Today's word on journalism

"I've always been all over the lot in my writing. Except for poetry -- even though they say all the old-time sportswriters use plenty of it. Maybe it's just part of what we do."

A ruined shirt leads to conflict and possibly to court

By Trevor Brasfield

April 23, 2007 | LOGAN -- A shirt went to a dry cleaner, only to come back ruined. According to a report to police, that led to a threat.

This was the scene Wednesday when a customer complained about his ruined shirt to the dry-cleaning shop. The customer's daughter, who also works at the cleaners, was the one who took the shirt in for the customer. The customer then said the shirt was ruined, and according to the owner of the cleaners the customer said he would wait until the owner left the building to take "care of [him] in the parking lot."

When this incident was reported hours later, Logan Police Officer Casey Carlsen contacted the customer. The customer told the officer he did not make any threats and would take the matter to civil court.
