Thieves make me sick to my stomach, they take what they did
not earn nor pay for and think its a right or think its funny.
I hope that the people on the street set up some alarms and
cameras; catch these low lifes in the act.
Maybe a few signs 'will procesute to the full extent of the law'
a few days in jail might help dampen the criminals miserable spirits!

This is sad, but sadder is the fact that this is the world we live in now. Years ago when I rented an apt in VV I had an angel statue outside my front door taken. When I rented a house, I had lawn decorations taken and a Virgin Mary statue put in my yard that was taken from another neighbor. Ever since I've been afraid to put any decorations in my front yard, no matter what town I live in.

Steal decorations designed to celebrate the birth of the Lord? Yep, you are going to hell.

I would be more than happy to watch over the area and set rat traps for the rodents.

An ancient Zen saying states that, "the best means of theft prevention is not to own anything worth stealing."

Parents, if your teenage son recently came home with unwrapped Christmas yard decorations and told you "a friend gave them to me", he's lying. They are stolen...and you are extremely gullible.
Lord help the punk who I catch trying to steal Christmas decorations or lights on MY property.

I'm very saddened to hear this, we look forward to going to Candy Cane Lane every year. This is real special year because our 2 grandchildren will be going and its the 1st year their really going to enjoy the many lights and sounds that the 2 streets have given to the community each year. Your time and hard work are deeply appreciated. THANK YOU!! I do hope that you continue and not let someone else spoil what so many from all over the area enjoy so much. And again I THANK YOU!!!!

Dang It! Those poor people who give to this community so much during the holidays! How can we show them our support and love for what they do every year. Feeling blue over the holidays and overwhelmed? Just take a trip down Candy Cane Lane and it will lift your spirits and put you in the right frame of mind for a lovely and joyous holiday. These people don't deserve this and I would love to be able to donate some money to them every year to offset some of their costs for not only their time (hours and hours and hours) but also to offset the huge rise in their electrical bills during the holiday months.
Maybe the Reporter could put together a fund for this wonderful, wonderful street.

Thank you for all that you do Candy Cane and Lollipop Lane. We love your decorations and they give all us in Vacaville such joy every single year.

This sucks. Why is it some douche bag kids can't respect other peoples property. It takes one bad apple to ruin it all for everyone else.

Here's an idea for future lawn decorations:
- Instead of 8 tiny reindeer, how about 8 attack dobermans with antlers on their heads.
- Red and green claymores with bows on them.
- Sniper on the roof, dressed as St. Nick.
- Electrify all snowmen, elfs and Cristmas trees.
- Tripwires with holiday lights.

What a sad story, I live in Vacaville and love to bring my grand children there to see all the lights, it's our start to the Holiday Season,I pray that who ever is doing this will put a end to it and return the thing you have taken, remember we ALL have to answer to the Lord for our action's, so if you can't help someone don't hurt them. Everyone be blessed and stay safe, Merry Christmas

Such a bummer to read about this. I've looked forward to Candy Cane Lane every year since I was a kid, and now my kids look forward to it too! These residents give so much of their time and money to bring joy to the community, it makes me feel terrible that they've been hit by vandals. And NOOOO, not the ferris wheel - it's one of my favorite decorations! Ugh, mean people suck!!

Can't say I am surprised. Ever since those folks from the Bay Area started moving up here, bringing thier Bay Area ways with them, things started going down hill.
