“The goal is to start managing the homeless population within our city,” said Chief James Wickham. Wickham asked council members to pass a no-camping ordinance. “It just basically means you can’t set up a tent. You can’t live in your vehicle. You can’t live in the woods in Nevada City,” he said. That is unless you have a permit.Read more »
In an interview with the Buffalo News, Pete was outraged: “The way we've been treated, I can't say it's anything other than being bullied.” In addition, he actively tried to comply with all the relevant paperwork before he started selling. He called town officials to see if any permits were needed and was informed he didn’t need any. Sadly, this is the third time in less than a month that a food truck has been forced to stop vending in Amherst without a permit.Read more »

Milligan said the year her guest cottage was remodeled — 1975 — her neighborhood was zoned R-2, allowing duplexes. The year she bought the house — 1976 — the area was rezoned single-family residential. Her unit, she said, should at least be grandfathered in.

"I was told by Ms. Burgess I had to get a demolition permit and have it taken out."Read more »

A couple of Ranger Smiths have surely earned their pay by fining a man leading a Bigfoot expedition on Federal land, citing him for not having the proper permit. They then admitted “It’s highly unlikely that he would have gotten a permit if he applied for one. It’s not normal practice to issue them for expeditions to find Bigfoot."Read more »
Michael Stewart said the family was told that they would need a permit to solicit funds. But he also wondered if his cause was being treated fairly. “There have been a lot of fund-raisers for the officers,” he said. “Are they requiring a permit for that too?” On the website, the family has posted stories outlining a disparity in resources between those fighting for the death penalty for their son and those working for his defense.Read more »

Afterwards, the county told ABC 7 they support yoga on the beach, however Larsen may soon start having to pay them at $13.50 per hour, which in return will guarantee her the space there.Read more »
A Massachusetts fisherman pulled in an 881-pound tuna this week only to have the federal authorities take it away. It sounds like a libertarian twist on the classic novella by Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea, but for Carlos Rafael, the saga is completely true.
