Paula Reed: Please return glasses


To the editor:

On Oct. 25, a friend and I held a yard sale across from the school administration building. Someone who visited the sale that day must have needed a pair of prescription glasses because they took mine off the back of the stove in the kitchen.

I would greatly appreciate having those returned. There will be no questions asked and no charges filed if the person would simply drop them off at Victory Vision so they can be returned to me.

If you need a pair of glasses, the Lions Club here locally can assist you with the cost. Unfortunately, I don't think I qualify for assistance from the Lions, and my insurance will not help me pay for another pair for two more years since I just got those a couple months ago.

The glasses have a rose colored frame and darken in the sunlight. I need them for driving. They are not reading glasses - they only help with distance vision.

For help getting your own glasses, you can call the Department of Social Services at 824-8282. They will direct you to the Lions Club or other services to assist you.

Thank you.

Paula Reed

Ms. Reed, I don't mean to be a know what, but have you looked at the possibility that maybe they were knocked behind your stove?? You mentioned they were sitting on the back of your stove and it just crossed my mind that maybe they ended up there. If that is not the case, then I hope they are returned to you. You've also done a good job in mentioning the Lion's club and the fact that you can get glasses through them if need be. People may not know that if they have old glasses sitting in a drawer or stuffed in a box in a closet, the glasses can be donated to the Lion's club and they will go to someone in need.

I really hope you find your glasses. I know when I have lost something, often my first thought is someone took them. But you had them on the stove? Good luck!

Dave, Ms. Reed and I have already had this talk. She said they moved everything in the house as it was being vacated. No glasses. I too feel bad for her. I have wondered about home owners insurance. Could they help you out or would whom ever owned the house have such a high deductable that the glasses would be cheaper to just be paid for. I understand your insurance won't buy you another pair but what about the home that possible?
