Point Roberts Crime Wave

I was down at the Saturday Market last Saturday, looking for New Library contributions, when I discovered that in the intervening two weeks, someone had made off with the gorilla, ruffled lizard, and dinosaur that had found a home on the Book Sculpture in front of the Julius Firehall, the site of the new library.

The sculpture has been up in its present size since last year and I don't remember at what point the plastic animals appeared.  In any case, well over a year ago, we showed up at the Saturday Market, and there they were.  It surprised me, since there are always a lot of kids around at the market area, that nobody had made off with any of them: they weren't glued down or anything.  But, then, I got used to the idea that nobody would make off with them.  And now they are.....gone!

And, incidentally, we are still in need of contributions to the library's renovation if you've been meaning to do it but just haven't gotten around to it.  We're looking for gap funding of about $100,000, but we'd accept less, of course.  Checks made out to FOPRL, then dropped off at the library or mailed to PO Box 970, 98281.
