Local business owner posts controversial signs
A trailer with signs posing allegations against Santa Fe College sits across from one of the school's downtown buildings.
Barber shop owner Edward Earl Young says he posted the signs, which include the "N-word," to speak out against Santa Fe.
Young claims it's his first amendment right to do so.
Gainesville Code Enforcement officers say the posters may or may not violate city ordinances. They say Young may be protected if the language on the trailer is considered political speech. They also say they may conduct an investigation.
