4) In case you missed it: Police were forced to summons an 86-year-old resident for assault and battery after an altercation in the man’s home. Also, a former roommate discovered her gerbils had died of neglect after being left in the home. All that and more in yesterday’s police log.
5) Grand Canyon preserved: On this day in 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt declared the Grand Canyon a national monument. The park was part of Roosevelt’s environmental conservation initiative as president. When declaring the canyon a national monument, Roosevelt said, “Let this great wonder of nature remain as it now is. You cannot improve upon it. But what you can do is keep it for your children, your children’s children, and all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American should see.”
