Exactly what I do when reporting/interviewing
I will try to drive over and follow-up on this later this week. It is an hour drive round trip from where I currently reside, but I am intrigued now more than when I read about it locally. Anytime a story here locally makes national news, it sparks my interest for the truth. That was how I originally started this venture a few months ago with the Black Friday shootings. It amazes me what is reported nationally and what is the truth. There is nothing like locals or being local to truly fill you in on the true scope of the story. Too many stories, in my opinion, are sensationalized. I willl post any pics/reports I get here first.
She got a letter from the city saying there had been a complaint about her yard.
Please, for any slickers reading this, don't think it's easy living out here. There is no pizza delivery; there is no cable TV (I use a dish), and broadband Internet hasn't been available for very long (DSL or satellite only). Power goes off regularly. If something goes wrong with the well, I have to do without water until I can fix it (just spent a week replacing the whole darn thing as a matter of fact). If I do need the police or an ambulance, it's a 15 minute wait if I am lucky. The nearest store is 10 miles away. If the car breaks down, I either fix it myself or pay a huge towing bill. Sometimes I can smell someone else's chicken or hog pen if the wind is right. Anyone comes onto my property damaging stuff, I have to take care of it. The police clean up the mess when they get here. Ergo, no one does that. At night, there are no public lights; all is dark. There are wild critters running around: possums, coons, deer, rabbits, bobcats, foxes, coyotes, a few armadillos, and the occasional black bear or mountain lion.

You have got to bee expletiving kidding me. No plants over a foot? On your own property? Getting cited for having an inoperable vehicle IN THE DRIVEWAY? I would have lost my expletive. I should be able to erect (heh) a 15 foot tall concrete penis ON MY OWN PROPERTY.
Oh and most places are getting DSL by now too, slowly but surely. So that main detriment is now being rectified.

The city should be made to replace every one of the plants and trees at their expense,As well as compensating her monetarily for the pain and distress it caused her.I can't imagine coming home to see the decimation in my yard,I think I would have lost my mind.
I had to have three trees removed for safty reasons and it really bothered me I didn't think it would but it did.
What the heck is this country coming too?

Here we have a woman, trying to supplement her food stores, then they are destroyed. So what should she do now? Go on welfare? Because if she goes on welfare, then that makes her what? The typical black welfare recipient sucking off of the system.
Some of you in this thread who think she should have lost her garden are wrong. Dead wrong. This woman was working to supplement her home with food that she is growing. If her yard is annoying the neighbors, then why not put up a fencing around the yard, rather than go in and simply destroy food?
If she goes on welfare because of this, then you guys can sit back and cluck your tongue and shake your heads about how she's just welfare scum now.
You can't have it both ways.
