We are losing such a great opportunity to teach both English and Spanish when we abolish non-English signs. Signs in Spanish are giving free and very specific vocabulary lessons to non-Spanish speakers just as English signs give free and much needed lessons to non-English speakers. Without Spanish signs, we are now putting ALL citizens in the county at risk for traffic accidents and overall confusion because folks not familiar with the area won't have any simple signs to guide tham. The Beaufort County Commissioners need to carefully consider the unintended consequences of their votes - just as the voters need to at the next election.
