Limping Larry was spotted limping through the center of Forestville last week and citizens are concerned.
Residents believe Larry’s limp casts Forestville in a poor light because he is faking it. They say he goes from limping on his right leg one day to limping on is left leg the next. Due to the attention he receives many feel Limping Larry has no motivation to stop limping. Consequently they asked city leaders to do something so Larry will cease embellishing his limp. Leaders have resisted these pleas so residents have taken matters into their own hands.
A woman who lives in an apartment complex near Pine Lake called the police and reported that someone was limping in the area.
Minister Reggie, the self-appointed “Limp Czar” on Broad Street, reported the matter to NBC News. “It shows the community is taking this very seriously,” he said.
Another resident Silas Minutia created SpottedLimpingLarryApp. “It lets people post geotagged footage of Larry’s last known whereabouts,” according to the apps disclaimer.
Limping Larry is famous because he walks with great difficulty by favoring his right leg over his left leg or vice versa. No one is sure.
It is rumored he uses the limp to procure food, preferential parking and companionship.

Circle Street is a .3 mile road off of Central Street that is home to the Forestville Cemetery, the Zion Church and a little over twenty houses.
However the Friends of Forestville, a local community group, recently had Circle Street surveyed and believe the name of the road should be changed. “It does not go in a circle it just loops so why call it Circle Street? It’s dishonest and must be renamed,” said Silas Minutia the group’s president.
“When drivers turn on to this road they expect to be driving in a circle but they soon discover it’s a polygon at best. It sends a message to everyone that the people of Forestville are liars,” Minutia said.
The Friends of Forestville wrote several letters to the Department of Public Works demanding the road be renamed, but the letters went unanswered so they plan to start a petition to have the road name changed.
“Euclid was a famous mathematician and he wrote some of the most studied books in the history of mankind. I suggest the DPW read one and discover the circle. This is embarrassing,” Minutia sniffled to supporters while preparing the petition.

Silas Minutia is going to publish a book about theoretical words. Theoretical words are words which are not real and only exist in theory.
The author is hoping that in the course of reading through the white boring pages with no illustrations, images or photos, readers will discover words that cannot be found in any dictionary. The book will be published in July and will be available in book stores.
This is going in to be a difficult read for some residents. Are you reading this Mitchell Luby?

Stormy conditions Thursday afternoon in Forestville
Winter Storm Hercules visited Forestville parts of Thursday and Friday leaving 5 inches of snow and bitter temperatures.
Temperatures in the ville dropped below zero Saturday night and the cold air is expected to remain in place today.
“I am frustrated with this weather,” said a pointed and exasperated Silas Minutia following his shift at Mr. Bubbles Car Wash.

Good morning Forestville!
A wintry mix for the village today, with a chance of snow and sleet. Temperature around 30. Northeast winds at about 5 mph. Enjoy!
I bumped into Silas Minutia moments ago during breakfast (Panera Bread). Silas is known to Forestville as the drummer in My Mother’s Favorite Orchestra (MMFO). He also played in Severed Head, Free Drinks and Fisted Five. Unfortunately he may be leaving MMFO due to creative differences. I did some graphic work for Severed Head years ago (see below). Does this mean Severed Head is getting back together? Hmmm.
My travels take me to Newington today. Yuck.
