The Bemidji City Council in Minnesota has shelved its plans to change the name of the city's Stoner Avenue, where vandals make off with about 15 street signs every year. The thefts have cost the city about $20,000 over the past 10 years, but residents along the street argued that a name change would force them to update their addresses on a number of documents. The city plans to consider anti-theft options, such as placing them on taller posts.
