  • Police responded to an anonymous report on Christmas Day, stating that the Christmas lights decorating the gazebo in Village Park had been damaged. Police found that numerous bulbs from the strings of lights had been broken. Police estimated the damage to be valued at around $30. The lights were a gift to the Village this year by an anonymous donor, who brought the lights back to the Village after learning the previous bulbs had all burned out.
  • A cat that was trapped under the decking of the marina Dec. 29 got lucky when a woman spotted it and contacted police to help rescue it. Police removed the cat using a dog-bar. The cat, which police said, “appeared to be okay other than cold and wet” was turned over to the woman, who said she would care for it.
