Mayor Stodola's car stolen

Posted By on Sat, Jun 5, 2010 at 2:58 PM

One of our readers broke the news first of the theft of Mayor Mark Stodola's Ford Explorer from outside Copper Grill, where he was dining.

A City Hall insider wonders (and I've sent the mayor a question) if Stodola was following his long habit of not carrying his car keys. Instead, he often places them atop his left front tire. That's kind of like leaving your iPod or purse on the seat of your car. Mighty tempting.


UPDATE: The mayor didn't respond to our note, but he told the Democrat-Gazette yesterday that, while he'd left his keys in the car, he had recently stopped his practice of placing them atop the front wheel.

For the record, oldmaninthesea first reported this theft, subject of a Sunday page one story in D-G, at 9:34 p.m. Friday night on our open line.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
