More to Dos in and around Town

- Sears near Remke Market in Newport is closing. You've no doubt seen the humongous sign and walking signs promoting the end of times for the tool giant. I've actually been in there recently and the walls are pretty bare. Tools are still only 25% so there are pretty many of those left. But get in there soon, if you want a deal. They are closing their doors October 24.

- Vito's celebrates its 10th Anniversary on Friday, November 11, 2011. They will be featuring many of their former "stars" who will be attending, and are now singing in places like Beijing, Germany, NYC, and all over the 50 states. Vito and Mary will be greeting guests upon arrival with a glass of sparkling wine in a souvenir champagne glass. Reservations are limited.

- With limited storage space, Bowman's Framing runs an "Oops Sale" from time to time. There are lots of frames that accumulate either from customers that re-frame things and leave old ones behind, or as the name implies we chop something to the wrong size and say "oops". They will all be clearly marked with the size and low price. There won't be much time to do design work at the counter on this day, so if you find something that works, or can be cut down to smaller size so that it will work for you, grab it on Saturday and bring it back later to figure out possibilities. This sale is this Saturday, Oct 15, from 9-3.

- Thefts are still taking place due to people not taking simple precautions, such as locking houses and cars. It'll be interesting comparing this year's crimes statistics to last year's. Maybe it's just the "it's happening now" phenomenon, but it does seem like this is becoming more of a problem. Perhaps as the economy continues to lag, these types of thefts will continue to escalate.

Here's the message from FTPD:

Although there are two suspects in custody who were caught while in one of our stolen vehicles, the thefts of vehicle continue now in the cities of Highland Heights and Cold Spring. Additional unknown suspects continue to rummage through unlocked cars and take the car if the keys are left in it.

We would like to remind you to please keep your diligence about securing your property, especially locking your cars and removing the keys.

DO NOT HESITATE to call 911 should you see anyone who looks suspicious or is going through vehicles any time after midnight and especially in the very early hours of the morning. The common strike time for these thieves is between 03:00 AM and 07:30 AM.
