    "Globe trotting: Here’s another reason for islander’s to be proud." That should have read "islanders".

    I have never been in a pawn shop. I believe the pawn shops are just a legal way for a burglar to use for fencing their stolen goods unless it is a gun or traceable jewelry. I wonder which shop sold the pressure washer stolen from me a few years back? It happens and the shops know it happens.

    I'd have to agree, DottyOA. I went in one time to a pawnshop to buy an amplifier and the clientele was a bit dicey. I got bad vibes and decided to buy retail.
