Many Newmanistas keep a garden of some kind - tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, prickly pear, beans and so forth. Unfortunately, thieves are looking to reap an undeserved bounty.
Adrian Guerrero who lives in the 2500 block of Richmond wrote: "My daughter and I recently planted sunflowers in our front yard as a nice father daughter activity. We have cared for the plants and have seen them grow to 6 feet now. This very week the first sunflower emerged and sadly the entire stock was stolen this morning from my front yard in the 7 a.m. hour. Hopefully this letter will give some warning to the rest of the neighborhood and prevent any further thefts."
