  1. I don’t see the Byron Turkey Trot. The church has been organizing this for the last five months, I’d hope the city blog would put the Turkey Trot on the list of events. The Gazette’s been advertising the Turkey Trot since August.

    • Due to the firearms mishaps of last year, the Turkey Trot is still in planning, and will not officially be scheduled until certain safety standards can be reached. This includes a number of possible changes, including changing the name from Turkey Trot to Thanksgiving Fun Run and prohibiting children from dressing like turkeys, so as not to once again confuse certain over-inebriated hunters.

  2. Ah hell let the kids dress up, Chuck. Don’t be such a stickler. Especially because the party store’s got a sale on turkey costumes all the way through October. You can’t expect the citizens to ignore all that. We’ll hand out life jackets for kids to wear under their costumes. Problem solved.

  3. We tried limiting the amount of alcohol consumed by the public when I was on the council a few years back. That led to the Riot of ’05. A total of 2 store windows were broken and a parking meter scuffed as a result, causing nearly $500 in city damages.

    However, Peggy, we will consider your life jacket idea, which would also double as a safety measure during Bobbing for Apples. Kill two birds with one stone there.

    • Frank Tappin offered to give us some of his life jackets from his old boat. The buckles don’t work, but he said they should be sturdy enough.

  4. Your “town” sounds like a hoot……..not sure where it is though. May like to visit it sometime……but I would have to be drunk. Is this one of those western towns where they eat the balls of large mammals?

    • @trueyankeerambler: Our town is in the heart of American. We’d love to have you visit, but keep the drunken hooliganisms to yourself. No, we do not eat the balls of large mammals. I assume you’re referring to Rocky Mountain Oysters. We don’t eat regular oysters, much less ones from the Rockies. Thank you for your interest in our city.

      – Office of the Mayor

      • I’m over 50……….do you allow “early bird special” drunken hooliganism in your upscale Midwestern metropolis? I could have my fill of the local fried (insert animal specie & edible component here) platter and be reasonably blitzed and off the streets by 5:30 pm… Please advise so I can arrange satisfactory accommodations upon arrival in Petticoat Junction. Or should I take the road to Mount Pilot?

  5. Life jackets won’t stop bullets, right? We’ll want to avoid kiddie casualties after the fatal hunting season last year. We need to get those kids bulletproof vests to go under their feathers.
