The Department of Planning and Natural Resources applies the designation "Areas of Particular Concern" to geographical places and spaces that have significant natural or cultural attributes. It's supposed to be a means of protecting them from environmental attack by human beings and their mechanical means.
Mandahl Pond on St. Thomas's North Side has been so designated. And so, Mandahl resident Sharon Hupprich was astounded and appalled when she found a week ago that someone had bulldozed a 20-foot-wide strip of bush alongside the pond and brought in materials that looked as if they could be used to create a concrete dock.

5 MORE K-9 RECRUITS ARRIVE
