Good morning, everyone, it's 7:44am. It's a sunny morning with temps in the mid 30s, and today will be sunny with temps near 50. I'm monitoring 25 today until my dinner and tomorrow after my dinner. Might also monitor 14 early tomorrow morning. I've been thinking about how much things have changed in the community, and for the good I might add. I don't know about anyone else, but things have really seemed to improve in most of the area this year. In the first year or two of doing this blog, it was a hellhole around here, but I've seen a real change on a lot of blocks/Beats. There's still some areas we have to work on, but the neighborhood is a lot better than it used to be. I never thought I would say that, either. But anyhow, here's crime for today.
