Hoover's Police Logs

Don't know that I've ever noticed the Arcata Eye's online police logs before, although I stop by the Eye's web site four or five times a month. Well, I might have read the logs before but just wasn't paying much attention.

Actually reading all the entries this time, I found Kevin Hoover's slightly enhanced police logs an entertaining read. A little bit more there than just the basics reported by the other papers.

It looks like he even went so far as to incorporate a bunch of them into a book. Not much info offered on the exact contents of the book. Inquiring minds would like to know more. Anybody out there read Hoover's book?

His police reports are great - and the book is, or should be, at any local bookstore. They make great gifts!

The Arcata Eye's police logs have always been funny and I used to subscribe to the Eye just to read them.

His police log books contain exactly what you would think they contain, police logs.

They're not a straight copy and paste. He has weeded out the duller items. If memory serves, one or both of the books are organized by topic rather than date.

Fred, the Arcata Eye is a wonderful regional newspaper. Kevin's police log is legendary.
I believe he has produced two books on the subject. I may be wrong, though.

They are great, I gave them as x-mas presents to the out of town family so they could get a sense of Arcata. They sell the books at Murphy's Market in Sunnybrae.
