Hmmm I did see two white kids in the back of Schilling around 5:30 that day. I did think it was strange. They were around the metal container by the field.

Any word on the other break-ins yet? I heard that Graham and another school got hit this week too.

Something was going on at Graham. We heard the alarm ringing for about an hour and saw what looked like a fire truck over there. I sure hope the alarm is monitored because people here no longer call the police since the police have had a nasty tendency to treat those who call them like criminals.
