Solution very simple...Offer a $5,000.00 reward and sit back and answer the phone. I'm there are many know who did it.

Now, once you get them...get their parents to write a check to cover 100% of the damages plus the cost to catch the arson's, that includes the reward money.

Thanks, Julia from Alamo

Dear Readers,
Very surprisingly this article pales in comparison to the recent rooftop vandalism at Diablo Vista Middle School to their HVAC system to the tune of FIFTY TO ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS to repair!!! (This is the estimate the principal has reportedly gotten.) If anyone has any information on this, please do not hesitate to contact the Danville police department or DV's principal. With the budget cuts our schools have, this will unfortunately most likely cut into children's education funds.

Hi Beth,

Admittedly, I did not know about this. Thank you for the tip and be assured that I will call Lt. Jeff Moule about this tomorrow.

Year round schools would put in end to all these bored rich kids.
