If the owners had any respect for the people of Owen County and were desent people, they would not be fighting this. Look who you are dealing with he isn't even from here and she don't care. I think it is sad that they are not willing to move the sign. It is a disgrace to the Funeral Home and Owen residents.

I think they shouldn't have to remove the sign, they pay taxes just like you and I.......the city knew they wanted to put sign up and they approved it, if they didn't the sign wouldn't be there to start with. Get a life....m Donald and new funneral home has a sign to rooted their business why not the pool hall it's not on. Their property it's on the city's just another way for the bit shots to run this small town.

I think it's more of a moral/tact issue. You have the pretty old library, churches, historical homes, and then BACON an' EGGS!!!!! Lit up amongst... Might be legal, but use some sense..

It is more of a moral thing and as you can tell..the owners of the pool hall have no morals or resoect....The funeral home sign i'm quite sure is located in their yard not down there on the sidewalk at the pool hall...

Come on folks. Really?! It could there because they are on a back street and no one would see the sign if they put in their "yard". Most likely they didn't mean any disrespect by putting it next to the funeral home. They are just trying to attract customers such as those not from the county and don't know it is there. If it was such a big deal, the funeral home can take it to court to have it removed. I'm sure this county has bigger things to fret about than a stupid sign but yet again it is Owenton.

No one is disputing their right to advertise, but a tacky glowing sign like that? There are other options.

Revenue is what the Pool Room wants. Therefore I would suggest that we not take them down the unattractive backstreet.
Have the city move the sign to the stoplight/intersection. It has to be off of the state highway right-of-way. And there might be room at that corner without it being blocked by a tree.
Turn these potential customers west. Put a small sign with an arrow to the right on the corner by the
"jail." Make that a 2-way street. That would lead them to the front door.
Put a professional sign in the parking lot.
Change the name to FAMILY DINER.$

This sign tells me that the new owners have lost business. Patsy and Ralph never needed a sign and they stayed packed!

looks like they would have enough get up about themself and move the sign not hire a lawyer to keep the sign. It is sad that the Funeral Home had to hire a lawyer over something that the Pool Hall owners should have taken care of. We no longer go to the pool hall. The sign needs to be moved and the owners should have more respect than what they do for Owen Countians especially if they want to generate business..

Good lord, you people are ridiculous. It was approved BY THE COUNTY! If they thought it was disrespectful to "Owen Countians" to put the sign there, it wouldn't be. I think the McDonalds sign is tacky and disrespectful so now I want it removed (insert sarcasm). And really? Why do you think the pool hall has new owners? Duh!! Because the previous ones couldn't afford to keep running it. No need to bash on others just because they want to make a change. How about this, since so many seem to have an issue with it, start a petition to have the sign either moved or removed. Quit griping about it and do something about it!

No need to start petition to remove sign. Funeral home has a lawyer.
Justice will be served and the sign will come tumbling down to applause by the community.

The sign is there. It was put there with approval. Why are you so adanant about removing it? Why bash the owners? Life is very very short, handle it with prayer.
