For perspective, a generation from now, no one will remember the vandalism if the repairs are done properly. The sooner this act is erased, the sooner the vandals are denied their dubious celebrity.
That said, the sooner they caught, the better for all. If a reward facilitates this, then that is to be applauded. Let's just hope that people are as generous in their support of the Historical Society's efforts to raise the $28,000+ needed to properly restore and preserve the cemetery. Perhaps with greater awareness, care, and appreciation, community stewardship of the cemetery will be all it takes to ensure the safety of the cemetery in the future.

Why not put the $4,000 towards the repair and restoration? Wouldn't that be money better spent?
