Going out on a limb

Dear Editor:I noticed that there is a $5,000 reward for the Hopkins Avenue tree lopper. I think Judge DeVilbiss was right on, as usual, by wanting to make the bounty higher and to expose whoever was involved.Here’s what we’ve got according to what I’ve read in the local papers: We’ve got the name of the owner of the condos where the view was being obstructed, we’ve got the name of the person who lives there and we’ve got the name of the “owner responsible” who (out of the kindness of his heart?) has offered to pay for replacing the trees, and these all seem to be one in the same name.Now, I’m going to “go out on a limb,” so to speak, if there are any left, and say that this particular indiviual, whose name keeps popping up, is the culprit.I could be wrong, but if it turns out that I’m right they can make out a check to me personally and I’ll come down to City Hall sometime in the future and pick it up.Don DixonAspen
