|Three Lakes’ billboard is false advertising|
I was driving north on Highway 45 near Clintonville the other day and saw a full-sized billboard for Three Lakes. There amid a resplendent lake scene is a guy paddling a kayak away from the viewer. In the picture the sun is out, and the water is calm.
The billboard is well done, and conveys an air of quiet, peace, tranquility and even solitude. The side bar reads, “Come and connect with nature,” and below this “. . . and with some of the best things in life.” Check it out the next time you drive back from Chicago or Milwaukee.I guess that the billboard will have to be changed now that an ordinance has been passed to allow all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) on all town roads all the time. This should be done to avoid a false advertising lawsuit from those who will be returning soon, and from anyone else who has booked a “rest and relaxation” vacation with their family in the Three Lakes area.
Lawsuits are expensive. Besides, I think the local residents should be saving money to pay the extra liability insurance premiums that will be buried somewhere in their tax bills.
