Wilmette Residents Shaken by Phone Calls

Not much news from Wilmette these days, and that's probably good. Nevertheless, word comes via the local newspaper that several Wilmette residents have been badly shaken by recent phone calls received in the middle of the night. When the resident answered the phone a frightening beep was heard, followed by a pause, then another frightening beep. Then, in homes with multiple phone lines, the same thing happened on each line. At least one resident refused to be identified for fear of further harassment. The Police Chief said it was unlikely criminal charges would be filed, after good detective work revealed these calls were from telemarketing companies.

Did I make a mistake naming this blog? Is there any wonder why there aren't many entries?

Kind of makes you wonder what the paper covers in a slow news week.
