On his Regan for Trustee Facebook page, Brent Regan tells of a political sign being pilfered within 48 hours after he put it out. But Regan sign pilferers shoud beware. In 2010, the trustee/inventor built a few, tiny, camouflaged cameras w/motion sensing for a candidate that he supported. As a result, Regan and his candidate were able to catch a thief, as a camera snapped a photo of the male in action, along with his car license plate. Regan comments: “I mailed the parents a copy of the picture showing junior in action and a brief note. Problem solved.” Regan sez he has the cameras “on the charger now.”
Question: Why do you suppose would someone steal a candidates' yard signs?
Two Washington State football players were arrested in separate incidents over the weekend, marking the third and fourth projected defensive starters to be arrested this offseason. Defensive end/ outside linebacker Travis Long was arrested Friday for suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol by the Pullman Police Department. According to Pullman Police logs, Long's date of birth is listed as July 24, 1991, meaning he turned 21 on Tuesday. Defensive tackle Anthony Laurenzi was arrested two days later on suspicion of third-degree theft at 1690 S.E. Harvest Dr., the address of the Walmart shopping center in Pullman. Long and Laurenzi mark the third and fourth starters on the front seven to be arrested since head coach Mike Leach was hired in December/Andrew Nemec, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Ah, is there a problem here?
Don Kilian of Coeur d’Alene called this morning to complain someone had stolen his head. More precisely, the large wooden head sculpture he’s had for nearly half a century. It was sitting in front of his house in the 1300 block of 15th. He suspects a group of young hooligans dragged it to their pickup truck and made off with it. It was so heavy that it would take 3 or 4 people to move it, Kilian said. Anyway, he wants his head back.
