"Always carry a can opener," advises former United States spy and Sedgebrook resident, Phil Wertz, "you never know when it will come in handy."

He was charged with keeping spies, Nazi's, criminals and malcontents off the payroll. "Fortunately, the Germans were the best record keepers in the world," said Phil.
