Hanging beneath the old Frisco Bridge is a sign that has baffled me for two years now -- ever since I discovered it during one of my drunken "explorations" (I was looking for a shortcut to West Memphis). But as you can see from the scan, a bright red metal sign dangles from the underside of the old bridge. Neatly cut into the quarter-inch steel are the words "S.L. Lipe 1943-2004."

Who was S.L. Lipe, and why is he memorialized in such a strange location ...
