Readers rave about wreaths 100% off, rant about short viewing time of Stanley Cup

RAVE For the Lake City store that put out wreaths the Friday before Christmas with the sign “100% off!” “Free” or “Take One” would have been trite, but “100% off!” was clever, and it was fun watching the customers’ double takes and laughter. Even though I bought my wreath a week before, I still appreciated this fun, generous gesture.

RANT To a local display of the Stanley Cup that started 45 minutes late for a two-hour event, making fans rush by in a few seconds each, a very disappointing way to celebrate a lifelong dream. I heard Seattle got a three-hour viewing window and close-up photos of player and team names on The Cup, that’s what fans deserve.
