Theft of statue shows nothing is sacred


Brookfield wept the morning of Sept. 2 when the theft of Mickey, a lawn statue, was discovered.

It had provided so many children a smile, a photo op and a welcome relief from the stress and anxiety of the coronavirus. As the now empty swing moves back and forth, one could only imagine the question — why? Did someone believe his / her right to “possess” Mickey was more important than the good-neighbor policy of “protected property?” Or did the thief just not care?

Our home has been violated with this brazen theft of Mickey, and the direct question to everyone is if we do not band together and say “no more,” what “Mickey” of yours is next?
