I found an iPad on the side of the road while on my walk on Pond Meadow Road in Ivoryton. There's a green sticker on the back that says "Aiden". It looks like it fell out of the car or something that would have had it skid across the road. It's in decent shape for such an accident.

A REALLY GOOD "CAUSE" TO DONATE TO WOULD BE HOUSING! THERE'S NO HOUSING FOR PEOPLE IN ESSEX, DEEP RIVER & CHESTER UNLESS YOU ARE OVER 65, OR HAVE AN ANNUAL INCOME OF MORE THAN 65,000. ANY LESS AND AT LEAST A 1/3 OF YOUR INCOME IS GOING TO KEEP A TINY STUDIO OVER YOUR HEAD! IN ESSEX THERE IS NO HOUSING! THEY ARE BUILDING PLAINS ROAD CONDOS BUT I SERIOUSLY DON'T THINK THAT ONLY ALOTTING PERHAPS 6 OUT OF MAYBE 13 APTS IS GOING TO SOLVE OUR HOUSING ISSUE WITH THE OTHER 7-9 UNITS GOING AT MARKET RATE! HAS ANYONE LOOKED IN THE SOUP KITCHEN IN DEEP RIVER LATELY? EVERY DAY IT WAS OPEN PRIOR TO COVID IT WAS STANDING ROOM ONLY. HOLIDAYS AT THE CHURCH IN SAYBROOK, DISTRIBUTION CENTERS IN CLINTON THE LINE WRAPS AROUND THE PARKING LOT 3 TIMES & NUMBERS ARE HANDED OUT GO UP & OVER 200! IF YOU'RE 50 THERE'S NOTHING LEFT BUT LIMP GREENS. ITS ATROCIOUS THE FOOD, HOUSING, AND POVERTY THAT EXISTS RIGHT UNDER EVERYONE'S NOSES HERE ! PEOPLE JUST DON'T WANT TO LOOK! ITS A " TOURIST" TOWN & BIG MONEY IS MADE EVERY SUMMER HERE! I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE DIVIDERS BETWEEN THE ESSEX FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THE EXIT OFF OF RT 9 ( EXIT 3) LOOKING "LOVELY"; I WANT TO SEE THAT LITTLE GIRL AND HER BROTHER THAT CAME OUT OF THE PORTAPOTTY AT THE TOWN HALL HAVE A PLACE BESIDES THE LIBRARY TO SIT ALL DAY UNTIL THEY CAN EAT JUST TO STAY SAFE ARM AS THEY RETURN TO THE PARK N RIDE TO SLEEP FOR THE NIGHT IN THE VAN WITH THEIR DOG & THEIR PARENTS.
