A message to vandals

To the lily-livered, crooked as a dog’s hind leg scoundrels who destroyed the Christmas lights and display at Southwood Park this week:

The volunteers and personnel who donated their time, money and creative skills to make the display a festive and heartfelt happy holiday feature deserve better. Their spirit of community and caring will not be spoiled by your wanton disregard for others’ property, your misguided idea of fun, and your irresponsible actions of destruction.

May the wind always blow in your face, the sun and rain always beat you down and may pretty girls never yearn to hold your hand. Or you could do the right thing and contact the Parkersburg PD and arrange for proper restitution and repairs to be made immediately.

Tom Joyce

Mayor of Parkersburg
