DIRECTION SIGNS FOR THE POST

UPDATE:

THE SIGNS WENT UP ON 12 OCT 08. THEY LOOK GREAT. THANKS TO A CONTACT AT AN ALABAMA PRISON, WE SAVED 760.00 DOLLARS ON THE SIGNS AND POSTS.

The reason that it has taken TWO YEARS of talking about it and just now getting it approved is the same old story. A good lesson in refusing to here what we can't do and focusing on what we have to do, in order  to do what we want. 

DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER, THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY TO MAKE #$@% HAPPEN
