May 31, 2016 (Lemon Grove) -- The "History Alive" lecture series concludes on June 2 at 7 p.m. in the H. Lee House Cultural Center, 3205 Olive, Lemon Grove, with a hilarious look back at Lemon Grove's criminal element, 1955 - 1964.

Helen Ofield asks, "Where are the great cat burglars?"  From the weekly "Crime Log" edited by the old pro, Max Goodwin, in the former Lemon Grove Review, she learned that would-be crooks were consistently caught in air vents, dumpsters, closets and you-name-it while attempting to purloin all manner of goods, from the ridiculous to the ludicrous.

Bring your funny bone and anybody else, age 18 and over, who wants to join the line-up.

The First Drug Arrest?

A man broke in to the medical or dental office and was arrested walking along the railroad tracks carrying a pillowcase full of pills! I think his name was Royal Broten.
