    Plywood patrol car stolen

    The plywood cutout of a sheriff's office patrol car along Spring Hill Drive was stolen sometime early Sunday.

    The owner of the cutout, Rick Pyburn, said he called the Benton County Sheriff's Office on Sunday morning after realizing it was gone.

    "I called them to say I was reporting a stolen patrol car," Pyburn said.

    They got a kick out of that, he said, because the sheriff's office knows about him and his cutout patrol car.

    Despite his humor, Pyburn, who is making more cutouts, said this was the first one he made. "This one I wanted to keep."

    Pyburn made the cutout last fall to get drivers to slow down and "it worked," he said. "We've had a lot of fun with it."

    The next cutout he puts out will most likely have to be chained or bolted down, "and that's too bad," he said.

    The cutout was made by enlarging a photo on vinyl and then posting it on plywood. It was put up in some bushes along Spring Hill Drive on a straight stretch past the Spring Hill Country Club.

    I want one of those!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    That reminds me of Twin Lakes Co. near leadville at 10,400'. They have an old patrol car parked on the first curve outside of town. In it is a dummy, dressed up like a patrolman. The town has about 20 residents and a 2 block main drag.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
