    I was lucky to grow up in a town like Ely, and you don’t appreciate it half as much until you have lived in the fast paced rat race that exists beyond Wheeler Peak, Success Summit or the experience of the excitement that everyone gets from a simple pleasure like the Fourth of July Parade. It’s not the same here. I would give all the fourths of July I’ve had elsewhere for just one more fourth in Ely. I missed the fourth this year due to an illness. I don’t plan on missing next year. Reading through the blotter had me wishing peace for the ones who had passed away and hopes the families heal and the ones that are having problems in their lives a resolution for a better tomorrow. Most people would think Ely has to be one boring place to live if they were to read the blotter. I read my local news with caution and worry everyday and I wish to be in Ely again and to know that chances are the worst thing that is going to happen that day is that there might be some cows in the street or traffic stopped to let some sheep cross. It’s nice also to know that most of the car wrecks only happen when backing out of a driveway and no one was severely injured. It’s hard to get hurt going 5 mph. People from where I live would say man it’ s so slow there. Thank god!! Take some time to smell the sagebrush. Believe it or not one thing I miss about Ely is the awesome smell of sagebrush after a rain storm. Do you have any idea how swamps smell. The state of Florida is a swamp. It smells like a swamp. I wish you all peace and happiness and a continuing comparatively slow police blotter and can any one tell me what kind of equipment this equipment is that is used in the enhancement of ornamentation of sward and eradication of unwanted multicellular eukaryotes of the plantae kingdom is so I can get me some if I need it or not. Rock on Ely!!!!!!

      Dennis R. Petty…..Eukaryotes are formally the taxon Eukarya or Eukaryota. The defining membrane-bound structure that sets eukaryotic cells apart from prokaryotic cells is the nucleus, or nuclear envelope, within which the genetic material is contained. Since then, it has become clear that the plant kingdom as originally defined included several unrelated groups, and the fungi and several groups of algae were removed to new kingdoms. However, these organisms are still often considered plants, particularly in popular contexts.

      Bottom line here? I think they mowed the grass….
