(Editor's note: In the Jan. 4 column, Boardman Police Officer Kim Kotheimer was incorrectly referred to as "Jim" in one sentence.

(Editor's note: Generally, Janie Jenkins' column runs every other week and this would be her 'off week.

It very well could have been a dream. It is one of those rare bluebird days of late October with splintered sunshine and cobalt blue skies and colored leaves dancing in the wind.
