing up highly uncomfortable, if not unbearable.

DP&L SCAM CALLS There is a group in Pakistan calling from the DP&L phone number (937)331-3900 and asking you to call back a different number (844) 470-****. The number you call back leads to an extremely official-sounding scam center. The scammers are trying to get people to pay them usually over a $1000 to keep from getting their electric shut off.
