Commack family victim of real-life Grinch

Members of a Commack family say someone keeps destroying lights in their Christmas display and they want to know who the real-life Grinch is.

Andrew McKay says he and his father spent an entire weekend putting up all the lights and decorations. Two weeks ago, the McKays say someone sliced through their strings of lights three separate times.

?We started fixing them and then they were cut again and you fix them again,? mom Tracey McKay says. "It's not repairing or replacing them- it's our sprit. It's killing us.?

Police say such vandalism does not appear to be widespread in the area.
