I have noticed that much of the land that is directly behind T D Bank, just off Warwick rd. and the dividing line between Hi Nella and Stratford, has been cleared. There is a small stream and heavily wooded area that separates the two towns, and I was led to believe is green acres, or was green acres. Recently I have seen many more examples of wild life in the land behind the Sterling Arms condo's. What is the status of that area and who is developing the land? It appears that many of the wild animals are being displaced. Any info will be apprecitated. thank you.

Yes, we who got away unscathed by Dobbs have happy memories, but he has another side, dark and predatory. Sue, if you had been a "boy named Sue," your experience with Dobbs would have marked you for life. Why do you suppose it was only young children who were on that property?
