Proving themselves more naughty than nice, thieves stole inflatable holiday decorations from the yards of at least two Highland Park homes last week. Overnight on Dec. 1, a crook stole a 9-foot Santa teddy bear in the 3000 block of Amherst Street that its owner had just bought the previous day. And the following night, a miscreant snatched a blow-up turkey from the 3200 block of St. Johns Drive and caused $100 in damage to some Christmas lights.

      This screen name and comment in reply to another’s can make it through the approval process, but you continuously block other innocuous posts in reply to others. Not a shocker that the blog commenting and probably the site visits have taken a dive.
