Highland resident Joe Hess posted a sign in his yard saying he supports "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson for expressing his faith and beliefs.

A&E announced Wednesday night that Robertson would be put on an indefinite hiatus from filming the reality show for making the anti-gay comments in a GQ article.
