Distracted By Signs

Posted Tuesday, February 12, 2008, at 8:44 AM

I started my internet search looking for information about permitted uses of Nebraska public lands, and found a link to the Wyoming BLM (Bureau of Land Management). According to the Wyoming BLM web site, 7700 acres of federal public lands are managed in Nebraska but I have no idea where...yet. I've written BLM Wyoming for more information about uses permitted and their managed lands locations and I'll let you know...if they ever let me know.

As I was looking for more information about these federal public lands, I stumbled on a link to the National Sign Center. Since I have a good friend in the sign business in Colorado, this link caught my eye so away I went to see what the National Sign Center does.

To start with, the BLM NSC is located in Rawlins Wyoming. According to their website..."The Sign Center manufactures signs for BLM, Bureau of Reclamation and other Federal & state agencies. Ordering is restricted to government agencies". What I found most interesting was that you can see exactly how many tax dollars it takes to make a sign.

We've volunteered hundreds of hours to BLM over the years, and seen just about every type sign they have, but I'd never thought about how much those signs cost until I found this link... http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/Sign_Center/....

Those signs are pretty expensive, especially when vandals seem to take some of them out often. Too bad they don't also come with video surveillance to help nab the bums that help drive up our taxes replacing what they destroy.
