Let’s honor champ with signs

I would like to see pride signs at arterials entering the Coulee Community which honor recently crowned PRCA World Champion Bullrider Shane Proctor.

Such a sign could include Shane astride a known high-point bull he has ridden successfully. The sign might simply read “Home of 2012 PRCA World Champion Bull Rider Shane Proctor.”

A similar sign was recently placed in Oklahoma for the “Cherokee Kid,” Ryan Dirteater, whose career just resumed following injury.

Let’s do it, bullriding fans. I’m ready to donate money to such a timely project that says much more than huge boulders do. Coulee Country has always been Cowboy country.

Good luck in 2012, Shane.
