Church gets fined $100 per branch for excessive tree pruning

http://www.charlotteobserver.com

Every two to three years, Eddie Sales trims and prunes the crape myrtles at his church, Albemarle Road Presbyterian Church.

But this year, the city of Charlotte cited the church for improperly pruning its trees.

"We always keep our trees trimmed back because you don't want to worry about them hanging down in the way," said Sales, a church member.

The church was fined $100 per branch cut for excessive pruning, bringing the violation to $4,000.

Police attempt yet another cover up....this time after shooting a sleeping 7yr old girl.

Twitter sued for ‘breaking’ UK super injunction. Oh yes.

http://eu.techcrunch.com

New residents get threat letter after moving to a community!

https://docs.google.com

My family and I recently moved to West Michigan and I just got this letter in the mail. The letter is signed by a handful of local big-shots and law enforcement types. I was more than a little put off by the tone and rhetoric contained in this thinly veiled THREAT to my freedom and property. Not only are they all but promising to separate me from my property and limit my freedoms, but they had the balls to also ask me to sign a "pledge" saying I will obey. The blank pledge card, front and back, is part of the PDF.
