Holy Gauged Tree Robin!

     NOTE: This is not a blog site specializing in tree killing issues.... it has just turned out that way this month ! ...

                  ................................................................................


      Anyhow, this is another interesting update about the Oak Tree that someone is trying to kill on Las Olas Boulevard, by drilling holes in it, and filling the holes with diesel fuel.

     
First news is, the reward is growing, (leading to the conviction of the tree killer/driller perp!)

                                  

     
     The reward was $100 yesterday, now the reward is $400, ( details in a second) and the reward is probably destined to increase again as ....

                    

                 ...... TV has picked up the story!


     ......   for a refresher, the suspects in the tree killer/driller case were the Bridal Shop, whose sign was blocked by the Oak,

    .... the Bridal Shops's next door shop owner, who had complained to the city in January about the overgrown Oak, 

   .....   and to a lesser degree, the Valet parkers  from Rocco Tacos, and the church....
 
                ................................................................................

      Today, I talked to all .....
 
    ...  not only do all of the known players confess innocence, but they all have contributed to the escalating reward pot, and they all agree to taking a polygraph test! ( to prove their innocence).

                   

      ....... and, just to elevate this story to a rather weird kind of reality show/ day time soap level,

     ..... a wonderful local business woman named Robin,  is praying for the tree's recovery ( pictured above)...

       And, ... the church, (First Pres), who actually owns the tree, has followed the City's prescription for the tree's recovery,  and flushed the drilled holes to get rid of the diesel fuel, filled the holes with dowels and a put on a covering, and fertilized!


       Will someone please come forward and let us know who done it??

    Is praying for the tree really the strangest part of this saga? To me, it's common sense. But maybe that's whats lacking around here!! THANKS AGAIN TIM for devoting your time to cover these events that affect our communities.

    This brings back sad/angry memories of the sick and despicable act, some years ago, of the deliberate poisoning of the famous and historic centuries-old Treaty Oak in Austin. It's a shame there isn't some way to identify the sociopaths who walk among us, and find a way to either cure them or protect us from them.
