The facts are these: After 60 years in Holly Hill, Pauline Liles is moving to Tennessee to live with her daughter's family. Her husband, Jack, is already there, having suffered a stroke that has immobilized him. Pauline, an old hand at yard sales, was hoping to sell most of their stuff before joining him next week.
She advertised the three-day sale in the newspaper, but when she went to the city first thing Wednesday to purchase the $5 permit, it was denied. The city currently allows just two such sales in a year, and city officials said Liles had already met her limit.
Liles and her friends describe the encounter with police differently. "He started screaming and yelling. He took his handcuffs out," Sue Baderman said. "Two of them showed up and said, 'We're going to arrest you,' " Roger Ables said. "He boomed, 'Everybody put your stuff down and leave the premises. If you accept one more cent from another person, you'll be fined $250,' " Gail Halfhill said.
Thank you for visiting the Holly Hill Web Site. Holly Hill is a GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES and a GREAT PLACE FOR BUSINESS.
People need to tell these idiots we will not take it anymore. Any DA would know this would be a no win case. Do not put up with it people, if you let them do crap like this, when will it end.
