Local police respond every day to heated and unusual situations. The following is one item pulled from the daily police blotter. PERKINS POLICE TUESDAY, MARCH 20 3:15 p.m. - 3900 block Donair Drive, man, 70, installed a video camera pointed toward neighbor's swimming pool and deck. The neighbor didn't want the man filming because his wife and grandchildren swim in the pool. The man wanted the camera because the neighbor is suspect to spraying plant killer on his bushes along the fence line.

No winner here. I see both sides. Maybe the plants aren't getting killed by the neighbor spraying, but by stray cats. God knows that there are enough of those around to wipe out a national forest.


I too can understand both sides. Last year I spent many hours and a good chunk of change putting in a small  vegtable garden and a "neighbor" sprayed weed killer all along his side of the fence (not a problem) but he also sprayed well into my yard and I saw this happen with my own eyes. He killed many of my plants. I was just heart sickened and called to politely ask if they could be somewhat more careful .... I was told simply that "oh, I hope it doesn't kill anything of yours because it's pretty potent stuff". At which point, I reminded this "neighbor" that I have a small child that plays in my yard, my veggies die and I'm not going to be happy .... the little one gets sick and there is going to be BIG trouble for him. It didn't stop him from spraying. I lost some of my veggies and had to be careful when I left my little one outside. On the other hand ..... if anyone pointed a camera at a swimming pool where my little one played, I'd have a major issue with that as well.


Duh, so point your camera at the fence line not the pool and deck. Sounds like a sick fella to me!


Maybe he's looking for Grannies Gone Wild !!!!
