This letter is in response to Jerome Kinderman's column on Wednesday in the News-Sentinel.
Wow, I am surprised to read of your own experience with a burglar and of the emotional toil that takes, plus Betsie Grimes having been burglarized twice in one month.
My experiences with a very persistent and very unwelcome burglar have gone on periodically for two years — despite changing all locks twice professionally, getting an alarm system installed, getting new garage door openers repeatedly and having the codes changed, too. This wily thief enters illegally at will.
This has been a very bedeviling time for me — police have been informed more than once. Even though I have a very good idea who the perpetrator is, I have no proof for the police. This must be a very angry thief because my microwave was not stolen but attacked repeatedly with a very sharp instrument. This is scary stuff.
My peace of mind, my sense of safety and my sense of security are certainly compromised, and these are terrible things to lose.
Congratulations to you on your venturing forth as a guest columnist for the Lodi News-Sentinel. My guess is that your column will be very popular and well-read.
