I happened to drive by Highland Park United Methodist Church at noon on Sunday, just as services were ending. The state trooper stopping traffic on Hillcrest so parishioners could cross the street did not strike me as out of the ordinary. What did strike me as odd was the guy in a non-descript uniform (HP DPS? Private security? I can’t say) who was standing on the corner of Mockingbird and Abbott. He looked odd because there was a curly cord running from his jacket to an electrical box on the light pole. My wife theorized that he was controlling the traffic lights, making the Mockingbird drivers stop whenever a gaggle of churchgoers needed to cross. What power!
