    "The Informant!" the latest film from director Steven Soderbergh ("Ocean's 11"), is a strangely funny take on corporate whistleblower movies like Michael Mann's "The Insider." This isn't a spoof movie or anything, though.

    Traffic stops. If any part of a police officer's job can be called routine, it's pulling over motorists for a faulty taillight, unsafe start or excess lead in their foot.

Local officers learned skills this summer that lessen those dangers.
