What a shame! This bench was handmade as a memorial to a beloved colleague, place in a shady area overlooking a peaceful and picturesque field at the Lane Street meadow , but it couldn't remain unsullied for long. I guess some kids find it amusing to desecrate some things that are not theirs. Would they do this to their parent's gravestones?
I've seen teens hanging around, friendly enough and by all appearances just enjoying the location away from the streets. Maybe it's the same kids, maybe not. If we were ever to find out who they were, I would like to see them made to sand down and refinish the bench to our satisfaction, instead of a slap on the wrist and a half-hearted warning. If only I were king!

  1. Girl Scout Troop 363 picked up two large bags of litter at the end of that unmarked side trail along the river where kids had partied earlier this summer. We also removed the fire ring.
