Not trying to be debbie downer or anything but Mr. Bowden passed away almost 2 months ago...Where have you guys been?

My only hope is that his estate will continue to fight this with the TOC. I think for people following this story (regardless of what side you were/are on) that sign was symbolic.

We have been in COpper Harbor, Michigan and just returned last Saturday.

Seems some news doesn't travel far?

The N&O article about the sign coming down was posted 29Jul2011, this thread was started on the same day. I realize it's been two months since the owner passed away, but I don't see any issue in expressing that you are sorry that he passed away on this thread.

I think most people are genuinely sad to see anyone pass away. Even though I am happy that the sign is coming down, I am sorry that home owner died.. Cancer sucks.

He put the sign on his house because the road work caused water damage to his basement. If that is the case the town should have fixed the problem.

Just browsing through some forums and came across this. I know its a dead topic, but if I die defending americans freedom, and protesters are allowed to picket my funeral within ear and eyeshot of my mouring friends and family, then you should be able to spray paint whatever the hell you want on your house.

First of all, the water damage was a documented problem in his house before the road work. Second, the town did offer to fix the problem but he refused to accept. The only thing he wanted was for the town to buy his house and the town refused to do that.

I guess I haven't heard the whole story. I've read several articles about this and none of them mentioned what you said. I heard the town blamed the damage on his gutters, there was nothing about Cary offering to fix the problem or him wanting Cary to buy his house.
