  • LOT OF TROUBLE: Big Dam Bridge rider reports parking lot theft.
Sporting Life Arkansas features an account by Stacy Margaret Jones, victim of a car burglary after she parked at at the Big Dam Bridge for a two-hour bike ride.

She rode past her car a couple of times. Lots of people were out and about that day. Her car was full of junk and her wallet and purse were stuffed in a jacket under a seat, but it didn't deter thieves who broke a window, found the handbag and took off with it. Not much by way of financial loss except the leather accessories; a lot by way of lesson.

My own experience with car thefts told me long ago that a locked car is an invitation. I did better when I resolved never to leave anything of value in a car and to leave cars unlocked. Saves on glass repair. Who knew a thief would walk off with my prized wooden discus once? May he hurl in peace.
