GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - A cattle farmer is fighting a Gaines Township zoning ordinance to keep a couple of trailer-sized political signs on his property.
A crowd is expected in 63rd District Court Friday as Vern Verduin takes on Township officials who are trying to force him to remove his signs.
The signs, which are visible from M-6, are posted on two semi-truck trailers parked in Verduin's pasture.

And so it has come down to this...the 1st Amendment is next folks.
If the cattle farmer painted, "I love Satan," on his trailers he wouldn't be getting any flack from his local government, and that's a very sad fact in America today.
