The residents of Carmel, Indiana could be forced to no longer have their private refuse company remove their waste. And if history has a way of repeating itself, it will more than likely pass with the baffoons they have sitting at the helm. The 'illustrious' city council wants to impose an Ordinance that allows the City to select a trash removal company and tack on the fee on the sewer/water bill of the residents. Of course, the fee has yet to be determined. This is being heard at the June 6 and June 20 City Council meetings.

Every holiday season, Mary Groth performs magic turning her home on North Broadway into a Christmas playground... 30,000 lights worth. She was issued a summons for not having a certificate for electrical wiring. Toy soldiers were deemed an obstruction for being too close to the curb.

Spanish Woman Claims to Own the Sun, Will Charge Fees for its Use

A woman from Spain said she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property. There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.
She wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund, another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.

Massachusetts Hospital Association Will No Longer Hire Smokers

The MHA employs 45 people, a small number of whom do smoke. They were encouraged to quit and offered help while the new policy was discussed over the past several months. After January 1, the new rule will rely on the honor system for enforcement.
The hospital association policy “goes beyond the idea of corporate wellness to say ‘We are simply going to cleanse the workforce of anyone who has a particular unhealthy behavior." The same reasoning behind the new employment policy could exclude people who eat poorly, skip seat belts, or use tanning salons.
