As a lifelong Reds fan, I was excited to attend the Reds game against the Pirates on Friday. However, it will be my last game because of the disgusting advertising allowed by the Reds. Early on in the game, I was examining a replay on the nice scoreboard when I noticed an ad for the Ku Klux Klan. I was so upset, I immediately left! In a city whose racist history is long, I was extremely offended this was allowed into a publicly-funded stadium. I am usually very tolerant of advertisements. If Jim Beam wants to put an ad in left field, fine by me. If Magnum wanted to advertise next to Jim Beam, I'd have no problem with it, especially when Adam Dunn formerly manned left field. In fact, Magnum's ads should probably be next to Jim Beam. Heck, I could probably even tolerate an advertisement of that 2 year old Indian kid smoking a cigarette. But I just CANNOT tolerate an advertisement for such a hateful organization. Please let me know when this advertisement has been removed.
I was recently a victim of a home invasion. This did not please me.

Hello Evening Star,
I contacted the Auburn Arts Commission, but received no response. I would like for this letter to be printed in The Star to inform the public.
About a week ago I awoke to a loud noise in my kitchen. I quickly grabbed my 9 iron and prepared to go Elin on the invader. I noticed my back door was slightly open and as I glanced out the door, I noticed an elderly individual running away from my home. I quickly checked my child's bedroom, but he was sound asleep.
Two nights ago I again heard some noise outside my home. I began looking outside through the window and saw the same man sneaking around outside. I got a better look at him and I knew I had seen him from somewhere, but wasn't able to place it.
However, last night it happened again! Afraid from the previous occurrences, my sleep was light. I heard my back door open and I quickly moved toward that area. I got a great look at the intruder right before I ran out. It was the professor statue from downtown. I am sure! There is no doubt about it! Why is this statue attacking me? Do you know his back history? Is it possible he was previously murdered in my home?
I would like this statue to be moved far away from me so he cannot harass me any longer.
I am afraid for not only my life, but my child's life as well. This statue must be stopped! I have attached a picture of him so you now exactly which one I am referring to.
