Image Of Courtney Love Seen On Highway Overpass

POTTAWATTAMIE COUNTY, Iowa (CAP) - On a long stretch of highway east of Omaha, Neb., trucker Rhett Ingram pulled over his rig and hopped out so he could stretch his legs. And what he saw was a stretch for his imagination.

"So I'm shaking hands with the president and I look up and there she is," Ingram told CAP News, "staring down at me like I just stole her stash or something."

It didn't take long for the word to spread about Courtney Love's image on that Route 6 overpass, and soon crowds were reaching the double-digits.

Employees at Penny's Diner even reported having to put on a second pot of coffee for the first time since one of Trisha Yearwood's former roadies broke down some years back.

"Well, she's no Virgin Mary," said waitress Donna Brach, "but you take what you can get, I guess."

State highway workers have power-washed the concrete a number of times since the first gawkers appeared to try to remove the unsightly stain, but so far have had no luck. Not all residents agree with the effort.

"Sure, nobody wants an unsightly stain on one of their highway overpasses," said local historian Chester Reed. "But she's our unsightly stain."

This isn't the first time the image of a celebrity has made news in the region. Back in 2001 witnesses claimed to see the image of Daniel Baldwin on the side of a brick building in Council Bluffs. However, after further investigation it turned out to be Alec Baldwin and interest quickly died down.
