How innapropriate to comment on this measely sum of money which is covered by homeowner's insurance, anyway?
The salaries of the police investigating the burglary have a combined salary of 5 times as much as the victim who manages to get banner sized billing in this paper.
As for the insinuations of the thieves of the hydraulic chisel being HISPANIC, is something that has locals agreeing that they are glad they have such a good police dept. to protect against these likely "illegals".....AND the tools at the construction site!
This paper may not be intended for big time national problems, but it does seem to savor tidbits like this, or baseball wins and ballet concerts.
This will be buried quickly since it has filled space for a week with no one even caring.
