Dispute Over Signs Roils Residents in Little Falls
LITTLE FALLS (AP) - Robin Hensel says it's only fair that since the city of Little Falls ordered her to take down signs in her yard supporting the Occupy Wall Street and peace movements, the city should have to remove its "We Support Our Troops" banner from a downtown bank.
Helsel says the issue is not what her signs or the banner say - it's about the central Minnesota city following its own ordinance. She also says she's received death threats for pressing the issue.
Supporters of the "We Support Our Troops" banner are urging the city council to keep it up
Interim city administrator Lori Kasella acknowledges the ordinance doesn't allow banners in historic areas like Bank Square, but says the city council will have the ultimate say.
