The winner of the $30.00 Gas Card sponsored by Walgreen’s at 1806 Franklin here in Michigan City, was Mrs. Gesse and the 2nd grade class of Edgewood School! They worked on the riddle as a class project during the morning and called in their answer! They were so excited as they were the first, third, and finally the 6th correct caller! I went to the school and awarded Mrs. Gesse her gas card and special treats for all the students. Last columns riddle of 24 Blackbirds, one partridge, three sheep and of course one blue moon after adding, subtracting and multiplying, was 83! I normally do not do this, but I must acknowledge a shout out to Mr. Dabkowski and the Masons! After my article on the Mason emblem being pried off a tomb stone and damage occurring, Mr. Dabkowski called representing the Masons and offered to not only replace the emblem but also have the stone repaired free of charge! What a great community we have! Q: I own an upscale hair salon here in Michigan City and I would love to provide wine to my customers during their appointments. How would I go about doing this? Can the Police Chief just give us permission? A: SORRY not as easy as you think. To serve alcohol, you must obtain a restaurant permit through the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission. To apply for a permit to consume alcoholic beverages by the drink, you are required to have accommodations and food service available at all times for a minimum of 25 people. Minimum food service required consists of hot soups, hot sandwiches, coffee, milk and soft drinks. Q: My step-father is on the computer all the time. I walked in on him and it looked like he was looking at child pornography. I am afraid to tell my mom and I really don’t know how to report it? A: Don’t be afraid. If you believe that this is occurring or has occurred, please tell your mom what you have seen and report it to the local police. On-line child abuse includes: (a) searching for, sharing or downloading images of children being physically and sexually abused and (b) “grooming” children in chat rooms with the intention of committing sexual abuse both on and off line. You may report suspected child pornography and child abuse in the United States to the National Center for missing and exploited children at www.missingkids.com. You may also report child pornography websites to the Association of Sites advocating Child Protection (ASACP)www.asacp.org/report.php. Q: I am kind of confused. My car was sideswiped while parked in front of my house and the other car took off and left the scene. The police found the car wrecked and abandoned a couple of blocks away. Why couldn’t the police just go arrest the owner of the car for leaving the accident scene? A: Sorry it really doesn’t work that way. Every accident situation is unique, as the accident must be fully investigated first as the driver and owner may not be the same person. Upon identifying the vehicle possibly involved, the officer will attempt to find the driver and determine what had occurred. If the officer is unable to at that time, the vehicle may be impounded until an owner or driver come forward. The sponsor of this week’s riddle is our friends at Sophia’s located at 5250 Franklin St. in Michigan City. The winner receives $30.00 Gas Card! Sophia’s Restaurant has several great employees who work the breakfast shift. Three of them are Angie, Catherine and Gail. Angie is older than the redhead, but she is younger than the waitress. Catherine is younger than the blonde, while Gail is older than the brunette. The Hostess is the server’s younger sister. Can you give the hair coloring and profession of each girl in order of age? The 3rd correct answer by phone or email at exactly 1:00pm today wins. To answer a question or ask one, contact Sgt. Chris Yagelski at 873-1461, Ext. #1020, or e-mail

Update this dog has been claimed by owner Thank you
