From Boyce Street: I want to report that our car was burglarized on Friday night. My wife left it unlocked and the thieves stole all the change from the ashtray, and a personal check. They also rummaged through the kids’ dvds, but I don’t think they actually took any of them; they just left them strewn about. This is the third or fourth time this has happened to our cars. Each time the car had been left unlocked. Mostly the thieves just steal the change from the ashtray, but in the past they have also taken an iPod, and this time a check. It’s not so much the small amount of money and property we have lost, but the idea that someone is outside robbing us while we sleep is unnerving. We have gotten the impression that people are walking the street each night checking car door handles, taking things from the cars if they open. We are going to start leaving the porch light on at night to cast a little more light onto the cars in the driveway. I have filed a police report about this incident, although I have let others go by without filing. Ethan
Downtown neighborhoods are first targets for Street Light Reduction Program–
It’s a 4 year program and the downtown area where residents frequently walk to services, restaurants and entertainment- have been put first in line for the
reductions. The West End has already had our lights adjusted. If a light pole has a yellow tag attached- then the light has been turned off. A blue tag states that the light has been put on timer. Lights will remain on during normal active hours (dusk to midnight) and off during typical non-activehours (midnight to either dawn or 5:30 a.m.)
