Solvang School was not in session due to the summer break! I guess they didn't want the gophers in the lawns to be possibly held hostage by this thug.

Factotum - We're not Dutch here! It's a moot point when you're in the U.S. Sorry, but it won't change how 99% of Americans pronounce the name.

its also definitely not how the dutch pronounce it regardless. its more like rahbo with a bit of a trill on the r. the a is pronounced as a short a, not a long a, nor as an o

When you name the bank Rabo Bank, which sounds like Rob a Bank, what can you truly expect. Everytime I hear of a bank robbery I always think it's probably another Rabo Bank. I also think they may have easier locations to make a smoother get a way. But seriously, the name has always seemed to me like being dared to Rabo Bank. Lol

I was going to say something very similar. I always find it very ironic when a Rabobank gets robbed. But that being said, I do hope they find the suspect soon.

Not saying anything against allowing the description of course, I just meant that if there’s any picture from the bank, it could possibly be more helpful. (Sorry Roger)
