NEWARK, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio woman on a crusade to find her missing dog says she didn't intend to cause the trouble that erupted when she put up more than a hundred yellow and red yard signs seeking help and offering a reward.

Officials in Newark say Jody Gardner violated local rules because she didn't get the proper permit when she posted signs all around town, prompting complaints. Officials have removed some signs that were considered potential safety hazards but categorized the signs in a way that allows Gardner to post them in certain locations.


Gardner met with officials this week to find a way to keep up her crusade without breaking the law. She tells The Advocate newspaper ( ) she'll get proper permits.

Her Afghan hound, Flower, disappeared in December.
