Living in a town full of thieves

I am getting very upset at the pranksters in this town who think it is funny to steal the lights that line my driveway. I overlooked it when someone was playing mailbox baseball. I went out and bought a new one that was plastic and harder to break. I also overlooked it when someone took my driveway lights and put them in my neighbor’s tree. At least we got them back that time. We have replaced our driveway lights at least three times and it is becoming rather expensive. We are retired with limited income. I don’t understand what is so fascinating about these lights!

I guess we now live in a town full of thieves. That is the only thing I can conclude.

Ashamed of this town,

Debbie Ball

We would also like to thank all the businesses that donated raffle prizes, this event would not have been a success without your help.
