Mystery at the library
City Librarian Jessica MacPhail ponders the message spray-painted in purple on the library, trying to solve its meaning ... if any.
While everyone else was taking cover from the tornadoes that swept through Wisconsin last week, somebody was busy painting "help we are being hurt with chemotherapy," and variants thereof, on the library's brick wall, cement retaining wall and sidewalk.
So far, nobody has been able to explain the message. Hopefully, it's short-lived; as soon as the Department of Public Works fixes its power washer it will be removed. In the meantime, if you know what it means ...
MacPhail does wonder whether it might be related -- somehow -- to the most important thing that ever happened on Jan. 8: In case you missed it, she points out that was Elvis' birthday.
