Attempted abduction on Grandview street

Published May 27, 2015 by justicewg

A 7 year old Grandview child said that a man attempted to reach out from a passing vehicle and grab her. This happened about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on the 1100 block of Mulford Road. The car was reported to be a silver sedan, unknown make and model. The child ran into the house and the car left the area. The man was described as a heavyset white male in his 40s. No further sightings of the couple in the car have been reported.

This is a unusual but not unique event in Grandview, I remember an incident where a child reported an attempted abduction down by Pierce Field a number of years ago.

More info on the Grandview City blog.

There was an abduction and murder of a Marble Cliff child in 1971. Michael Dean Klitch, 12, was taken from the tennis courts below the Summit Chase apartments on Goodale Boulevard. His body was found two weeks later in a shack near Alum Creek in Delaware County. No suspects were ever arrested in that case.


The list of items for sale in the Grandview Yard sales

Published May 8, 2015 by justicewg

Time once again for the Great Grandview Yard sales. The city put a map up in the document section of the Grandview city website, it is fine if you just need a map of the location of the yard sales tomorrow (May 9th).

They also mentioned a file that was supposed to have a short list of items that would be for sale at each individual yard sale. I couldn’t figure out if it was linked somehow to the map, or on a different place I couldn’t find.

According to Pat Bowman there was a mistake made in uploading the file to the city website. He sent me the file that has all the lists of items for the sales, and he is trying to get the PDF up on the city website in the 10 minutes left before they all go home. (Now there is a list of items for sale at the garage sales on the city website, hidden lower on the list of files. Not sure if I just missed it or it was posted later.)

I will just throw up some screen shots until I figure out how to link to the PDF file he sent me.

(Update – the link to the PDF list of garage sale items is below the screen shots, it seems to work).

Sorry, this file is a crappy image PDF, so you can’t use the search function to find the special treasures you were hoping to pick out of this big list. If you have an OCR program good enough to scan all the words and keep the table format intact, please send me a copy. My OCR always fails with this sort of table.
