Vandals Love Yard Signs: Wednesday is Halloween. While it is mostly a holiday devoted to raising the blood sugar levels of small children, it is also a time when older youths wander around looking for trouble to get into. Among the easiest targets for such mischief are campaign yard signs. Mustaches and devils horns get spray-painted onto candidate faces, obscenities get scrawled on issue signs and some just flat disappear, never to be seen again/Jim Camden, SR Spin Control. More here.
Item: East side highway candidate signs gone/Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: Lorna Casey-Kaiser had a disappointing surprise on Thursday. A few of her campaign signs for East Side Highway District commissioner were missing, she noticed. A neighbor helping with her campaign volunteered to check if any more were gone. They were. In total, she said, all 24 signs were missing that she had put up between Harrison and Cataldo.
Question: Do you plan to vote in your highway district's election?
A Berry Picker sent this photo of a yard sign belonging to Cliff Hayes, the Republican candidate for Kootenai County clerk. The sign has prompted some head scratching. In the comment section Monday, Little Red sez of the sign: “Actually looks like a negative Cliff Hayes sign. Wonder if he really wants the job. Don’t know that I would go into a job interview and say, ‘Don’t care who you hire, but you gotta hire someone.’”
Question: What do you make of the sign’s wording?
