A sledder walks up the Lemon Creek Trail under a large peace sign in the side of the hill on Monday.
Did the hippies cut down those trees just to make a peace sign?
Those are weeds. I just thought Home Depot was going to put a Mercedes-Benz dealership in that big empty parking lot.
When this happened a few years ago, the city sent someone out to destroy it. They feared it might offend someone. YOur tax dollars at work
How can a symbol of peace be offensive to anyone?
That is not the Peace Sign, it doesn't have the vertical bar does not extend completely to the bottom, it instead stops at the middle point. It's a Mercedes Benz medallion instead!
that the city was deluged with complaints about this, to the point where they sent a crew out to erase it? Tax dollars at work alright: It looks better now than ever.
Random acts of art like this are kinda cool, like the bright zip ties spiraled on stop sign posts downtown. A few years ago, the Lena cutoff hillside had a cute "fertilizer grafitti" with a heart and initials like we used to carve in tree trunks in our teen sweetheart days. Call me an ol' 60's hippie...I've enjoyed the peace symbol on my drive to Costco. To me, it's a peace sign, not a Mercedes Benz symbol. As long as it does no harm and makes folks smile, why not?
