Traverse City Record-Eagle

---- — Put sand elsewhere

Last year the Leland harbor was dredged and the spoils were deposited south of the harbor. This year the Leland harbor is being dredged, again, and the spoils are being deposited south of the harbor. Next year?

I am not an engineer but it doesn’t take specialized knowledge to figure out if you dump sand “upriver” from a harbor Mother Nature will bring the sand right back.

It’s time to confess

I don’t know who you are. But I followed the tire tracks you left after hitting Kellyann Boyce-Hurlbert. Here is what it looks like to me:

You had to have aimed at her — there is no other reason to go into the bike lane. Maybe you thought it would be fun to scare her; I don’t know. But you did hit her. Then she got tangled up in your vehicle somehow and didn’t go away. You got scared, turned the corner — she still didn’t go away. Then you swerved left and right to shed your vehicle of this person screaming in pain; she still didn’t go away. Then you turned into the alley, she finally stopped screaming, then you ran.

The act of an uncaring coward! There’s only one way to find peace: call the police and turn yourself in. The longer you wait, the worse this will get, in your mind and in the criminal justice system. You cannot escape!

This community is looking for you. Hundreds paid tribute to Kellyann recently; they are all looking for you. You will find no respite, except to call the police and confess.
