Front yard runners

Beth Ross's lawn is attracting double takes. While most of her neighbors have planted signs touting their favorite mayoral candidates, Ross's yard looks like it belongs to someone who's proud to remain undecided: It has side-by-side signs for Tim Davlin and Tony Libri.

"It's made for a good conversation piece," Ross says with a laugh.

Ross, who works in the state's attorney's office, has already made up her mind--she plans to vote for Libri. But her eight-year-old son, Dalton, wants Davlin to win. She says her ex-husband is good friends with the Democrat, and her son knows Davlin well.

"He loves him to death," she says. "He wanted his sign in the yard too, so that's what happened. I told him after everyone votes we will take one down."

Nearby residents have been perplexed, but they may have to live with their confusion if the two candidates end up facing each other in the general election.

"There are a lot of Libri signs around the neighborhood," Ross says. "I've had several people ask me if I was highly confused. I just told them, 'Yes--right now I am.' "
