    That’s good to know regarding the egging. Great job by someone to get good information to the police. Unfortunately this is the last we’ll probably hear about to vandals. It would be nice to know what charges were issued, whether they are prosecuted, tried, and sentenced. It would be nice if they were named too. Maybe you can follow up on these questions. The same would apply to the car theft case. Ken Lauffer SM
