Connie Henning, owner of The Framer in downtown Mitchell, sweeps up dirt from the sidewalk Tuesday afternoon. Henning said someone ripped up the flowers outside her shop during the night. She put up a sign outside her business Tuesday morning that said, “What did I ever do to you?” and placed a comment board for passersby to write their thoughts. Henning said this type of vandalism happens two or three times a summer. Flowers at The Little Red Hen were also uprooted and replanted in the pots at The Framer and one into a pot at Cafe Teresa.
