When Mike Tarnowski was driving down Kettleman Lane and saw a Lodi police motorcycle pull out behind him Tuesday morning, he didn't have to slow down.

"My wife said, 'Is that cop following you?' I said, 'Yeah, but I'm going the speed limit,'" the Lockeford resident said.

    Well, well, well...Seems the powers that be at LNS can't take a little heat. Nice move deleting my posts, you're just fueling the fire.So I set up this phony e-mail addy to test a theory. Seems to me ever since I started posting on here my junk mail went thru the roof. So I created this e-mail addy to see if it was the LNS selling addy's. Guess what? They are. In the 5 days since creating this addy and registering on LNS I have recieved 18 junk e-mails and had 38 e-mails go directly into the "spam" folder.Please tell us LNS, how could this have happened when I only used this addy to register for LNS? Are you selling our addy's?Are you folks getting e-mails entitled;-Fitness Report-Nursing Degree-Military Benfits-Camyoo-Credit Report CenterIf you are then we you now know where these leaches are getting your addy from. Richie Hanna and your LNS!Any comments Richie or are you just going to delete these too?

    dogs: Yeah, it sounds like a funny joke in there somewhere. But nope, the photo wasn't Photoshopped! The guy was quite surprised, had a good laugh and voluntarily shook the officer's hand as he said thanks.
