Letter: Watch for Bears?

Maury Lewis writes:
Driving down 55 South somewhere around Road Side Park is a printed sigh in BOLD RED LETTERS and it reads "WATCH FOR BEARS". Have bears been seen there, or is there another reason for the sign? --melewi
Comments re: KDFW: Most problems involving bears are preventable

Maury, thanks for writing -- we're not sure how that sign came to be posted. Based on the map from KDFW, Hwy 55 South would be the route from Adair County into Resident Bear Range, although we can't remember seeing those signs at any other Russell County boundary. Hopefully a reader can chime in with more information. --Pen.
