Clue #4 (posted Thursday, August 6th)
Oh no my tape let go and I fell. Someone mowed the lawn and covered me in grass clippings. My caretaker found me and re-stuck me with black Duct Tape. I am almost to the top of this hill. I am glad I am under here out of the heat/rain.

Clue #3 (posted Wednesday, August 5th)
I can hear children playing most days, but it is hard to see them from here.  I am blindfolded with Duct Tape.

Clue #2 (posted Tuesday, August 4th)
Rockford is divided by the double nickel highway.  Look toward the star called Polaris for proper direction.

Clue #1 (posted Monday, August 3rd)
I’m not buried underground and I am not over your reach.  Please be courteous and do not disturb the grounds in Rockford in search of me.
