Cold and windy weather top the blotter

The County Road Commission, with an assist from some high winds, have kept most county roads snow free and clear.  Those same high winds have caused drifting in spots so proceed with caution.

No heavy snow accumulation expected through the weekend but do expect cold temperatures and cold winds, bringing wind chill temps below zero.  Remember pets during these frigid times and also to be a good neighbor when snow blowing, plowing or using a leaf blower to dust your driveway.  Consider the hour of the day if there are neighbors close by and the final resting place of the snow that is being moved.

Have a safe weekend and remember to bundle up if venturing outdoors or just stay indoors and enjoy the big game.

Unhappy patient arrested on GT warrants

An unhappy patient at an Elmwood Township medical facility caused employees there to call the Leelanau County Sheriff's Office for assistance Wednesday.  When deputies arrived around 1:30pm. and made contact with the upset client, they learned that the Traverse City man had multiple warrants out of Grand Traverse County.

Jason L Kabbes, 29, was wanted on misdemeanor and felony Contempt of Court bench warrants.  He was taken into custody and transported to the Leelanau County jail where he was later picked up by Grand Traverse County authorities.
