I understand that there have been quite a few thefts in the valley, especially of fuel and tools. It seems to be happening more frequently, and we need to be aware. Keep a watchful eye out for your neighbor’s property as well as your own, and report any unusual activity if you should see it. That’s what neighbors are supposed to do, don’t you think?


I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I would like to wish all the readers a very Happy New Year.
