TOPIARY-GATE ... !
It's Day 12 and there's no relief in sight in the local scandal insiders are calling Topiary-gate. It seems like just yesterday that newcomers moved into the Fake Italian Villa near the corner of 7th and Alta. At first I thought, "Great, new neighbors, perhaps they'll put down some roots." But no. These people did the reverse. Shortly after their arrival, they uprooted a pair of decorative topiaries that once flanked their front door and tossed them onto the sidewalk for all of us to enjoy. 12 days later, the dead husks remain. I say we stage a protest. Let's take all the dead plants and uprooted weeds in a five block radius, throw them into a giant welcome wagon and wheel the whole mess into their front yard ...!
