I just read on Front Porch Forum that Walt and Julie Ackermann, who live just up Cabot Plains Road from the intersection with Brickett's Crossing Road, had cash, jewelry and guns stolen from their house yesterday - Friday the 17th. Apparently they were broken into around noon. We should all be warned to keep our doors locked and be watchful for anything unusual in our neighborhood or strangers lurking around. Surveillance cameras and/or a security system with a very loud alarm may help.
For people who have homes here at the pond, it may be a good idea to have someone you trust check your home from time to time if you are away for the winter. I haven't heard of any camps being targeted, but we have had problems here from time to time.
