Village of Elba's welcome sign cut down, stolen

posted by Howard B. Owens in elba, crime, news, notify.

The Village of Elba's welcome sign proudly proclaims, "Onion Capital of the World."

Somebody apparently thinks that would make a fine item to own for themselves.

Recently, somebody cut down and stole the sign.

Until about 2013, the sign is well known for its phrase, "POP: Just Right."  That was changed because it didn't seem welcoming to some people.

Mayor Norm Itjen asks that anyone with information contact the Genesee County Sheriff's office at (585) 345-3000 or the VIllage of Elba @ (585) 757-6889.

Know there is whole butt load of issues in the world and this isn't a top one, yet this still makes me sad. Wonder when someone noticed it was gone.
