Thief stole clay pots

To the editor:

Thanks a lot. Yep. Stolen. I knew it would happen. My daughter hand painted two beautiful 12-inch clay pots for me. One had the Iowa State logo on a white background. The other pictured Cy on a yellow background. They were my Christmas presents last December.

I filled them with red petunias and yellow marigolds. When I set them out on my front steps, I was afraid someone would steal them, and Friday night someone did. So thanks to whoever stole them and made my fears come true. I am ashamed to think that you would be an Iowa State fan. Or perhaps you stole them to sell at your garage sale. If any of you Messenger readers see them, know that they are stolen property.
