  1. Read this weeks report with breathless anticipation only to get to the last item and discovered there were no calls to the Stinchfield Road in Chesterville, LOL.

  2. @David, me too!

  3. I didn't hear the music from 2 doors down this past week, so maybe he has decided to start being a nice neighbor. I won't hold my breath for that though.

  4. Make it three, enquiring minds want to know...was their a vacation by one of the two neighbors, speaker trouble, what happened? Might need a Netflix documentary on this someday.

  5. South Main Street in Stromg is becoming the new stinchfield hill road

  6. Don’t worry...be prepared for all the firearms noise complaints. It that of time of year that hunters start sighting in their rifles and practice for the upcoming seasons. And not to mention that while being out of work and sheltered in place, what a better time to kill a few cans?

    Nuff Said...

  7. @JL, probably not at all hours of the night.

  8. Sheriff Nichols, you've got to be easier on the posse. I don't know how 6 deputies (if I counted correctly) can cover so much area and satisfy as many complaints.Make sure you keep good horses under them and some in reserve. Do they get a coffee break? Probably had one at least due to "all quiet on Stinchfield Hill" By the looks of your weekly report we can all see that "this isn't their first Rodeo!"

  9. Hmmm... I'm guessing that whatever stores the noise makers usually go to was out of Natty Ice and/or Allens Coffee Brandy!!! There's a night ruined. Might as well go to bed and try to get some stupid juice again tomorrow!!
