To the Editor:

In this season of Thanksgiving, today we are especially grateful for an alert neighbor. My husband was in the backyard and I had gone on errands when the UPS truck left two packages on our front porch.

The packages contained Christmas gifts which we had ordered. Mere minutes after the delivery our neighbor saw two young "men" go onto the porch, pick up the packages and walk away from our house.

She had seen them in the neighborhood on other occasions and immediately confronted them and rescued our packages. These acts are what we hear of in cities but never expect to experience in our town. They must not have been taught the commandment which states "Thou shall not steal." Please do not go onto private property and steal anything as it certainly is not yours to steal. We must all be aware as to what is happening around our neighborhoods.
