4. The interview with the Superintendent from the school was pretty intesting

She seems like a really nice lady that had absolutely no idea about the signs until someone pointed them out to her. When she found out it was her that drove to each of the parks and personally remove the offending signs. She did not want to wait another minute until a maintenance crew to show up and get rid of the signs. She also stated that in the future when signs like that are placed anywhere on the school district (English language signs with spanish languages one) that she will consult with one of the district spanish teachers to ensure the spanish language sign matches the English one.

I can see that for the most part it was an honest mistake on the part of the school district. But what really bothers me is that it took over a year for someone to even notice. Again this is a pretty conservative part of the state where there are a slew of right-wing crazies. The bulk of our Tea Party members live in that county where Milford is. So I'm guessing there were probably enough people out there that saw the sign and probably knew what the spanish sign had said but figured they liked the idea that 'undesirables' were not invited to play in the park. If that sign was on parks up here in New Castle county it wouldn't have lasted a day. But down in Sussex county it managed to survive unnoticed for over a year.
