Jan Ballinger said when she saw the coverage of the massacre at Virginia Tech this week, she knew she had to do something. A manager at Office Depot since it opened five years ago, she formerly worked at Lowe's and was immediately reminded of what the store did for the community after the shooting in Columbine, Colorado. "We put out the word that we were offering free shipping for things people wanted to send to those students, just to let them know they were in our thoughts," Ballinger said.

Editor's note: Taken from the Danville 911 records, the Police Blotter represents a history of the initial calls and the information used by the dispatcher to send officers to investigate complaints. It is not necessarily an indication of what the officer found upon arrival at the scene, or of how the complaint may have been dealt with. This is what your police department faces on a daily basis. MARCH 28 12:16 a.m., officer out with an object in the road on the viaduct.

It's evident before even walking in the front door that Danville Pediatric Dentistry is not like most dentists' offices. Big, white letters in a font similar to a child's handwriting on a blue awning let you know you're in the right place. The sign is striking compared to those of the other offices in the complex, where names are displayed in simple, much smaller, white letters on glass doors. The differences don't stop there. Once inside Danville Pediatric Dentistry, it hardly looks like a dentist's office at all. An ocean-themed paradise complete with colorful aquatic murals on the walls, Danville Pediatric Dentistry has everything a kid could desire - a rice-filled sandbox in the lobby and a treasure chest full of goodies for the younger patients as well as an Internet/game cafe equipped with XBox and PlayStation2 for big brother and big sister.

A clerk was robbed at knifepoint at Country Hearth Inn on Hustonville Road around 1:30 a.m. today. Police say the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Detective A.J. Mullins with Danville Police said the clerk was working alone when a man entered the lobby, held a knife to her throat, and forced her to hand over the cash kept at the front desk. Mullins said the clerk wasn't harmed, but was very shaken up. "She only saw that he fled the lobby on foot. She didn't notice whether he left in a vehicle or not, because he threatened her if she looked," Mullins said.

It was just a drop in the bucket, maybe $20 in coins meant for the Boyle County Public Library's $2 million fundraising drive. But the chump who took the change jug from the library's front desk over the weekend deserves special mention for the pettiness of the crime during the giving season. "It's not a large amount of money, it's just the gall of it," said librarian Karl Benson. Benson said the collection bucket - a five-gallon water jug - was taken sometime over the weekend.

PAINT LICK - Response to the call for Garrard County World War II-era photos has been tremendous, said Rita Mackin Fox, who is compiling a book on her collection. Because the demand was so great at the last scanning session, Fox has scheduled two sessions in Lancaster from 12:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Garrard County Public Library. People can wait or leave photos and information in a marked envelope at the front desk at the library and pick them up after Saturday.

Dear Editor: I went to the local Adelphia office to pay my bill and inquired about the pending rate increase. The young lady at the front desk indicated that it would be on my next bill. I told her that I had requested that the city have a hearing on the increase. She told me that they wouldn't likely have a hearing because when Adelphia makes more money, the city does too. I pondered this for a while and finally concluded that we have the fox watching the hen house.
