***9/11 CEREMONY*** Thank you to all that donated their time to make this year another great 9/11 tribute/ceremony!

***VEHICLES SPEEDING***SEE STUDY***PLEASE RESPOND*** We have received several complaints recently regarding vehicles speeding through town. Without a doubt, people speed on a daily basis throughout the country. This is a fact that will most likely never change. Residing within a small community, the act of, “Speeding” is more easily identified or apparent by citizens due to the surroundings. As most citizens are aware, it is impossible for law enforcement to always be in the right place at the right time. However, part of our responsibilities includes monitoring traffic for violations of statute or local ordinance. We always try to dedicate a great deal of time in this regard to ensure safety. Last week several hours were devoted, “As usual” to monitoring traffic. Within this time frame, the speed/s of (58) vehicles were documented along Pearl St. (See Below). The result produced an average vehicle speed of (26.72) Miles Per Hour (MPH). It should be noted that the posted speed along Pearl Street is (20) MPH. A few traffic stops were conducted which resulted in verbal warnings, and 1 citation being issued. Granted, different time frames, and different days of the week could yield a different result. However, this result is consistent with what we typically observe during a normal shift, minus the top speeder! The top speed was egregious, and a rarity for us to document. The primary question is, what is the opinion of the community? At what speed does the community feel they should be issued a citation if caught speeding? Technically, traveling above 20 MPH is considered speeding. However, we would like to assume that any reasonable person can distinguish the difference between traveling above the speed limit and, “Speeding.” Therefore, what speed do you feel is egregious, and appropriate to receive a citation if caught? Please respond truthfully and honestly! (MPH) (# of vehicles) (58 Vehicles Total) (Average Speed 26 mph) 15 mph (1) 20 mph (3) 21 mph (2) 22 mph (6) 23 mph (3) 24 mph (1) 25 mph (12) 26 mph (4) 27 mph (5) 28 mph (4) 29 mph (5) 30 mph (1) 31 mph (3) 32 mph (2) 33 mph (2) 36 mph (2) 37 mph (1) 50 mph (1)

***Community Event***

The following was sent to us by a concerned citizen, a bunny was stolen from her hutch. The owner does not have social media so I made this post for her. If anyone finds Polly please call the number listed. The owner has posted flyers around Amo already but I am hoping that the power of social media can get Polly home.
