What a wide variety of exciting news on this day! A fire in a chicken coop, that is a new one! 2 dogs fighting is not new, that is for sure. I love how at the end of the report they say animal control officers handled, but they never tell you how it was handled lol. Were the dogs arrested? Or were they put to sleep? Also, when a suspicious person is reported, they are always gone by the time authorities arrive, another Steamboat regularity. Same thing when an animal is reported, they are always gone by the time authorities arrive, another regularity!

23000 block of Schussmark Trail is not "in" Oak Creek.

Wouldn't a night in jail possibly have more impact on a teenager than a ticket for minor in possession of alcohol?
