I’m sometimes asked where do news stories come from? A lot of times from people in the community. Like yesterday I was at Scott Jackson’s Real Life fitness on Argall Way in Nevada City and Scott asks “Why was there yellow police tape around the parking lot in the strip mall across the street?” I had no idea. But, a call to Nevada City Police explained the suspicious package that prompted a call out to the Placer County Sheriff’s E.O.D. Team. (That’s Explosives Ordinance Disposal Team …I still call them the Bomb Squad.) It turned out to be nothing serious (the package was a wrapped up Christmas table ornament) but at least other people who saw the yellow police tape and the EOD disposal team at work Sunday morning now know what it was all about.
