A small yard sign, advocating for something other than an upcoming sale or a political candidate, can carry a big message. That’s the belief of Lily Madrene Hill, a 63-year-old Wichita, Kan., woman who arrived Saturday in Craig. She brought signs with her urging residents to be aware of a sad and disturbing crime — child abuse. “Once you are aware of something, you are kind of empowered that you might be able to help and do something,” Hill said.
