Bring signs back
The lighted signs on Highway 159 had really cut down the number of horses hit and people injured. The Colorado State Patrol reported that the number had been reduced from two to three calls a week to three or four a month. Over the winter, however, someone took three of the solar lighted signs from the highway. The result is that nine horses have been killed since the first of the year and people injured. The usual number of horse fatalities is 10 to 12 for a whole year. The signs are state property, there is a large fine for removing them, and the state doesn’t have funds to replace them at the moment. To the person or persons who have the solar lights, sign and post, please drop them off at the Melby Ranch Office on the side of the building, which will be unobserved. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Anyone who might know who has them, please ask them to return them.
