    Comment: We should add Arson to the list of rural crimes. We have just lost a second lot of straw on one of our units. This time 4 separate stacks of 260 bales each were deliberately set on fire last Sunday. The fire brigade ended up having to leave 2 tenders in attendance for half the day to ensure as it burned out the fire did not spread to neighbouring field of standing corn. This is costly to both individuals and the community.
