I know it’s cliché but I do remember
way back when you did not have to lock your homes let alone
your car doors but alas it’s a new millennium and crime
has found its way to our small hamlet once again. A crime wave
of burglarized cars has hit Kilkare Road residents on several
occasions within the last couple of months.
Some of the homes in that area are fairly remote; in fact,
a resident actually caught someone rifling through his car
last week at approximately 5:00 a.m. one morning. And his car
was parked quite a ways from the street up a long driveway.
Unfortunately the criminal escaped but I’m sure this
creepy burglar would attempt to find their way into cars or
even homes anywhere in town so everyone please do not leave
valuables in your cars and lock your cars and homes. Let’s
watch out for each other and please keep alert of any suspicious
activity and immediately call the authorities.
After many months of planning, the Sunol Glen School Community

Do people write “wash me” on the rear window of
your car? Do you have a black car like mine that shows every
speck of dirt? If you answered yes to either question then

student council car wash this Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30
p.m. Cars are only $5.00 and SUV’s and vans are $10.00.
A May 19 “Spring Bash” hosted by Sunol Glen School
art teacher Darlene Wexner and her daughter, Annie was a attended
by well over 30 students from Sunol Glen School and Pine Valley
Middle School in San Ramon, where Annie attends seventh grade.
The students were asked to bring their spare change to the
party in an effort to collect a donation for a former Sunol
Glen student, who is now a freshman in college and in need
of a transplant. In that one evening the kids collected a whopping
$300.00. Way to go!
Oh I know everyone in Sunol is so anxious to find out why
a certain movie film crew has been seen all over town for the
last month, but you are just going to have to wait until my
next column and you will be pleasantly surprised.
