Call the cop in charge with complaints

QUESTION: What happens when cop cars (cruisers) break the law, when they are speeding or not blinking (signaling)? Where do you call when it is the cops?
- Uwe

ANSWER: You call the police! Get all the pertinent facts including the cruiser’s number, location, specifics of what happened, date and time and anything else essential. Contact the nonemergency number of the closest police substation and request to speak to the supervisor. You can remain anonymous if you choose.

You have to be kidding. Anonymous? Some rogue cop could find out who you are and make life really difficult. All the cops would need to do is hit *69 to find out who you are. It probably shows up on their caller ID, too.

A reader who's definitely staying anonymous

This is off topic, but if you look to your left when heading north on I-25 right near the Pro Rodeo exit, on the side of the hill there is a small round mud structure with an opening - looking kind of like an old clay fire oven. What is it? How old is it? Whose is it?

Otowi, I have been wondering for quite a while what that klin is also. Hopefully we will get a response soon.

It's a good question and I was able to track down this answer for a previous column. Here you go:

It’s a beehive/honeycomb coking oven where ore was cooked when the area was the Pikeview Mine complex from 1897 to 1957. It is one of the last surface remains from this area’s rich mining past. Coking coal was heated at an extremely high temperature and the coke/carbon remaining was pure enough to be used for smelting ore in the production of iron and steel.
Darrell Green says that in the mid-1960s, his parents leased the property, which had a two-story house below the oven. His mother, Bernice Wollen, told family stories about saving numerous animals that had fallen into the oven hole. Green recalls that his now-deceased father could ride his appaloosa horses across the 500 acres all the way to the Flying W Ranch property to the west.
