Homeowners beware: This past weekend, our house was inadvertently rented (by our management company) to a large group of young people celebrating their high school graduation. They were from the Birmingham area and were there not with parents, but with a so-called chaperone, absolutely against our rental policy. Turns out this man works for the same group that chaperoned the Holloway girl's high school trip to Aruba, where she disappeared. When I called the house on Friday night, the chaperone was not on the premises, nor were any parents. When they checked out the next day, the house and the swimming pool area were littered with beer bottles and broken glass. Some chaperone. Thankfully, no one was hurt. I cannot imagine what parents are thinking to send their children off in this kind of situation, one that would seem to invite a tragedy. We will certainly be doing our own screening of folks who rent our house in the future. The parents of these children were lucky; the Holloways were not.
