Story date: Dec. 31, 2008Perpetrator: ‘School is for chumps’By Michael FordReporter
Santa may be considering some repossessions after an unknown perpetrator gained entry to a local school and caused an estimated $2,500 in damage Monday, a week into the school’s Christmas break.The perpetrator(s) gained entry to Russellville Middle School, located at 1203 W. Fourth St., through an unlocked window, causing damage to both the building and electronic equipment, according to a local police report.The Russellville Police Department (RPD) received a 911 call regarding the incident at 12:56 p.m Monday. Upon Officer Clay McBryde’s arrival at the school, principal Al Harpenau advised him that someone had broken into Room No. 621, the parent center.McBryde’s narrative indicated that once the perpetrator(s) gained entry, they “ransacked the room, smearing peanut butter all over the tables.” It also stated that a computer and printer were damaged, as well as the security door to a music room.According to the report, the cost of the damage to the room itself was $400; the computer, $1,200; the printer, $800; and the security door, $100.The perpetrator(s) wrote a message on a chalkboard that read, “school is for chumps” — followed by an obscenity — then signed the name “Blood.” McBryde’s narrative indicated it could not be determined how much property was missing at the time of the report.RPD Public Information Officer Josh McMillian said the perpetrators were probably juveniles since nothing was stolen.“We don’t tolerate anyone doing damage to school property whether they are an adult or juvenile,” he said. “The incident is still under investigation at this point.”

I could not get it to turn off by pushing the button and it was very hot. So I proceed to unplug it from the extension cord. maybe coffee pots should not be plugged into extension cords, but mine was along with the microwave. I have very limited outlets in the kitchen and the 2 have been plugged into that extension cord for many years. Anywho, this is what the extension cord plug in looked like.
I could not get the coffee pot cord out of the extension cord so I unplugged it from the wall and had to break it apart to find this:
The coffee pot cord is melted into the extension cord plug in. I have tried to pull, twist, yank, hammer, and use a screw driver to get it to come out and it still wont. Now even if I did get it out, I wouldn't trust that the coffee pot plug in is in the best shape to reuse. So, the whole pot is in the trash now. I got $50 from the teacher I work with for Christmas. I guess I know what I will be getting with it :)

Well, off to Wally World now for regular shopping (kind of worried about another bomb threat while we are there). 3 in the last 2 weeks there plus one at the court house.

Now look like this
An area about 10-15 acres has been completely cleared away. Not just thinned like they did several years ago. It was up for sale for the last 2 or 3 years as commercial. So, I guess we will have some big business to look at now. Yea :(

Going to Hobby Lobby this afternoon to get the last of the needed Halloween stuffs for costumes. Actually going simple this year. I am going to be a Vampire again and Sahara is going as a Goth Fairy (we only had to get her wings and a belt and shoes) and Canyon is going to wear Sahara's old Ty Kwon Do uniform. We have been semi-invited to a costume b-day party this weekend so I can't put off getting things together for next week.
