Elaine DeuPree: Disappointed by theft


To the editor:

I am extremely disappointed in the person or people who stole the American flag from the carved bear on Sixth Street midday Sunday, Sept. 11.

First, the disrespect shown to our flag and country saddens me. Second, no one has a right to come on to my property and take or deface it.

I would like to see this person or people punished to the full extent of the law.

Shame on you, whoever did this that bear is like a piece of Craig and for you to take something from it is an insult to all of us. You will be caught and punished, take the flag back and maybe you can be forgiven......

I agree, take it back. That bear has brought many a smile to my face, Mrs. Deupree even decorated it for my daughters birthday once. It is a landmark and hopefully the lowlife who would steal of all things an American Flag on September 11th, will be harassed enough to just bring it back. If you are caught then you should be punished. If you were to just put it back, that would be the honorable thing to do. Whomever did this took advantage of all of us on a day of remembrance, I'd take it back before we release the hounds on you. Mrs. Deupree, security cameras are very cheap nowadays, I'll even pitch in for one to watch over the bear so those who choose to be stupid will at least have their picture taken.
