    Thieves steal 2,000 pound anchor, nobody notices

    MILWAUKEE - The theft of a 6-foot-tall anchor, possibly weighing 2,000 pounds from a Naval Reservist Station has many in the western Wisconsin city of La Crosse shaking their heads.

    Not only are they asking why and how it was stolen, but they wonder why no one noticed for months, even though the anchor is in a residential area, facing a well-traveled street.

    Tom Sweeney said the subject came up last Wednesday at a meeting of the Naval Reservist Oversight Committee, which he chairs. The committee, which owns the anchor, is planning a memorial at the station.............
