Local businessman Kenneth Bennett, of Bennett’s Tree Service, stopped by The Times’ office on Tuesday, Nov. 8, to relate how he had responded to a recent vandalism attack on his property.
Bennett, a supporter of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, had carved a large tree stump bearing a pro-Trump message on his property in southeastern Alexander County. However, a vandal had spray-painted over the stump with “Clinton 2016.”
Undeterred, in response Bennett used his chainsaw skills to cut a pro-Trump message into a large log, and filled in the words with bright red paint to make it more visible. He had the huge log on the back of his flatbed truck on Tuesday in downtown Taylorsville.
