DJ's bicycle

DJ, Nicole, and Scott

I've always thought that we live in a safe little town, and that things were also safe, but I have been very disappointed. DJ, Daniel, is our grandson. He has been living in Vernonia with his father, sometimes with us, and lately they have been living in Scott's trailer in Anderson Park. DJ is in Eugene for a couple of weeks, staying with his Mom. Before he left, he had his bicycle fixed up with brand new red sprocket, chain, handle bar grips, a new seat, new white pedals, and new tires, to the tune of $290.00. The bike was a Redline that he paid quite a bit for 11 months ago. While he is gone, his Dad chained up his bike to the trailer with a heavy duty chain. Over the weekend, the chain was cut and the bike was stolen. Scott is afraid to tell DJ. We put the word out and have offered a reward. I have searched the trail around the park. I put a letter to the editor in the papers, but so far nothing. I am really disappointed that someone would do something like that to a 12 year old boy. Shame on them.

That's a harsh lesson to learn when you are twelve. The world is filled with all kinds of people, some of them not at all nice.
