Reagan Mittendorf's letter to Santa

Santa shared Reagan's letter with the Icon and mentioned how he always loves when the kids draw him pictures.

Dear Santa,

For Christmas I want Lego friends sets.  Next I want a novi stars doll. Probably una verse. Next I want the purple password journal.  I want McKenna, the American girl doll. I want some new clothes and dresses.  I also want app store and itunes money. I really want a kindle. And the thing I want most is a purple microphone with sparkled designs. That is all I want for Christmas.

Letter: Arborvitae flower stolen from Stratton Greenhouses - have you seen it?

Icon viewers:

Have you seen my arborvitae flower in a cedar box (see photo)?  

While we were in Maine it was stolen from our parking lot. It had to have taken two people because it is at least 150 lbs. And it is a $275.-$300 item, one of a kind.

If you have seen this arborvitae flower in a cedar box,  please call 419-358-6950 or the Sheriff at 419-227-3535.   

 I have already called the Sheriff so I have filed a report on the item.
