A going-insane resident of the Dorchester neighborhood pleads for help:
For almost a year now, there has been a "cheep" every 30 seconds here on Jones Hill. Really - I first heard it last July or August. It sounds exactly like a smoke detector with a low battery, only it hasn't died in 10 months. I have no idea if there's anything the city can do about this, but it was awful last summer, tolerable in the winter and spring when windows are closed, and now that summer's here again, it would be nice to be outside or have windows open and not hear a chirp every 30 seconds. Maybe there's an intern who needs a project and could hunt it down and destroy it for us?
