Kersting Court Lowdown: Once Again Chelsea Plays Her Bagpipes Under The Watchful Eye Of The SMPD


You may recall that Sierra Madre's favorite bagpiper had been summarily ordered to cease and desist from her playing and vacate Kersting Court by the local gendarmes a few weeks ago. This was not well received in the community, and much unhappy commenting occurred not only here, but on certain Facebook sites as well.

After all, Sierra Madre is a place rightfully celebrated for its support of the arts.

That said, Chelsea was playing again yesterday, and the SMPD was out as well. But as far as we know the performance was allowed to take place without any unfortunate incidents.

The backstory is Chelsea was robbed a while back, and in order to get to Scotland where bagpipes are not only understood but revered as well, she has been busking downtown in hopes of raising some travel cash.

Here are a couple of photos commemorating yesterday's event.

As far as we know Chelsea was not arrested. At least not this time.

But please remember, if you hear something, say something. Hopefully nice.

  2. Trump fail, troll flail n' wail:

    World stocks were set for a second day of losses on Friday after an exodus of U.S. executives from presidential business councils dealt a fresh blow to hopes of tax reform and deadly attacks in Barcelona hit shares in European tourism firms.

  17. Upland, California - A group has announced plans to hold a rally in Upland next month in support of President Donald Trump’s national security policies. An Act for America rally is being planned September 9, 2017 in Upland at the Madonna of the Trail, according to a Facebook post. Act for America, which stands for American Congress for Truth, calls itself a “national security organization.” Last June, a San Bernardino outlet of the group held the Inland March Against Sharia, which triggered counter protests and violence.

    But ACT for America is listed as the largest grassroots anti-Muslim hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups in the United States.
    The rally would be held at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Euclid Avenue, both major thoroughfares in the city. This event like this is likely to draw counter protestors which could present a safety concern.

    1. Anonymous libel. How dirt.

    2. It is unfortunate that the SMPD profiles people of color. How many times have you seen patrol cars and officers surrounding a person of color seated on the curb with his hands cuffed behind his back? To suggest that I am happy about this is a nasty lie.

      Delete
    3. A person of color making that awful noise would be sited because that would be called racists.

    4. Ha, 9:59, you are obviously not from Sierra Madre! lol

  23. 10:45am. Again, go climb back under your rock.
    Sad that WWII soldiers fought to save the likes of someone with your genetic material and thought process.
    It is the exact same mind controll that you gleefully spew, without a clear understanding that people just like you, are the problem. You sound just like the burning books mob mentality that exists when Dictators are brainwashing and grooming peons.
    Try studying history so that YOU don't repeat mindless dribble.
    Maybe go blow/inhale on a pipe, release your anxiety.
    Support your local piper's.

      BTW I find it ironic that a bunch of you racists are using tiki torches. Y'all can't even hate without appropriating another culture.
