What is on the news in your city?
Posted by castelnuovo on Monday, November 26, 2018 7:21 PM

Vancouver has endured a week-long reign of terror. A psychopathic, cunning and voracious predator has engaged in a slaughter in our city. Yes, a rogue otter somehow made it into the Sun Yat-Sen Garden koi pond and has been eating the prized fish. No one knows if Madonna, the 50 year old matriarch of the pond, has survived. The tragedy is tearing the city apart, with citizens choosing Team Otter or Team Koi. Will riots be next?

I'm afraid our local news here in northern Indiana can't top yours, CN.

Same here in central Indiana, here in Muncie it's only ever meth and are famous shady government. Are building commissioner got arrested by the FBI recently he owned a construction company and was giving all the contracts to it and also personally signing off on inspecting his company's work. One of them was around fifty thousand dollars for pouring a new wheelchair ramp and handrail on a city building. That and a friend of his bought a flea market off a guy for around 100 thousand then turned around a few weeks later and sold it to the city that wanted the land for a project shoring up the river for 300 thousand. The guy told the FBI he was told this information by th commissioner and the owner of the flea market had no idea the city was wanting his land. It's been a fun summer lol.

Portland turning into a free fire zone, going to be rivaling Chicago in a few years.

NorCal fire coverage (and I grew up about 50 miles east of the "Camp Fire", and know most of that area)

Most stations airing the crying about the treatment of migrants storming the wire.

I don't really watch news during the day. I'm too busy pursuing my hobby. Although my cat, Mooch, went missing Sunday. Something like that doesn't make the news though.

BTW: Sign me up for Team Koi.

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

This thread seemed like a bad idea from the get-go, Castel. Folks just can't restrain themselves.

GM Oshawa plant closing.  Someone stole a delivery truck from a mall.  Figure that thieves were hoping for some good Christmas loot, but it only had 1.25 million candy canes in it.

On the feel good side...A business owner in Portland is loaning his motorhome to a woman, 2 kids and a grandchild that lost everything in the Paradise fire.  She is a teacher/counseler. Is sending it down full of supplies for them and others. 

Guess he has been talking to her on a daily basis since learning of what she is going through. Like a lot of others in CA.

Hey now.... Billy Joel is an icon in the music business. None of his songs are bad. Taylor Swift on the other hand.... well she’s nothing but a spoiled brat. I can’t stand her.
