The road sign says...

   +--------------+
   | Pine       3 |
   | Payson    19 |
   | Phoenix  109 |
   +--------------+
   the numbers are:  3  19  109

   This is a PrimeRS because all the numbers are prime numbers.

   rs42Eval:  floor((109 + 19) / 3) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  109 - 19 * 3 = 53-1
   * RoadHacker was 53 years young when he found this road sign.

   * reverse_digits(n) = the digits of n reversed
   * domain:  n must be a prime number; however, exceptions have
              been made for this BARS in order to create rsEvals

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  reverse_digits(109 - 19 - 3!) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc rsHwyEval:  reverse_digits(summation(3, 19) - 109) = 87
   * summation(3, 19) = 3+4+5+...+17+18+19 = 187
