Is theft a sign of the times?

Dear editor,

Most folks who read the Gazette see my column, but I did not want to include this bit of news in that column, because I really try to keep it positive. So here goes my extracurricular stuff:

Last weekend I taught a painting workshop in Port Alberni and everything was super-positive until we got home and turned into our driveway where I have a nicely designed sign that says: Gordon Henschel Studio.

I should say I had a nice sign, because it was gone! Over the weekend someone had stolen it!

I’m still trying to figure out a motive, if there is any.

Why would anyone want to have a sign that is obviously stolen?

Anyway, folks, I would really appreciate any information that you can offer. Even if I don’t get the sign back, it would be interesting to know the background to this mystery.
