Next Meeting Scheduled 10/17/2009 6:00 PM FOP 19th Ave & Sweetwater

We just finished with CUFF'S. This year was done very well and with very few problems. Thanks for everyone's help and participation. A couple of things have occurred in the past few weeks that we will be addressing at this months meeting. The first item is the removal of the President Lou Boozell of region III. Chuck Rios was the VP and is now the President. We will discuss this situation in length as to whys and wherefores. The next item that we will be talking about is the loss of Ofc. Rabjohn PPD. He was killed in action in Afghanistan while serving in the National Guard. As I indicated in a previous e-mail we will be taking up a collection to present to his family at the P.L.E.A. office on Oct. 20th between 1700-2000 hrs. The other Regions have been asked to help with the collection. Two of our brothers had a minor riding mishap while riding to Chester's HD. Due to a miscommunication the riders came together, rear bag guard to front crash bar. No harm done, other then the changing of the shorts. Please, Brothers and Sisters, let's ride hard and ride safe. 2010 Renewal applications will be available at the next monthly meeting. Bring your checkbook and all your motorcycle info.

George Phillips , an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me. Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available...." George said, "Okay." He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again. "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up. Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the Policemen said to George , "I thought you said that you'd shot them!" George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

(True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with older people.
