Break-in of Car at Mt. Philo, Cartoon Complaint, Bean Farm

More Cars Broken Into at Mt. Philo
Two cars were broken into about 5 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot at Mount Philo. We were one of the unfortunate ones. My husband did the worst possible thing in leaving a wallet that he thought was hidden but evidently it was visible enough for them to see. Money was stolen but no cards. The other car with two young couples had a purse stolen with everything, including a passport. For us it was a nuisance, but for them pretty upsetting
The State Police and Shelburne police were notified.
As you know, this has been happening frequently. What can be done to prevent it?
Charlotte Senior Center Brings Smiles, Not Grimaces
The so-called cartoon in the October 21st edition of The Charlotte News portrays the exact opposite of what I’ve seen on the faces of folks going in to the much-used Senior Center. Friends meet to learn how to paint, exercise, diascuss local and/or national events, read the newspaper, etc. Tae cartoon is denigrating to not only seniors from Charlotte but to others from miles around who come to enjoy an alive and active center. There may be a good reason behind publishing this cartoon, but it eludes me. It will be interesting to see if other people of a “certain age” feel as I do.
Shirley Bean has asked us to clarify that the farm in the article “Bean Farm Moves Rapidly Toward Conservation” (The Charlotte News, October 21, 2010) is the former Norman Bean farm on Hinesburg Road, not the Charles Bean farm on Bean Road.
