March alarm madness; new links

The alarm on the truck parked on Louise continues to go off with astounding regularity at all times of the day and night. At his request, I have called (SLO) officer Trulik each time to document the occurrence. Last night (Wednesday) he called me to say he was going to deal with it. He sounded convincing.

Still waiting to see someone else posting here...

This useful site (thanks to Barbara Hand) contains a lot of useful community and LAPD info. Much of it needs to be updated, but it's still a great service.

Citrus Sunday

Here's info from John Bearie in the city council office re: Citrus Sunday. Seems like a good cause.
