Both our local newspapers had articles today about the fish that was stolen from the newest addition to the Amato Boardwalk that runs along the northern banks of Little Yellow Creek. The fish was dangling on the line of a Mark Twain'ish statue of a barefoot boy.
The boardwalk and statue are located near Wellsville's floodwall murals. The statue was purchased by the Wellsville Revitalization Committee. It was placed just before the dedication ceremonies a couple of weeks ago. With the Boy & Boot located just on the other side of the floodwall it is a great compliment to the aesthetics of the ever popular Village attraction.
The fish didn't last long. Some creek scum done made off with it. It ain't right.
