Dinosaur Store Sign Gets National Attention

'We want America to do well'
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA — In the wake of the recent execution of former UCF student Steven Sotloff, local business owner Steve Cayer took to his store’s marquis to show his frustration with President Barack Obama.
Cayer, owner of the Dinosaur Store in Cocoa Beach, explained the inspiration behind this sign.
“My wife and I were watching the nightly news and we saw the second be-heading,” Cayer said.
“We just couldn’t believe what we were watching. I didn’t vote for President Obama but I was willing to give him a chance. We were just so frustrated with how he has failed to lead this country and other countries and terrorists are just pushing us around. We feel like we’ve lost our country. We want America to do well, because when America does well, we do well.”
Cayer told Space Coast Daily that within an hour of our Facebook post, he received a remarkable amount of feedback, including customers outside of Florida.
“I had one lady on the phone who called me and told me she saw the post up in Ohio,” he said. “Our phone has just been ringing off the hook.”
The Dinosaur Store is in the midst of a second story addition that will feature a non-profit museum with displays of dinosaur fossils and other artifacts.
