“`A Ronald McDonald  statue that was stolen from a  McDonald’s in New Jersey last month has been found.  But, authorities are keeping mum about where it was found, and who took it.  The iconic life-size statue of the clown sitting on a park bench has welcomed customers for over two decades.

“`Hunterdon County prosecutors say the 250-pound fiberglass statue was taken from a  McDonald’s located in the hamlet of Clinton. They announced that it had been found but declined to comment further. A $500 reward had been offered for information about the theft.

“`Restaurant owners Phil and Diane Koury say the statue wasn’t damaged. They plan to move it to a secure location, and will have it refurbished and repainted as part of ongoing restaurant renovations. This Center Street McDonald’s location is scheduled to reopen Friday, May 12th, with an official event in the middle of June.

“`Ronald McDonald was created around 1963 when a McDonald’s location in Washington, D.C. decided to boost its business by sponsoring Bozo’s Circus, a local children’s program, featuring future Today Show weatherman Willard Scott.

“`Today, the popular clown is a fan of my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series.

“`One last thought… I wonder if the Hamburglar has an alibi with regards to the alleged theft?  Bulletins as they break…

Until next time>                               “never forget”
