At 4:01 PM, 02/05/2009, a
report that several juveniles were fighting in
Municipal Park was received. The first Officer
arrived on scene and observed approximately 60
people. The people at the scene started to flee
against the Officers orders to stop for the
investigation. One of the fleeing persons close
to the Officer quickly entered his vehicle to
flee as the Officer attempted to keep him from

Applyin paint has two
distinctively different purposes. The obvious is
ta make things look better. The functional
purpose of paint, however, has nothin ta do
with appearance. The function of paint is to
protect the object bein painted from
outside elements, typically the weather.
Im supposin that
professional painters are well aware that a job
that looks good doesnt necessarily mean it
is a functional paint job. Course the real
trick is ta have a function that is pleasin
in appearance, but no matter what, the effort of
paintin is only worthwhile if it does the
The philosophy a friend a mine
once took note of, that two thin coats are always
better than one thick coat, came from a paint
can. He may have taken it a little too serious,
but then he did tend to use a spray can in an
unventilated room on occasion.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Q: I want to set up more shelves and
hanging rods in my small bedroom closet so that I
can store more stuff in it. I decided to get some
of those white, metal-grid shelving kits that you
just screw into the wall because they cost less
and are supposedly easy to install. But I
dont have a clue how to go about this. Any
tips? -- Frank in Chesapeake Bay
A: The first thing to do is
measure your closet space so that you know
exactly how much shelving you can put into it.
Take a tape measure and get the height, width and
the depth of the closet. Youll need this in
order to make the correct kit purchase.
Next, decide what configuration
youd like in the closet: how many shelves,
how much hanging space and so on.
Third, compare shelving kits at
a home-improvement or hardware store to the kits
available at most department stores. You may find
more choice at a home improvement store, plus the
ability to expand or change your configuration by
purchasing individual components.
Finally, follow the directions
closely when doing the installation. Make sure
you have all the appropriate tools before
starting work, and remember the axiom
"measure twice, cut once." Figure out
that final configuration before starting the
shelving installation. Youre working with
drywall and studs, so you dont want to have
to pull things out of that wall once theyre
HOME TIP: An electronic stud
finder is an invaluable tool for locating
precisely where studs are placed behind drywall,
so keep one in your toolkit.
