Bad Boys Back in 1917: Gettin' In a "Peck of Trouble"

From the May 10, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"Unless some of the kids of DeKalb cease the practice of breaking the insulators on the Western Union telegraph company's property along the railroad, they are going to get into a peck of trouble.

"Of late several complaints have been made by linemen on the practice and unless it is stopped, some sleuth work will be done and the parents of the boys will be called in to donate a fine."

You know, though, it could have been girls who did it.  Why do boys always get the blame for such shenanigans?

I can almost hear the "Bad Boys" song from that TV show.
