Of drunks, portable radios and ears of corn

2:13 a.m.
A man on First Street reported a loud party going on. The people were advised to turn the down the music. They agreed to quiet down.

What an agreeable group of partiers!

2:33 a.m.
A man on Bridge Street said a man was passed out in the doorway of Steven's Paint Store. Parents were called to pick up the subject.

A "man"? How old was he if he his parents were asked to come get him?

10:48 a.m.
A woman on Elm Street said her neighbors let their dog out every morning and it barks and wakes her up. Police spoke with the owners who said they'd keep it on a leash.

Yeah, that'll stop the barking.

12:57 p.m.
A woman on First Street said her neighbors yell and scream profanities all day long. She was advised to call when the noise was going on.

First Street does not sound like a nice or quiet place to live.

2:50 p.m.
An East Second Street man said a woman was walking up and down the street yelling into a portable radio.

6:08 p.m.
An East Third Street resident said neighbors were in a shouting match over a boundary dispute. Officers spoke with the neighbors, who agreed to build a fence.

Seriously, if we could only tap the negotiation skills of the Corning police force, there would be peace in our world forever.

10:04 p.m.
A woman on Pulteney Street said a man with a warrant out on him in New Jersey was driving around in a black Cougar.

11:20 a.m.
A motorist said ears of corn were blocking traffic at the intersection of Pulteney and Bridge streets. The Department of Public Works was notified. Fire and place officials assisted at the scene.


  1. Man, that Corning is a wild joint ain't it?

  2. Haha Penny on her leash is probably at her LOUDEST!

  3. I wish I could have been a witness to all of these crimes.
