Caught in the act for the week of Oct. 27, 2013

Thunder Mountain High School student Ryan Mayer unknowingly built a shack on state land. When he was informed that this unauthorized shack had to come down, Mayer was more than ready to put in the work required to remove the shack, along with a helpful friend, Nate Herron.

When High Tide Tattoo apprentice Devon Kasler saw a young porcupine in the Home Depot parking lot, in danger of being run over, Kasler didn’t let the little guy’s prickly nature stop him from helping. Kasler picked him up with his Carhartt jacket and carried him to a wooded area where he’d be safe.
