To the Editor:
I always thought honesty is the best policy, and thou shall not steal, but apparently some people in town don’t believe that.
Short story: I was in Walgreens in Sycamore on March 1, to pick up my asthma meds. There was a big problem with Medicare and Cigra not approving my meds that I have always had. After more than half an hour, and calls to Cigra, Medicare and my doctor, plus Walgreens’ third-party billers, I finally got my meds.
I am disabled. I use a cane. I had my pink paisley cane in my cart at Walgreens. I was so frustrated over my meds issue I forgot my cane in my cart. I got home. No cane! I called Walgreens. No cane! I went back to the store where two employees and I searched for my cane. No luck!
Someone stole my cane!
The cane cost me more than $40 to replace. I had to go to Lehan’s in DeKalb to buy a replacement cane. Fortunately, they had another just like the one that was stolen.
So to the person who stole my cane from Walgreens, I guess you don’t have a conscience or believe in turning in a lost item. You just helped yourself to a freebie.
I hope you can enjoy my $40 cane or do the right thing and mail me the $40 I am out.
You can send money anonymously to the Daily Chronicle, 1586 Barber Green Road, DeKalb, IL 60115, with a note to reimburse me. They have my address. I don’t need your name.
All I can say is shame on you for stealing a cane for your own gain.
