BALL GROUND, Ga. (AP) - A new scarecrow of Uncle Si Robertson from TV's "Duck Dynasty" has appeared in the small north Georgia town of Ball Ground. But how it got there -- and who created it -- is a mystery.

The new scarecrow, accompanied by a sign proclaiming "I'm back, Jack!," appeared this week near the spot where an earlier version was stolen. The charred remains of the old scarecrow were later recovered by police and a juvenile was charged with theft.

Ball Ground City Clerk Karen Jordan tells The Cherokee Tribune (http://bit.ly/1a2my4s) that the new scarecrow appeared Tuesday morning. She describes it as "a random act of kindness." It portrays the reality show character standing on a curb and wearing boots, jeans, a camouflage shirt and hat.
