Good morning, everyone, it's 7:42am. I'm monitoring 14 until 9:30am, then I'll turn the radio back to 25 until 2:44pm, then I'll monitor 14 again from then until 3:05pm, then I'm taking a break until 5:49pm. After that, I'll return with 25 until 6:47pm. Today is supposed to be in the 30s under cloudy conditions. I hope that maybe the temps and the colds may keep crime down on MLK day. It needs to be peaceful on a day like this. Also, I may fall asleep on some occassions today. I've only had 3 hours of sleep (I couldn't sleep last night). So, here's crime for today.

I think that you, the reader, should donate blood or money for the survivors of the earthquake in Haiti. There are a lot of us out there who can help, such as yourself. If everybody who can would do this, and bring two friends with them, we can all feel good about doing our part and provide a gift that is badly needed. My mom and I are donating some money. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with the Haitian people, and you, if you have family or friends in Haiti. The earthquake in Haiti is truly a tragedy, but with our help, the people of Haiti can get back on their feet.
