MOUNT AIRY — The quiet, small-town charm of this South Carroll town creates a paradise of sorts for many who live here.
But in Mount Airy, paradisehas been disappearing with alarming frequency these days.
Three times during December, someone swiped the "Paradise Rd." sign from the post at the intersection with Park Avenue, the Town Council announced at its regular monthly meeting Monday evening.
"Maybethey (the perpetrators) want to live in paradise," Council PresidentR. Delaine Hobbs conjectured, with a shrug of his shoulders.
Other council members speculated that the signs vanished during the holiday season because of their appeal as unique and interesting Christmasgifts.
