Resident Doug Vocelle found this mailbox at the corner of Eads Avenue and Prospect Street in The Village to be “in a very sad state.”

“I would hesitate to use it for fear that it is not wet-weather-proof,” he wrote in an email.

Local resident Mike McCormack sent this photo taken the morning of April 8 at the south “comfort station” (restroom facility) at Kellogg Park in La Jolla Shores.
