Politics and police response


Today, I found several negative political comments written in chalk across my driveway, probably due to the fact that we have Trump bumper stickers and a Trump sign in our window. 

After confronting the artists, the parents came to our home and very nicely apologized for the driveway incident. The teens involved also nicely apologized and cleaned the driveway. It turned into a learning lesson regarding tolerance of others’ beliefs.  

In separate incidences in the recent past, we have also found animal poop placed on our car window and soup thrown on our pickup. 

This letter is a shout-out to great parents and our Newport police who arrived and took a report after the driveway cleanup. We love our police and support fully funding them. Be wise where you place your vote in November.
