An outrageous act


To the Editor:

A couch and chair were dumped the evening of May 19 at the edge of Crystal Lake in Oak Bluffs. This act is outrageous.

Crystal Lake is one of the most scenic natural resources of our town. How can any resident — and clearly this is not the transgression of a tourist or seasonal visitor — be so cavalier and disrespectful to our Island?

If anyone knows who did this, please contact the newspaper and ask that it be reported. Apparently we need to shame people into caring for and preserving the Vineyard.
