    I'm so sorry that happened to you. If there are pawn shops in your area, you may want to alert/check with them. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that you haven't already done.

    It was Kyle Wagenschutz, the city's bike/ped coordinator's idea. I don't think there's any federal money involved, but it has something to do with the Green Lane Project, I think.
