I wouldn't want to be the person who brought this complaint to the board. Someone has gone and attempted to alter the natural order of things in Bland County. Hounds bay. And have since the beginning of time. And are destined to forever.
Crowd gets personal at public hearing
Justin Harmon, Bland County Messenger
At the February meeting of the Bland County Board of Supervisors, a lively crowd filled the courtroom. When the time came for the public comment time, many people told the board exactly how they felt about a proposed noise ordinance.
The crowd was overwhelmingly displeased with the regulation proposed at the December 2005 meeting. The ordinance, which was designed to combat excessive noise, didn't sit well with those at the meeting.
One of the biggest concerns among the citizens who spoke was the section that pertained to animals. Eddie Hoge said that it was nothing but a dog law and Mary Stowers said you can't shut dogs up. (link)
Now if the board wanted to pass an ordinance prohibiting cows from bellerin' and the crows from their incessant cawing, well I'll be right there with them then.
