But other residents believe Kane still needs police patrols on a 24/7 basis. David Walker of 28 Pine Ave. is one of those Kane residents who supports continued 24/7 police patrols. Speaking at a Kane Borough Council meeting last week, Walker claims it would “an injustice to the citizens of Kane” to leave some portions of the day without a police officer on patrol. Walker said that using police for call-outs only during certain periods of a day would “open the doors to the bad element to come out” and take advantage of the absence of a police patrol. He said the proposal to eliminate around-the-clock police patrols in Kane is “a crazy things to do.” Members of the Concerned Citizens of Kane contend that the borough could save money by foregoing around-the-clock police patrols.

Mashable asked the data miners at Google Trends to share what costumes people are searching the most, and unsurprisingly, Queen Elsa tops the list. She's joined by a few of her Frozen castmates, and a whole slew of familiar faces in the pop culture world. So, while that Guardian's of the Galaxy costume may seem like a really awesome idea, thousands of others are planning to wear the same thing.

The concrete footings, iron supports and big wooden planks were removed and large rock deflectors were placed against the stone wall to help support it just below the dam. Wetmore resident Jim Neely submitted a proposal for the project back in the spring to the Park’s Board of Directors. Neely proposed a three-part project which would take place over several years to enhance the fishing in the stream. The project was approved by the board of directors and has received little opposition. The site of the project used to be a popular swimming hole but has been used less frequently in recent years.
