Decries theft

To the Editor:

I was loathe to believe this, but after two thefts I am now forced to believe that thieves support Mitt Romney. I had my Obama sign stolen from my front yard several weeks ago, when yard signs were up everywhere. So two weeks ago I went to the Democratic office downtown and although they had run out of signs, the young man at the office went back home and brought me one of his. I put it up, again in my front yard because I live on a busy street, but this time I secured it amidst my lavender bushes. In order to steal it the thief would have to trample my plants. And they did! Both signs snatched after dark.  Friends suggested it was kids out halloweening. Not true. My neighbor had a tempting Republican array, and that was left undisturbed both times. But my single Obama sign, stolen twice. Apparently those who steal from others, be they Wall Street tycoons or the morons wandering my street, are not democratic!

Wonderful event

To the Editor:

Thank you, La Grande Downtown Merchants, for the gift of your time, energy and resources to give us the “treat” of the Halloween festivities Wednesday afternoon all along Adams Avenue. You have created a wonderful community event for children and parents, and all who want to enjoy the spirit of sharing this town offers.
