Unjustice Court. Nominate your favorite person to be “jailed” in Rotary Park Friday May 19 until they raise enough money to make bail. Arrest warrants will be available in the Gridley Herald and at the Chamber Office for free. They can be purchased and filled out before or the day of the court. “Offenders” will be arrested by either the Volunteer Police or the Fire Department and brought to Rotary Park to stand before Judge Dean Price. They will be sentenced, jailed and fed water or soft drinks and pizza. They will have to arrange for their bail to be paid before they can be discharged.
