Ellie Studer, St. Joseph
This past week I learned once again how disrespectful some people can be. I had placed a sturdy metal bench in front of the (Minnesota Street Market) co-op in memory of my sister who had passed away in 2009. The bench has been broken beyond repair. When she was still able, Patty used to walk down the street greeting and visiting with anyone and everyone. If a business had a bench (which many did awhile ago) she would sit, rest and then go on to see who she would meet next. The bench was labeled as a memorial to her. It’s sad to think someone would be so thoughtless.
