Pool slashed

8-7-02

Dear Editor:

I am writing because my pool got destroyed by a knife either Saturday night or Sunday morning. I got this pool for my stepdaughter, who is 9 years old. Due to the slashing, now I do not have a pool for her and have to explain to her why someone would do such a thing.

The people who did this should be ashamed.  The worst part is that they donít have to pay for what they have done. If this was young kids, where are the parents letting them run all night long?

This of course is not the first incident.  I have had my American flag stolen too. "How sick is that?"

It is really sad that I live in the community of Lincoln and canít have anything outside for fear of it being stolen or destroyed.  Something needs to be done about this.

Paula Hall
