I'll bet this group of kids are actually residents of our own Palo Alto, probably from well to do families. The strong stance on not sharing what cit they reside in suspicious. I know I have read plenty of stories about trouble caused by EPA or MV kids in the past.

I'll take the other side of that bet.

Opulence borders Poverty. What else can we expect?

By all means, let's add charges of conspiracy.

In the good old days, a conspiracy was Watergate.

I was walking through cubberly the other day and three youths had a fire extinguisher and were spraying walls, the ground, I think even a car, they got rid of the extinguisher in a nearby school and ran for it. Kids these days up to no good, I wonder if they were possibly the same kids?

Let any man who never did a stupid and/or illegal thing in his teens be the next to comment on this heinous act.

Even if we may have done things that were not smart, that doesn't mean we can't decide that these actions are improper. These juveniles need to be held accountable for their actions.

EPA residents per the Daily. Wonder why PAW won't reveal that.

It just came to our attention this week that a package was delivered to us in January.
The sender contacted us, requesting a response but we never received it.
The delivery co. had documentation showing it had been delivered!
We live on University Ave, and have never had a problem with drop-off deliveries.
We will be more conscientious in the future.

We've had 5-6 package stolen off out porch in the past 6 months, anytime we are expecting a package, we are now extra careful to check for the delivery and bring it inside immediately.

Tish -as far as the kids spraying the fire extinguisher at Cubberly - kids have been making mischief for generations, this one is no worse ( and maybe better since they have less time to just "hang out" with friends).
