    The following "packet" was dropped in my drive last night. Was in a stapled plastic bag with the pages shown below inserted.

    Shucks! I didn't get my packet. See what you miss by living in a condo?

    And we wonder why we can't get lots of people interested in local politics in Walton County. Who would want to participate in this kind of low level crap?

    On another note, the YES campaign signs seem to be "collectors' items" now since quite a few have disappeared. Look, I know this YES campaign will be a historic game changer in Walton County (whether or not the referendum passes), and I guess there are some people who want a souvenir, but please just leave the signs in place until after August 26th! Everyone's signs, not just the YES signs!:wave:

    Was headed east on 98 yesterday and saw a person placing "No" signs along that corridor close to 395. Was interesting to see them place the sign next to a "Yes" sign and then pull up the yes sign and toss in on the ground.

    Bob, you won't see any if the people supporting the YES side of the referendum doing anything like that for sure. Because we are putting kids before politics.

    Some one pulled up the one I put in place but only threw it the other side of the bike path. It is back up now. It is beyond my comprehension as to why anyone would even consider not voting YES, let alone distroy YES signs. You have to be pretty dumb not to realize the differences between a hired employee and an elected politician.

    At least the illegal campaign materials are getting better. Kind of miss the cut outs from magazines and newspapers crammed together into a barely readable uni-bomber like manifesto.

    There also seems to be a certain amount of TRUTH to the materials. :D

    If you don't mind, I'll wait until you have more than 2 post before I undertake that hulicurlian effort. (I think we all realize you posted under another letter/number avatar previously).

    I've also noticed YES signs that were removed that were previously in positions on corners

    I put a few back yesterday late afternoon.

    that sort of activity shows how desperate the people are.

    I think this response pretty much sums up what Andy A means.

    Thanks John. It makes you wonder what kind of miscreant would use the fool's gold of 'preserving your right to vote' as the backbone of her political cause yet have no problem trampling on free political speech.

    Really? Then maybe you can define "hulicurlian" for me. I get the Thinker part, but the Independent not so much.

    My YES sign has been stolen. It must take some kind of idiot to come on private property and take a sign urging all to vote for a NEEDED referendum. If WINGS has more signs I will take one and if I find someone taking it off my property, I will press charges.

    It's a badge of honor Andy - so far people have driven by my home - loved the sign so much that they carried one home to display. Either that or they are biodegradable. They don't touch my neighbors Yes sign. Interesting !

    I'm on my 4th sign.
