To:     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 Landowners
For:     All recipients

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 week.  
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 entitled: "PROTECT 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,

Ron Ewart, President
