All of our customers who have purchased NARLO's No
Trespassing signs, others who may be thinking about installing No
Trespassing signs and interested parties
From: Ron Ewart, President, National Association of Rural
First, we would like to thank all of
you who purchased our No Trespassing signs and hope that they have met with
your satisfaction and have done the job they were designed to do. Over
1,000 of these signs now hang on hundreds of rural lands in 27 states.
With ever-increasing regulations and code enforcement officers and census
takers roaming all over the place, new orders are coming in every
Here is just one example of what can
happen if you don't protect your property line and there are tens of
thousands of examples just like this one. Ask the property
owner of Southwestern Washington State about the U. S. Fish and Wildlife and the
non-governmental agencies (NGO's) Columbia River Trust and Ducks
Unlimited, coming on her property, sometimes in the middle of the night,
removing tide gates and replacing them with huge culverts, pushing dirt around,
removing trees, killing fish, activity that has now flooded her property 13
times, all in the name of returning the river she adjoins to its pristine
condition, for salmon habitat restoration. Was she asked or given any say
in the decision about this work? Of course not. They just did
it. Her insurance company won't cover the damage because it was caused by
a "third party". The "third party" won't cover the damage because they say
they have legal authority to do what they are doing. Perhaps with a
powerful No Trespassing sign on her property, the government and NGO's
would have thought twice before trespassing.
Today, now more than ever, people
need to realize that their first line of defense is their property line.
If they do not defend it, a host of special interest groups, non governmental
agencies and government agents think that it is really "their" land and
have no compunction about regulating it to death, or trespassing on it.
To that end we are expanding our
message about defending one's property at their property line. We have
created a short video on the reasons why landowners
should install No Trespassing signs on their property and it
should come as no surprise that we are including NARLO's powerful,
legally intimidating No Trespassing sign in the video. The video is
YOUR PROPERTY LINE".
Take a look at the video and if you
deem the information would be valuable to other landowners you know, please
forward this e-mail or the video to your list, with any
additional comments you deem appropriate. We would be eternally
grateful if you decided to do so.
All of our signs come with a
suggested "Notice to Government Authorities" that the
property is posted and also comes with a "Public Servant
Questionnaire" that property owners can use when a government
agent does come on their land, to question the agent's purpose and authority of
law to be on the owner's property.
We would also like to add in
passing, that the proceeds from the sales of these signs allow us to continue
our efforts on the behalf of all landowners in America.
Thanks and take care,
