It was good seeing all those faces the spaghetti dinner. Good job troops. Charlie and Betty S asked me to send kudos to the cooks.
Any good stories out of the Harvest Moon Regatta?

Ethan Hoerner brought a pretty lab by yesterday and asked if I recognized him. All I recognized was a happy lab who didn’t miss a meal. Plain collar no tag. Come on people! At least put a nametag on your furry friends. I haven’t heard if he found his way home

I guess tomorrows the day we hear the official version of what we got for our $17,000 investigation.

I’d suggest you come early if you don’t want to stand.

Nationwide EAS Test Planned for Nov. 9 , 2011 – The first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System will take place at 1 PM Nov. 9.
The EAS is a media communications-based alerting system that is designed to transmit emergency alerts and warnings to the American public at the national, Tribal, state and local levels.
EAS participants broadcast alerts and warnings regarding weather threats, child abductions and other types of emergencies. Alerts are transmitted via TV and radio including satellite television and cable.
FEMA will conduct the test along with the Federal Communications Commission. The alert will be transmitted throughout the country, will last approximately 3 minutes, and will be monitored by EAS participants.
