Preparations for Crazy Daze were happening yesterday afternoon downtown:
Left: Tom McKown, spiffing up the walkway in front of the Archer House.
Center: Community Service Officer Kris Wilson putting up the no parking signs. Kris’ vehicle says on the back: “This vehicle was seized from a drunk driver.” The police department evidently has 3 or 4 vehicles that have been ‘seized’.
