We are (tishcartened to see these lhings hal)pening but, neverthe- less, feel the necd to alert our residenls to be ou the wqtch for suspicious activities at unusual hol]rs ileal' l lnocell [lied suit/nler homes.

The remainder of the love- ly weekemt was spent at Soule's home and the Kneppers departed with warm memories of a number of "first sights", fishing on the :ound and a substantial supply of fresh oysters. Apparently the Don Johnstons just don't have an "in" with the weatherman, for practically every ,01anneal visit to their summer cot- LaKe has brought out Ills worst side.
