    WARWICK-Last Friday, May 20, The Warwick Advertiser published a photograph of a sign that had been stolen the previous Saturday night from the Ashford Cottage Bed & Breakfast, 23 Oakland Ave. Owner Terence Colman reported that he was devastated by the loss, especially since his sister Ann had recently spent a month painting a picture of an Irish cottage on both sides. Just one day after the photo was published, Saturday, May 21, an unidentified woman returned the mural portion of the sign but not the frame and seven-foot cedar posts. "I'm still hoping someone will return the posts," said Colman. "But I'm thrilled I have my sister's painting back. It was the most important part of the sign. And I'm grateful to The Warwick Advertiser for publishing the photograph. I know that's the reason it was returned." If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of the posts, Colman will be happy to pick them up. Call 986-6162. Any additional information should also be reported to the Warwick Police Department at 986-3423.
