Maryland 'Blair Witch' town to auction sign

BURKITTSVILLE, MD Mayor Debby Burgoyne said Tuesday that voters in the western Maryland town approved selling all four metal signs in an election last week.

One of the signs will likely hit eBay this weekend, with a reserve price of $1,500.

The others also may be auctioned, but Burgoyne says voters expressed interest in having at least two sold locally.

Film studio Artisan Entertainment had the heavy metal signs made after souvenir hunters stole the original wooden ones. That didn't stop the thievery, so the town recently replaced them with versions that don't resemble those seen in the movie.
