We were up at our cabin all last week and we love to get the local papers (the Chronicle and the Adirondack Journal) to read with our morning coffee. I like both papers, but the Adirondack Journal is a smaller, more "hometown" paper. Two features that are always very interesting is the "Turning Back the Pages" where they reprint news from 100 years ago (I can't believe how many people got run over by cars back in those days!) and the local court reports. Here is a gem from a recent court report (names left out):
XXX was arraigned on a charge of second-degree Harassment, based on an incident 2:45pm June 6. Police said that XXX said "Hey 'Big Foot'" to a woman, slapped her in the face and walked away.
Only in the north country. :-)
