    I’m Chris Jones, one of the arson victims of this article–arsoned on November 11, 2010 and July 3, 2011. I also have recently been illegally logged. The saying,

    “Some people have all the luck, they just don’t get burned”,

    does not apply to me, but it does seem to apply to one of the ex-presidents of our road association, living nearby me and John Weckerly.

    Consider the following regarding this ex- president:

    1. November 16, 2010: According to the ex-president, he came up from his MA residence to confront John Weckerly regarding alleged criminal mischief. Shortly after the confrontation my garage door was set on fire, allegedly by John Weckerly.

    Ex-president’s camp structure: unburned.

    2. July 3, 2011: my camp is really torched.

    Ex-president’s camp structure: unburned.

    Perhaps this is explained by the ex-president coincidentally being present, as witnessed , to protect his camp.

    3. July 20,2011: John Weckerly, who dislikes logging noise, allegedly torches the camp of another road association member across the street from ongoing logging operations on the 50 acre land tract of the ex-president.

    Ex-president’s camp structure: unburned.

    These are only two camps with structures on this side road.

    4. August 3, 2011: John Weckerly, allegedly torches a fire marshal car while noisy chipping operations are going on at the camp of the ex-president.
    Ex-president’s camp structure: unburned.

    In order to commit this arson, Weckerly allegedly, as revealed by dog scent, went down past the ex-president’s camp without burning it, proceeded past the chipping operations where I have been told the three fire marshals were stationed , and allegedly set fire to the fire marshal car. Allegedly he returned along the same route to go back to his camp. All of this was allegedly done without being seen by the three fire marshals. Quite a feat. And even more puzzling: How would he have any pre-knowledge that an unmarked Fire Marshal car was parked past Joe Couture’s structure and the chipping operation in the first place?

    A lot of luck going on here except for me whose luck has really been quite poor since I took the road association to task for illegally charging increased road fees.
