Kayaking teens accused of tiki bar beer theft
July 25, 2008 3:50 PM EDT
PORTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Two teenagers have been arrested after kayaking across a lake and stealing beer and energy drinks from a man's beachfront tiki bar.

Lt. Bill Lux of the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office says officers were dispatched Thursday morning to Porter Township in western Michigan, about 60 miles south of Grand Rapids.

Several cases of beer and a case of Red Bull had been stolen from a tiki bar on the shore of Cedar Lake. The owner said he saw two men paddling away in kayaks.

Lux says some cans spilled into the water when one of the kayaks overturned. Police located the suspects by following the cans.

Five other teens were arrested at the scene, one for marijuana possession and the rest for underage possession of alcohol. All are 15 to 18 years old.

A little bit of the Oregon Gathering came here to me in my Post at Heartbar today!

Fred won a gift basket of wonderful doggie goodies and doggie "stuff.. a big bowl, some cookies, a toy, some notes cards...

Even tho he does not have dogs, He was kind enough to keep it and bring it back here and give it to MY dogs as he knew they would enjoy it..

so.. Thank You to who ever did the basket.. my dogs were very happy, and thanks to Fred and Robert for giving it up for them!

I was happy to have a little of the gathering in my hand, and not just on the computer

OK- a little late posting this since I've been home a few days already. But I want to say a big to Nancy and all who attended. It was another great gathering. I also want to say to Adonna and Bob who found me at a rest stop south of Eugene and invited me to camp in their driveway Monday night on my way north. They even fed me dinner and allowed me to relax on the couch in the air conditioned house! What a great family we have here on the forum!

Lisa did the doggie gift baskets (made in a doggie bowl). She did more than one. They were soooo creative. How nice of you Frederick and Robert to share a bit of the Gathering with Gina.

How nice of them! Hey Adonna and Bob, did you realize you had McGyver (aka Eric) camped in your drive way? Did you ask his advice on fixing anything?

Sharen & Simon from Bullard's B-60 finally have returned home to Whidbey Island. Following 7 great days & nights in Bandon, especially enjoying the Fiberglass RV folks (all of you!), we spent the next 3 nights in NO CA at Prairie Creek Redwoods. Lovely.

Then 3 more nights on the road taking a leisurely drive up the coastal 101 (awesomely beautiful - yeah Oregon, you're an outstandingly beautiful state!), into all of its nooks and cranies - funky Pacific City, cheesy Tillamook, hoity toity Cannon Beach (lah dee dang dah) - and now back home in Langley. My floors are spreckled with cramping ditritus - sand, bits of woodsy stuff, unmentionables... Our smelly laundry is enduring a sterilization process. Roadtrips sure do accumulate grit and grime.

Highlights of our Bandon time:
DUTCH OVEN lessons - Kudos to Linda and the cast iron team. You gave us great tips, increased our confidence (I went on to bake penne pasta one night in the redwoods), and fed us delicious grub. Thanks you!
NANCY & DONNA, our planners extraordinaire! Abundant thanks... as I told Nancy, it was well-planned but not overly planned, if you know what I mean.
DONNA - Who said to our fuzzybutt Keeper, "Hey! I was a b***h before you were a dog!" Donna's full of fun and laughter.
SHARON HERMAN - Mahalo for the pomigranit martini! Just wait till Graysland... next time we expect to see bartenders in coconut bras and grass skirts! That includes ERIC B!
MEXICAN TRAIN - to 82 y/o JOHN, who dang near took us all down, kudos for keeping us on our toes. Oley! Thanks to ADONNA for hosting the games.
LORN - who contributed some mightly fine good reads to the Book Exchange, including one of my fav authors, Geraldine Brooks ("March"). Thanks to all who came by with books - it was great fun meeting all of you, and I was able to offload remaining books at Prairie Creek Crampgrounds, as their welcome kiosk had a proper book exchange.
BOB & all great photogs - LOVE the pix that you provided that we failed to take. (Below is one I did take of the inside of our 12 y/o Casita - all plaid-ed up!)

Oh, and special RECOGNITION & THANKS to MA NATURE who kindly provided us with 13 straight days of sunshine on the first long roadtrip vacation we've taken in years... today, much-needed light rain falls on Langley and my garden is happy again.

All in all we loved our time together.
Thanks to each and every one of you - see you again next year, if not sooner!
