We’ve made it through Turkey Day without much of a fuss. Hallelujah!

There was one vehicle fatality we learned of this morning near Ladora. Sad. And around 10 p.m., Linn County deputies got called out to Nancy’s Bar on Mount Vernon Road SE for a bar fight involving about 10 people. Nobody got hurt very bad, though. Other than that, just a few minor traffic wrecks, some medical calls and a small scare at the Bali Hai Estates Mobile Home Park in Hiawatha between some┬áburning cigarette ashes and a piece of┬átrailer skirting.

No burnt turkeys here! And I even got to try some collard greens.
