BATTY ENDING INTERNSHIP PERIOD
From all of us here at Yee-Haw, I'd like to say a big thanks to Matt Batty for all the hard work here during his internship. He's been a big help and we're very appreciative of that strong (sometimes dislocated) crank-arm of his. Matt's wild beard and hippopotamus tattoos helped him blend in from the start. Best of luck to you, Matt, with all your future endeavors. Thanks Again, -Yee-Haw Crew

NEW OBAMA PRINTS
In support of the Obama campaign, we've teamed up with the folks down the road to create several different presidential election posters promoting Barack Obama. These prints include a smaller "Barock the Vote" poster up through the large "Elect Obama/Biden '08", printed on the large Takach upstairs. All of these prints are available from the Democratic Party of Knoxville's headquarters downtown on Clinch Avenue and through Yee-Haw.


Also, take a peek at Kevin Bradley's giant 'Presidential Wrestling' poster, with a vice-presidential partner soon to follow. 'Presidential Wrestling' is currently featured in an exhibition at the Pratt Institute's Manhattan Gallery.

FAREWELL
We'd like to say good bye and good luck to 4 of our Yee-Haw family members (pictured above top to bottom): Bryan Baker, who has relocated to Brooklyn, New York in the pursuit of his artistic endeavors. Lisa Higginbotham, who has left her work as shop wholesale manager to concentrate on her Masters Degree in Social Work at the University of Tennessee. Danny Greene, who has just begun coursework and an assistantship towards a Master of Fine Arts Degree at the Art Institute of Chicago. Lee Marchalonis, who is continuing her fine printmaking work while obtaining a Masters Degree in Library Science at Iowa University. All have served as an integral part and great help to us here and will be greatly missed.
