I read my hometown paper rather religiously; Seacoast Online has lots of local news that I find interesting related to construction ordinances, school news (particularly the consolidation kerfuffle with a neighboring district–our administrative district is full enough with two towns, thank you, no need to add a third town), and the best part: the Portsmouth, NH police blotter.  Mostly I like to read it because every three months or so someone I knew in high school will turn up and well, schadenfreude.  And once in a while, they will post an item like the one below:

June 28, 2008, 11:58 p.m. — Officers were asked to check on a disorderly male on Congress Street and found him to be sober and just dancing.
