I am compelled to write concerning the article i am enclosing from your action line column about poinsettias. I know you do not divulge the name of the person sending it but Here s my explanation. On saturday night april 15, someone took a Poinsettia Plant from the Side of my front door. We had kept it for 7 or 8 years and it grew to 3va or 4 feet tall. Everyone that saw it admired it. It began Blooming in november and had one Bloom on it when stolen. Two people had to carry it and it could never get in a car being so tall. When i saw this question i Felt sure this one is mine. This incident really sickened me. I know there s nothing you can do about it but i feel better just telling you. Mrs. . A. We fairly regularly receive Calls from those trying to locate something that has been lost or stolen. The list includes raincoats bicycles catchers mitts witnesses to car accidents dogs cats even a Green Turtle. Especially sad Are the tales of children left in tears from the theft of their Christmas bikes a two Brothers on Aldridge Street and an eight year old girl in Kearns being the latest to be victimized. We Hope you parents have reported these to the police and keep an Eye on the abandoned bikes the police collect. An and in the paper might re unite some of these lost possessions and their owners but anyone who a pilfer a prize Poinsettia or break the hearts of youngsters with their thievery is pob3bly too incorrigible to be moved by appeals. Incidentally How to care for poinsettias in their Post Blooming period is an annually asked question so the timing of its appearance and your loss of one was purely coincidental. A Pepsi s calories q. I am just As mad As i can by Etc Aust i have been going to weight watchers and trying to do All they said to do. I have been getting diet Pepsi cola which says in big letters on the Bottom Quot less than one calorie per at weight watchers they said you were not supposed to drink this because of the calories. I said Quot it says one calorie per bottle Quot and then on close examination in Little Small letters on the Cap of the bottle it says up to to calories per bottle. I think this should be outlawed because it certainly is false advertising and a false impression at first glance. I wish action line would do something about it. . A. The answer to our february and March inquiries to the Penis cola bottling co. In Greensboro came not by letter but in a statement now appearing on the Cartons of diet Persis. You May have noted the words to disregard the calorie Content indicated on the bottle if it differs from that on the Cap. So ignore that Quot less than i calorie per bottle a printed on the bottle and. If your eyesight a Good enough go by the Cap inscription of Quot less than 6 calories per Al. a a Home with the braves q.

Ashland Street was checked by John Brown of the Highway maintenance division and what appeared to be the trouble spots have been cleaned according to District Engineer Richard Siler. Or a re action q i would like to make a complaint about the article recently in action line that concerns a woman not being Able to buy pampers. I think the City code that prevents people from buying something like this on sunday is absolutely ridiculous. I am not saying that All stores should be allowed to stay open but the fact is the City of High Point is losing Revenue by not allowing these things to be sold and this is a necessity pampers. Come on now that is something that should be allowed to be sold along with food items and necessities. It is absolutely ridiculous for people to be prevented them from buying stuff like this r l. Q. I just finished Reading pampers and furniture and i guess you Call this a reaction i think it is so hypocritical for them to allow the Selling of furniture sunday when you can to buy a Box of pampers and there Are lots of things people do on sunday that Are not regulated by City codes and totally against this Blue Law.
