TIP OF THE WEEK
When going away on vacation, leave the impression that someone is at home. Cancel your mail and newspaper. Mail and newspapers piling up will be noticed. Filling out a simple form with the post office and calling the newspaper circulation department can put a hold on delivery until your return. Tell a trusted neighbor to be on the look-out for anything suspicious.
