Haven't seen our police chief in awhile. Looking fit&trim! Keep up the good work. It's important in taking care of oneself, and especially in our law enforcement and medical. Seriously?? who doesn't laugh at the stereotype "boss hog"? or listens to a doctor about health, who smokes?

This county is fortunate to have Officer Light & Officer Corbin. Note those in L.E. - theses guys are the standard to which you must aspire to be.

Maybe someone should show this picture to the overweight firefighter in Norwalk -how could a man who serves our community look like this?

Funny. Our bike was stolen and an exact description was given when filing a report. Never heard another word about it. I know there are much bigger issues than locating someone's stolen bike, but if they feel the need to advertise that they're overstocked with bikes then maybe they should take the time to review the theft reports that have been filed.

Maybe you should go and check to see if your bike is there.

That was my thought...when was the last time unach ^^^went and checked up on the report?

back when some of us were kids , we used to have to go to the firs station and pay to get a license on them.. not only was it a good introduction to the people who will help and assist in a frightening situation (a fire) but it was also a good way to track recovered bikes..especially now with some bikes costing in the area of several hundered dollars a piece..

I feel that at this time, while talking about a warehouse full of bikes.. I wonder if the city ever considered implementing a program, where they would paint some of the bikes florescent orange or something, and put some in all of the bike racks around town?? that way, instead of someone who need to travel from point A to point B can hop on these "taxi" bikes and get them to where they want to go, without actually stealing one??? I believe this has been tried and has worked well in other communities...

How do we go about purchasing some of these bikes?

I have an idea. They can give the unclaimed bikes to the welfare. Then welfare can give out free bikes instead of Cedar Point tickets, and an added bonus is they will have a ride to WORK!
