June 1, 2006

By Shelly Feuer Domash

Street racing of automobiles has been an American tradition since the early 1950s and probably long before. It’s not hard to imagine the first owners of Model T Fords staring each other down as they ran their “Tin Lizzies” down the rutted roads of the early 20th century. But the hey-day of street racing was the “I Like Ike” era when kids in souped-up Chevys and Fords would race for car titles and teenage glory.

Lighting The Way  

June 1, 2006

By Scott Smith

More than 25 years ago I enlisted in the Air Force Reserve as a security policeman. Back then a duty light was the two “D” cell, right angle light. If you were able to track down the straight version, man you were on the cutting edge of light technology.

By Bart Bjorkman

As a law enforcement officer, what are the odds that the next person you stop has a concealed weapon within easy reach?
