That was until this past weekend.
Strangely, ALL the signs disappeared in the middle of the night. Now it's possible that this was just an ill-conceived teen prank. However that doesn't seem to be the likeliest explanation. As much as I hope it's not the case, this seems more like some nasty community vigilante-ism.
We can debate the merits of the signs themselves but people are entitled to their opinions and should be free to express them. Certainly there have been a number of local signs posted that promote the "save the farm" cause. But whatever someone's personal opinion is on a particular topic, it's not okay to steal personal property or attempt to stifle speech. That's just wrong. And it makes the folks who are trying to engage in a meaningful discussion about the merits of having a farm look like they are engaging in petty thievery to make their case. Even if they aren't. It's really just sad.
