An adult message on a billboard promoting a sexually oriented business that was the focus of a video posted by the Parker County judge has been removed.

County Judge Mark Riley had posted the video on Facebook last week, requesting that the owners of the Temptations, a sexually oriented business, consider relocating the huge billboard that was a half-mile from Weatherford High School.

The nearly two-minute video, which has received more than 15,000 views, shows Riley saying the billboard is inviting high school students to their business because it said people 18-plus were welcome.

“Now, we need to show the company that we are appreciative of them responding to our concerns, and especially so quickly,” Riley wrote in a Facebook post after the adult message was removed. “We should send emails thanking them for being good neighbors. It is not about whether anyone approves of the business. We need to show them the character of our community.”
