100 word fiction contest continues…. #100WFC 911 Call by Rhys At work, I received a 911 text from my wife. I tried calling, no answer. I alerted my boss, grabbed my leather and ran to my old Road King. Fired up, I blasted down the road for the 20-mile ride to the house. Weaving in and out of traffic and pushing the limits I flew home. Sliding to a stop I bolted through the front door. My wife trembling, pointed to the stairway. The puppy, his head sticking between the banister supports. I scrambled to free the little guy. To show his gratitude he peed. Riding back, had to laugh. I’ll take those 911 calls anytime. * * * Know past winners and read all entries ever published by visiting: https://www.bikernet.com/pages/100_Word_Fiction_Contest.aspx All you gotta do is subscribe to Bikernet’s free weekly newsletter and send in your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
by Valeria De Leon from https://fox43.com York – It’s the season of giving and one York County police department has a new ride thanks to a local organization. America’s 911 Foundation donated a brand new 2019 Harley-Davidson police motorcycle to the York City Police Department on Saturday. Each year, the organization gives away a motorcycle to police departments, this one is the 20th one they have donated to police. Chief Troy Bankert York City Police said the motorcycle unlike a vehicle, helps them spark a conversation with the community and better their relationship. “It gives us a good opportunity to interact with the community without being inside of a car, it’s more personal but at the same time it lets us have some mobility,” said Chief Bankert. “These are people who protect us and put their lives on the line every day,” said Roger Flick, America’s 911 Foundation promotions manager, “and they want to keep their community safe and we want to help them do that.” The organization also holds a motorcycle ride to remember those who lost their lives on September 11th. The York Police Department takes part in that ride, so organizers said they were more than happy to announce the winners of this year’s raffle.
