Four Genesee Township men were sentenced Thursday morning to three months in the Saginaw County Jail and 36 months of probation after they admitted to vandalizing a Christmas display at Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth . . . The four who pleaded guilty paid their share of $18,081.49 in restitution for the repair and replacement of more than 50 figurines that were destroyed, including a nativity scene and wire cross. Wayne Bronner, the store president and CEO, spoke at the sentencing and asked for leniency.

Mr. Bronner is a better sport than I would be. I don't understand this kind of evil. Why would anyone think this was fun? I know some folks will say maybe the perpetrators had a bad childhood or something, but how would this kind of destruction correct that for them? Anyway, sorry, I'm going on and on here. I'm glad they paid for the damages and hopefully everyone moves forward as better people.
