Fall Break will begin for many Henderson families this week. For those of you travelling, please keep in mind that the "bad guys" have Facebook too. Don't post vacation photos, tag yourself at locations out of town, or anything about your travel plans. This lets the bad guys know that your home will be empty and makes it a prime target for a burglary. Make arrangements with someone to check on your home while you are away. Unplug unnecessary electronics, turn off water, make sure pets are properly cared for, and stop your mail/newspaper delivery too. Last, but not least, please share and enjoy yourself!
