News and Notes – updated March 11th, 2010


Most Wanted Pests
  • It’s getting warmer and that means all citizens are reminded to be on the lookout for Pawnee’s Most Wanted Pests! Remember your DARE training from school: Drop – Acquiesce – Run – Escape.
  • We extend our apologies to the young victims of the face-painting mix-up at the Saturday Farmers Market. The paint should slough off within one month, or can be removed now with diluted lighter fluid.
  • Up, up, and away! PCSAKFE (Pawnee Children’s Society Annual Kite Flying Expedition) starts Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Please no more effigies or kites with profanity.
  • The man making obscene balloon animals in Keystone Park is not authorized to be there, but is very talented. See his creations before he’s arrested.
  • Local hero Andy Dwyer is at it again – he’s captured Fairway Frank!!! Read all about it in the Pawnee Journal.
