MAYFAIR — We received much needed precipitation last week. It slowed down farming a wee bit, but the moisture was welcome. Many are performing the tasks of land rolling and spraying the newly germinated crops.

Who likes to have break-ins and stuff stolen from their property? My family cabin amongst others, not just this past winter but even in broad daylight when many owners are summer residents, have culprits walking around trying to steal whatever their hearts desire. One guy had metal rods in his bathroom window sheared off. Now, that s what you call bold, especially during the day. Most are young offenders, so the law isn’t too hard on them. Apparently, many are repeat offenders. The judge is too lenient on them, but perhaps if his/her places got broken into, punishment might be harsher. Rules have to get more strict and enforced. This is occurring in Chamakese Resort, Chitek Lake.
