Broken window makes a point

On Tuesday, Aug. 26, one of two glass front doors at Vashon Auto Parts was broken — not by careless gun play, but accidentally, by a rock. “One of our good customers, on a rainy day, spun his tires, hit a rock and couldn’t have planned it more perfectly,” said Stu Luhr, owner of the business. The rock hit and shattered the window, and the owner of the vehicle owned up to breaking the door and came back and boarded it up. Luhr was left with a blank canvas and didn’t want to let it go to waste. “I had to write something honest that no one could argue with,” he said. Many people have come into the store asking what happened to the door, he said, but no one has argued with what’s written on it. - Leslie Brown/staff photo
