Sue and I tried to figure out how to get rid of that sign at least 10 years ago and had all the same issues - property owner, etc. Probably 6-8 strong men and a chainsaw in the dark of the night would work. - Doug McCammish
Doug, when I read your note all I could say was, "Well, I'll be," or in abbreviations Hunter Durham style, "L. i. B." If I replied in emoji-speak it would be the little face that demonstrates dismay/shock.

A decade! For ten years this sign has been needing work and no one knows who owns it nor who gave it to the town. It was a wonderful welcome sign at one time but now it doesn't really say anything good. I'm thinking you may be right, the only answer is strength, power tools and anonymous take out. Thank you for contributing what you know from experience! We'll check with Sue next to see what she is thinking and invite others to share also. If no one claims ownership before the weather warms up, this sign's time for change has come. - Linda Waggener
