While Palm Creek friends were gathered at numerous Superbowl block parties in preparation for the big game this past Sunday, we noticed helicopters hovering over Hiway 10. All traffic was stopped in both directions which causes a MAJOR backup on such a busy thoroughfare. With our memories still fresh from the devastating traffic accident that occurred in the same location just weeks ago during a dust storm, we were all quite concerned. (Notice the "blowing dust" sign. This is the same location of the accident that killed so many people. See an earlier blog on this site.) This time we heard rumors that it was some kind of hostage situation. Today's Casa Grande Dispatch reveals the idiot that was behind the whole affair as it turns out it was just a hoax. Let's look at the bright side of this incident: It certainly gave our law enforcment agencies a chance to practice their skills. It's comforting to know that in a true emergency, we have all that support available.
