This is pure speculation since I am not familiar with Florida Law, but I suspect this probably has something to do with protecting themselves against suit if they ever have to have someone removed from the property. Think non-custodial parent coming in trying to remove their child from childcare. If the church calls the police to have the person removed they might be able to sue saying they had a right to be there since it was a 'public place'. This sign gives them the right to remove anyone for any reason.

I see this as the same logic behind requiring tickets to a free event. The tickets are required so that there can be a 'contract' with the attendee that would not be in place without a ticket. Once the user uses the ticket to get in the venue can begin enforcing whatever rules they print on the 'free ticket'.

I would be interested in you adding a bullet point to each days BOR where you explain the leading picture. What in the world made you find a pic of an Isaac doll today? I am VERY interested in the picture you used yesterday, where it is from and why you used it.

Interesting analysis of Boy Geeding's tackle. I think I might recruit that parent as an assistant coach.

As for the woman complaining about the school...that chaps me. We live near an airport and train tracks...that have been her long before our area was anything more than pastures. A few people get on the community site and complain about noise and inconvenience. I cannot tell you how many times I have typed (and deleted) a response asking them if they were actually dumb enough to think trains and planes would be silent...or were they just bad enough home buyers that they did not do their due diligence before purchasing a house.

Regarding the FB Dallas ad budget. A close family member helps non-profits with their advertising (no work with FB Dallas). I was very surprised to learn how cheap TV ads really are. I am sure FBD's staff produces the ads and after that it is just a matter of buying the time. As you would guess, certain time slots/shows/stations are more expensive than others. However, if you are willing to allow the station to place your ad anywhere they have a gap (rather than a specific time) it can be very cheap...as in less than $20 per run. It also matters if you are trying to cover Texas, Dallas, North Dallas or an even smaller region (cable providers can be very specific about where they run your ad)

Yeah, you cannot just through the Cal Ripken-Stripper Pole reference out there without providing more detail. I know Google is full of rabbit holes...but how in the world did you get THERE?

Was your random quote a quote of the actual quote...or did your version have a typo? If an actual quote, wow...what does it mean?

Reading that vote tally, I wonder how many of those Dems would still be Dems today? My memory is that most were pretty conservative Ds, and with the general Dem Party shift to the left since then would they have remained in the party. Also, as Texas became solidly Red, how many would have left the Dem part for purely practical reasons...they wanted to get elected and it became harder and harder for a D in Texas due to straight ticket voting.

Would you have not it as a Yoot, or is that wisdom that has come with age?

My job has fingers in the Grocery industry. I am truly surprised more businesses do not follow the Aldi model. Carts are EXPENSIVE and paying 'baggers' to gather them from the parking lot is expensive. This simple approach means that the majority of the carts make it back to the store front with no expenditures from the store. Brilliant...and it definitely contributes to their lower prices. Yes, a quarter is not much, but looking in their lot proves that this little investment incents users to return their cart and get their quarter.

Also, my wife tells me that the 'pay it forward' movement can be found here. A number of times she has found a cart 'returned', but with the quarter still in it. Apparently some people have pity on quarter-less people like you and are willing to invest in your being able to use their quarter.
