Sign Ordinance?

A interesting little slice of lafayette from spring '07 when a few people tried to make the city council take down our memorial by saying they violated sign ordinances that prevented businesses from putting up to many ads. i like the discussion of lafayette's history of "protecting" its hillsides, i am not sure if it stems from land slides or property owners wanting to keep things scenic.

crosses on 10 seconds of french tv!

Theres a lot of great youtube videos featuring the crosses (at least 32!). I'll be posting them over the next couple of weeks but you can find them now on favorited on my lafayette crosses youtube page.

This one is a french tv segment on lafayette (the name is french, i guess) and the last 10 seconds show our memorial contre le guerre. If anyone can translate the video, it would be great to post

Call for Links

To all the fans of the crosses out there,

So if you have something regarding the lafayette crosses hillside iraq war memorial online or know of something please post the link in the comments!

Presidents Day Vigil 02/18/08

KTVU has a segment on last nights vigil.

I unfortunately was not there but Janine de la Vega of KTVU reports there were roughly 70 people there. They reminds us to remember the war and its fallen even when we are distracted by the economy and presidential elections. 3961 military men and woman have died since the war began. Another vigil is being planned when the number of casualties reaches 4000.
