Animal incident, Ashland; "Roxy", a small black Lab mix, on the run.

Suspicious activity, Gorwin; report of male in black jacket and hat walking in and out of woods and in the caller's backyard. Finally walked back into the woods. (probably trying to return that wallet)

During the reporting period, 18 citations and 10 warnings were issued. Two erratic drivers were reported.

BWTM:

In the old days, undesirables were simply ordered out:

Middlesex s.s.      To the constable or constables of the town of Holliston or either of them

Greeting:

These are to require you to warn Samuel Pike and Abigail Pike and their children, forthwith to depart out of the town of Holliston, so that neither of them become an Inhabitant in said town.

Holliston, March 27, 1755                              By order of the Selectmen.

                                                                        Daniel Emerson, Town Clerk

And an unattended death:

September 1, 1882. Last Friday several witnesses were examined as to their knowledge of the manner in which Patrick Finn recently came to his death.  We understand the testimony to be that when Mrs. Finn first looked for her husband the bar tender was notified of the fact, and he told Mr. Finn, who was asleep in the chair and in attempting to get up, fell out of the chair, and was afterwards assisted to the water-closet so he would be out of sight, and that he remained there until found dead.  It is reported that more witnesses are to be examined today.

It was a dull week for the police. That's good news for residents but makes it hard for me to keep it interesting.

Was this a dull week or did I miss something? Hoping for a quiet week now and then It refreshes us for the next round.

Nice detective work but, no, it's a different raft.

Is this the same raft? http://hollistonreporter.com/article/8385/ss-ahoy-mades-runs-afoul.html
