Whew... that escalated quickly.

Yeah...There were horses and a man on fire and I stabbed a man in the heart!

Yeah, did you see that? Brick killed a guy!

@Truthiness ha! Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.

@Panatagraph Great story. Compelling, and rich.

Just so there is no confusion, this is not associated with the BPOE (Blessed and Protected Order of the Elks) Lodge # 281 which is currently sharing space with the Knights of Columbus on RT. Dunn Drive located on the south of town.


Thanks for putting this out there, Garth Bock. It's good people know the difference. While we're at clarifying, though, the "B" in "BPOE" is actually Benevolent. :)

osajia.....yep you are correct. I replied during a very busy day at work and am not sure why I typed that. The Pantagraph still has not made a very clear distinction that this is not the Elks Lodge #281 who are at the Knights of Columbus building.
