Blissfield’s Hathaway House’s newly redesigned billboard a random act of juvenile vandalism?
From what I can see, it looks like the vandal repeated a signature in quotation marks – “AR and an arrow or a stylized T” with a question mark immediately below. You can clearly see the typical “bubble style” graffiti letters that could read “SIB” or “SIS” or “SK” and the word “LOVE”. There’s more black colored graffiti on the rust colored strip underneath but, I couldn’t capture it in a pic from the highway.
We may never know who dunnit…unless somebody saw something as they passed by the billboard during the act of destruction. The billboard is located in Monroe County on Southbound US 23 just before exit 5. If you, or anyone you know has information regarding this incident, please contact the Blissfield Police Department (517) 486-4340.
I’ll add more to this post as I gather information.
I received this email from the billboard owners after making the offer to post the vandalized billboard and request information if anybody saw something. In the reply there were also a couple of answers to questions I had.
I spoke with our Sales Rep who handles Blissfield as a client and according to him Blissfield has been a client for years and years. As for vandalism to this sign or any other of our signs in the area, this is the 1st incident.
Thanks for your concern.
Oh, and I also found this…

OTTAWA LAKE — Maybe they should change the words on the billboard that stands along US-23 near the exit to Blissfield and Adrian.
CBS is the owner of the billboard and hold an insurance policy for vandalism, they are the party that will be paying to replace the vandalized billboard. We should expect to see the replacement within the first week of August.
